Foreign direct investment in Latin America : examining differences between high, middle, and low income nations from the period 2005-2012

by Brown, Molly Ruth

Abstract

The main focus of this study is to examine factors that impact foreign direct invest based on differences in development of Latin American nations. Twenty-one countries are divided into low, middle, and high income groups based on wealth. All econometric tests are conducted for each individual economic subgroup. A random effects model is used to analyze the data. The study finds that there is a great deal of correlation between dependent and independent variables at the low level, less correlation at the middle level, and very little correlation at the high-income level. These results show that variables have different explanatory power based on how wealthy a nation is suggesting development effects a corporation’s decision to invest.
