Abstract:I test these hypotheses using a sample of Japanese manufacturing investments made in the United States between 1978 and 1990. The results show that Japanese firms that followed acquisition strategies had lower growth than those that employed greenfield strategies in three cases: (1) when the industries entered were characterized by tacit knowledge, (2) when they were highly unionized, and (3) when the firms transferred firm-specific technology. On the other hand, they were likely to achieve higher growth when they transferred marketing competencies.
