The FDI origin was once about three groups of theories, the (a) international trade based one (i.e. works of David Ricardo and Neoclassic Synthesis/HOS), the (b) product life cycle one (i.e. works of Raymond Vernon[1]) and the so-called (c) “eclectic paradigm” (i.e. John Dunning[2]) treating from the viewpoint of enterprise (i.e. microeconomic) development up to its internationally implemented stage. Then, the last might have continued on a large diversity of theories on multinationals. Or, these theories taken as a whole do suggest at least a diversity of the FDI “substance”. Here, in our paper we use a proper empirical approach to finally demonstrate the contrary: there are not too many international capital sources.
