About this product
- DescriptionThis book engages the question, hotly debated among theorists and policymakers alike, of how a developing country's pursuit of foreign direct investment (FDI) affects its development prospects in a globalized world. Can small latecomers to ecomic development use high-tech FDI to rapidly expand indigeus capabilities, thus shortcutting stages of the industrialization process? What conditions, ecomic and n-ecomic, must be met for this strategy to succeed? Using the cases of Ireland and Costa Rica, the author shows how the dynamics of the FDI-development nexus have changed over time, rendering problematic Costa Rica's attempt, and those of other latecomers, to replicate the Celtic Tiger's success story.
