Large companies that are headquartered in one country and have subsidiaries or branches in other countries.
Companies that maintain significant operations in more than one country simultaneously but manage them all from one base in a home country.
These corporations do business in more than one country in order to reduce transportation or import tariff charges, protect patent holdings, or otherwise enjoy monopolistic advantages. Although known 200 years ago, they are a particular feature of the post-World War II period and are controversial because they owe no particular allegiance to any national state.
