The Financing of Foreign Direct Investment examines the communication gap between business leaders and international economists when it comes to financing the overseas operations of domestic firms. Gilman argues that economists and business people have been speaking 'two different languages' when it comes to these issues, and he explores the different positions adopted by economists and business people to provide a plausible explanation of the determinants of capital flows financing foreign direct investment that incorporates the main elements of both approaches.
The Investment Perspective revisits the ancient story of three men and the fateful gift that would shape their destinies. Compelled by their benefactor to engage in a game of chance, they are torn between two motives so old as to transcend culture, race, religion and time. Their choice and ours, when faced with the same struggle, is of such consequence as to make all other questions shrink in comparison. This book seeks to shed light on this common perplexity and to follow its ramifications to their ultimate end. While its message has sober implications, it is intended to give hope and encouragement toward a simple course which if pursued, will yield dividends of meaningfulness, significance and ultimately, joy.
By critically appraising current theories of both Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and agglomeration, this book explores the variety of links that exist between these two externality-creating phenomena. Using in-depth empirical research on Mexico, Jacob Jordaan constructs and analyzes several datasets on Mexican manufacturing industries at various geographical scales, creating innovative models on FDI externalities that incorporate explicitly regional considerations. The empirical findings identify both direct FDI spillover effects as well as the effects of agglomeration on these externalities. In extension of this, the analysis also contains analysis of FDI productivity effects that arise through inter-firm linkages between FDI and local Mexican suppliers.
