Infrastructures et flux de capitaux privés vers les pays en développement

  • Tidiane Kinda

This paper shows the relevance of physical infrastructure and financial development for developing countries attractiveness to private capital (Foreign Direct Investments [fdi] and portfolio investments). Contrary to other studies, this analysis is based on ?push-pull factors? and the ?Lucas paradox? theoretical approaches, and takes into account the relationship between components of capital flows. The analysis also highlights the importance of non-linearity effects when assessing the role of infrastructure for capital inflows and the specificity of Sub-Saharan African countries compared to other developing countries. Classification JEL : C30, F21, F32, F34.
