Industrial Structure and Country Risk in a Nordic Perspective

Oxelheim, Lars LU (1984) In Unitas Quarterly Review 56(4). p.99-111
Abstract
Foreign investors in the Nordic countries are most likely to find country risk arising from problems on the supply side, as in corporate structural changes.

Any assessment of country risk must start with an evaluation of the longer term survival potential and competitive strength of the companies in the country concerned. This requires analysis of the industrial structure in terms of: 1. production and organization at the national level, 2. the conceptual content of... (More)

Any assessment of country risk must start with an evaluation of the longer term survival potential and competitive strength of the companies in the country concerned. This requires analysis of the industrial structure in terms of: 1. production and organization at the national level, 2. the conceptual content of production, and 3. the degree of diversification of production. Organization should be assessed in terms of: 1. ownership structure, 2. degree of concentration and internationalization, and 3. degree of diversification. The indicators are analyzed for Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway, revealing a pattern of risk on the supply side. (Less)
