An Economic Analysis of International Capital Flow
Abstract: The flows of international capital are determined by a variety of factors. Among them, there are both realistic and historical factors, both economic and non-economic factors. This paper mainly explores the causes of international capital flows from economic factors. The first part mainly discusses the related concepts and classifications of international capital flows. The second part presents the main findings at home and abroad. The third part summarizes the main influencing factors of international capital flows based on the theoretical results. Finally, taking the reality of China’s direct capital investment as an example, the paper empirically analyzes the factors affecting international capital flows.
