The Differential Growth Effect of FDI across US Regions
In this paper we examine and assess the differential impact of FDI on growth in eight US regions, as defined by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). The results show that the manufacturing FDI-growth relationship tends to vary across regions. In particular, while the New England, Mideast, Great Lakes, Rocky Mountains and Far West regions experienced a positive growth effect of manufacturing FDI over the sample period 1977-2001, other regions showed little evidence of such a relationship. Using disaggregated data across manufacturing sectors, we also find that there are great regional variations concerning the FDI-growth nexus, and only the Great Lakes and Far West regions experienced a beneficial impact of FDI on growth in all five manufacturing sectors examined.
