Abstract [en]

In this paper we argue that subsidiary technology transfer competence is a determinant of subsidiary bargaining power, and that subsidiaries can exploit such power to pursue their own ends. We suggest that this kind of behaviour, rent-seeking, can manifest itself in intra-firm relationships. An empirical analysis, using Three Stage Least Squares, is performed comprising intra-firm technology transfers among MNC subsidiaries providing general support for the predictions. Consequently, this paper advances the understanding of subsidiary sources of power within the MNC and organizational determinants of rent-seeking.
