About this book

Anthony Bende-Nabende focuses on the ongoing globalization process, which has sparked an unprecendented worldwide debate. He seeks to provide a "one-stop centre" for a balanced coverage of the theoretical, empirical and policy issues linking globalization with foreign direct investment, regional economic integration, and economic growth and sustainable development. This text proposes policies that individual countries should pursue, based on the recognition that globalization generates both positive and negative effects. These comprise policies required to maximize the economic benefits globalization may generate, and those that aim to minimize the negative development-orientated effects globalization may engender.


Contents

Introduction to the theories of international integration and international production; global and regional FDI trends; the globalization debate - anti-globalization views; FDI and economic growth - pro-globalization views; policy considerations.
