Summary

The expansion of foreign direct investment (FDI) in manufacturing and assembly has raised concerns that workers may be exploited in developing economies while jobs are drained from developed economies at home. In Beyond Sweatshops. Theodore Moran shows how the dangers associated with FDI can be avoided and the globalization process turned into a win-win outcome for workers and communities in both developed and developing countries. The effects of trade liberalization have been widely studied, yet the impact of FDI is less well known. By filling in gaps in evidence and analysis, Moran provides a foundation for understanding the effects of globalization of industry on workers, firms, and communities in home and host countries.
