Estrin, Saul, Richet, Xavier and Brada, Josef C., eds. (2000) Foreign direct investment in central eastern Europe: case studies of firms in transition. The microeconomics of transition economies. M.E. Sharpe, Inc., New York, USA. ISBN 9780765602558

Full text not available from this repository.


At the core of this book are twelve case studies of foreign direct investment in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, and Slovenia. The studies include major firms such as Skoda, Danone, and American Standard, as well as smaller ventures, and cover the same sectors for each country. Careful selection of cases and use of a common analytical framework permits useful comparisons and assessment of: --the role of country, sector, technology, and firm-specific characteristics in determining the pattern and nature of FDI; --the potential implications of FDI for the competitiveness of the investing firms; --the impact of infusions of capital investments, technology, and managerial resources for the host economies; the policy implications for host countries and relevant international institutions.
