Abstract

In the emerging global economy, the key actors are multinational corporations and nation-states. As they interact, there are different outcomes in different world regions because they play their games on the differentiating checkerboard of culture. This paper explores the foundations of political-economic differences in culture and the dimensions along which cultures vary. A basis is provided for the context-specific behavioral and location theories needed for the yet-to-be written comparative geography of this global economy.
