US multinational corporations, which account for well over one-half of the total foreign investment in countries with market economies, truly dominate the economy of the non-communist world. Apart from their size and the financial power that accompanies it, links between the large corporations and the political power structure are much closer in the US than in most other countries, with the possible exception of Japan. A study of the behavioural patterns of US multinational corporations is, therefore, important. This article relies largely on a report of the US Tariff Commission. Use has also been made of material made available by multinational corporations to the Sub-Committee on Foreign Relations of the US Senate and the Securities and Exchange Commission of the US.
