Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Most industrialised economies rely increasingly on knowledge-based activities. The processes of globalisation and European integration have simultaneously encouraged the growth of foreign direct investment, with multinational companies helping to transmit firm-specific technologies and ideas across national borders. Governments and local development agencies are engaged in fierce competition to attract inward investment in the belief that such investments offer wider benefits for host locations. This chapter presents a regional CGE analysis of the demand and 'efficiency spillover' effects of foreign direct investment.
