Abstract:Chapter 3 provides empirical evidences on the arguments discussed in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2. Estimation result based on U.S. outward FDI indicates that decentralized countries attract more FDI than unitary countries. The estimation results support the hypotheses derived from the theoretical models: A decentralized country has more FDI when sub-national governments have enough authority on FDI policies and the differences of employment gain among regions are large. Decentralization has positive effects on FDI when fiscal authority and political power is appropriately divided between central government and sub-national governments. Decentralization has significantly positive effect on FDI only in a democratic country.
