ABSTRACT
Direct foreign investment is desired for its technology and ability to bring about intertemporal reallocation of resources. However, it also redistributes income from nationals to foreigners. Where this redistribution is considered to exceed the benefits of direct foreign investment, foreign-owned firms will be treated different from locally-owned firms.
