About the Authors
  • This book develops a partisan theory of foreign direct investment (FDI) to explain cross-country and temporal variance in the regulation of foreign investment and in the amount of FDI inflows that countries receive. The author explores the host governments' partisan alignment, whether pro-labor or pro-capital, to determine if they will be more open or closed to FDI. To reach this determination, the book derives the conditions under which investment flows should be expected to affect the relative demand for the services supplied by economic actors in host countries. Based on these expected distributive consequences, a political economy model of the regulation of FDI and changes in investment performance within countries and over time is developed. The theory is tested using both cross-national statistical analysis and two case studies exploring the development of the foreign investment regimes and their performance over the past century in Argentina and South Korea.

    • Includes a fully specified political economy model of the distributive consequences of foreign investment and its impact on the policies chosen by host governments and the location decisions chosen by foreign investors
    • Cross-national statistical analyses of the impact of government partisanship on both FDI regime restrictiveness and the FDI performance of host countries
    • Provides thorough case studies of the co-evolution of the Argentine and South Korean political contexts and foreign investment regimes
