I am pleased to share the recording of the distinguished lecture with Peter Buckley, Professor of International Business at Leeds University Business School, who talked on The Structural Reshaping of Globalization. Alain Verbeke, Professor of International Business Strategy at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary served as a discussant. The lecture took place November 20, 2020; you can find the recording here: https://dan.uwo.ca/news/2020/dl_buckley_verbeke.html
This talk examines the role of theory, specifically internalization theory, in examining the structural reshaping of globalization. Four empirical changes in the global economy are identified.
- The fracture in the global economy between the USA and China, including “the splinternet”.
- “Systemic Competition” and its consequences.
- Rising VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) and corporate responses.
- Innovation. The theoretical response is presented by nested theories of internalization, relying on common principles and concepts.
