Notes
  • This paper investigates the impact of direct investment by foreign-owned companies on technical progress and hence labour productivity in the UK manufacturing sector.

There is evidence of significant intra-industry and inter-industry spillovers from inward investment. These findings remain robust even when other factors such as imports and domestic R&​D expenditures are allowed for. Inward investment appears to be a much more important source of technical progress than foreign trade ... Ce document étudie l’impact de l’investissement direct par des sociétés sous contrôle étranger sur le progrès technique et, par conséquent, la productivité du travail dans le secteur de l’industrie manufacturière du Royaume-Uni.

Il y a des signes de retombées intraindustrielles et interindustrielles significatives consécutives aux investissements entrants. Ces résultats demeurent robustes même en tenant compte d’autres facteurs tels que les importations et les dépenses R-D nationales. Les investissements entrants semblent être une source plus importante de progrès technique que le commerce extérieur ...
