Much of this research-paper will discuss the implications of wealth, or its lack, on management in developing countries; however, throughout, readers should keep in mind the changing world in which we live because this changing world will determine what effective management is.
At the beginning of the 21st century, there is much discussion of the global nature of business and the need for management to be aware of the impact of globalization on business.
Despite a large body of research, country-of-origin effects are still poorly understood.
Combining the strengths of a narrative review with those of a quantitative meta-analysis, our study seeks to establish a firm grounding for country-of-origin research.

18067 Issued in May 2012 NBER Program(s): Economics of Education, Labor Studies, Productivity, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship We report results from the first systematic study of the mobility of scientists engaged in research in a large number of countries.There is also some indication that distortions of investment-goods prices are adverse for growth.Finally, the analysis leaves unexplained a good deal of the relatively weak growth performances of countries in sub- Saharan Africa and Latin America.Regardless of country, the most likely reason respondents report for returning to one's home country is family or personal.Acknowledgments Machine-readable bibliographic record - MARC, RIS, Bib Te X Document Object Identifier (DOI): 10.3386/w18067 Published: FRANZONI, C., SCELLATO, G., STEPHAN, P.Countries with higher human capital also have lower fertility rates and higher ratios of physical investment to GDP.These results on growth, fertility, and investment are consistent with some recent theories of endogenous economic growth.Efficient fossil fuel pricing in 2015 would have lowered global carbon emissions by 28 percent and fossil fuel air pollution deaths by 46 percent, and increased government revenue by 3.8 percent of GDP. This convergence hypothesis seems to be inconsistent with the cross-country evidence, which indicates that per capita growth rates for about 100 countries in the post-World War II period are uncorrelated with the starting level of per capita product. r1596) Issued in September 1989 NBER Program(s): Economic Fluctuations and Growth In neoclassical growth models with diminishing returns to capital, a country's per capita growth rate tends to be inversely related to its initial level of income per person.However, if one holds constant measures of initial human capital-measured by primary and secondary school-enrollment rates - there is evidence that countries with lower per capita product tend to grow faster.
