Foreign Direct Investment, Non-traded Goods and Real Wages

Reza Oladi (), John Gilbert () and Hamid Beladi

No 2008-04, Working Papers from Utah State University, Department of Economics

Abstract: Using a three-sector general equilibrium model with non-traded goods, we investigate the impact of foreign direct investment on the real wages of skilled and unskilled workers. We show that foreign direct investment increases the real wages of skilled and unskilled workers, but widens the gap between the two under plausible conditions.
