Foreign direct investment in the United States by Edward M Graham( Book )

28 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The share of the U.S. economy controlled by foreign firms has tripled since the mid-1970s. Graham and Krugman here provide the first comprehensive analysis of this phenomenon. Their exhaustive analysis concludes that foreign-owned firms do not pay lower wages or shift good jobs and R & D away from the U.S. However, foreign-owned firms and especially Japanese firms have a marked tendency to import much more than their American counterparts. In addition, the upsurge of foreign investment raises new issues for U.S. national security. This completely revised second edition includes updated statistics on the recent level of FDI and analyzes new legislation that would further address foreign investment in the United States

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

16 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 429 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

Global corporations and national governments by Edward M Graham( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is inherent tension between the increasingly global focus of foreign investors and the continuing national focus of governments. Countries, particularly developing ones, compete to attract investment from global corporations, and they attach performance requirements to tilt the impact of those investments in their favor. This is because the host nations expect investment to raise growth levels, efficiency, and living standards. At the same time, the home countries of such corporations worry that their firms are not accorded fair and reciprocal treatment abroad. These issues have become a source of conflict among nations, one that could escalate considerably if an agreement is not soon reached. Graham's study analyzes the nature and depth of the international investment problem and its potential impact on the world economy and on economic relations among nations. He urges that current rules on foreign direct investment be enlarged and restructured via new international rules and institutional arrangements and offers two alternatives for doing so

US national security and foreign direct investment by Edward M Graham( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States, the national security concerns associated with this investment, and treatment of these concerns under US policy. This book asks whether the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) process can be improved and answers in the affirmative.Does foreign ownership of American businesses pose a threat to the United States (like the abortive attempt by CNOOC, a Chinese company, to purchase Unocal during the summer of 2005)? This important new book examines foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States, the national security concerns associated with this investment, and treatment of these concerns under US policy. It asks whether the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) process can be improved and answers in the affirmative. The book starts by looking at the review process for foreign takeovers of US firms (including a historical review), looks at the economic and political impact on the United States of foreign direct investment, takes a detailed look at issues relating to FDI posed by the rise of China as an economic and geopolitical power and finally suggests some changes to the Exon-Florio process
Reforming Korea's industrial conglomerates by Edward M Graham( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1998, the Korean economy experienced the deepest recession since the Korean War. Within a year a number of smaller industrial conglomerates had failed. In this study, Graham examines the causes of this situation, tracing them back to the aggressive industrial policy begun by president Park Chung-hee during the late 1960s. He also analyzes reforms undertaken since 1997, concluding that they have not been entirely successful
Foreign direct investment in Japan by Edward M Graham( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foreign Direct Investment in Japan is the first serious and comprehensive examination of why the direct participation of foreign firms in the economy of Japan is lower than in any other advanced industrial nation. An internationally acclaimed group of scholars and practitioners addresses this problem and considers what policy actions, if any, the Japanese government can take to increase direct investment. Foreign exchange controls banned direct investment into Japan until the late 1970s and this is still partially responsible for the low penetration of foreign firms. A fundamental question addressed by the book is whether or not ownership advantages in technology and management know-how possessed by foreign firms are strong enough to overcome the extra costs of doing business in Japan. Such extra costs or locational disadvantages include very high land and labour costs as well as business practices unique to Japan, characterized by the long-term customized transaction relationship among assemblers, component suppliers, distributors and financial institutions and the long-time employment system. Although the Government of Japan desires to invite more foreign firms, this book demonstrates that there are many areas where direct investment has been adversely affected by internal regulation. Foreign Direct Investment in Japan explores this participation of foreign firms in this economy from the perspectives of economic theory, history, and the practical experiences of non-Japanese firms that have attempted to do business directly in Japan

Fighting the wrong enemy : antiglobal activities and multinational enterprises by Edward M Graham( Book )

17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antiglobalist forces have been gaining greater momentum in recent years in their efforts to reverse what they view as the negative effects of an integrating global economy. Their influence was felt earlier when efforts to create a Multilateral Agreement on Investment ended in 1998 after France left the bargaining table at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, effectively killing the initiative. Through an evaluation of the MAI itself and the issues raised by its opponents, Edward M. Grahan takes a fresh look at the growing backlash against globalization. He first explores whether the MAI negotiations failed due to political maneuvering by antiglobalist nongovernmental organizations or because of irreconcilable differences among the negotiating parties over the issue of foreign direct investment
