Abstract
  • This research studies the effect of corruption on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in various industries. We use industry level data of US Investments abroad in 60 host countries from 1990 to 2002. We explore the questions of whether corruption is an impediment to FDI and if so, how does this effect translate to different industrial sectors. The main element of interest is to see whether the impact of corruption is uniform across all industries or whether corruption affects various sectors differently depending on the nature of the sector. We conduct our study using a panel data model and find that the industry response to corruption is actually dissimilar across our given set of industries, based on the nature of the industry. Furthermore, we divide our dataset into sub samples of Less Developed Countries (LDC) and Developed Countries (DC) using GDP per capita as our basis for the distinction. We find corruption to attract FDI in our group of DC. In the case of LDC, we find the impact of corruption on FDI to vary from industry to industry.
