Competing for Foreign Direct Investment
Lanza, Kenneth; San Martin, Tessie
Community College Journal, v75 n3 p34-37 Dec 2004-Jan 2005
In a globalized economy, the meaning of the word "community" has changed. No businessperson today can afford to ignore what is happening outside his or her hometown. The same goes for community college executives. No community can generate economic growth without business growth. Businesses need factors of production, such as labor, capital, technology, and expertise, to develop and grow. Globalization has made these factors of production very mobile. It is no surprise that, today, understanding what elements affect and influence Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flows has become an increasing concern to community planners, educators, and business leaders around the world. FDI offers opportunities for (and challenges to) economic growth and development outside the borders of the local community.
