Analyzes the extent to which Russian and other Soviet successor
states are likely to attract inward foreign direct investment over
the next decade or two, noting that though such investment has been
growing, the western multinationals have been slow to commit large
sums. Combines the current theoretical knowledge of foreign capital
and technology transfers to eastern Europe with a close examination
of the investment strategy of multinationals in Russian, Ukraine,
Kazakhstan, and the Baltic countries.
