Transnational Corporations in Electrical

Transnational Corporations in Electrical Industry TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS (TNCs) are producing an ever greater share of the world's output of electrical goods. They also account for a very large share of the international trade in such goods, much of which is on an inter-firm basis. A study prepared at the request of the UNCTAD Secretariat by Richard S Newfarmer examines how the behaviour of TNCs in the electrical industry affects the development and trade of developing countries. ("The International Market Power of Transnational Corporations: A Case Study of the Electrical Industry" to Richard S Newfarmer; UNCTAD/ /MD/13.) Excerpts from the summary and conclusions of the study are reproduced below.
