What Is FDI?

By June 23, 2012

Follow me on:

FDI (it stands for foreign direct investment) is one of those acronyms that politicians, diplomats, and trade reps toss around a lot. It's just what it sounds like, foreign nations investing in our country, and us investing in theirs.

I've heard Americans all my life lament how we're "selling off our country," but FDI isn't like that. Turns out it's a capital stimulus, and everybody clamors after it. Take a look.
