Multinational firms and backward linkages : a critical survey and a simple model

Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

In this chapter, we develop a simple model that explores FDI's effect on backward linkages and that accommodates both of these preceding views. The model considers the effects of a multinational's entry that enjoys market power and also transfers technology to the local economy. We also provide a detailed discussion of the existing analytical work on FDI and backward linkages in order to highlight the contribution made by our model and to indicate avenues for future research.
