ABSTRACT
This study examined the effects of partner nationality, organizational dissimilarity, and economic motivation on the dissolution of joint ventures. Event-history analysis was used to test the hypotheses in a sample of 186 ventures. Cultural distance in general did not have an effect on dissolution, but U.S.-Japanese joint ventures lasted longer than U.S.- U.S. joint ventures. Prior relationships between partners appeared to negate some complexities arising from cultural differences. Opportunistic threat and rivalry appeared to be a stronger indication of the dissolution of joint ventures than organizational variables.
