The Location of the United States' FDI under the Share Gravity Model

Contents:

Author Info

  • de Mello Sampayo, F.

Abstract

This paper examines how United States' multinational enterprises (MNEs) spread their foreign activities among concurrent destinations. An econometric estimation of the share gravity model is presented to show that, unlike previous applications of the gravity model to the study of foreign direct investment (FDI), the share of FDI pertaining to a particular location is determined not only by its own characteristics but also by the characteristics of competing locations.
