Policy competition for foreign direct investment : a study of competition among governments to attract FDI by Charles Oman( Book )

21 editions published in 2000 in English and Spanish and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Competition for foreign direct investment has been neglected as a subject of research. Yet many claim that such competition is having deleterious effects, such as lowering governments' standards of protection of the environment and workers' rights. This book looks at the evidence and assesses the impact of competition among governments to attract FDI. It finds little evidence directly to support fears of a "global race to the bottom" in labour and environmental standards. The widespread use of investment incentives, however, in OECD and developing countries alike, tends to be bad for government transparency and accountability. This is highly detrimental both to economic policy making and to the construction of democratic institutions in developing countries. The author proposes a shift away from incentive-based policies for attracting FDI towards a rules-based approach on both a national and international level
Corporate governance in development : the experiences of Brazil, Chile, India, and South Africa by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corporate governance matters for national development. Studies of Brazil, Chile, India, and South Africa show that corporate governance has an important role to play in helping both to increase financial capital to firms in developing countries and to enhance those countries' financial development as a whole. They further show that corporate governance matters can contribute greatly to achieving sustained productivity growth in developing countries' real economies. The value of improved corporate governance for development cannot, however, be considered in isolation. In the financial sector, attention must also be given to measures to strengthen the banking sector and a country's financial institutions as a whole. To gain most from improved corporate governance in the real economy, close attention must also be given to competition policy and to reforms of sector-specific regulatory practices. The book is for civil society, NGOs and research institutes

Quelles politiques pour attirer les investissements directs étrangers ? : Une étude de la concurrence entre gouvernements by Charles Oman( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in French and English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La concurrence à laquelle se livrent les gouvernements pour attirer les IDE est un sujet de recherche qui a reçu peu d'attention jusqu'à présent. Pourtant, nombreux sont ceux qui estiment que ce phénomène a des effets néfastes, en ce qu'il conduit les pouvoirs publics à faire passer au second plan les normes de protection de l'environnement ou les droits des travailleurs. Cet ouvrage s'attache aux faits et évalue l'impact de la concurrence entre gouvernements pour attirer les IDE. Cette analyse n'apporte pas directement la preuve qu'on assiste à un recul généralisé des normes de travail et d'environnement. Toutefois, le recours massif aux incitations à l'investissement, dans les pays de l'OCDE comme dans les pays en développement, ne joue pas en faveur de la transparence et de la responsabilité des autorités à l'égard du public, ce qui est hautement préjudiciable à l'élaboration des politiques économiques et à l'édification d'institutions démocratiques dans les pays en développement. L'auteur propose d'opter pour une approche basée sur des règles nationales et internationales, plutôt que de chercher à attirer les IDE par des mesures fondées sur des incitations

Retour sur le développement by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in French and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Assurer le développement économique des pays pauvres demeure, même au troisième millénaire, un formidable défi qui préoccupe de plus en plus les pays de l'OCDE. Depuis sa création en 1962, le Centre de Développement de l'Organisation étudie les problèmes de développement dans une perspective comparative et tente d'y trouver des solutions en s'appuyant sur le vécu des économies les plus avancées. Cet ouvrage rend compte de la somme d'expériences ainsi acquise et s'interroge sur les politiques et stratégies qui pourraient, à l'avenir, contribuer à remédier aux problèmes des pays en développement. Il montre aussi comment cette institution a remarquablement bien su évoluer et se transformer pour toujours mieux accorder son action aux efforts déployés, par l'ensemble de l'OCDE, en faveur des pays, régions et populations les plus démunis. Cet ouvrage est adapté à la prescription. Les enseignants intéressés peuvent demander un specimen et une remise de 50% sera accordée aux étudiants concernés.

New forms of international investment in developing countries : the national perspective by Charles Oman( Book )

Latin America in a changing global environment by Winston Fritsch( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and French and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Latin America's insertion in the world trade system is entering a period of historical change. Driving that change will be the outcome, or failure, of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations; the increasing regionalisation of trade relations; and the profound liberalisation in Latin America of national trade regimes, which is also leading to a strong revival in the region of sub-regional integration schemes. The interaction between changes in the region's trade regimes and changes in the global determinants of foreign direct investment in manufacturing are affecting the locational advantages of Latin America as a recipient of direct investment flows as well.The effects on Latin America of regionalisation in Europe and in the Western Hemisphere are, overall, benign. "EC 1992" is likely to have a positive net impact on Latin America's exports unless dramatic, and unlikely, discriminatory measures against third parties are introduced in conjunction with the creation of the
