Laura Páez presents a detailed survey of the economic theory of FDI and expands the application of this theory to commercial banking. Páez offers an in-depth discussion on the rationales for international regulation of financial sector FDI before moving on to analyse how multilateral trade rules apply to FDI and financial services in OECD countries.
The book also undertakes an economic assessment of the impact of liberalisation on financial sector FDI, looking at measures, trends and determinants in the OECD, before conducting an econometric analysis of how multilateral rules affect FDI location in commercial banking and offering policy recommendation for those countries seeking to attract greater FDI in this sector.This book is essential reading for postgraduates studying international trade, international finance, international law and economics.
It will also be of interest to NGOs, policy-makers and diplomats in the field of international trade, finance and development.
