Abstract

This paper tests an eclectic theory of the relationship of choice of factor proportions to foreign ownershi p, export propensity, and level of development, using a sample of fir ms in several industries from four areas of Latin America. In eclecti c technology theory, provided that foreign ownership is a positive de terminant of capital intensity, higher export propensity by transnati onal firms is, ceteris paribus, a cause of lower capital intensity. M ore "appropriate" technology and the associated employment benefits will tend to follow from a policy of encouraging entry of exporter f irms and promoting international competition.
