Globalisation and economic development, the labor market effects of globalisation, the economies of East Asia.
Some of the questions that Fredrik Sjöholm tries to answer with his research:
- How does globalization affect economic growth and development?
- How does globalization affect employment and wages?
- Will Asia come to dominate the world economy in the future?
Foreign Direct Investment in Southeast Asia
The main focus of Fredrik Sjöholm's research is on the economic impacts of globalization, including a broad range of aspects in international trade and investments.
A common factor in much of this work is a focus on the role of multinational companies, and on home and host country effects of foreign direct investments. Special attention is also given to economic effects of the increased importance of East Asia in general, and of China in particular, as a host of multinational companies.
