The Cost Of U.S. Direct Foreign Investment


Author Info

  • Glenn Jenkins

    (Queen's University, Kingston, On, Canada)



This paper focuses narrowly on developing a set of estimates of the cost in terms of the financial real rate of return the Canadian economy has paid to the U.S. residents who have made direct investments in Canada. These estimates will then be compared with corresponding real net-of-tax private rates of return generated by capital in the Canadian industrial sectors to find out if there is significant difference between the net return received by U.S. as compared to Canadian residents who have invested in Canada.
