Hence, multinational companies stimulate labour movement because they carefully choose the specialists for managerial positions The economist Starting with the positive role, MNCs act as modernizers of the world economy.

    Many of these companies have about ninety per cent of their assets in foreign countries The economist Globalisation is an effect of capitalism — huge companies want to expand into the whole world for more profit — and become multinational corporations. Hence the OECD proposals first to avoid low-tax competition by countries and second to tax revenue rather than profits which is something many countries do with the Value Added Tax or Sales Taxes. Although initially most of those laws were framed to control the entry and regulate the activities of TNCs, legislative changes increasingly have become more favorable to foreign investment.

The main goal for such corporations is to get as much profit as possible. Moreover, they decide on the quality of technologies and fairness of their business. However, there are no guarantees that every single country benefits from MNCs and that technologies reach every single undeveloped country UN
