Migration and Foreign Direct Investment in the Globalization Context: the Case of a Small Open Economy
The main objective of the paper is to establish the link between the exogenous migration shocks and endogenous foreign direct investment flows in a small open economy setting with international capital mobility, immobile labour and a non-traded good. I find that the immigration of the high-skilled individuals and FDI flows are always complements in the quantity sense. The immigration of the low-skilled individuals will cause an outflow (inflow) of capital, if domestic non-traded and imported goods are relatively weak (strong) substitutes in consumption. Besides, I explain the attitudes of native individuals towards high-skilled and low-skilled immigrants.
