The current globalized world economy is interconnected. However, there is a
political trend of Economic Nationalism in U.S.A., Europe, and other
countries leading to import tariffs and protectionism. The goal of the
economic nationalism for a nation is to promote its economic growth and
prosperity of its citizens. It represents a set of country-specific
economic practices to create, strengthen and protect a nation’s economy in
the context of international markets. The recent trend of economic
nationalism or protectionism stems from the rapid globalization, the recent
economic crisis, trade deficits and the nationalist movements.

Globalization is also perceived as a threat to national security by some
countries as they perceive the national greatness in terms of military
power (Ali, 2017; Mason,2017, Iliescu, 2017). Recent examples of economic
nationalism include UK exiting from European Union (BREXIT, 2017), the U.S.
pulling out of the multilateral Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal
involving twelve countries while Japan trying to achieve a deal among the
remaining eleven countries (Nikkei Asian Review, 2017). The opposition to
Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between U.S. and the
European Union signals a new environment with a potential for
nationalistic, protectionist and anti-globalization policies. Economic
nationalism encourages economic policies aimed at promoting domestic
control of consumption, labor and capital formation. It questions the
benefits of unrestricted global free trade. The economic nationalism often
calls for trade protectionism, limiting imports, increasing exports,
currency manipulation and restricting immigration (Pryke, 2012). There is a
relationship between economic nationalism and foreign direct investment
(FDI) in emerging markets. The public opinion and prevailing preferences
regarding FDI affect the location decisions of multinational
companies(Jacobsen and Jacobsen, 2011).

Economic nationalism can be understood in terms of local government
economic policies, attitudes of domestic firms towards foreign domestic
investment, the attitudes of consumers towards foreign goods and firms, and
the interaction of the multi-national firms and domestic firms. The
expectations model of economic nationalism includes the people’s
expectations of their government, domestic firms, and the general public,
in terms of restricting the activities of foreign firms. (Akhter, 2007;
Nakano, 2004). An alternative view of economic nationalism differentiates
it from protectionism and defines as leveraging of national resources to
secure economic benefits from the world economy. This view holds that the
countries are not only active participants in globalization but they
continue to strategically express nationalism in new global settings by
supporting national firms and citizens overseas. Business leaders of the
multinational corporations focus not only on the benefits that they will
derive from entering a country, but also the benefits they will deliver to
their domestic economy by investing capital in a foreign country (D’Costa,

Different countries practice economic nationalism in different ways based
on their emerging priorities in the social, political and economic
contexts. Both the developed economies and developing economies are
exhibiting a recent surge in economic nationalism. The increasing
globalization and the growth of world markets through greater exports has
threatened the economic growth of developed economies that import more than
export like the U.S.A. Many Asian firms have become globally competitive by
using the processes of globalization and economic nationalism. Through
effective firm strategy and economic nationalistic policies of China, the
Chinese multi-national firm Huawei has exceeded Swedish firm Ericsson for
making telecommunication equipment. Other examples include Lenovo and Haier
from China and Infosys from India. Many Western nations including U.S. are
beginning to warm up to the idea of using economic nationalistic policies
to promote their own industries and make them more competitive globally
(D’Costa, 2012). A country’s economic openness affects its economic
nationalism. The economic interests of a country in the domestic market
relative to its interests in the foreign market influence its economic
nationalism sentiment. Increasing the foreign trade reduces the economic
interests in the domestic market and thus weakens its economic nationalism.
Using the Chinese Political Compass data and the World Value Surveys data,
this prediction holds both cross-sectionally and over time. Based on the
cross-country data, this also applies to the analysis of nationalism across
countries. (Lan and Li, 2015).
Economic nationalism can be misinterpreted as anti-globalization and
isolation, which can be self-defeating for a nation in the hyper-connected
world economy. The complexity of the implementation of economic nationalism
lies in preserving self-interest and promoting international economic
partnerships. Economic nationalism can co-exist with globalization.
Economic nationalistic policies can be used to manage the globalization
processes to a country’s own advantage. Globalization can be used as a
means to serve the developmental needs of a country using economic
nationalistic policies to have access to foreign capital, expertise and
markets leading to export-oriented domestic industries. Economic
Nationalism is not just a "protectionist" ideology. Economic Nationalism
demonstrates the economic significance of policies that promote the
industries in a nation to grow and expand beyond its national borders to
become global. It is associated with context-specific economic policies
including support for economic liberalization and globalization (Helleiner,
2004; Stiglitz, 2002).

The multinational firms are facing an increasingly unstable international
investment climate due to the economic nationalism leading to foreign
assets being taken over by domestic governments by nationalizing the
strategic assets like minerals and oil (Wagner and Disparte, 2016; Green,
2008). The CEO’s and managers of the multi-nationals have to explore the
political-risk insurance. For domestic and multi-national firms, the
negative sentiments about immigration will have an impact on global talent
management, foreign domestic investment and mergers and acquisitions. The
business leaders of domestic and multinational firms have to devise new
strategies to deal with the governments, consumers and markets in this new
environment. The multinational corporations have to overcome the
protectionist sentiments among consumers and government regulators and
reinvent their corporate social responsibility models. They have to think
about the new strategies in dealing with the country-specific perspectives
of economic nationalism.

Objective of the Book
Cconomic nationalism creates uncertainty for domestic and global business
leaders. In this uncertain environment, the business leaders have to come
up with new strategies to deal with consumers, governments, and markets.
This book will aim to provide an understanding of the recent rise of the
economic nationalism in the context of the hyper connected global economy.
Strategies for the managers of the domestic and international firms will be
discussed to make their firms successful. Country-specific perspectives of
economic nationalism will be presented. A balanced perspective will be
presented where economic nationalism and globalization can co-exist.

Target Audience
