Lorraine Eden holds the Gina and Anthony Bahr (‘91) Professorship[2] in Business in the Department of Management at the Mays Business School of Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas.[3] She is an expert in the field of International Transfer Pricing, which is the pricing of products that move between subunits of Multinational Enterprises (MNEs).

Eden has more than 150 scholarly publications in the fields of international business, strategic management, international political economy and international economics.[4] She has been identified as a prolific scholar in terms of number of publications in the top 45 high-impact business journals in 2010 and 2005-2015.[5][6] She is listed as one of the Top 10% Female Economists, as of April 2015 by the Research Papers in Economics[7]

Eden is an author/editor of six books, including Governance, Multinationals and Growth with Wendy Dobson, which was nominated for the International Political Economy Group's Best Book Award in 2005.[8] She also edited the book Multinationals in North America in 1994, which provided valuable insights into the activities of the Multinational Enterprises as they relate to the society.[9][10]

Her best known book is Taxing Multinationals: Transfer Pricing and Corporate Income Taxation in North America,[11] published in April 1998 by the University of Toronto Press. Taxing Multinationals, a seminal work in the field of transfer pricing, is a multidisciplinary study, which explains the basic motivations and structures of multinational enterprises, their trade patterns in the North American continent; introduces the fundamentals of corporate income taxation to build upon the concepts of international transfer pricing—including transfer pricing procedures in the United States and Canada, transfer pricing manipulation, and ways to effectively reform the tax transfer pricing policies.[12]

Eden also served as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of International Business Studies, the top-ranking academic journal in the field of international business, from July 2007 to December 2010.

Education and career[edit]

Eden completed her PhD in Economics with Distinction from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada. She was a student of and wrote her PhD dissertation - titled, "A Microeconomic Theory of Multinational Behavior Under Trade Barriers" - under noted economist, Carl Shoup when he arrived at Dalhousie University's Economics department in the capacity of a Senior Killam Fellow in 1974 after retiring from Columbia University.[13] Her 1991 edited book, Retrospectives on Public Finance,[14] was a collection of essays, which were presented at a conference in Ottawa in I989 in honor of Dr. Carl Shoup.[15][16]

Joining them to the right of Carl Shoup is William Vickrey; Richard Musgrave is second from the right in the front row; Peggy Musgrave is second from the left in the front row.[17]

Eden served as an associate professor from 1988 to 1992 and full professor from 1992 to 1995 at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at the Carleton University. Eden received a Pew Faculty Fellowship in International Affairs Case Teaching and Research from 1991 to 1992, and a Canada-US Fulbright Research Fellowship from 1992 to 1993 to teach at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. She joined the Mays Business School of Texas A&M University in 1995 as an associate professor, and has served as a full professor since 2002. Eden has also held visiting professorships at Harvard University, University of Texas at Austin, University of Reading, and The Ohio State University.

Eden is regularly consulted by major multinational corporations, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development[18][19] and government tax authorities in matters relating to international tax and transfer pricing.[20] In 2001, she helped the US Bureau of Labor Statistics in redesigning the US import and export price indexes; this was done to more precisely represent the intra-firm transactions of multinational enterprises.[21][22]
