To continue to work with multinational corporations without being exploited by them, developing countries need an international regulatory organization of their own, according to this book by a Ghanaian lawyer who once worked at the U.N. Center on Transnational Corporations. He has concluded that the search for a global regulatory arrangement is hopeless because of the attitude of the governments of industrialized countries. Without spending much time on the evidence, he rejects the view that individual governments can do quite well by themselves in dealing with large private corporations.
