Empirical Study of the Impact of Resource Inflows on Domestic Investment in Developing Countries

Past Research Projects

The effectiveness of foreign aid and other financial resources will be disentangled in this study of cross-country panel data. Specifically, the study seeks to learn the effects of foreign aid, remittances, foreign direct investment and other financial resources on domestic investment in developing countries. This will shed light on the economic growth effects of foreign financial assistance. Where possible, the study attempts also to seek synergy effects between foreign aid and other financial flows and among aid modalities.
