What is it?
FDI are the net inflows of investment to acquire a lasting management interest in an enterprise operating in an economy other than that of the investor or by spreading their own company's operations into a foreign land.
There are many mutual benefits that foreign companies and countries can share through FDI.
The U.S. is one of the largest recipients of FDI because of their "super-economy" status.
there are many debates as to how much control U.S. government should plance on FDI into their country.
Foreign Direct Investment
Audi AG
Headquartered in Germany
Majority owned by Volkswagen Group since 1966

These companies and thousands more have provided millions of jobs and billions of dollars in revenue and taxes to the American economy
Synergy is created when foreign and domestic firms work together
Competition fuels innovation
The world is becoming more unified, by excluding others we also exclude ourselves​​
Benefits to the U.S.
Samsung being in America not only helps create jobs and revenue, but it has helped American companies become more profitable than they would have been alone
Samsung Competition
Even though Apple is one of Samsung's most bitter competitors, they are one of Samsung's best customers.
One plant in Texas manufactures exclusively for Apple.
Google and Samsung also have a close relationship.
Without the Galaxy Platform, the Android operating system would not have reached the popularity it has received.
What do they do?
Provide convenient & reliable financial information and news around the globe.
Provide services to simplify and enhance daily activities performed by businesses and business professionals.
Publishes business and professional information through: magazines, internet, e-book, ect.
Created when Reuters Group & The Thomson Corp. merged together.
The Reuters Group was founded by Paul Reuters in London in 1851.

Ability to innovate and efficiently communicate news information impressed consumers.
Reuters continued to innovate and acquire many companies until its merger with The Thomson Corporation in 2008.
Competition- Bloomberg Inc.
Private company started by Michael J. Bloomberg (former mayor of NY) in 1981.
U.S. Company
Recently just passed Thomson Reuters in terms of market share, 33.44 and 33.05 respectively.
Offers similar services toThomson Reuters .
Able to raise $7.8 billion in revenue with 13,000 employees vs Thomson Reuters $7 billion over 25,000 employees.
Gained market share and competiveness through proper structuring and optimization and utilization employees.
FDI in the U.S.
Thomson Reuters has provided countless jobs and helped the U.S. to decrease unemployment rates.
Billions of dollars in revenue.
Top of the line innovations contributed to the industry of professional services.
Domestic Competition
Thomson Reuters & Bloomberg Inc. make up over 60 percent of the market share.
There are many other small contributors to the market.
Thomson Reuters Slip
Thomson Reuters may have tried to grow too quickly with their merger in 2008.
They merged during the 2008 U.S. Recession.
Failed to strategize their structure for 60,000 employees in over 100 countries.
Failed innovative products such as the Eikon. This hurt most during times of economic downturn.
Thomson Reuters must restructure, optimize employment numbers to revenue, and differentiate products to compete with Bloomberg Inc.
Thomson Reuters struggles to structure and optimize should not down play their contributions to U.S. economy through foreign direct investment.

They have continued to provide invaluable benefits to the economy and their situation could quickly be turned around.

Opportunity from their contributions should not be strictly governed.
