CHAPTER ONE: INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF STUDY

The activities of the MNSs have increased overtime in Nigeria in terms of investment and commerce. In the contemporary market society, corporations, particularly multinational companies (MNSs), are the motor of capitalism. Though created through law and numerous social contracts, corporations do not owe allegiance to any nation, community or locality (Bakan, 2004). It has been argued that governments and host communities may be interested in eradicating poverty, promoting education, health care and human rights, but corporations may not necessarily share such goals. They are essentially ‘private’ organisation and are required by law to prioritise the welfare of the shareholders (capital) above other stakeholders (Sikka, 2008). Corporation today are expected to conduct their operations responsibly with accountability to wider society.

To legitimise their social power corporations may acknowledge some social responsibilities, but they cannot buck the systemic requirement to increase profits and dividends to the benefit of capital. This has been accompanied by a variety of strategies to improve corporate earnings through financial engineering, cartel, money laundering, bribery and corrupt practices (Sikka, 2008; Bakre 2008ab, Otusanya, 2010, 2011). Though corruption is somewhat contentious to define, bribery and corruption remain major features of the world economy. In general, the practices involve attempts to gain competitive advantages and to enhance profits (Johnston, 2005; Otusanya, 2010). A large amount of corruption and bribery is also associated with the looting of countries by their rulers, a process that frequently carries the fingerprints of corporations (Sikka, 2008; Bakre, 2008ab; Otusanya, 2010). Corporation is all about creating wealth, and it is a highly effective vehicle for doing so. No internal limits, whether moral, ethical, or legal, limit what or whom corporations can exploit to create wealth for themselves and their owners (Bakan, 2004).

According to Sikka (2008), ‘such practices seems to be part of the ‘enterprise culture’ that persuades many to believe that ‘bending the rules’ for personal gain is a sign of business acumen’ (p. 270). Where gaining competitive advantages is considered to be an entrepreneurial skill, especially when competitive business environment link profit and market shares with meeting global business target.

1.2 STATEMENT OF RESEARCH PROBLEM

In view of this, the project work is design to look into the performance of the economy and observe how the activities of the Multinational companies (MNSs) have contributed to an increase in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and political economy of Nigeria. Nigeria has been experiencing some problems in the area of transfer of technology, employment, economic inequality and balance of payments problems.
