|Title:||Corruption and Foreign Direct Investments: A Panel Analysis||Contributor(s):||Wijeweera, A (author); Dollery, BE (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1017||Abstract:||This paper investigates the effects of corruption on foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows controlling for other relevant determinants using a panel data approach for 45 countries over 1997-2004. While economic theory suggests that corruption should discourage FDI, many notably corrupt countries receive substantial FDI - an anomaly worthy of investigation. In common with other empirical work, we find no statistically significant impact of corruption on FDI. This suggests that policies designed to attract additional foreign FDI should focus on corporate income taxes and other determinants of investment rather than on the intractable problem of reducing the level of corruption.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||35th Australian Conference of Economists (ACE), Curtin University of Technology, Perth, 25-27 September, 2006||Conference Details:||35th Australian Conference of Economists (ACE), Curtin University of Technology, Perth, 25-27 September, 2006||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 35th Australian Conference of Economists (ACE), p. 1-25||Publisher:||Economic Society of Australia||Place of Publication:||Curtin, WA||Field of Research (FOR):||190404 Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.business.curtin.edu.au/files/Wijeweera_Dollery.pdf
