Most MNCs, corning from industrialized nations, tend to focus on economic growth, efficiency, specialization, free trade, and competitive advantage. LDCs concentrate more on equitable distribution of income and wealth, increased economic self-reliance. Because of these differences in philosophies, many MNCs are viewed as exploiters of the LDCs, their citizens, and their natural resources. This is the view espoused by Immanuel Wallerstein and David Korten in their works on the world economic system. Because we (Earth's inhabitants) consume more resources than is sustainable, the MNCs' emphasis on continued growth and competitive advantage is outmoded and ultimately detrimental to all of us. Thus, I would adhere more closely to the LDCs' philosophy.
