Does foreign direct investment promote development? by Theodore H Moran ( )
11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,087 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 proposed new avenues for future research

The purpose of this report is to present the ideas and experiences of some of the most distinguished practitioners from the investor, financial, and investment insurance communities in the world. To assist the reader, this volume's editor provides a brief overview to introduce each of the separate topics. Topics focus on the multiple pledge-of-shares problem; the preferred creditor status; breach of contract coverage in infrastructure projects, and OPIC modified expropriation coverage (using an Indonesian case study); securitizing political risk insurance; and cooperation, competition, and the "science of pricing" in the political risk insurance marketplace. -- Publisher description
Foreign direct investment and development the new policy agenda for developing countries and economies in transition by Theodore H Moran ( )
19 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,016 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."--BOOK JACKET

Three threats an analytical framework for the CFIUS process by Theodore H Moran ( )
8 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 877 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 : launching a second generation of policy research : avoiding the mistakes of the first, reevaluating policies for developed and developing countries by Theodore H Moran ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 333 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

Harnessing foreign direct investment for development : policies for developed and developing countries by Theodore H Moran ( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Does foreign direct investment (FDI) channel capital and know-how to developing countries? Or does it bring corruption and abuse of labor standards? Harnessing Foreign Direct Investment for Development confirms that FDI's contribution to development can be extremely powerful but that some forms of FDI, especially in infrastructure, have serious adverse consequences. Theodore Moran shows for the first time how some investors circumvent U.S. and host country laws and international treaties outlawing corrupt payments without risking prosecution, and he offers recommendations on what to do about it."--BOOK JACKET
