Globalization and the Quality of Foreign Direct Investment

Nagesh Kumar (Author)
Synopsis With increasing globalization in recent years. FDI has received considerable attention from researchers and policy analysts. Governments in developing countries have attempted to attract overseas investments to fill resource gaps that constrain development. However, they continue to overlook the quality dimension in terms of developmental impact and favourable externalities such as knowledge spillovers. One of the first books to define the parameters of quality of FDI from a development perspective, this volume: Covers various branches of industry across countries over time; Evolves analytic models with structural, geopolitical, and policy factors as determinants to explain the patterns of quantity and quality of inflows; Enables countries to assess their comparative advantage for specific types of inflows; Analyses implications of the emerging WTO regime; Draws policy implications for international intervention in the context of developing countries; This is an invaluable resource for researchers across the globe, policy-makers and development experts.
