This paper simultaneously evaluates factors affecting decisions regarding the organization and location of economic activity. The paper uses data from a comprehensive sample of exchanges involving public and private global semiconductor firms over the 1990 to 2005 time period. The paper accounts for the possibility that a similar set of factors may simultaneously affect organizational- and location-decisions. The findings indicate that these decisions are highly inter-dependent, that exchange- and locational-factors are associated with both organizational- and location-decisions, and suggest that organizational- and location- decisions are at least partially substitutable.
