  • Godfrey Yeung investigates the causes and socio-economic effects of foreign direct investment in the Dongguan municipality of southern China during the 1990s. As the first comprehensive research based on primary quantitative and qualitative data undertaken in Dongguan, it illustrates that the inflow of foreign capital has both 'desirable' and undesirable' socio-economic effects. Yeung proposes a new 'dynamic symbiosis' paradigm of foreign direct investment in order the illuminate the complex political and socio-economic relationships of the area.
