This paper investigates whether an economy that lags behind in infrastructure compared with other countries can make up its shortfall when it competes for foreign direct investments. The main message of the paper is that jurisdictional competition can enable the lagging country to reduce the infrastructural gap if capital mobility is sufficiently high and the gap is not too large. Further, we show that size asymmetry reinforces (weakens) the effect in reducing the infrastructural disparity resulting from interjurisdictional competition when the lagging economy is small (large).
