MEASUREMENT OF THE GAINS FROM FOREIGN OWNED CAPITAL - The Canadian Case
AbstractThe main body of theory concerning international investment has dealt primarily with the derivation of the conditions under which it is necessary to either subsidize or tax traded goods and foreign investment in order to obtain the optimum level of foreign investment for the welfare maximization of either the host or lending country. Using the two sector, two country model where only one factor is mobile but both goods are traded, a number researches have concluded that under competitive conditions, capital-rich countries tie up too great a proportion of their resources in foreign ventures. This paper considers this issue in a world where there is taxation in the host and in the home country of the foreign investor.
