Does foreign direct investment promote development? by Theodore H Moran( )

18 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the impact of foreign direct investment (FDI) on development? The answer is important for the lives of millions, if not billions, of workers, families, and communities in the developing world. The answer is crucial for policymakers in developing and developed countries, and in multilateral agencies. This volume gathers together the cutting edge of new research on FDI and host country economic performance and presents the most sophisticated critiques of current and past inquiries. It probes the limits of what can be determined from available evidence and from innovative investigative techniques. In addition, the book presents new results, concludes with an analysis of the implications for contemporary policy debates, and proposeds new avenues for future research
China's strategy to secure natural resources : risks, dangers, and opportunities by Theodore H Moran( )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Italian and held by 1,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rapid emergence of China as a major industrial power poses a complex challenge for global resource markets. Backed by the Chinese government, Chinese companies have been acquiring equity stakes in natural resource companies, extending loans to mining and petroleum investors, and writing long-term procurement contracts for oil and minerals. These activities have aroused concern that China might be ""locking up"" natural resource supplies, gaining ""preferential access"" to available output, and extending ""control"" over the world's extractive industries. On the demand side, Chinese appetit
Three threats : an analytical framework for the CFIUS process by Theodore H Moran( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 1,482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under what conditions might a foreign acquisition of a US company constitute a genuine national security threat to the United States? What kinds of risks and threats should analysts and strategists on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), as well as their congressional overseers, be prepared to identify and deal with? This study looks at three types of foreign acquisitions of US companies that may pose a legitimate national security threat. The first is a proposed acquisition that would make the United States dependent on a foreign-controlled supplier of goods or services that are crucial to the functioning of the US economy and that this supplier might delay, deny, or place conditions on the provision of those goods or services. The second is a proposed acquisition that would allow the transfer to a foreign-controlled entity of technology or other expertise that might be deployed in a manner harmful to US national interests. The third potential threat is a proposed acquisition that would provide the capability to infiltrate, conduct surveillance on, or sabotage the provision of goods or services that are crucial to the functioning of the US economy. This study analyzes these threats in detail and considers what criteria are needed for a proposed foreign acquisition to be considered threatening. Ultimately, the vast majority of foreign acquisitions pose no credible threat to national security on these grounds
Foreign direct investment and development : the new policy agenda for developing countries and economies in transition by Theodore H Moran( )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Foreign direct investment (FDI) has grown dramatically and is now the largest and most stable source of private capital for developing countries and economies in transition, accounting for nearly 50 percent of all those flows." "In one of the most comprehensive studies on FDI in two decades, Theodore Moran synthesizes evidence drawn from a wealth of case literature to assess policies toward FDI in developing countries and economies in transition. His focus is on investment promotion, domestic-content mandates, export-performance requirements, joint-venture requirements, and technology-licensing mandates. The study demonstrates that there is indeed a large, energetic, and vital role for host authorities to play in designing policies toward FDI, but that the needed actions differ substantially from conventional wisdom on the topic. Dr. Moran offers a pathbreaking agenda for host governments, aimed at maximizing the benefits they can obtain from FDI while minimizing the dangers, and suggests how they might best pursue this agenda." "Foreign Direct Investment and Development is an excellent textbook for courses in trade, development, and international political economy."--Jacket

Foreign direct investment in the United States : benefits, suspicions, and risks with special attention to FDI from China by Theodore H Moran( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 718 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Americans have long been ambivalent toward foreign direct investment in the United States. Foreign multinational corporations may be a source of capital, technology, and jobs. But what are the implications for US workers, firms, communities, and consumers as the United States remains the most popular destination for foreign multinational investment' Theodore H. Moran and Lindsay Oldenski find that foreign multinational firms that invest in the United States are, alongside US-headquartered American multinationals, the most productive and highest-paying segment of the US economy. These firms conduct more research and development, provide more value added to US domestic inputs, and export more goods and services than other firms in the US economy. The superior technology and management techniques they employ spill over horizontally and vertically to improve the performance of local firms and workers. As the United States wants not only to expand employment but also create well-paying jobs that reverse the falling earnings that many US workers and middle class families have suffered in recent decades, it is more important than ever to enhance the United States as a destination for multinational investors
Foreign direct investment and development : launching a second generation of policy research : avoiding the mistakes of the first, reevaluating policies for developed and developing countries by Theodore H Moran( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the culmination of Institute investigations of the relationship between foreign direct investment (FDI) and development. Today, more than one-third of world trade takes place in the form of intrafirm transactions--that is, trade among the various parts of the same corporate network spread across borders--and the bulk of technology is transferred within the confines of integrated international production systems. This means that FDI and the operations of multinational corporations have become central to the world economy at large. Nowhere is this more important than for developing countries. But as the author argues, FDI is not a single phenomenon. FDI has such different impacts in the extractive sector, infrastructure, manufacturing and assembly, and services- and presents such distinctive policy challenges-- that each broad category of FDI must be treated on its own terms. Indeed, past studies that have aggregated all FDI flows together to try to find some unique relationship to host-country growth or welfare have led to unreliable substantive findings and, sometimes, mistaken policy conclusions. The author examines each of the principle forms of FDI, extracts the best from previous analysis, and offers new findings and perspectives about how these benefits from FDI in each sector can be enhanced and potential damages limited or eliminated. -- Back Cover

Contributors to this volume consider The Brave New World of the political risk insurance industry in the wake of September 11, 2001, the Argentine economic crisis, and other upheavals. The book begins with the supply-side perspective of insurers and then turns to the concerns of investors and lenders, in particular those involved in large infrastructure projects in emerging markets. It concludes with in-depth assessments of new challenges to definitions and coverage of currency transfer, expropriation, breach of contract, and political force majeure. The diverse and detailed arguments collected here come together in a surprising consensus: recent changes, contractions, and even losses are fueling the search for creative solutions and will ultimately prove beneficial for participants in the industry.
