"With this book, Nathan Jensen offers new and exciting research on the political economy of foreign direct investment (FDI). Rich both in theory and in empirical evidence, this excellent work has far-reaching implications for political science and economics alike. Jensen argues that FDI does not simply go to countries with low taxes, but rather to countries with specific political institutions that provide credible commitments to secure investments. Beyond this contribution, he also explores more generally the impacts of democracy and international institutions on FDI."--James Raymond Vreeland, Yale University, author of The IMF and Economic Development

"Jensen systematically analyzes the relationship between foreign direct investment and political institutions, using statistical as well as interview evidence. The book's central argument is innovative: it is credibility, not taxation, that matters to multinational firms. Jensen's work should interest policy makers as well as scholars of economic globalization."--Layna Mosley, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
