The paper covers the issue of foreign direct investment (or FDI). Starting with a brief overview of FDI in the principal groups of countries it further focuses on factors that affect FDI in various countries. Two cases are covered in more detail, viz. FDI in the U.S. and in Poland. The main conclusion is that FDI benefits both its providers, who are predominantly the multinational corporations (or MNCs), and the recipients in different countries regardless of whether the latter are developed economies, like the U.S., or the lesser developed nations.
