The main objectives of the study are: to develop a time series database of direct investment flows and stocks for the APEC region over the period 1980-92; to analyse the growth dynamism of APEC countries; to examine the role of trade and direct investment in APEC economies; to investigate trends in intra-regional investment linkages between Asia APEC and non-Asia APEC countries as well as within these two sub-groups, and to examine investment linkages with non-APEC countries; to analyse the linkages between APEC trade and investment; and; to examine the implications of direct investment-led economic integration for market framework laws and policies

10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
The recent upsurge of interest in corporate governance issues in Canada and other industrial countries is a reflection of the recognition of the rising importance of corporate governance for strong economic performance of firms and nations. The corporate governance debate in Canada and other countries to date, however, has mainly concentrated on the role of the board of directors in ensuring shareholders' interests and the minimization of agency costs. This document specifically looks at governance structure, corporate decision-making and firm performance in North America. Topics covered are: the governance systems in Canada and the United States; analytical framework; and, empirical results

Cracking Canada's productivity conundrum by P. Someshwar Rao( file )
5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
In order to sustain economic growth Canada will need to boost productivity and innovation, and federal policies to foster a more competitive business environment will be just as important as directly supporting innovation for achieving this goal. In his broad review of the determinants of productivity growth Rao finds that there are three main challenges in Canada. First, while innovation and the adoption of technologies are by far the most important direct drivers of productivity, Canada remains a laggard compared with other industrialized nations in this area, due to insufficient investment in research and development (R & D) and the equipment that embodies new technologies. A second important factor is the relatively large number of small and medium-sized enterprises in Canada. Because of their small size, these firms are unable to benefit from production techniques that require a certain minimum scale to be profitable, hampering their ability to grow. Finally, competition and firm dynamics within industries are critically important for spurring innovation and productivity.--Document
What explains the Canada-U.S. TFP gap? by P. Someshwar Rao( Book )

Foreign direct investment trends : a Canadian perspective by Ram C Acharya( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Foreign direct investment (FDI) and other activities of multinational companies have increased in the 1990s and early 21st century all over the world. Available research suggests that the long term economic benefits from FDI outweigh possible short term economic adjustment difficulties in host countries, provided they have a competitive business climate and flexible and dynamic factor and product markets. The main objective of this report is to review global and Canadian trends in FDI and to identify the major factors that shape these trends, such as rules and changing economic environments. An additional focus is on the hollowing-out debate and describing the current state of play in Canada regarding the trends. The final part of the paper contains a review of the economic impacts from FDI to host economics, and then summary conclusions on the topics.--Includes text from document
What explains the Canada-U.S. capital intensity gap? by P. Someshwar Rao( Book )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Canada's per-capita gross domestic product (GDP) was about 15 percent below the U.S. level in 2005 and the gap widened slightly in the years that followed. The Canada-U.S. labour productivity level gap, according to many recent studies, accounted for almost the entire real income gap between the two countries. The gap in capital-labour ratio explained directly about 10 percent of the business sector labour productivity gap in 2004. The remaining 90 percent of the labour productivity gap was due to the gap in total factor productivity (TFP). The objective of this paper, using panel data on 41 industries, is to analyze the factors accounting for the Canada-U.S. TFP gap in the business sector.--Document
