Example text

The strategies and structures of corporations can and do change as they operate internationally, but only to the extent that those underlying institutions and ideologies permit such change. (Doremus et al. 1998) 28 Shaping the regional project At the scale of the nation-state, firms learn, adapt, and strategize in interaction with rules governing property rights, risk allocation, and, in general, capacity for action. In describing the process through which corporations govern, Danielson (2005) echoes Dicken (2003) describing how: Actions, reactions and inactions by all players in the system must be taken into account to get an accurate picture of the regime itself .

Thus, strategic actions by firms are shaped by territorially bounded market governance regimes and also create new territories. Today, this is most evident at the global scale as firms lobby for frameworks governing trade, intellectual property, and the use of the oceans. It is, however, also evident at the regional scale where firms lobby for and create “zones” within which market rules differ from those of surrounding areas. Firm strategies as emerging from market governance regimes As trade liberalization and privatization of formerly state regulated industries has proceeded across advanced economies, the different approaches to and outcomes of market integration led to a reconsideration of the thesis that 22 Shaping the regional project globalization naturally entailed convergence around a common set of rules governing factor, distribution, and labor markets.

Firm strategies are, however, almost universally conceived of as firm specific. Even if strategy patterns, such as cost competition, are recognized across firms, they are represented as an aggregate of the decisions of individual firms rather than explicable in terms of a set of incentives creating a decision-making environment. The firm-strategies literature treats the firm as autonomous from the market governance arrangements which constructs the incentives within Firm strategies 21 which it operates.
