The Effect of Population Health on Foreign Direct Investment
David E. Bloom and
NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc
We conduct a panel data analysis of 74 countries over 1980 2000 to investigate whether population health affects foreign direct investment inflows. Our main finding is that health has a positive and significant effect on such inflows for low- and middle-income countries. This finding is consistent with the view that health is an integral component of human capital in developing countries.
