Abstract

The goal of improving terms of purchase of technology imports is a sensible one. However, in practice, not only can the local technology-receiving company's objectives be distinct from national economic objectives,, but the latter are often themselves mutually incompatible. The last decade saw much legislation and regulation introduced in LDCs to guide the acceptability of foreign investment or licensing proposals. The paper argues, from theory and examples, that across-the-board rules are, however, impracticable.-B.W.Beeley
