Foreign Direct Investment


  • Bruce A Blonigen

    (University of Oregon, USA & National Bureau of Economic Research, USA)


This book is a collection of important reference works by Bruce Blonigen on foreign direct investment (FDI). The book is primarily composed of empirical analyses of foreign direct investment behavior from an industrial organization and international trade perspective. These studies both examine determinants of FDI, as well as the effects of FDI on host and parent countries. The work examines FDI from a firm-level perspective and uses unique micro-level datasets to further understand firm-level FDI decisions and their impact on local economies. The volume should be valuable to both existing and new scholars in the field of international trade and international business. Much of the work is policy-oriented and so it will also be valuable to policymakers who follow the academic literature.
