Investimentos externos em serviços e efeitos potenciais da negociação da ALCA

O texto aborda implicações de hipotéticos resultados da negociação da Área de Livre Comércio das Américas (ALCA) sobre o Investimento Externo Direto (IED) em um conjunto selecionado de segmentos de serviços —a saber, seguro-saúde, seguro de crédito à exportação, transportes terrestres, serviços de engenharia e serviços profissionais. Partindo-se do pressuposto de homogeneização regulatória, cujo centro de gravidade estaria nas economias desenvolvidas da ALCA, examina-se em que medida o atual panorama para produtores locais, naqueles segmentos, viria a mudar diante das possibilidades de maior internação de firmas concorrentes estrangeiras.
