A study of foreign direct investment stock in the U.S.economy

Автор:

Foreign direct investment (FDI) plays an extraordinary and growing role in the global economy and represents an integral part of the U.S. economy. During the past three decades, foreign direct investment has become one of the leading factors promoting the process of globalization. In the early 1970s the United States became a significant recipient of FDI. The U.S. became a host for foreign affiliates as well as a home for multi-national firms. The flow of foreign capital during the 1980’s and the second part of 1990’s has been a key factor contributing to sustained economic growth. The inward US FDI stock constitutes an important factor contributing to the output growth and employment in the U.S. economy. The related FDI literature provided empirically tested evidence on a significant impact of inward FDI stock on output growth and employment in the U.S. economy.

Essays on Access to Financial Institutions

Revision with unchanged content. This book discusses different means to reduce inequality in income and we­alth; through the use of redistributive taxation, and through im­proving the economic opportunities of poor households via better access to capital markets. The analysis focuses on the trade-off between the redistribu­tive benefits of taxation and the adverse incentive effects, the latter leading to decreased savings and potentially lower future growth rates. It further shows that the extent and composition of inequality are cru­cial for the size of the marginal welfare effects of taxation. While redistributi­on constitutes a means to improve the situation of poor households, it addresses the consequences of inequality only and not its causes. One of the most limiting factors for the economic opportunities of small entrepreneurs is the missing access to financial markets. This book looks at a microfinance institution in Bolivia, Caja Los Andes, that provides financial services to small enterprises and poor households. It examines the development of the enterprises and finds a strong increase in assets and in­come over time. The impact analysis shows a strong positive influence of loans on growth. In a final assessment of microfinance repayment behavior in a competitive environment is analyzed.
