A reflection on this topic would include your ideas as to whether this sort of corporation is a force for good or for bad in the world.

Opinions on this topic are very similar to opinions on the impacts of globalization.  One can argue that transnational corporations (and globalization) bring economic development to poorer countries.  They allow people in those countries to have better opportunities than they would have if they could only work for companies based in their countries.  On the other hand, one can argue that transnational corporations take over a country and dominate it in ways that are meant to help the firm rather than the company.  One could say that companies based in a country are more likely to care about the fate of that country and its people.

In this way, it is possible to see transnational corporations as good or bad, depending on one's point of view.
