Transport infrastructure investments and competition for FDI

Kate Hynes, Jie Ma and Cheng Yuan

Scottish Journal of Political Economy, 2019, vol. 66, issue 4, 511-526

Abstract: This paper studies how transport infrastructure investments (TIIs) affect a bidding war for a firm between two asymmetric countries within a region in a context of imperfect competition, where TIIs play the role of a global public good, leading to a reduction in the unit trade cost between the two countries. A number of interesting results are derived from the model. In particular, TIIs can intensify fiscal competition between the two countries. Surprisingly, this conventional wisdom seems to be confirmed by this paper for the first time. Welfare implications of the model are also examined.
