  • Medard Gabel & Henry Bruner
    New York: The New Press, 2003

    One of the major agents of globalization - the multinational corporation - has been alternately portrayed as global villain and global economic booster. In “Global Inc.”, a new “atlas of the multinational corporation” by Medard Gabel and Henry Bruner, companies with an extensive global reach are subjected to a more objective critical eye. In this review article, Nayan Chanda highlights the authors’ somewhat surprising data and assesses the book’s significance for globalization studies.
