Abstract

This article uses the push-pull factors approach to analyze the determinants of private capital flows (foreign direct investments, portfolio investments, and debt) in West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) over the period 1970-2003. The results show that (i) infrastructure, trade openness, and political instability are the main determinants of foreign direct investments; (ii) economic growth, trade openness, and infrastructure significantly explain portfolio investments; and (iii) inflation, infrastructure, and public consumption determine debt flows. Robustness checks show that these results do not depend on particular countries in the sample.
