Description:

The Messy Case for FDI Spillovers - Ronald B. Davies (UCD)

Among the supposed benefits of hosting foreign direct investment is that when multinationals are active in the host market, this increases the productivity of domestic firms via technological spillovers. In this short course, we will examine the evidence on such effects. In doing so, not only will we discuss the data on FDI, but also cover the main techniques used to construct productivity. Therefore the course will be of use to those interested in productivity more generally, including those in industrial organization, development, and macroeconomics.

The course will consist of four 90 minute lectures with a short exam given afterwards for those looking for credit.
The time schedule & the room will be announced in time.
