The social and economic impacts of TNCs on their host countries and their countries of origin.

 

Identify named groups affected e.g. workers, government, women, rural dwellers. Look at data for social/economic improvement or deterioration. Link to the impact of the TNCs. Discuss attitudes to the changes. Use a case study of one host country and one country of origin as far as possible. Case Study 1 - Malaya.
Case Study 2 - Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle.

Newly industrialising countries (NICs) as host countries and countries of origin, and NICs importance in the changing world economy.

Different attitudes in both the host and countries of origin to transnational corporations.

Definition of an NIC. Identify NICs. Look at spatial pattern. Basing the work on a case study (as far as possible), explain why NICs became host countries, (e.g., cheaper labour costs, expanding market, government, and weaker environmental laws, geographical location). Develop why they become countries of origin (stronger domestic industries but rising costs, therefore, move outwards). Look at changing importance in world economy.
