For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.

Question 2:

Evaluate one of the basic benefits of becoming multinational corporations. Your textbook reading this week sets out the different reasons firms cite when explaining why they cross the borders of their home country and become multinational corporations. Read the three basic benefits highlighted in the text and in Figure 8-1.

Select one of the reasons (or benefits) and defend why it might be emerging as the most important one in firms’ decisions to internationalize in the 21st Century. In answering this question, be sure to consider the international business conditions today and look for the motivations that underlie these current trends. In your answer, be sure to contrast the less important alternatives that you did not select. It will create a more lively discussion if participants don’t all select the same reason to defend as the most important, emergent reason or benefit. This section of your post should be 1 page (500 words) in length.
The final section or paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in your initial response.

Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Complete your participation for this assignment by by the end of the week.
