Which cities are attracting foreign direct investment, and what should officials do about it? (WCPN/Tony Ganzer)

If one thing is certain about a healthy economy, it is that it attracts investment. The Brookings Institution recently looked at 100 metro areas in the US to see specifically where foreign direct investment, FDI, was flowing from 1991 to 2011. It is one of the first metro-level looks at FDI. Brookings researcher Devashree Saha speaks to ideastream's Tony Ganzer.
