Enron in India Developing Political Capability-An Imperative for Multinational Enterprise in an Era of Globalisation

An Imperative for Multinational Enterprise in an Era of Globalisation This paper examines the consequences for political economy and multinational enterprise in the aftermath of the resolution of the Uruguay Round for economies such as India.
