Does foreign ownership Does foreign ownership of American businesses pose a threat to the United States (like the abortive attempt by CNOOC, a Chinese company, to purchase Unocal during the summer of 2005)? This important new book examines foreign direct investment (FDI) in the United States, the national security concerns associated with this investment, and treatment of these concerns under US policy. It asks whether the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States (CFIUS) process can be improved and answers in the affirmative. The book starts by looking at the review process for foreign takeovers of US fifi rms (including a historical review), looks at the economic and political impact on the United States of foreign direct investment, takes a detailed look at issues relating to FDI posed by the rise of China as an economic and geopolitical power and finally suggests some changes to the Exon-Florio process. Includes a section on the Dubai Ports World controversy.

Rating: 5

Recent current events such as Dubai Ports World's recent bid to acquire US port operations Chinese firm CNOOC's attempt to buy US energy firm Unocal have brought the hot-button issue of foreign direct investment to the media spotlight. US National Security And Foreign Direct Investment is a sober examination of how best to balance business interests with national security concerns. Co-authors Edward M. Graham (Adjunct Professor, Columbia University) and international trade expert and professional consultant David M. Marchick reveal that too many proposed reforms to quell fears about foreign investment only restrict the US economy without benefiting national security. US National Security And Foreign Direct Investment proffers alternatives to strengthen the current interagency review of proposed foreign investment deals, and improve the process for reporting to Congress. An in-depth section on the Exon-Florio Amendment in the post-September 11th environment adds a detailed touch to this serious-minded review of logical, expert solutions to complex international problems.
