Taking a Page from Tyler Cowen….

The most encouraging passage I’ve read today:

Beyond investment promotion, countries have also taken bold steps in the liberalization of investment regimes, allowing for further penetration of multinationals into domestic markets.  The United Nations documented 1,035 worldwide changes in laws governing FDI [foreign direct investment] from 1991 to 1999, where 94 percent of these created a more favorable environment for multinationals [emphasis added].
