Book Review

How Human Psychology Drives the Economy and Why It Matters for Global Capitalism

Transnational Corporations Review (TNCR) since its birth has positioned itself to be a direct bridge between knowledge creators (scholars) and knowledge seekers (practitioners) in the areas of international business and global strategy. It differs from most refereed journals of the kind, which either creating novel knowledge that no practitioners ever read or targeting practitioners by translating existing, old knowledge. In other words, papers that are otherwise qualified for some traditional top journals might not be considered for publication at TNCR. It is one of the very few refereed journals in the world that are actually read by a wide range of highly educated practitioners and real-world decision makers. In particular, it is one of the very few journals in the West that have a deep and broad root in emerging markets like China.


As a young journal, we encourage free thinking and innovative ideas by not imposing a strictly formularized acceptance rule, but we do emphasize our four general rules for rejection:

·         We reject ideas that are not novel (i.e., not conceptually distinguished from the existing literature);

·         We reject ideas that are specific to a particular country (i.e., not transnationally applicable);

·         We reject ideas that are specific to a short time period (i.e., not genetically transferable or not dynamically explaining repeating activities);

·         We reject ideas that are inapplicable into the real world (i.e., implications for practice are very limited).


TNCR is dedicated to providing economic, policy, and business analysis of current issues related to transnational corporations, foreign direct investment, institutional innovation, and international development. It is regularly indexed in ALJC, AMICUS, CrossRef, EBSCO, EconLit, Scopus, and SSCI/SCI (under review). For more details, please visit the journal website at
