      Abstract: Abstract This study aims to bridge the research on the internationalization of small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with the literature on initial public offerings (IPOs). It investigates how IPOs affect SMEs’ foreign investment decisions as they internationalize. We argue that IPOs enable SMEs to engage in a period of accelerated foreign expansion, resulting in a wave-like pattern, as suggested by Håkanson and Kappen’s (J Int Bus Stud 48(9):1103–1113, 2017) ‘Casino model’ of internationalization. We also propose that there will be a post-IPO shift in SMEs entering less familiar locations and towards taking higher ownership stakes in new subsidiaries. We use a difference-in-differences design combined with coarsened exact matching to isolate the effects of IPOs. Our analysis of overseas investments by a matched sample of newly listed Japanese manufacturing SMEs and their private counterparts provides strong evidence that SMEs accelerate the pace of establishing new foreign subsidiaries after going public. The results also reveal nuanced changes in the location and ownership patterns in the post-IPO period. This study identifies the IPO as a significant antecedent to SME foreign expansion and offers a new explanation for intertemporal variance in the pace, direction, and commitment of the SME internationalization process.

  • Leaving the multinational: The likelihood and nature of employee mobility
           from MNEs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The mobility of workers from multinational enterprises (MNEs) to other local firms is increasingly recognized as an important externality mechanism. However, MNEs have strong incentives to curb this mobility to prevent leakage of firm-specific assets. This research note investigates the likelihood and nature of such mobility patterns. Using longitudinal, matched employer–employee data for Sweden with detailed information on individuals, establishments, and firms, we find that workers employed in MNEs are more likely to leave their employers compared to similar workers employed in non-MNEs with similar characteristics. This effect is particularly strong for high-wage workers and managers. While we find that workers who leave MNEs are more likely to move to other MNEs, our results identify significant mobility toward start-ups, thus leading to important industrial dynamics in the host country. We discuss the implications of these results for research on the externalities from MNEs, and international business theory.

  • A dynamic long-term approach to internationalization: Spanish publishing
           firms’ expansion and emigrants in Mexico (1939–1977)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines how firms with scarce market and non-market resources can succeed in internationalizing, even in a host country that lacks trade and diplomatic relationships with the firms’ home country. With a hand-collected, historical database of the Spanish publishing industry’s investments in Mexico over the 20th century, we find that in a context of suspension of bilateral trade agreements and diplomatic relationships between Spain and Mexico, Spanish publishing firms leveraged Spanish emigrants to internationalize in the Mexican market, initially through exports, then through distribution and local commercial subsidiaries, and finally through local production. Spanish publishers progressively used emigrants to develop social and cultural support, to help establish formal and informal rules, procedures, and norms of institutions and to lobby in Mexico. Combining historical and inductive analyses, we offer a novel perspective on firms’ internationalization through a changing use of emigrants to endogenize the cultural, trade, and political distance between the home and the host country, and we develop new theoretical insights on the social, cultural, and political embeddedness of firms.

  • Family-owned multinational enterprises in the post-pandemic global economy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Contractor (J Int Bus Stud, 2022 ) argues that the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated changes in the world economy that had already started, and that the fundamental rationale for globalization remains. Although we agree with much of Contractor’s analysis and conclusions, we argue that in the case of large family-owned multinational enterprises (MNEs), international behavior after the pandemic is likely to be varied, reflecting the strategic persistence and the heterogeneity of the goals, governance, and resources of these firms compared to nonfamily firms. We therefore complement Contractor’s article by discussing why most large family MNEs will pursue strategies that are consistent with globalization, but some will pursue strategies that move them in the opposite direction.

  • The local roots of global entrepreneurship: Insights from Stephen Young

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract A contemporary challenge for the international business (IB) field is to maintain a link between the global activity of firms and the local concerns of regions and communities. In this essay, we reflect on how the IB scholarship of the late Stephen Young, which was embedded in (but not confined to) Scotland, offers valuable insight into how this might be done. With an overarching interest in the role of IB in economic development, the common thread in his work on multinational enterprise (MNE) subsidiaries and internationalizing small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is the significance of locally relevant entrepreneurial behavior in internationalized firms, which we refer to as “the local roots of global entrepreneurship”. We highlight three facets of his work: (1) the scholarly approach, which was sustained, engaged, and broad-based, (2) the conceptual ideas around the purpose, process and people involved in MNEs and SMEs, and (3) the resonance of these ideas with contemporary IB topics. Our analysis indicates that the emergent body of work on cooperation between MNEs and SMEs (especially new ventures) constitutes an extension and integration of Young’s IB scholarship. An overall implication of our essay is that perhaps, counterintuitively, the future interests of IB research may be served well by paying closer attention to one’s own backyard.

  • Foreign direct investment along the Belt and Road: A political economy
           perspective

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In 2013, China launched its ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), a large portfolio of infrastructure projects across 71 countries intended to link Eurasian markets by rail and sea. The state-led nature of the Initiative combined with its transformative geopolitical implications have conditioned the type of engagement that many governments and firms in host and third countries are willing to take in Chinese-funded BRI projects. Building on two theoretical streams that have originated in international political economy but have received growing attention in international business, varieties of capitalism and geopolitics, this perspective shows how a greater understanding of the institutional and geopolitical context surrounding BRI helps decipher the selection of host-country firms and third-country MNEs in Chinese-funded BRI projects. We portray firm selection in a BRI project as the outcome of a one-tier bargaining game between China and a host country. We show how institutions and geopolitics influence both the legitimacy gap of Chinese SOEs in a host country and the host country’s relative bargaining power, affecting the likelihood that host firms and third-country MNEs are selected in BRI projects. We also discuss the geopolitical jockeying strategies that these firms can adopt to influence the outcome of the bargaining game.

  • The event study in international business research: Opportunities,
           challenges, and practical solutions

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The event study or event study method (ESM) is an empirical technique for capturing investors’ reaction to an event affecting one or more publicly traded firms. The ESM has been little employed in international business (IB) research despite its frequency in accounting, economics, and finance; for example, only two percent of the empirical articles in JIBS over 1970–2019 include an event study. While this scarcity could indicate a lack of demand, we argue that the field of IB studies offers many interesting and important research opportunities for an event study. We believe that the challenges arise primarily from the supply side, because conducting an event study involves overcoming a variety of data and analytical hurdles. We examine these methodological challenges and offer practical solutions designed to encourage adoption of the ESM. An online appendix with coding and examples provides additional resources.

  • Complexity in a multinational enterprise’s global supply chain and its
           international business performance: A bane or a boon'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The literature on marketing, operations management, and strategy has investigated the impacts of a firm’s supplier network structure and complexity on its financial, environmental, and innovation performance. However, our understanding of how the global supply chain complexities of a multinational enterprise (MNE) affect its international business performance (IBP) is limited. We draw on both the business network theory and information search literature to propose that the various complexity dimensions (e.g., horizontal, vertical, and spatial) of an MNE’s global supply chain have different influences on its subsequent IBP. We argue – and empirically validate – that collaboration, a network orchestration mechanism, enables an MNE to leverage the benefits of complex relationships. Using a dataset of 185 firms taken from multiple industries over 6 years, we show how such complexities have differential effects. In multiple post hoc analyses, we demonstrate how an MNE’s marketing intensity, the interconnectedness among its supply members, and its top management team (TMT)’s international experience all have unique impacts. This study contributes to the existing literature on global supply chain complexity by demonstrating how it can influence MNEs’ IBP. Moreover, we contribute to the strategic IBP literature by outlining effective global supply chain improvement strategies.

  • New connectivity in the fragmented world

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We are entering a significantly fragmented world that is full of extreme disruptions and adversities. New connectivity in digital form proves the essential characteristic to help international businesses better cope with these disruptions. This connectivity signifies a dominant feature of the new era of international business and a critical catalyst to address new uncertainties in today’s fragmented world. However, this new normal raises a series of complex issues that extend the IB research agenda. This article illustrates this connectivity’s conceptual components, theoretical framework, and broad implications for IB research. We further show how MNEs leverage new connectivity to bolster competitive vitality and organizational adaptability when facing unprecedented uncertainties in a fractured and fragile world. This study also offers insights into digital ways of improving cross-border resilience. We conclude with suggested avenues for future research and potential steps.

  • Beyond the nation-state: Anchoring supranational institutions in
           international business research

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we broaden the conceptualization of institutions beyond the nation-state and develop the concept of an institutional triality that represents two national institutional environments and the supranational level. While much of international business (IB) research has focused on national institutions and the differences between them, little attention and theorizing has been dedicated to the supranational institutions that form an integral part of the global institutional ecosystem. First, we conduct an interdisciplinary bibliometric survey on supranational institutions and a qualitative review of the central publications. Second, we initiate theory building and conceptualize supranational institutions from an IB point of view, distinguish them from related IB concepts, and discuss the conceptual properties of supranational institutions that are most relevant for MNCs. Building on these distinctions and properties, we provide a conceptual framework for understanding supranational institutions in the institutional triality. Third, we provide avenues for IB research building on the delineations, the conceptual properties, and the conceptual framework.

  • Cognitive sources of liability of foreignness in crowdsourcing creative
           work

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Is there a liability of foreignness in online crowdsourcing contests for creative work' Digitalization mitigates physical orthodox transaction-based frictions and is therefore expected to reduce the liability of foreignness. However, for creative work sourced digitally across borders, due to the decoupling of the locus of creation from the locus of selection and due to the cognitive nature of creative tasks, we suggest that frictions continue to arise from foreign solvers’ cognitive home biases in creative task generation and from solution-seeker firm managers’ cognitive home biases in creative task selection. These biases manifest as LOF, reducing the likelihood of foreign solvers’ work being selected as winners in online crowdsourcing contests. Furthermore, we argue that as foreign solvers gain both breadth and depth of international experience in prior online contests, and observe host peers in a live contest, the effect of the liability of foreignness is reduced due to the conceptual expansion of solvers’ creative consideration sets. Similarly, the seeker firm’s cognitive openness in selection arising from its being in a technology industry or being a physically international firm reduces the liability’s negative effect on solvers’ success. Our conditional logit estimation with multiway fixed-effects using 558,504 contest-solver observations from 13,993 solution-seeker firms in 102 countries and 11,497 solvers in 124 countries on an online platform broadly supports our hypotheses, suggesting that there are both demand-side and supply-side cognitive sources of LOF even in unblind online crowdsourcing contests.

  • Political corporate social responsibility: The role of deliberative
           capacity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract With an emphasis on deliberative processes that occur between managers and stakeholders, the political corporate social responsibility (PCSR) literature has made important advances to our understanding of CSR activities. However, these contributions have tended to focus exclusively on organizational settings. We contend that an understanding of firm-level CSR is incomplete without considering the interrelations between organizations and the wider socio-political environment. Building on work in comparative politics about formal and informal institutions, we posit that firm-level CSR will rise as the deliberative capacity of political institutions increases. The term deliberative capacity refers to the capacity of political institutions to enable diverse stakeholders to collectively assemble and voice their opinions. Findings from our analysis of 21,941 firm-year observations, comprising 3563 unique firms from 34 countries over the 2005–2017 period, suggest that the deliberative capacity of formal and informal institutions not only enhances firm-level CSR activities independently but also complements the deliberative processes at an organizational level in promoting CSR.

  • Income inequality, social cohesion, and crime against businesses: Evidence
           from a global sample of firms

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Rising inequality is one of the grand societal challenges of our time. Yet, its effects on firms – including multinational enterprises (MNEs) – and their operations have not been widely examined by IB scholars. In this study, we posit that income inequality within a country is positively associated with the incidence and severity of crime experienced by businesses. Further, we propose that this relationship will be negatively moderated by social cohesion (in the form of greater societal trust and lower ethno-linguistic fractionalization) in these countries, such that social cohesion helps to offset the negative impacts of inequality on crime against businesses. We test these hypotheses using a comprehensive data set of 114,000 firms from 122 countries and find consistent support for our theses. Our findings, which are robust to different alternative variables, model specifications, instrumentation, and estimation techniques, unpack the intricate ways through which inequality affects businesses worldwide and the associated challenges to MNEs. They also offer important managerial and policy insights regarding the consequences of inequality and potential mitigation mechanisms.

The stakeholder value and product differentiation theories hold that intensifying competition spurs firms to increase corporate social responsibility (CSR) to strengthen relationships with non-shareholder stakeholders (e.g., workers, suppliers, customers, and local communities) and differentiate their products to gain pricing power. However, textbook theories of the firm imply that competition spurs firms to focus on short-term survival and forgo investments that pay off in the long run, such as CSR. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate these competing hypotheses. Methodologically, we use a large sample of firm-level data on CSR and panel data on competition laws across 47 countries from 2002 to 2015 and employ multivariate regressions. We find evidence consistent with the stakeholder value and product differentiation theories: intensifying competition laws leads firms to increase their CSR activities, and the CSR-enhancing effects of competition vary across (a) firms with different institutional owners, controlling owners, industry structures, and financing constraints, and (b) countries with different social attitudes toward CSR in ways consistent with the stakeholder value and product differentiation theories. The results imply that firms use CSR, at least partially, as a profit-maximizing strategy.

  • Scaling digital solutions for wicked problems: Ecosystem versatility

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Digital solutions are increasingly used to address “wicked problems” that are locally embedded but require global approaches. Scaling these solutions internationally is imperative for their success, but to date we know little about this process. Using a qualitative case study methodology, our paper analyzes how four digital solutions driven by the United Nations are built and how they scale internationally. These solutions address wicked problems through artificial intelligence, blockchain, and geospatial mapping, and are embedded in networks of partners which evolve during scaling to create unique ecosystem roles and configurations. We identify different ecosystem roles and find that the specific properties of digital solutions – modularity, generativity and affordances – enable either adaptation or replication during scaling. Building on these insights, we derive a typology of four different types of international scaling, which vary in their ecosystem versatility (how the ecosystem changes across locations) and the local adaptation of the application (the problems the solution addresses). This study presents a new way to examine the replication and adaptation dilemma for ecosystems and extends internationalization theory to the digital world.

  • Digital platform attention and international sales: An attention-based
           view

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Digital platforms, which play increasingly important roles in today’s digitally connected world, are technologically complex and financially costly undertakings. Multinational enterprises (MNEs) devote substantial efforts to deploying and maintaining digital platforms. In this study, we examine the overall time and effort spent by MNEs to develop and operate digital platforms, which we call digital platform attention (DPA). Building on the attention-based view, this study explores the impacts of three distinct dimensions of DPA: intensity, persistence, and scope. Our results suggest that MNEs with more intensive and persistent DPA are more effective in reaching global customers and achieving better international sales, whereas MNEs with a more diversified (i.e., scattered) DPA scope suffer from constrained international sales. The positive impact of DPA intensity and the negative effect of DPA scope on international sales are both weakened when MNEs have geographically remote subsidiaries. Through this research, we enrich the attention-based view literature by not only examining different dimensions of attention but also investigating the interactions between different attention allocation directions. Our research adds novel insights and findings on the role of digital platforms in international business.

  • When does multicollinearity bias coefficients and cause type 1 errors'
           

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Lindner et al. (J Int Bus Stud 51:283–298, 2020; hereafter “LPV”) and Kalnins (Strateg Manag J 39(8):2362–2385, 2018) have published recent original analyses on multicollinearity, but the conclusions appear contradictory. LPV argue that multicollinearity does not affect the validity of regression coefficients, but only their reliability. In other words, multicollinearity does not bias coefficients, but only inflates standard errors. In Kalnins (2018), I conclude that multicollinearity may bias coefficients and cause type 1 errors (false positives). My goal here is to reconcile these two perspectives. I consider two data generating processes (DGPs) that create dependent variables (DVs) and apply them to specifications simulated by LPV. If the DV is generated by the Canonical DGP, that is, one which fully satisfies the Gauss–Markov assumptions, I show that previously derived econometric results generalize the conclusions of LPV. But if there are deviations from these conditions, such as in the case of a Common Factor DGP, multicollinearity acts as an amplifier of bias. I extend Kalnins’ (2018) conclusions by analyzing LPV’s specifications within the common factor context: in this case, incorporating all seemingly relevant, observable variables into a regression does not yield unbiased estimates. Coefficient estimates for variables of theoretical interest may be more accurate when correlated variables are omitted. While researchers may prefer estimates with or without a correlated variable included in a regression, both specifications should always be presented.

  • Global connectedness and dynamic green capabilities in MNEs

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We study how global connectedness can help MNEs become more environmentally sustainable. Based on the idea that environmental sustainability requires dynamic capabilities, we define dynamic green capability as the ability to build complementary green competences and reconfigure organizationally embedded resources to pursue competitive advantage in a rapidly changing stakeholder environment. We argue that MNEs with greater global connectedness in terms of international diversification or international environmental certification possess knowledge advantages in cultivating dynamic green capabilities. We extend the sensing–seizing–reconfiguring framework and propose that global connectedness substitutes for sensing as a driver of seizing by providing direct access to relevant green knowledge pools around the world, and that it complements seizing as a driver of reconfiguring by strengthening the knowledge routines needed to integrate green competences.
