Abstract

■ Resource dependence theory was used to develop hypotheses on whether keiretsu affiliation, mutual dependence between the automaker core and supplier firms, and internationalization level of the affiliate firm have an effect on its performance. ■ The hypotheses were tested on archival data from the entire population of 470 first-tier automobile components suppliers in Japan.
