  • Analyzed from an international perspective, the distribution of industrial activities has been greatly affected in the past twenty years by the growth of major corporations, most of them American-based multinationals. These giant firms, often able to impose their will upon newly independent nation states or backward regions of industrialized countries, have transformed the geography of industrial location in their constant search for cheap labor, new markets, and favorable "business climates."
