ABSTRACT
The article presents a comparative analysis of international corporate restructuring and global competitiveness. Patterns of corporate restructuring display considerable variation by nation. The variation appears to result from the domestic focus of restructuring strategies and their sensitivity to domestic, particularly labor market, characteristics. Restructuring strategies pursued by Japan, multinational firms appear to offer the most significant and enduring competitive benefits. This is because the most widely adopted strategies have their principal impact on proprietary and internalization factors. U.S. corporate emphasis has been on overcoming locational disadvantages and restoring conditions for competitive operation in the home market.
