The Relationship Between Domestic and Outward Foreign Investment Revisited: The Impact of Industry-Specific Effects
The ambiguity reported in previous research as regards the effect of foreign direct investment (FDI) on domestic investments is shown to be related to how industries are organized. Based on a simple model including monitoring and trade costs, we argue that a complementary relationship should prevail in vertically integrated industries, whereas a substitutionary relationship can be expected in horizontally organized production. Applying iterative SUR-technique, the empirical analysis confirms a significant difference between the two categories of industries. To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to reconcile the inconclusiveness reported in previous empirical analyses.
