Abstract: This paper employs a more robust econometric methodology to investigate the foreign direct investment phenomenon, expand the data horizon from 2004-2013 to 1996-2016, and generate more solid research outcomes on the determinants of foreign direct investments (FDIs) in 32 developed countries. Specifically, this paper uses both static and dynamic estimation models to investigate the determinants of foreign direct investments in developed countries.

Keywords: foreign direct investment; FDI; panel data; static panel estimation models; dynamic panel estimation models; pooled OLS estimation.
