Adams, John Russell.
Thesis (M.A.L.S.)--Georgetown University, 2008.; Includes bibliographical references. The role of multinational corporations in international affairs and Sino-U.S. policy is a role of critical concern. Further, the influence of multinational corporations (MNCs) on host nation-states is growing, and the nation-state is no longer the only actor in international affairs. The issue of concern is the growing influence of multinational corporations in international affairs and in state relations, especially Sino-U.S. relations. This study begins with the origins of commercial influence in Sino-U.S. foreign policy and how multinational corporations have increased their influence in China's market economy. Second, this study explores the history of MNCs and the mechanisms that MNCs utilize to influence host states, and the rising Chinese multinational corporation. Third, this study provides two cases, the marketing frenzy of the 2008 Olympics and the 2007 Chinese Export Confidence Crisis which displays the increasing role of MNCs in Sino-U.S. relations and international affairs. Finally, this study defines the ethical dilemma of the role of MNCs in Sino-U.S. relations and international affairs and reaches conclusion over this role and provides suggestions in regards to the future of the international environment.
