dc.description.abstract Abstract This talk addresses the interaction of knowledge and organization in IB research, particularly research on the MNC. The argument is made that although the MNC literature is quite advanced with respect to its treatment of firm-level knowledge, several connected problems remain. In particular, there has been an over-emphasis on knowledge flows and an under-emphasis on knowledge stocks; the microfoundations of MNC knowledge are unclear; and there is a no clear understanding of the causal relations between knowledge stocks and flows and organizational control. A control theory approach that may resolve some of these problems is then sketched. Keywords The MNC, knowledge, organizational control, control theory. en_US
