Abstract:We study the impact of foreign direct investment using a macroeconomic two-sector model of the small open economy with exible exchange rates and perfect capital mobility. The focus is on horizontal greenfield investment and its effects on production, exchange rates, exports, imports, and welfare. In the host country, FDI harms the established industries. Despite this incoming FDI increases welfare. In the home country, FDI lowers domestic output of the established industries, too, and decreases welfare.
