This edition examines the reality of these theories and how multinational corporations (MNCs) must prepare to handle these discrepancies.
  • NEW DISCUSSION DEMONSTRATES HOW TO ACCOUNT FOR UNCERTAINTY WHEN APPLYING MULTINATIONAL CAPITAL BUDGETING. Students examine the challenges and complexities of capital budgeting for a multinational corporation (MNC).

  • NEW DISCUSSION REVIEWS HOW TO MOST EFFECTIVELY MANAGE EXCHANGE RATE RISK.

This edition provides a seamless flow from measurement to management of exchange rate risk.
  • NEW COVERAGE EXAMINES IMPLICIT BARRIERS TO ENTRY IN SOME INTERNATIONAL MARKETS. Students explore how many multinational corporations (MNCs) that wish to expand internationally are prevented from penetrating foreign markets because of implicit barriers to entry. Students also learn how these MNCs can adapt in order to circumvent implicit barriers.
  • NEW DISCUSSION EXPLORES TRADEOFFS IN ANY INTERNATIONAL TRADE POLICY. Most students have an opinion about the ideal trade policy that their home countries should implement.
