ABSTRACT
The article discusses international business enterprises. The question of how dual corporate governance can affect such firms' choices about their modes of entry into foreign markets is addressed, in the context of competitive advantage. Management of investment risks is said to be a dominant factor in such decisions. The transaction cost model is contrasted with capability-based analysis, in terms of corporate know-how and entry mode choices, and the importance of distinguishing between information flow and knowledge flow is stressed.
