Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Indeed! And just because, historically, almost all benefits of European or US FDI have flowed to the investor with a small bit flowing to local elites that we call 'corrupt' and they think of as 'traditional' does not mean that more broadly shared benefits are not possible. Especially were the foreign investors make that a requirement. We should not assume that this is categorically impossible.
