Why do firms die? This volume seeks to explore international and cross-disciplinary perspectives, if you like a forensic examination, autopsy or post mortem of 'how and why' companies die. This alternate perspectives flips the focus on survival, as all existing firms are in truth survivors, to consider through the metaphors of death, (with forensic analysis, autopsy, post mortems and crime scene investigations) the lessons 'dead firms' might offer. This book will contribute to the understanding of the development, antecedents, processes and consequences of corporate insolvency around the world. In general lines, insolvency is a state in which the debtor is proven unable to pay corporate debtors. We aim to explore the contemporary causes and effects of corporate cross-border insolvency (CCBI). In the realms of international business, CCBI could be mediated by events experienced during the internationalization of the firm, which may encompass a loss of capital, loss of revenue and loss of credit.

Bucking the trend of business literature to be optimistic and its focus on the US, scholars of economics and business management from emerging and industrialized nations analyze cross-border insolvency at different levels of analysis and with different emphases. They cover what kills a reputation: post-mortem analysis of Jekyll-Hyde business leaders, the Peruvian Amazon Company's death: the jungle devoured them, whether government's intervention can reduce external financing of firms' working capital in Nigeria, survival and death in the Indian corporate sectors, public policy restricting free flow of capital, exchange rate control, and possible effects of cross-border insolvency: the case of Latin American countries, the El Zancudo mining company, and the extent to which differences in legal systems affect cross-border insolvency: evidence from foreign-owned Italian firms. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.
