The article discusses the significance of foreign direct investment (FDI) or enterprise capital in the economic growth of emerging markets. It is stated that emerging-market economies has long been considered dependent on trade, direct and portfolio investment and foreign aid. The author reveals that FDI in emerging-market economies has tripled since 2001, and wherever it has gone, it has spurred economic growth. He added that as the cases of the formerly socialist economies of Russia, China, and India, showed enterprise capital appears to be far more effective in generating growth in developing countries than foreign aid, loans from multinational development agencies, or national economic-development efforts.
