SIDELIGHTS: Alan M. Rugman told CA: "I write about globalization and the strategies of multinational enterprises as this is the key issue of our times. I continue to search for empirical information about the nature of the activities of multinational enterprises and how they interact with governments and international institutions like the World Trade Organization. I am also interested in broader social issues and the freedom from poverty brought about by multinational enterprises."
