Foreign Direct Investment-Led Growth: Evidence from Time Series and Panel Data
This paper develops an endogenous growth model with foreign direct investment (FDI) and examines the impact of the latter on capital accumulation, output and total factor productivity (TFP) growth in the recipient economy. Time series and panel data evidence are provided for a sample of OECD and non OECD countries in teh 1970-90 period. Although FDI is expected to boost long-run growth in the recipient economy via technological transfers and knowlege spillovers, it is shown that the extent to which FDI is growth-enhancing depends on the degreee of complementarity and substitution between FDI and domestic investment. Also, FDI is shown to be more growth-enhancing in technological followers than leaders and sensitive to unobservable country-specific effects.
