9780072356762: International Business: The Challenge of Global Competition

Political, technological, market, cost and competitive changes have driven many businesses to expand operations globally - creating an explosion in the growth rate of international business. Firms operating across borders must also deal with the following forces in the international, foreign and domestic environments:

- competitive
- distributive
- economic
- socioeconomic
- financial
- legal
- physical
- political
- sociocultural

The relationship of the forces in the international, foreign and domestic environments form the basis of Ball & McCulloch's International Business model.
