Local labor market conditions and foreign direct investment flows in the U.S
This study evaluates the impact of industry and state-specific economic conditions on inward Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in several states in the U.S. FDI inflows in the U.S. are attracted by high industry and state specific labor productivity, and also by high state spending on education. Multinational companies seem to highly value a productive and educated labor force. Copyright International Atlantic Economic Society 2004
