INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS POLICY DESIGN FIRMS’ ENDOWMENT AND INCENTIVES’ EFFECTIVENESS

We investigate the appraisal of the value of pro-internationalization policy incentives. Using data for a small and open economy we find, contrary to prevailing belief, that better endowed firms place greater importance on incentives, with no evidence for the presumption that, by design, incentives appeal more to export-only firms. Rather, policy appeals almost exclusively to outward investors although, in line with theory, financial incentives appeal to more indebted investors. Our findings suggest an overspill in policy attraction from exporters to foreign investors, and the need for improved policy design.

EIBA 2018 POZNAŃ CONFERENCE. International Business Policy: Main Streams of Literature and Emerging Agendas

The better understanding of the interconnections between MNE activities and the objectives of policy makers is under the radar of scholars at least since the 1960s. In this paper we review the extent and emmerging prespectives on, and approach to, international business policy and particularly, we explore the importance of policy on outward internationalization based on three theoretical branches of economic literature - rational, behavioural and institutional economics. From this literature emerges the rationale for government policy to promote the internationalization of domestic firms is to secure returns to the domestic economy that firms alone are unable to appropriate. In fact, this idea lies on the argument that without public intervention, the level and speed of internationalization would fall below what would is thought best for domestic society.

AIB 2018 Annual Meeting Minneapolis, USA. "DO BETTER ENDOWED FIRMS PLACE LOWER IMPORTANCE ON INTERNATIONALIZATION INCENTIVES?"

We investigate theory and conventional wisdom in policy circles that pro-internationalization policy incentives are valued more when firms are deficient in attributes essential for tackling internationalization. Using data for a small and open economy we find, contrary to prevailing belief, that better endowed firms place greater importance on incentives, with no evidence for the presumption that, by design, incentives appeal more to export-only firms. Rather, policy appeals almost exclusively to outward investors although, in line with theory, financial incentives appeal to more indebted investors. Our findings suggest an overspill in policy attraction from exporters to foreign investors, and the need for improved policy design.
