Domestic governance policies: How efficient a country is in terms of its governmental practices. This will have a significant impact on whether or not companies will do business with a state. Several aspects: 1. Security: Can the state protect businesses? States engaged in civil wars, or states that have failed, are unable to provide security for a functioning market. 2.
