The share of US output held by foreign-controlled firms tripled during the 1980s, but the growth of foreign direct investment in the United States fell sharply after 1990. In the first and second editions of Foreign Direct Investment, Graham and Krugman provided the first seminal analysis of FDI growth in the 1980s and its economic and national security implications. This third, extensively revised, edition analyzes the post-1990 downturn, updates all statistics, provides new analysis based on statistical series not previously available, and assesses recent legislative proposals to restrict FDI.
