Project description

We contribute to the literature on internationalization decision and affiliate location choice by explicitly accounting for the impact of other firms' behavior. Individual firms are able to learn from the decision of other firms which lowers uncertainty. We test whether behavior of firms that are geographically nearby, are competitors or are linked through supply chain affects a given firm's strategy.
