Abstract: This paper analyzes the determinants of people's attitudes towards FDI using a survey-based data set that covers a wide range of rich and poor countries. We find that both individual socioeconomic characteristics and macroeconomic and institutional factors shape agents' attitudes towards multinational norms. Moreover, we find that the inuence of an individual's characteristics such as education and the status as an entrepreneur depends on the respective country's per-capita income.
