Description 9211043891 From Library Journal With the total for worldwide investment reaching some $1.5 trillion, there is a need for this title, one of a set of six covering roughly 100 countries. The work begins with an almost-35-page overview of foreign direct investment in the 1980s. Provided are up to 22 pages of tables detailing direction of investment, growth rates, investing countries, investment by sector, largest foreign affiliates, and largest transnational corporations investing overseas for 21 countries from Bangladesh to Vietnam--but not Japan. Data are generally for 1984 through 1989. This is an update of the Directory of Statistics and International Investment and Production (New York University Pr., 1987); the United Nations hopes to start issuing these data more regularly. Like most UN publications, it has extensive technical notes and footnotes but no index. The European-based Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development has also published in this area, but its works are not as detailed or current. The closest title to this one is the excellent U.S. government publication Foreign Direct Investment in the U.S. , which is very detailed for the United States only. Libraries can place this solid work in either circulation or reference. Highly recommended for libraries supporting graduate programs in finance, investments, and international business. - Patrick J.
