Regulation of Transnational Corporation-National and Global Interventions

National and Global Interventions Samuel Paul This paper examines recent trends in the policies of less developed countries (LDCs) towards transnational corporations (TNCs) and the international concerns in regard to the operation of TNCs round the world. Among the major issues analysed by the author are recent developments in foreign private investment, major international interventions to influence the behaviour of NTCs and the new responses of TNCs to the changing policies and controls of host governments. These issues should be of interest to policy-makers and entrepreneurs in India which is no longer just a host country to TNCs but is emerging us a home country for a growing number of TNCs of Indian origin. Towards the end of the paper, likely trends in the policies of LDC governments towards TNCs and their implications are highlighted.

Changes in Organisational Climate and Management Education, 1968 to 1981-Some Warning Signals

Management Education, 1968 to 1981 Some Warning Signals Howard J Baumgartel Rukhsana Pathan Badal Roy with assistance of Gopal Khandelwal and Anisur Rahman The diffusion and adoption of advanced technologies in business and industry arc critical to development. The rapid growth of the number of instutions offering both degree and non-degree programmes in management has been one response to this critical need. Research on the role of these programmes in the diffusion of innovative technologies has revealed that (i) the climate of employing organisations and (ii) specific characteristics of such training programmes affect greatly the rate or extent to which trained managers introduce improved methods in their job settings.

Corporate Propensity to Save

savings have been an important source of internal finance for the private corporate sector in India, as a field of study, it has by and large remained neglected. Except for the now considerably dated study by Mazumdar (1959) and a few attempts to infer indirectly the saving propensity of the corporate sector from dividend payout ratios, very few attempts have been made to examine the corporate saving behaviour. The present study is an attempt in that direction. Corporate savings being residually determined as the algebraic difference between profits and dividends an analysis of corporate savings demands that one should examine major influences on corporate profits and dividends separately. This is what we do in the present study. Demand constraint, price situation and wage-costs are taken as major influences on corporate profits while level of profits, dividend policy of firms and availability of external finance are those considered for corporate dividends. Corporate savings are determined residually alter specifying independent functions for corporate profits and dividends. Time series evidence on medium and large public companies is deployed in the regression analysis.

Financing Decisions-A Survey of Management Understanding

A Survey of Management Understanding A FIRM after having determined its investment policy, should plan the sources of finance and their mix.

The improper mix of capital can also render operations of firms inflexible.

Planning and Monitoring Fertiliser Marketing Strategies-Designing and Developing an Efficient Information System

during the 60s and early 70s showed a consistently rising trend only to be followed by a more or less fluctuating pattern in recent years. Annual per- centage increase in consumption till 1968 69 was much in excess of 20 per cent barring the year of 1965-66 when the growth rate was unusually low at 1.4 per cent. During the period 1968-69 to 1971-72 the growth rate stablished at a somewhat lower level of 14.6 per cent. Thereafter, the fertiliser consumption scenario has traced a somewhat cyclical trajectory with fluctuations becoming more pronounced in recent years. In contrast to the consumption pattern, fertiliser production in India has recorded a consistently rising trend barring a few years when the growth rate in production went down substantially because of some compelling circumstances. Viewing the performance in a totality the growth rate has been on an average far in excess of 10 per cent.
