About this book


Foreign direct investment is an important part of an increasingly global political economy. This book explores the consequences of this investment in six countries in the Global South. The country-comparison chapters detail the political and economic situations of these countries, and their policies and experiences with foreign direct investment. One chapter examines the statistical patterns among foreign direct investment and its expected outcomes. The analysis indicates that the effects of foreign direct investment are shaped by existing development patterns.
