Abstract

The impacts of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) on host countries have been highly debated in the literature. This study contributes to this debate by focusing on the impacts of FDI on economic growth, carbon emission, and social security spending. Utilizing the panel data of 120 countries during 2006-2009, this study found that FDI plays a pivotal role in fostering economic growth of the host countries and it has a significant effect on the addition of carbon emission. However, the initiative to develop quality of life is not a key element yet in FDI.
