About the product

This Report analyses the phenomenal growth of world foreign direct investment in the 1980s. In particular, it focuses on the Triad - the United States, the EC and Japan - which accounted for four-fifths of all foreign direct investment to the rest of the world in that period. One significant discovery of this study is that the United States is now the largest recipient country of foreign direct investment. Inflows come mainly from the EC and Japan. However, its position as a source country has declined dramatically.
