Kay Moxon, Department of Economics at Tonbridge School, considers the impact of British companies becoming foreign-owned.

Summary of Key Points:

  • A large number of UK firms have been taken over by foreigners. Investment by UK firms overseas is less substantial.
  • Foreign investment enhances competitive pressure and provides scope for higher rates of economic activity and employment than could be achieved from domestic levels of savings.
  • The net effect of foreign investment on the UK balance of payments is uncertain.
  • Many of the concerns expressed about foreign takeovers do not appear to be supported by available evidence.
  • Many countries actively protect their industries from foreign takeovers.
