This paper analyses the relationship between the transnational firm and the nation-state in capitalist economies. Following a critical appraisal of mainstream and radical theories of the transnational firm and the nation-state we proceed in analysing their relationship within a proposed rivalry and collusion framework. It is suggested that nonantagonistic differences between the two actors lead to potentially rivalrous behaviour, which however incorporates the seeds of collusive arrangements.
