This book is written to assist you in identifying the topics that pertain to you and in developing a realistic plan to get your arms around what you've already saved for retirement and start planning seriously for the future. If you're like a lot of people, you have probably changed jobs - or even careers - many times over the years. You probably weren't thinking too much about retirement, even if you did participate in one or more employer-sponsored retirement plans and opened a few registered individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Having reached your midlife years, there's a good chance you have a collection of plans and accounts scattered around, although off the top of your head, you may not know exactly where they all are and what each is invested in. Now it's time to get organized. This may seem like a daunting task. For starters, if record-keeping is not your forte, you may be unsure of where to start your search. Feeling unsure that you'll like what you find, you may have procrastinated. That is why I wrote this book - because we know that having some guidance can help you take the steps you need to in order to help secure your future.
Direct foreign investment and the activities of multinational corporations are new dynamic elements in the international economy. This book identifies, theoretically and practically, a Japanese model of multinational business operations which has characteristics differing from the American or "anti-trade oriented" type, and casts light on important policy implications concerning direct foreign investment and multinational corporations. By developing a macroeconomic approach to direct foreign investment, instead of the prevalent explanation from the viewpoint of business administration and industrial organisation, this study adds to current knowledge of the multinational corporation. It endeavours to bridge the gap of separated treatments between international trade and foreign investment, and presents an integrated theory from the viewpoint of a dynamic reorganisation in the international division of labour. The book also includes two introductory surveys on the survey of international division of labour and foreign investment.
