Study focuses on the regional and rural implications of foreign direct investment in the United States (FDIUS).

In this regard, study analyzes existing government data on FDIUS and surveys foreign and domestic firms in the auto, semiconductor, and computer industries about their operations. Study seeks to understand the job creation potential and industrial linkages of foreign companies.

Study also examines state and local policies designed to attract foreign investment. Researchers asked the firms in their sample to rank location factors and public industrial development incentives to determine which were most important to them. Study includes a separate survey to state and local development officials to see which incentives they considered most useful.
