Abstract

Es wird häufig vermutet, dass sich die Bestimmungsgründe ausländischer Direktinvestitionen im Prozess der Globalisierung nachhaltig verändert haben. Diese These wird am Beispiel der deutschen Direktinvestitionen in Entwicklungs- und Reformländern korrelations- und regressionsanalytisch untersucht. Es finden sich kaum Belege dafür, dass nicht-traditionelle Determinanten im Zeitablauf an Bedeutung gewonnen haben. Vielmehr dominieren weiterhin traditionelle Faktoren wie die MarktgröÂße der Gastländer von deutschen Direktinvestitionen. It is widely believed that the determinants of foreign direct investment have changed fundamentally in the process of globalization. We apply correlation and regression analyses in order to test this proposition for German direct investments in developing and transition economies. Indications are few that non-traditional determinants have become more important over time. We rather find that traditional determinants, notably the market size of host countries, continue to dominate German direct investments.
