Globalization is dramatically reshaping coverage landscapes, thereby growing new possibilities and threats for governments and companies. the consequent restructuring of coverage areas calls for an emphasis at the have to take care of globalization, because the distribution of its expenditures and merits is asymmetrical throughout international locations, sectors, companies and elements. in contrast to prior books, dealing with Globalization concentrates firmly on conceptual matters, which will contemplate intimately the coping ideas of either companies and governments.

We hypothesize that four variables raise the incentives for races to occur. While all four capture different elements of the interaction between firms and states in a global economy, we believe that races are most likely when multiple combinations of these variables are present. The first is what we label as homogeneity of products. In some industries, firms compete across a wide range of dimensions. They may have sharply different products, different marketing operations or research focus. For these firms, marginal cost differentials are unlikely to be all that important to their competitive performance.

Yet does the mere existence of these conditions ensure that such races will occur? Empirically, it seems not. Indeed, as mentioned above, numerous studies (Knogden, 1979; Leonard, 1988; Friedman, Gerlowski and Silberman, 1992) have demonstrated that even when the conditions for racing are ripe, races do not necessarily occur. Less formally, we can observe that races simply do not happen everywhere and in every industry. In today’s global economy, most firms are able to move across international borders with relative ease and governments employ heterogeneous policies across a wide spectrum of issues.
