Abstract

This paper shows the relevance of physical infrastructure and financial development for developing countries attractiveness to private capital (Foreign Direct Investments -FDI- and portfolio investments). Contrary to other studies, this analysis is based on “push-pull factors” and the “Lucas paradox” theoretical approaches, and takes into account the relationship between components of capital flows. The analysis also highlights the importance of non-linearity effects when assessing the role of infrastructure for capital inflows and the specificity of Sub-Saharan African countries compared to other developing countries.
