Capital Inflow and Economic Growth

Carleton Economic Papers from Carleton University, Department of Economics

Abstract: That openness and economic growth move together is a propostition which is well supported by empirical evidence. This study is a follow-up of our earlier work in which the emphasis was on the trade dimension of openness. In this paper, we focus on foreign investment in the context of the Indian economy. We make estimates of productivity gains from capital inflows, specifically long term inflows including foreign direct investment.
