  • MNCs as dispersed structures of power: Performance and management
           implications of power distribution in the subsidiary portfolio

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Multinational corporations (MNCs) are considered as dispersed structures of power, in which diverse headquarters (HQ)–subsidiary power relationships collectively influence performance and management. Yet, few studies have accounted for the subsidiary portfolio characteristics shaped by the entire set of differentiated HQ–subsidiary power relationships, and little is known about their effect on the performance and management decisions of MNCs. Drawing on agency and resource dependence theories, this study investigates how the power structure of the MNC, or the pattern of power distribution in the subsidiary portfolio, affects MNC performance and expatriate utilization. Results from a comprehensive panel of Korean MNCs show that the degree of power concentration in the subsidiary portfolio has inverted U-shaped relationships with MNC performance and the use of expatriate control. However, the results also reveal that these relationships vary between manufacturing and downstream subsidiary portfolios. These findings suggest that the structural characteristics of the subsidiary portfolio are important determinants of MNC performance and management. This study opens an important new avenue for international business scholarship by explicitly conceptualizing the MNC as a portfolio of differentiated subsidiaries and by examining the consequences of the subsidiary portfolio characteristics.

  • Platform-based mobile payments adoption in emerging and developed
           countries: Role of country-level heterogeneity and network effects

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Platform-based payment services such as mobile wallets (Mwallet) provide a unique value proposition to both customers and firms over other digital payment methods. Interestingly, the story of platform-based mobile payments adoption is unfolding differently across countries, with some emerging countries (China and India) outperforming developed countries. Using extant literature in International Business/International Marketing, industry reports, and qualitative interviews, we present a conceptual framework for mobile payments adoption at an aggregate level for customers and retailers. We present a set of hypotheses and derive the explanations using the literature on network effects and institutional theory. We test our framework on a diverse set of 30 countries and confirm the presence of network effects and the differential impact of perceived value, inertia, and culture on the adoption level of innovators and imitators. Importantly, we find a significant level of within- and between-country heterogeneity for mobile payment adoption, which provides further evidence for leapfrogging by emerging countries in the context of the mass adoption of mobile payments. These findings have significant implications for theory and practice in multinational organizations.

  • Sharing economy: International marketing strategies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The sharing economy (SE) is growing rapidly around the globe, but SE firms often encounter challenges and even failures when entering some countries. The authors conduct a meta-analysis to investigate the effectiveness of key strategic drivers of SE participation (utilitarian value, social value, hedonic value, sustainability value, and trust) and examine their relative effectiveness across global contingencies (economic/competitive, cultural, societal, technological, regulatory, and demographic factors). Results indicate that hedonic value generates the most cross-national benefits, whereas social and sustainability values provide the least. The results reveal a complex pattern of global contingencies that firms should consider when developing their entry strategies, designing governance mechanisms, and evaluating the most promising markets. Finally, the authors offer three tenets that establish an emerging perspective of global SE participation: (1) High levels of economic and social inequality between SE participants lessen the importance of hedonic benefits, but enhance the importance of utilitarian and social benefits; (2) consumers are most motivated by the benefits associated with the lowest level of their unsatisfied needs on the Maslow’s hierarchy of needs; and (3) consumers are more influenced by governance mechanisms that increase their trust in providers and platforms in markets with low levels of generalized trust.

  • Managerial metric use in marketing decisions across 16 countries: A
           cultural perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Research on metrics is consistently designated a priority by academics and practitioners. However, less is known about how culture and cross-national differences can potentially impact metric use, which is theoretically and managerially limiting. This work develops a model that examines national and organizational cultural antecedents while controlling for the decision setting. Testing the model on data collected from 4384 managerial decisions from 1637 firms in 16 countries reveals that both levels of culture are associated with metric use but each has varying effects. Our results enable multinational executives to better understand and increase managerial metric use across different cultures and settings.

  • E-platform use and exporting in the context of Alibaba: A signaling
           theory perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Despite the prominent role played by B2B electronic platforms (E-platforms) in assisting exporters, extant research pays scant attention to how, and under what conditions, exporters can deploy B2B E-platforms to enhance their sales performance. Drawing on signaling theory, we examine how the deployment of E-platforms affects export sales performance via foreign buyer contact. We also explore the moderating roles of institutional environment and export growth strategy. We test our model with a dataset composed of a survey and archival data on Chinese exporters that subscribe to Alibaba.com. The findings indicate that E-platform use positively affects foreign buyer contact and, in turn, export sales performance. This positive effect is even more substantial when exporters originate from regions with less-developed market intermediaries or when the institutional distance between the home and host countries is greater. In contrast, this effect becomes weaker when the level of export market diversification or product diversification is higher.

  • Toward a loose coupling view of digital globalization

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The emerging digital context for international business along with rising deglobalization forces have accentuated multinational enterprises’ organizing challenges, particularly with regard to managing relationships with global platform and ecosystem partners. We propose that the loose coupling perspective, which suggests the coexistence of coupling (linkages) to maintain responsiveness and looseness (separateness) to retain distinctiveness, can provide valuable insights on addressing such external governance-related challenges in the context of global platforms and ecosystems. We draw on and integrate ideas from loose coupling theory and digitalization to inform on the key contingencies and mechanisms of MNEs’ external organizing. We show how these insights can be further integrated with other perspectives such as new internalization theory to inform combined internal and external governance in digital globalization.

  • The two sides of cooperation in export relationships: When more is not
           better

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Studies have questioned the beneficial effects of exporter–importer cooperation by showing, without explaining, that it may not have a positive effect on performance. We contend that cooperation carries the genes of its own demise. We develop a model drawing insights from exchange theory and the dark-side perspective of social relationships, which we then test using two consecutive data collection efforts with exporters. Results suggest the influence of cooperation on exporter market performance has an inverted U shape; at high levels, the effect of cooperation on performance fades and becomes negative. Further, this effect is indirect. Cooperation must first influence the importer’s behavior, via its specific investments, to improve the exporter’s market performance. Moreover, we find that lower levels of interdependence increase the effect of low-to-moderate levels of cooperation on importer’s specific investments, and that the effect of cooperation on investments is impervious to psychic distance. Our results caution that more cooperation with foreign distributors is not always better and can hurt export performance. Indeed, export managers should not expect a simple, systematically positive, and direct relationship between cooperation and exporter market performance.

  • Speed and synchronization in foreign market network entry: A note on the
           revisited Uppsala model

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A well-established interpretation of the Uppsala model is that it predicts a slow internationalization. Research has shown that it is not inevitable. It shows that rapid internationalization can happen in some cases, suggesting that the model needs to be reassessed. In an attempt to respond to this challenge, we return to the model as it was proposed in 2009, and look to improve its temporal aspects by reexamining the process of gaining an insidership position and the impact that has on both the network and the ways firms cope with dynamics. The study advances two temporal concepts—synchronization and network entry speed—and incorporates them into the model. Because business networks are unstable, entering a foreign market’s network is not a question of establishing a position in a stable environment but rather of synchronizing a firm’s organization to the dynamics of a changing network. Combining resources across firm boundaries and developing relationships in the business network is a process that is shaped by both time and context. Thus, we use a network setting to define synchronization and speed, and make a distinction between sequential and simultaneous synchronization and integrated and separated synchronization. With these ideas in mind, we present eight new propositions for the internationalization.

  • Brand credibility and marketplace globalization: The role of perceived
           brand globalness and localness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Consumers in Western markets are increasingly critical towards globalization and re-embrace local values. Companies thus must decide whether to continue to pursue global branding strategies and/or rejuvenate local branding strategies. To explore the implications of market globalization for consumer preferences, we use signaling theory to investigate the role of perceived brand globalness (PBG) and brand localness (PBL) as signals of brand credibility, related downstream effects and boundary conditions, across two countries with differing levels of globalization. In globalized markets, PBG is a weaker signal of brand credibility than PBL, whereas in globalizing markets, the two signals are of equal importance.

  • The overarching role of international marketing: Relevance and centrality
           in research and practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Classic business literature asserts the central role of marketing as foundational to the existence of organizations, and further notes that marketing must permeate all areas of a business enterprise. Leveraging this premise, we examine marketing scholars’ contributions to the international business (IB) literature – specifically notable works in exporting and market entry. Despite the overarching role of marketing in business, our systematic examination of published works in JIBS identified only 11 marketing contributions among the top 100 most frequently cited publications. More recent Web of Science data for the most cited contributions since 2015 demonstrate a decline in the number of international marketing (IM) and IB-related contributions by marketing scholars. Our goal in this editorial is to re-emphasize marketing’s critical importance and centrality in IB research, especially with reference to its dominant role in such areas as exporting and market entry decisions, customer acquisition, and relationship management. This special issue is intended to highlight IM and to motivate more contributions by IM scholars, as well as to call for greater integration of marketing thought in IB research.

  • Acting on anger: Cultural value moderators of the effects of consumer
           animosity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The recent rise in protectionism and demonization of foreign countries has increased the risk of brands falling victim to the negative effects of consumer animosity, or strong negative affect directed at a foreign country. We investigate the role of cultural values as moderating the relationship between consumer animosity and willingness to buy. The combined results of a meta-analysis and six experiments in the US and China offer strong evidence that collectivism and long-term orientation mitigate the negative effects of consumer animosity and support the contention that animosity’s effect on willingness to buy is much stronger than on product judgments.

  • Foreignness research in international business: Major streams and future
           directions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Foreignness has long been a central construct in international business research, with research streams examining its conceptualizations, manifestations, and consequences. Researchers started by taking foreignness to be a liability, then later considered the possibility of its being an asset. A still more recent view is that foreignness is an organizational identity that a firm can purposefully manage. Broadly conceived, foreignness is an umbrella construct that directly or tangentially covers research on country of origin, institutional distance, firm-specific advantages, and the ownership–location–internalization eclectic paradigm. We review the body of research on foreignness and track the evolution of its four streams, liability of foreignness, asset of foreignness, drivers of foreignness, and firm responses to foreignness. We call for a clearer conceptualization and a sounder theoretical grounding of the foreignness construct, more integration of the liability of foreignness and the asset of foreignness research streams, greater attention to the multiple strategies firms use to manage foreignness, and the extension of the field to less-explored contexts such as emerging economies, digitalization, and de-globalization.

  • Foreign ownership and corporate excess perks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Using manually collected data on foreign owners from 39 international jurisdictions for the 2010–2018 period, we find that foreign ownership significantly reduces corporate excess perquisite consumption in Chinese-listed companies. We take the instrumental variable approach and confirm this causal relationship. Investors from jurisdictions with strong corporate governance and those committed to the principles of responsible investment have greater monitoring effects. Greater cultural distance undermines these effects. The disciplinary role of foreign ownership is stronger in firms with weak governance and low information transparency. Foreign investors reduce corporate excess perks and thereby improve the operational performance. We focus on foreign investors to investigate the role of international owners in China, a host country with relatively weak corporate governance; future research can consider host countries with strong corporate governance. Consequently, we bring space and process to the forefront of the research agenda on perks in the international business literature.

  • Multiculturals as strategic human capital resources in multinational
           enterprises

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Multiculturals – individuals with notable cultural knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) – are widely assumed to contribute to MNE performance leading, ultimately, to global competitive advantages. We nuance this general belief by arguing that what matters for an MNE’s competitive advantage is not the employment of multiculturals per se, but rather the MNE’s ability to transform multiculturals’ KSAOs into strategic human capital resources by creating complementarities between KSAOs and emergence-enabling factors. Using a 12-month in-depth ethnographic study over the span of two years in two MNEs, we identified five emergence-enabling factors that enable the transformation of multiculturals’ KSAOs into human capital resources and strategic human capital resources: (1) a global mindset, (2) a differentiated HR architecture, (3) the language policy and practices, (4) team diversity, and (5) multicultural team leadership. We suggested that a global mindset and differentiated HR architecture are emergence-enabling factors that enable the transformation of KSAOs into unit-level strategic human capital resources that are relevant for competitive advantage, while team diversity and multicultural team leadership are emergence-enabling factors that enable the transformation of KSAOs into unit-level human capital resources relevant for performance parity. Finally, the language policy and practices were relevant for both processes.

  • Illusions of techno-nationalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Current techno-nationalism presents new risks in international business, amplifying volatility, uncertainty, and complexity for multinational enterprises (MNEs). This study explains how today’s techno-nationalism differs from its traditional form, the underlying theoretic logic, the damage it may cause to MNEs, and what MNEs can do to contain the potential harm. We elaborate on several points: (1) new techno-nationalism combines geopolitical, economic, national security, and ideological considerations, and is thus more complex and disruptive to international business than the traditional standpoint; (2) new techno-nationalism is underpinned by the realism doctrine, which portrays the world as zero-sum competition in which states leverage their power of economic coercion, and does not recognize the importance of technological interconnectivity, resource complementarity, open innovation, and positive-sum co-opetition; (3) techno-nationalism obstructs MNEs, especially those dependent on the global technology supply chain and on target country market contribution; and (4) MNEs can respond to techno-nationalism, defensively or offensively, contingent upon their exposure and ability to manage the risks associated with related policies.

  • International business studies: Are we really so uniquely complex'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Articles in Journal of International Business Studies (JIBS) and elsewhere have argued that international business (IB) is a uniquely complex field. We offer an alternative perspective and evidence that IB is not so uniquely complex compared to organizational behavior, strategic management studies, and entrepreneurship. We argue that viewing IB as uniquely complex is likely a result of what a vast body of social psychology research has uncovered and labeled false uniqueness bias: the tendency for people to believe that they are unique compared to others. We discuss selective accessibility and focalism as underlying psychological mechanisms of this bias. We acknowledge advantages of claiming uniqueness, but argue that it is now more beneficial and realistic to highlight similarities. Doing so will allow IB to import and export theories and methods and thereby make IB borders even more permeable. In turn, increased permeability is likely to lead to further theoretical progress that will benefit IB research, practice, and its positive impact on organizations and society even further. To illustrate advantages of not exaggerating IB’s uniqueness, we use JIBS Decade Award winners as exemplars of studies that are admired and impactful precisely because of their focus on similarities rather than unique complexity.

  • Why the world economy needs, but will not get, more globalization in the
           post-COVID-19 decade

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Contractor argues that the coronavirus outbreak only had temporary effects on the global economy, and that post COVID-19 globalization will resume. We posit that the pandemic will have significant long-lasting effects on globalization. Our arguments are grounded in three observations. First, the pandemic has increased inter- and intra-country inequalities and has reversed trends in poverty reduction, which will intensify anti-globalization sentiments in the future. Second, the pandemic has fueled populism, nationalism, and the return of the interventionist state in the economy, which has paved the way for a rise in protectionism. Third, governmental responses to the COVID-19 crisis have undermined the multilateral institutions that have thus far facilitated globalization. These forces have resulted in growing global uncertainty and higher costs in international transactions. We argue that global value chains’ reconfiguration will result in a less globalized, and more regionally fragmented world economy. We conclude by suggesting two fertile opportunities for international business scholars: researching commitment failure in international transactions and studying resilience, as illustrative examples of lines of inquiry that can help explain why this latest pandemic will compromise trends in globalization that have dominated the world economy for a long time.

  • Revisiting emerging market multinational enterprise views: The Goldilocks
           story restated

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: We revisit the new perspectives that explain the internationalization and growth of multinational enterprises (MNEs) in emerging markets (EMs). Do we need a new theory for EM MNEs' Are the new theorizing efforts seeking the “just right” approach as in the Goldilocks story justified' We beg to disagree. We draw attention to the foundations of current international business (IB) and organization theories, rooted in culture, history, institutions, economics, strategy, and market dynamics to meet the challenges of theorizing the new EM MNE views. We offer complementary explanations on how to develop a more comprehensive approach, elaborate on the underlying assumptions and theoretical underpinnings of extant theories, elucidate their boundary conditions, and suggest how to alleviate the lack of systematic contextualization and directionality in causal relationships. We assert that while some EM MNEs display competitive advantages vis-à-vis their counterparts, not all possess superior capabilities compared to their advanced market rivals; as we exemplify, cases should not be generalized to the population but rather to theory.
