dc.description.abstractEste estudio examina el efecto de la inversión extranjera directa y la formación de capital en la productividad total de los factores del país utilizando el modelo de regresión de mínimos cuadrados ordinarios y análisis de data de panel para el periodo anual de 1950-2010. Se analiza si estos efectos varían entre un país desarrollado y un país en desarrollo, para este análisis Estados Unidos y Méjico, respectivamente. La literatura existente demuestra que, individualmente, la inversión extranjera directa y la formación de capital parecen tener un efecto positivo en la productividad total de un país. Los resultados del modelo de regresión indican que la inversión extranjera directa no tiene un efecto significativo en la productividad total de Méjico, más sin embargo, tiene un efecto negativo y significativo en Estados Unidos. Por el contrario, la formación de capital sí parece tener un efecto significativo en la productividad de ambos países.
dc.description.abstractThis study examines the effect of Foreign Direct Investment and Capital Formation on the country’s Total Factor Productivity using Ordinary Least Square regression model and panel data analysis for the period of 1950-2010. This study analyzed if these effects vary from a developed to a developing country, for this analysis, United States and Mexico, respectively. Existent literature shows that when studied individually Foreign Direct Investment and capital formation do have a positive effect on a country’s total productivity. Results from the regression model concluded that Foreign Direct Investment does not have a significant effect on México’s total productivity, while it seemed to have a negative and significant effect on US productivity.. Furthermore, Capital Formation does seem to have a significant effect on both country’s productivity.
