A key What's more sensible Multi-Criteria decision settling on structure on Erp determination In Oem.

Abstract


The new international economic order, promoted by the Bretton Woods institutions, has led to MNCs accumulating so many resources that they have become mega-actors on the international economic, social and political scene. In more than a few cases, the presence of MNCs ‘has often removed decision making from the national sphere and state control’.59

The immense influence of MNCs, Bengoa declares, has resulted in ‘a clear loss of sovereignty on the part of the state and a greater globalisation of the decisions affecting the world’s population’.60 General Motors, a MNC, has ‘a larger economy than all but seven nations’. Bengoa’s view, considered in relation to developing countries, is that MNCs, particularly in the extractive industry, wield immense power in many developing countries, including Nigeria. The privileged position of MNCs as key players on the national and international scene ought to go with some responsibility.
