Jürgen Bitzer () and Monika Kerekes

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 100, issue 3, 355-358

Abstract: Based on industry-level data of seventeen OECD countries we examine FDI as a potential channel for knowledge diffusion. We find that FDI-receiving countries benefit strongly from FDI-related knowledge spillovers. We do not find evidence for positive outward-FDI-related technology sourcing effects.
