Foreign Direct Investment in Brazil Book Review:

Foreign Direct Investment in Brazil: Post-Crisis Economic Development in Emerging Markets explores both the inward and outward ways foreign direct investment (FDI) can help Brazil sustain economic growth and development in the sometimes hostile post-global crisis era. Inward and outward FDI have major roles to play in reviving Brazil’s growth momentum and the country’s transition to a new growth paradigm less dependent on commodity exports. The book provides a comprehensive discussion on the analytical framework of FDI and the policy environment influencing the patterns and development of FDI in Brazil. It compares Brazil to other developing countries, but its focus rests on how, and to what extent, the global crisis is shaping the Brazilian institutional environment and its implications for FDI. Covers an important contemporary development issue focusing on the experience of one of the fastest growing and largest emerging economies in the world Presents econometric findings using data at different levels of aggregation Provides an in-depth study on the determinants of FDI and their relations to institutions Explores both the inward and outward ways foreign direct investment (FDI) can help Brazil sustain economic growth and development in the sometimes hostile post-global crisis era

Foreign Direct Investment Regulation in Brazil Book Review:

The goal of this article is to analyze the regulatory evolution of foreign investment in Brazil. In comparison with its peers, Brazil has enjoyed for years the reputation of a rebel regarding the regulation of foreign direct investment (FDI). In the 90s, when the world seemed to peacefully agree on the regulation of investment via bilateral investment treaties (BITs), Brazil expressed all its insurgence by resisting to this model, arguing that that such agreements confronted pro- visions of its Constitution. Challenging the view that BITs were necessary to attract investments, the absence of this regulatory instrument has not overshadowed the interest of foreign investors in the country, which remained one of the main recipients of FDI. However, changes in domestic and international economy boos-ted Brazilian companies to other countries in the south of the continent and in Africa, what led Brazilian investment policymakers to redesign the national strategy. In this context, a new regulatory model emerges again in a rebellious fashion, which is now based not on the denial of the models in place, but rather on the uniqueness of its terms. This new model addresses the so-called legitimacy crisis of the global regime of investments and promotes more balanced and cooperative investment relations. The analyses developed in this paper depart from primary (national and international regulation) and secondary documents (specialized literature).

Investment Protection in Brazil Book Review:

Although it has been ranked the fourth largest destination for foreign direct investment (FDI) in the world, Brazil seems to take a different path on the subject if compared to other countries which are instead parties to bilateral, regional and/or multilateral investment Treaties. Hence, Brazilian companies investing abroad normally act without the protection of the FDI system. Considering the country's widely acclaimed "arrival" into the small family of the world's major trading nations, the question of Brazil's entry in the international FDI system - not only as an incentive to the inflow of foreign investment, but also to protect the investments of its national companies abroad - has become a hotly debated issue. This timely book, with its incisive reports on all important aspects of the matter, tackles this subject with prodigious knowledge and insight.

Beyond the traditional export business, industrial globalization keeps penetrating the worlds countries and markets under many different forms of international businesses and strategic alliances. This term paper describes, justifies and compares two forms of cross-border business expansion strategies into the Brazilian Market that a Multi-National-Corporation (MNC) may resort to: Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and International Joint Venture (IJV). Their implementation strongly depends of the market type that a host country offers. A common denominator of both international market entry modes is the obviously advantageous presence of interests of the involved MNCs when trying to expand their businesses into host countries. This direct presence in a host country means additional speed to market and provides the MNCs far more possibilities of establishing, conduct"

Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America Book Review:

Examine the changing nature of foreign investments in Latin America! Generously enhanced with easy-to-understand charts, tables, and graphs, this book covers the ins and outs of foreign direct investment in the established and emerging markets of Latin America. In addition to an overview of direct investment for the entire Latin American region in the 1990s, this valuable book examines specific countries’ experiences with FDI in that decade. These include Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Spending on environmental projects is on the rise, and Latin American nations are at the forefront of this financial whirlwind in the developing world. Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America: Its Changing Nature at the Turn of the Century examines the difficulties of assessing environmental investments. It analyzes the role of international capital in Latin-American environmental issues and discusses the major players, such as the World Bank, in international capital and the environment. Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America presents case studies that illustrate: the history of FDI in Argentina and the impact of the privatization of state-owned enterprises in 1991-1993 the similarities and differences between 1990s FDI in Mexico and Chile the ways that modern investment in Brazil differs in purpose from investment there in previous economic eras how Peru addressed its balance-of-payments crisis in a time when its domestic financial markets were thin and there existed few sources of financing besides banks how Paraguay’s historical lack of infrastructure has hampered FDI efforts there Ecuador’s financial and balance-of-payments crisis-its currency is in free-fall and its financial institutions are on the brink of collapse . . . and much more! Foreign Direct Investment in Latin America packs all this valuable information into a single user-friendly source. As we move into the new millennium, no student, educator, or investor interested in this quickly evolving, volatile market should be without it!

FDI Determinants and TNC Strategies Book Review:

As more and more countries compete for foreign direct investment through the liberalisation of policies, privatisation and promotion programmes, their FDI regulatory frameworks are becoming similar. The appeal of any country to potential investors is then determined by other factors and the importance of these factors varies according to the global investment strategy of each transnational corporation (TNC). Governments need to understand these strategies if they are to compete successfully for scarce investments. This study was prepared at the request of the Government of Brazil.

An Investment Perspective on Global Value Chains Book Review:

This report investigates the role of foreign direct investment (FDI) in helping developing countries participate in global value chains (GVCs). It combines the perspectives and strategies from three types of players: multinational corporations, domestic firms and governments. It aims to provide practical guidance for developing countries to develop strategies that use FDI to strengthen GVC participation and upgrading. The report has six main chapters: 1. FDI and GVCs. Assesses the trade-investment nexus and analyzes the effect of FDI in countries’ GVC participation and upgrading at the country level. 2. MNCs shape GVC development. Highlights MNCs' contribution to global economy and how their business strategies shape the evolution of GVCs. The chapter also compares MNCs' business strategies in terms of outsourcing and offshoring, risk mitigation and increasing market power across GVC archetypes. 3. Domestic firm perspectives on GVC participation. Looks at the various paths domestic firms can take to internationalize their production and trade. Investigates domestic firm characteristics that predict higher GVC participation, and the effect of GVC participation on firm performance. 4. Investment policy and promotion: what is in a government’s toolbox? Summarizes the various policy instruments governments have at their disposal to help attract MNCs to their country and facilitate GVC participation of domestic firms. 5. Integrating countries into GVCs. Draws on a range of case studies to illustrate how governments can develop coherent strategies and policy packages to integrate their countries into GVCs. 6. FDI and GVCs in the wake of COVID-19. Reflects the impact of COVID-19 on FDI and GVCs, the response from multinationals and suppliers, and the implications for GVC reconfiguration. In addition, there are seven case studies that offer more nuanced analysis on the GVC participation in selected countries and sectors: • Five qualitative case studies: Five countries have been selected that managed to use FDI to stimulate GVC participation using a range of approaches. By design, these five countries also cover five different GVC archetypes. These countries are: (1) Kenya (horticulture); (2) Dominican Republic (textiles); (3) Mauritius (tourism); (4) Malaysia (electronics); (5) China (software). • Two quantitative case studies: Rwanda, West-Bengal (India). These use a combination of firm- and transaction level datasets to study firm-level dynamics that explain the role of multinational and domestic firms across GVCs.

Brazil Book Review:

Brazil is open to and encourages foreign direct investment (FDI). According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), Brazil was the fifth largest destination for global FDI flows in 2014. New FDI into Brazil reached approximately USD 64 billion in 2013, and Brazil typically receives close to half of South America's total incoming FDI. The Government of Brazil (GOB) has made attracting private investment in infrastructure a top priority for 2015. The United States is a major foreign investor in Brazil; according to the Brazilian Central Bank (BCB), the United States had the highest stock of FDI in Brazil as of 2013. While Brazil is generally considered a desirable market for investment given its large economy and growing middle class, complex tax, local content, and regulatory requirements exist. In most cases, these impediments apply without discrimination to both foreign and domestic firms. The GOB generally makes no distinction between foreign and national capital in cases of direct investment.

Playing with Fire Book Review:

Starting in the early 1990s many emerging and developing economies (EDEs) liberalized their capital accounts, allowing greater freedom for international lenders and investors to enter their markets as well as for their residents to borrow and invest in international financial markets. Despite recurrent crises, liberalization has continued and in fact accelerated in the new millennium. Integration has been greatly facilitated by progressively looser monetary policy in the United States, notably the policies that culminated in debt crises in the United States and Europe and the ultra-easy monetary policy adopted in response. Not only have their traditional cross-border linkages been deepened and external balance sheets expanded rapidly, but also foreign presence in their domestic financial markets and the presence of their nationals in foreign markets have reached unprecedented levels. As a result new channels have emerged for the transmission of financial shocks from global boom-bust cycles. Almost all EDEs are now vulnerable irrespective of their balance-of-payments, external debt, net foreign assets and international reserve positions although these play an important role in the way such shocks could impinge on them. This is a matter for concern since the multilateral system still lacks mechanisms for orderly resolution of financial crises with international dimensions. Playing with Fire provides an empirical account of deeper integration of EDEs into the global financial system and discusses its implications for stability and growth, focusing on the role of policies in the new millennium in both EDEs and the United States and Europe.
