The Structural Reshaping of Globalization 


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.  (1) The fracture in the global economy between the USA and China, including “the splinternet”. (2) “Systemic Competition” and its consequences. (3) Rising VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity) and corporate responses. (4) Innovation. The theoretical response is presented by  nested theories of internalisation, relying on common principles and concepts.
