Abstract

This paper examines the changes in the internationalization of innovation created by the recent surge of Chinese innovative firms and the resultant effects on global economic organization. Drawing insights from the international business, economic geography, and development studies literatures, we investigate the rise and internationalization of Chinese innovative firms from the perspective of strategic coupling, decoupling, and recoupling. This novel approach provides a first glimpse into the potential impact of Chinese innovative firms on global business leadership, power relationships in global value chains, and ultimately into global economic organization.
