Cost-Benefit of TNCs

JOHN MARTINUSSEN or the Koskilde University Centre, Denmark, made four trips to India between 1977 and 1988 for studying the effect of the regulatory policies of the government of India on the activities of transnational corporations. He prepared a report for restricted circulation in 1986 and the present book is a revised version of that report, The in formation in the text and the tables relate mainly to the severities, but, in some cases, the data have been brought up to 1983-84 and even up to 1986. Practically all the major problems have been examined, the only major exception being that of the transfer prices'. Two of the seven chapters are mainly descriptive. There are an Introduction and a chapter on 'The Host Coun- try's Dilemma' at the beginning. There are then three analytical chapters on the balance of payments aspects, on transfer of resources and on the allocation of resources. A con- eluding chapter summarises the analysis and brings together the findings. There are three factual appendices and also three useful tables (which are additional to some thirty detailed tables in the text).
