Abstract
Despite the fact that numerous studies have attempted to analyze the effects that inward foreign direct investment (FDI) has on the host economy, a clear and decisive conclusion of the net impact has not been drawn (Chang & Xu, 2008; Zhang, Li, Li, & Zhou, 2010). In fact, some scholars have identified positive FDI spillover effects in emerging markets (Blomstrom, 1986; Buckley, Clegg, & Wang, 2007; Tian, 2007; Wei & Liu, 2006), while others have found negative or nonexistent effects on the domestic economy (Aitken & Harrison, 1999; Feinberg & Majumdar, 2001).
