  • Brazil’s ruling party and the internationalization of Brazilian
           companies: Conflicts with Bolivia and Ecuador during Lula’s
    • Authors: Jorge Alberto Malaver Copara et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 4, August 2014. Purpose paper analyzes Brazil’s governmental positions during two international conflicts involving major Brazilian firms and two South American countries: the nationalization of Petrobras in Bolivia in 2006 and the expulsion of Odebrecht from Ecuador in 2008. Brazil’s government officials showed themselves to be not only open to negotiations but also understanding and cooperative with Bolivia. The same policymakers, however, showed no trace of this accommodating behavior toward Ecuador. This paper focuses on the explanatory power of the ideas of the ruling Workers’ Party and sustains that this party has played a crucial role on shaping the current government-business relations in Brazil. Design/methodology/approach This research applies process tracing analysis within two case studies; and content analysis to operationalize the concept “Workers’ Party’s ideas” using 14 Workers’ Party’s official documents. It investigates the circumstances under which political ideas guide policymaking. Findings This work found a correlation between Workers’ Party’s ideas and Brazil’s governmental positions which first benefited Bolivian demands. On the other hand, these ideas found no representation during negotiations with Ecuador. To explain this variation, this study tested the link between uncertainty and influence of ideas. Uncertainty was both an “activating condition” allowing ideas to come into play in policymaking, and a “magnifying condition” showing the dynamic relationship between the level of uncertainty and the level of influence of ideas. Originality/value This study contributes to the evolving debate on business and government relations in Brazil by focusing on the role of ideas and interests on policymaking.

  • OFDI promotion policies in emerging economies: The Brazilian and Chinese
    • Authors: Luiz Carlos Zalaf Caseiro et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 4, August 2014. Purpose This paper analyzes how the Brazilian and Chinese outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) policies can contribute to the economic development of their home countries. Design/methodology/approach The aforementioned objective is achieved through a comparative analysis of the Brazilian and Chinese OFDI policies within a new theoretical framework for examining the developmental implications of OFDI. Both primary and secondary data are utilized to compare Brazilian and Chinese strategies. Findings We conclude that Brazil and China have shifted from a development strategy centered on internal market self-sufficiency to one that seeks international economic prominence by, among other strategies, adopting OFDI support as a part of their industrial policy agenda. However, while the Chinese government has focused on cross-national acquisitions of assets that are scarce within the country, the Brazilian government has preferred to support industries that are already highly competitive internationally. The Chinese strategy has a greater potential to generate positive spillovers to domestic economy. Originality/value The contribution of this paper to the existent literature relies both on its approach and on its theoretical framework. Differing from the majority of the studies on the internationalization of companies from emerging economies, this paper emphasizes the importance of industrial policies to support OFDI and the developmental dimension of these policies. We believe that the theoretical framework developed here can be extended to further analysis of OFDI policies from other emerging economies. Policymakers may also benefit from the conclusions of this research.

  • The transformation of state-business relations in an emerging economy: The
           case of Brazilian agribusiness
    • Authors: Kristen Hopewell et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 4, August 2014. Purpose Brazil has long been considered the archetype of “dependent development,” having served as the inspiration for the classic theory of the relationship between states and capital in the semi-peripheral states of the developing world. Since the theory of dependent development was initially formulated in the 1970s, however, both the Brazilian political economy and the global context in which it is situated have changed dramatically. In this paper, I revisit the Brazilian case in an effort to shed light on how state-business relations have been transformed in the contemporary era of globalization. Design/methodology/approach The analysis draws on 15 months of field research conducted in Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Beijing, New Delhi, and Washington, as well as at the WTO in Geneva, involving 157 interviews with senior government officials, trade negotiators, and representatives of industry and non-governmental organisations; ethnographic observation; and extensive documentary research. Findings I show how the emergence of a highly-competitive export-oriented agribusiness sector in Brazil has prompted the expansion and internationalization of domestic capital, leading to the emergence of an independent, private sector lobby with considerable influence on the Brazilian state. Driven by the rise of Brazilian agribusiness, the state and capital have allied together to aggressively pursue the expansion of markets for Brazilian exports, specifically through dispute settlement and negotiations at the World Trade Organization (WTO). Originality/value These findings challenge conventional understandings of state-business relations in emerging economies such as Brazil.

  • The political trajectory of the Brazilian CSR movement
    • Authors: Alejandro Milcíades Peña et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 4, August 2014. Purpose To examine the origins and trajectory of the Brazilian CSR movement in relation to political economic developments in Brazil during and prior to the 2000s. Design/methodology/approach Relies on a historical political account that traces the evolution of the main actors in the CSR movement since the democratization period, details the contacts established with relevant political and civil society groups, and outlines the adaptation of their agenda to the changing context. Findings The long association between a faction of Brazilian business and the Workers’ Party (PT) and the overlapping state-society relations characteristic of the Brazilian political economy explain the domestic and international standing of the Brazilian CSR movement, in particular since 2003 when Lula da Silva came to power. Research limitations/implications Originality/value The trajectory of Brazilian CSR and participation in related global initiatives cannot be explained through market-based or isomorphic approaches traditionally used to analyse the diffusion of governance mechanisms in the global South. Rather, it highlights the relevance of local political structures in shaping involvement in global governance initiatives.

  • Brazilian corporations, the state and transnational activity: introduction
           to the special issue
    • Authors: Andreas Nölke et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 4, August 2014. Purpose The purpose of the paper is to introduce a special issue which looks at the collaboration between the Brazilian state and Brazilian corporations with regard to the transnational activities of the latter. Design/methodology/approach Departing from the state of the art of current studies of emerging market multinationals the paper highlights the need for inter-disciplinary work in order to understand the particular role of the state with regard to the outward expansion of these companies. The paper then highlights the different approaches the five papers of the special issue have taken in order to address this task. Findings Although Brazil can be counted among the most liberal emerging markets, the special issue finds a very close cooperation between the Brazilian state and Brazilian multinationals. The former helps to finance overseas expansion of Brazilian multinationals, supports the solution of conflicts with the governments of neighboring countries and articulates the interests of Brazilian multinationals in global governance. The problems created by this close cooperation rather materialize with third parties, in particular with somewhat poorer countries in the Brazilian neighbourhood, but also with smaller companies, consumers or radical social movements in Brazil. Originality/value The paper shows the diversity of approaches that an inter-disciplinary cooperation between Political Science, Political Economy, Development Studies and International Business can mobilize in order to make sense of very close state-business cooperation with regard to transnational activities of emerging markets multinationals.

  • The Brazilian sub-imperialist strategy of regional insertion
    • Authors: Maria Misoczky et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 4, August 2014. Purpose The purpose of this paper is to analyze the Brazilian strategy of regional insertion with the support of the Marxist Theory of Dependency, represented by the work of Ruy Mauro Marini because it allows for the consideration of relations of power within the national scenario and policies resulting from class alliances embedded in the domestic structure of dependency. Design/methodology/approach The paper discusses the main positions concerning the Varieties of Capitalism approach, arguing that the Marxist Theory of Dependency (MTD) and specifically Marini’s work can contribute to overcoming some of its limits. These arguments are illustrated through the analysis of the Brazilian strategy of regional competitive insertion focusing on the IIRSA project and the Brazilian Multinational Companies directly involved. Findings The concept of sub-imperialism has helped to understand the logic behind the Brazilian strategy of regional insertion as part of a historical trajectory that includes the re-edition of a political drive for being the regional leader; the privilege of class fractions benefiting from the access to public funds and new markets (necessary to guarantee their continued and increased profitability); the reinforcement of regional inequalities and, at the same time, the reproduction of Brazilian dependency. Originality/value A renewed MTD can contribute to understanding the specific politico-economic strategies of peripheral countries. It can also overcome the limits of the Varieties of Capitalism approach by articulating the economic and political dimensions; by avoiding the structural-functionalist constrains of the institutional perspective; and by allowing the consideration of marginalized voices, rather than considering only the institutionalized ones.

  • A discussion on Brazil-focused publications
    • Authors: Nathália de Fátima Joaquim et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 190-206, July 2014. Purpose – The aim of this article is to carry out a critical analysis of the view that core countries’ knowledge holds sway over that of the periphery and to offer a reassessment of Lahiri’s Anglo-Eurocentric point of view and the implications this has for scientific discussion in the field of management. To do this the authors made use of both Lahiri’s (2011) comments as a representative of mainstream thought and the existing literature on this issue. Design/methodology/approach – In this research, the authors used the methodology proposed by Lahiri (2011), but with some adjustments that they thought were necessary. They also analysed scientific production on management in the most important Brazilian journals to put the field of organizational studies in Brazil in context and to situate the reader as regarding their criticism of the North-centric viewpoint. This is because the authors consider organizational studies as a synonym for management studies. Findings – The results presented in Lahiri’s (2011) article “Brazil-focused publications in leading business journals” are invalid because the sample on which the article is based is limited to 14 academic journals, of which 7 are American, 6 are British and 1 is German. It can be questioned whether this particular selection of journals accurately represents the corpus of publications that deal with Brazil, given that Lahiri does not include any articles published in Brazil and thus reinforces his North-centric standpoint. Moreover, the article emphasizes authors with ties to English institutions and concludes that the most relevant academic contributions on Brazil have been produced at non-Brazilian institutions. Moreover, the authors also discovered a contradiction in the sample that is important for the thesis presented in this article because, in fact, the scholars selected for the sample emphasized in that work have ties to both a foreign and a Brazilian institution. Originality/value – The originality of this article lies in the fact that it proposes to discuss the production and consumption of knowledge in the area of administration in such a way as to reassess North-centric hegemony in this field.

  • CSR in multiple environments: the impact of headquartering
    • Authors: Ralf Barkemeyer et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 124-151, July 2014. Purpose – This paper aims to argue that the on-going professionalization and dissemination of the current wave of corporate social responsibility (CSR) concepts and instruments leads to a headquartering effect, i.e. the concentration of CSR-related decision-making within corporate headquarters. This headquartering effect casts doubt on earlier studies suggesting that the “transnational” or “glocal” model can effectively address the multitude of global and local CSR challenges modern multinational companies (MNCs) face. Design/methodology/approach – This conceptual paper uses a stakeholder lens, in turn, drawing from resource dependence theory and organizational legitimacy theory to develop under which conditions claims of Southern stakeholders will be considered by Northern MNCs. It provides evidence for the existence of a headquartering effect as a defining characteristic of mainstream CSR approaches. Findings – The authors argue that the increasing professionalization and dissemination of mainstream CSR approaches among MNCs reinforce the headquartering effect, with strategic decision-making increasingly confined to the companies’ headquarters, while the scope of action within the subsidiaries and the supply chain of MNCs becomes increasingly restricted over time. Ultimately, this headquartering effect strengthens a Northern CSR/sustainability agenda and fails to empower developing country stakeholders. Originality/value – The paper contributes by exploring how international CSR follows a different underlying rationale than international business. While international business research follows an instrumental perspective, international CSR is driven by both instrumental and normative considerations. Thus, international business theories may not be directly applicable to international CSR contexts.

  • Development or dispossession'
    • Authors: Fahreen Alamgir et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 207-223, July 2014. Purpose – This paper aims to discuss the discourse of globalisation and its implications in the case of state-owned jute mills (SOJMs) in the post-colonial state of Bangladesh. Design/methodology/approach – The authors draw upon a critical debate on the concept of globalisation and critical political economy to revisit the country’s historical, political, social and cultural construction to discuss conditions of its conformity within the global order. Additionally, the perspective of subaltern studies underpins discussion of the context of the post-colonial state. Findings – A schematic analysis of the context surfaces issues that underpin the process of “truth production” and that have contributed to global integration of the Bangladesh economy. We consider how this discourse benefits some people, while over time, the majority are dislocated, excluded and deprived. Hence, this discourse denotes a territorial power of globalism that leads us to conceptualise Bangladesh as a neo-colonial state. Originality/value – Through a case study of SOJMs, this paper contributes to discussion on the essence and implications of the globalisation discourse and on how its methods and techniques reinforce hegemony in the name of development and sustainability in the forms of liberalisation, democratisation and good governance in a state like Bangladesh.

  • A critical scenario analysis of end-of-life ship disposal
    • Authors: George Cairns
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 172-189, July 2014. Purpose – This paper aims to critically engage with the premise of development at the “bottom of the pyramid” through consideration of the current and potential future status of the workers who dismantle end-of-life ships in the breaking yards of “less developed countries”, here with specific reference to the dynamic situation in Bangladesh. Design/methodology/approach – The study applies “critical scenario method” (CSM) to explore different possible and plausible futures for the ship-breaking industry globally and locally. Findings – The paper argues that the status of the workers in the ship-breaking industry of Bangladesh can be conceptualised as firmly set at the “bottom of the pyramid”, and that, for most if not all, this situation cannot be changed within any industry future without wider, radical change to socioeconomic and political structures both in the country and globally. Originality/value – This paper offers a contribution to the discourse on consumption at the “bottom of the pyramid” as a development process.

  • An integrative model of internationalization strategies
    • Authors: Xin Li et al
      Abstract: Critical perspectives on international business, Volume 10, Issue 3, Page 152-171, July 2014. Purpose – This paper aims to critically review the ownership, location and internalization (OLI) model and the Uppsala internationalization process (UIP) framework. We suggest that the inclusion of concepts such as corporate entrepreneurship, host country institutions and regulatory focus in an integrated framework helps to explain firm internationalization. Design/methodology/approach – This paper is based on a review of the literature on the OLI and UIP models. In addition, it presents a conceptual model that encompasses corporate entrepreneurship, regulatory focus and institutions. Findings – The OLI and the UIP models fail to include corporate entrepreneurship and managerial psychology in their analyses. We suggest that regulatory focus theory unifies the managerial strategic choice between position logic and opportunity logic. In addition, host country institutions affect this managerial choice with regard to internationalization. Practical implications – Regulatory focus theory originates from managerial psychology. The model is, therefore, relevant for managers, and it shows how the outcomes and processes of corporate entrepreneurial activity should manifest themselves in managerial decision-making related to further internationalization. The strength of host country institutions also affects such decision-making. Originality/value – This paper is the first to present the concept of regulatory focus in relation to firm internationalization. In addition, it shows that most entrepreneurship-related models of internationalization focus on international entrepreneurship and start-up firms. In contrast, this paper focuses on corporate entrepreneurship and the internationalization of established firms.
