Columbia Foreign Direct Investment Perspectives: FDI Recession Has Begun


  • Karl Sauvant

    (Columbia University)


Since economic growth is the single most important determinant of the ability to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), the current economic slowdown, further accentuated by the financial crisis, makes key markets less attractive to invest in, thus depressing FDI flows. This article shares perspectives on FDI flows, both the current situation and trends in the near future.
