  • Frederick Stapenhurst
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


Formal political risk assessment is a more frequent corporate function in US MNCs than elsewhere. Tables 5.1 and 5.2 show that, by 1987, nine of America’s top 25 industrial corporations and fourteen of the top 25 banks had institutionalized the political risk assessment function. This chapter reviews the role and organization of these American political risk assessment units.
