Foreign Direct Investment News

NY Times article on the lack of oversight of state and local investment incentive programs. (HT Kyle Dropp)

The latest UNCTAD Investment Policy Monitor is out.   Lots of interesting cases of governments restricting or liberalizing FDI.

I have a Google news alert for “foreign direct investment.”  Yeah, I’m a nerd.  There are literally articles every day on whether or not India should liberalize FDI in retail.  One example here.

Bulgaria is offering citizenship in exchange for investment.  The US actually has a green cards program for individuals investing between $500,000-$1,000,000.  But there seem to be a lot of “may be eligible” parts to this legislation.
