Abstract
Foreign direct investments (FDI) have considerably increased during the last twenty years throughout the world. Theory suggests that FDI affects host economies in a positive way through the advanced technologies they bring with them and which could spill over the domestic companies. Therefore, more and more research aims to assess the impact of foreign direct investments on the host economies. This paper focuses on analyzing the productivity spillover effect of FDI in the Swedish manufacturing industry over 1995-2007. Ordinary least squares (OLS), random effects (RE) and fixed effects (FE) estimation methods have been used along with different specifications of the model. As previously shown in the literature, the results show no... (More)
