North-South Globalization and Foreign Direct Investment: Essays in International Economics

North-South Globalization and Foreign Direct Investment: Essays in International Economics by Jakob Schwab
English | PDF | 2018 | 150 Pages | ISBN : 3658228105 | 1.82 MB

The author shows how endowments with educational skill levels may lead to complementarity between trade and capital inflows, how inflows of direct investment capital may hinder income growth in poor countries, and how the distributional effects of the presence of multinational enterprises are perceived differently in countries of different development structures.
