Series: Regions and Cities
With the emergence of a truly global marketplace, regions now face far greater competition in attracting outside investment, and multinational companies have to consider local conditions on many levels before choosing to invest. Foreign Direct Investment and the Global Economy looks at the pattern of FDI and its impacts on the global, regional (trade block), national and sub-national scales. The contributors describe the much discussed global-local interlay apparent in the operations of multinational companies and their involvement with 'regulatory' institutions at different levels, from the global to the local.
Part I: FDI and the Global Economy. Part II. FDI and Regional Integration. Part III. National Experience of FDI. Part IV: FDI and Subnational Development.
