In this series of essays that span over 20 years of research, Benjamin Bobo builds the case for multinational corporations to take an active role in combating poverty around the world. Citing sobering statistics (for example, three-fourths of the world's nations are classified as "Third World" and four-fifths of the world's people live in these nations), Bobo argues that huge corporate entities not only have the wherewithal but an obligation to alleviate the suffering that results from a lack of economic resources and opportunity. Through these provocative and forward-looking essays, he presents a theoretical and practical framework for multinationals to stimulate economic development in the Third World--providing access to capital, entrepreneurial expertise, and emerging technologies.

Editorial Reviews

"Bobo (finance, Loyola Marymount U.) feels strongly that income inequality between rich and poor nations and the deep poverty of the Third World can be effectively addressed by the multinational corporation. He presents 14 previously published essays that address the matter from a variety of angles, discussing such matters as MNC-host country relationships in Africa, the possibilities of MNCS putting aside exploitative practices in recognition that poor countries may otherwise unite against them, the attitudes of policymakers in poor countries and in MNCs, the lessons from conflict and conflict resolution models, expanding the corporate model of wealth maximization to include Third World stakeholders, and the issue of a new pedagogy in support of such a model."-Reference & Research Book News
