About this product
- DescriptionThere are substantial opportunities and risks in establishing a successful business in developing countries. Financial and ecomic risks of doing business with developing countries, manifested in World Debt Crisis, require careful examination before a business venture is attempted. The book provides thorough historical information about LDCs' ecomies and causes of their indebtedness. The most recent data regarding ecomic performance, indebtedness, and infrastructure, of LDCs are presented as well. The book should prove useful to those considering business in developing countries and to scholars studying ecomic development and international business and finance. Written without an extensive use of sophisticated models and jargon, the book is accessible to both academic and nacademic readers. The book consists of four parts. The first part focuses on defining LDCs and analyzing their stages of ecomic development. The second part presents two background chapters to aid the reader to put LDCs into an ecomic and historical context. Part III examines the World Debt Crisis and its effects on developing countries and implications for business in these countries. The final part of the book develops a strategic planning model to assist businesses in deciding whether to do business in indebted LDCs and once the decision is made to guide implementation of business plans. Infrastructure is critical to the success of prospective business enterprise. An appendix presents the most recent and detailed information about infrastructure in LDCs along with an index developed to serve as a quantitative guide to the availability of infrastructure. The book also contains appendices that present detailed data on relevant financial and ecomic variables in developing countries and an antated bibliography.
