Abstract

This article summarizes the author's extensive investigation of the research and development investments made abroad by seven U.S.-based multinational organizations. The article describes the factors that affected the initial investment in 55 R&D units established abroad by the Exxon Corporation (Its energy businesses); the Exxon Chemical Company; International Business Machines (IBM); the Chemicals and Plastics Group of Union Carbide Corporation; CPC International; Otis Elevator Company; and the Corning Glass Works. The article also discusses the evolution of the same 55 R&D units established abroad by these seven multinationals.
