Foreign Investment: Types, Methods and Impacts $170.00
Editors: Torre DeSare and Daniele Caprioglio
Book Description:
Many governments are engaged in the attraction and facilitation of foreign direct investment (FDI) into their economies. The reason for this is that foreign-owned firms can generate a variety of positive impacts on their host economies, related to capital investments, employment creation and the generation of export revenues. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of foreign investments, including technology gaps, agglomeration and FDI spillovers; globalization and the rise of logistical foreign direct investments in Italy; comparison of FDI and domestic producer firms; the risk management strategy of foreign direct investment, political risk and corporate social responsibility and the effect of inward FDI on economic growth in the League of Arab States. (Imprint: Nova)
