Example text

Intel, for example, does not compete with other semiconductor manufacturers by shaving a few pennies off the price of its Pentium chip. Merck does not undercut its rivals through cut-throat pricing on cancer drugs. These firms still compete, and they still worry about relative cost structures, but they are probably not predisposed to racing across the world in order to seize either a labor cost or a regulatory advantage. YOFFIE location-hopping might bring. If firms produce essentially the same product, and if their internal cost structures are similar, they will feel obligated to compete more at the margin, seizing whatever relative advantage they can find.

Two crucial issues, therefore, are: (1) Can governments meaningfully intervene to support their home-based MNEs’ global strategies? And (2) if they can, should they? In Chapter 5, Hart, Lenway and Murtha examine the business and policy dimensions of a crucial high-technology industry—Flat-Panel Display (FPD)— specifically, whether “technonationalism” is a viable government strategy to support domestic firms. Technonationalism implies a desire to replicate key parts of the technology commercialization processes using “domestic” capabilities.

Or as some of the economic literature suggests (Wilson, 1996) races cannot occur if the economy is perfectly competitive and free of market imperfections. 9 At a minimum, therefore, racing to the bottom demands that two necessary conditions be met. Firms must be mobile and markets must be heterogeneous: that is, there must either be differential factor costs or regulatory differences which affect product costs. Without these conditions, firms either will not be able to move across international borders or will have no incentive to do so.
