Seaman, Bruce A. and Moore, Robert E. (2003): International trade and economic development: Can foreign direct investment be predicted?
Download (616kB) | Preview
It would appear obvious that not all countries and industries are equally good business recruitment targets for the state’s economic development efforts. However, partly due to data limitations, little detailed research has been done to clarify how a state might direct its recruitment strategies to those industries and countries more likely to be seeking foreign direct investment (FDI) opportunities within the United States. This paper is a move toward rectifying this deficiency.
