In my research on FDI - how developmental policies define the capital growth opportunities of a country - came across this interesting index on 'confidence' towards FDI. The BRICS still reign supremely confused - they still convey a willingness to recover from inflationary recession - while in ground reality their policy measures are anything closer to that ! According to AT Kearney who created this index "The 2012 A.T. Kearney FDI Confidence Index examines future prospects for FDI flows as the world seeks to recover from the global recession and continued economic uncertainty in Europe and the United States. The Index, which first appeared in 1998, assesses the impact of political, economic, and regulatory changes on the FDI intentions and preferences of the leaders of top companies around the world."
Wont you be surprised if this is the case that prevails in 2013 ? Are you confident in this confidence ??? How will this transpire as enclave economies too now fuel the FDI growth patterns ?
