A History of Foreign Multinational Enterprises in Australia from Federation

  • van der Eng, Pierre (PI)

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    We aim to deliver the first history of foreign multinational firms in twentieth-century Australia, connecting to, and enhancing, a rich overseas literature on global business. Foreign corporations have played a critical but poorly understood role here with public and policy opinions polarised between approval for new investment, job creation and innovation against concern for their impact on tax revenue, competition, and economic policy. Through a closer, long term understanding of multinationals - their magnitude, motives to settle here, corporate structures, and adaptation to local conditions - our findings will facilitate better informed public discourses of their economic and business impact, which will assist future policy decisions.
