Foreign Direct Investment and U.S. Jobs: A Policy Forum
On May 31, in the Rayburn House Office building, the Georgetown Center for Business and Public Policy hosted a Georgetown on the Hill policy forum on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Foreign companies have invested more in the United States than in any other country in the world. In an interactive forum, including audience Q+A, a panel of experts discussed the significance of FDI, its impact on U.S. employment, and the dynamics of and prospects for its growth. The panel discussion was moderated by J. Bradford Jensen, Senior Policy Scholar, Center for Business and Public Policy and McCrane/Shaker Chair in International Business, Georgetown University McDonough School of Business. Panelists included:
