Multinational Excursions
Multinational Excursions
By C. P. Kindleberger
MIT Press, 1984, 269 pp

So long as publishers are willing, readers can benefit from what the prolific author calls his "inability to resist the temptation to gather papers emitted . . . over the years. . . ." The twenty gathered here deal mostly with international investment and the multinational corporation, about which the none-too-retired and highly emeritorious professor has had many clarifying, acerbic and often original things to say over the years. A few of the papers have not been previously published and a number have appeared only in out-of-the-way places. They include the famous "GATT For Investment" and the less-well-known "Further Reflections" on the same subject.
