HOST COUNTRY WELFARE EFFECTS OF FOREIGN DIRECT INVESTMENT (FDI) AND IMPORTS: AN APPLICATION TO THE PROCESSED FOOD INDUSTRY

Alper Yilmaz

No 21585, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: In case of tariff-induced capital inflow, growth might be immiserizing, under certain assumptions for the host country. Higher levels of foreign direct investment (FDI) might be associated with higher wages and employment levels in a host country, justifying the forbearance of some countries to the immiserizing effects of FDI.
