Foreign Investment in the Petroleum and Mineral Industries
Case Studies of Investor-Host Country Relations
RFF Press – 2011 – 459 pages
Raymond F. Mikesell deals with sources of conflict between private foreign investors and the governments of developing countries. He concludes that government ownership and control will expand and that foreign investors are most likely to become sellers of their special services rather than remain investors who act freely for the benefit of parent companies.
