This important book addresses the intricate relationship between the public and private sector: why and how government intervenes in the economy and how business can respond. It provides analysis from both perspectives, presenting the ways that government policy affects the activities of the modern corporation and the key responses on the part of business. Providing a strong overview of the global marketplace in which government interacts with business, the book presents up-to-date analysis of recent changes in government’s regulation of business. It features a realistic presentation of the manner in which businesses deal with government, including the basic geometry of governmental intervention in key business areas. Some of the areas covered include the tools that government uses to influence business decision-making; government regulation in the social and economic arenas; business and government in the international economy; government as a market; the key responses of business to government influence; and the future of the corporation. The sixth edition of Business and Government in the Global Marketplace has been revised to include the most up-to-date information and a new chapter on government as a market that covers an important area neglected by other books in this field. An essential reference on government regulation for every business professional.
