dc.description.abstractThe paper explores the linkage between income growth rates and foreign direct investment(FDI) inflows. So far the evidence is rather mixed, as no robust relationship between FDI andincome growth has been established. We argue that countries need a sound businessenvironment in the form of good government regulations to be able to benefit from FDI.Using a comprehensive data set for regulations, we test this hypothesis and find evidence thatexcessive regulations restrict growth through FDI only in the most regulated economies. Thisresult holds true for different specifications of the econometric model, including instrumentalvariable regressions.en_US
