Sammanfattning

Purpose - The chapter provides an economic explanation and perspectivation of strategic asset seeking of multinational enterprises from emerging economies (EMNEs) as a prominent feature of today's global economy. Approach - The authors apply and extend the "springboard perspective." This perspective submits that EMNEs acquire strategic assets in developed markets primarily for use in their home markets. Findings - The authors succumb that the springboard perspective is alluring theoretically as well as empirically as it suggests that when EMNEs acquire strategic assets, they experience liabilities of foreignness (LOF) that are low relative to those of MNEs from developed markets. The authors concede to this LOF asymmetry but also point out that liabilities of outsidership (LOO) can offset or weaken the homemarket advantage of some EMNEs when competing with MNEs. Research implications - LOO appears as the more relevant concept to use when explaining strategic asset seeking of EMNEs. A set of propositions are formulated to guide empirical testing. Originality/value - The insights gained from using the springboard perspective and the LOO concept are non-trivial: They basically predict future dominance of 'insider' EMNEs at the expense of MNEs from developed markets.
