    Brief History of TNCs From the Origins to the Second World War The earliest historical origins of transnational corporations can be traced to the major colonising and imperialist ventures from Western Europe, notably England and Holland, which began in the 16th century and proceeded for the next several hundred years. Back 6. But then this also implies that at some point a TNC or two will become a member of the Economic and Social Councils, and then, perhaps, the General Assembly.

    These treaties serve as the frameworks within which globalization is evolving -- allowing international corporate investment and trade to flourish across the Earth. More recent legal publications have differentiated the role of the corporation in more detail. Benefits of Transnational Corporations Size of Corporations The scale and size of transnational corporations are what give them the chance of benefiting economically. They have monopoly power which further enables them to make excess profit.

    Some critics argue that transnational corporations exhibit no loyalty to the countries in which they are incorporated but act solely in their own best interests. Two other motives are more controversial. Alan Rugman, author of the seminal book, Inside the Multinationals: The Economics of Internal Markets, notes that since its publication in the book has been cited times in academic scholarship—but only three times in legal contributions. The five leading oil majors account for over 40 per cent of that industry's global market share.

The merits of specific legal discourses, like the CSR debate, could be expounded if legal scholars were better able to understand the corporation itself as the starting point of concerns about its responsibility.

Back 3. Tax breaks and subsidies governments use as incentives are no guarantee that the TNCs will not move on after the benefits have expired, and as cost advantages now found in Singapore appear in, say, Bangladesh, the countries currently experiencing an influx of investment may eventually find themselves in the same position as that of the US and other industrialised nations today.

Whereas numerous economic contributions treat the inner structure of transnational corporations,12 law scholars largely focus on the external relationships of the corporation and regulatory issues like supervision, taxation, or liability.

More formal, centralised control has typically been a hallmark of US, and to a lesser extent European, corporations than of Japanese TNCs.
