The Future of Logistics Real Estate in Europe - BCI Global
Demand for logistics real estate (warehouses, distribution centers) will the next 3 year continue to grow, fueled by moderate economic growth and acceleration of e-commerce sales. This means for tenants less choice between buildings to be leased or land plots to be acquired, as vacancies all over Europe are decreasing and logistics hotspots struggle with supply of new logistics parks.

Glass Half Full: The 2017 Foreign Direct Investment Confidence Index - A.T. Kearney
The United States tops the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) Confidence Index for the fifth year in a row. This streak ties with the longest prior run that the United States had at the top of the Index (ending in 2001), and likely reflects the enduring attractiveness of the US market in terms of sheer size and a relatively open regulatory environment for foreign investment. Investors may also be motivated by protectionist rhetoric, as FDI would give them a local footprint in the world’s largest economy. In addition, investors have a very bullish outlook for the North American economy—with the United States and Canada the two domestic economies about which investors are most optimistic this year compared with last year. It is thus no surprise that Canada rounds out the top five in this year’s Index.

What Canada needs for a prosperous innovation economy - The Globe and Mail
So far, so good. Pundits have lined up to explain how we need to strengthen intellectual property rights, enlarge the pool of risk financing, expand accelerators and incubators and push for better collaboration with industry and between universities.

Here’s the problem: These approaches completely miss the key difference between a national innovation policy and economic growth policy. This is a problem because Canada urgently needs proper innovation policy in order to maintain its prosperity.

2014 International Tax Competitiveness Index - Tax Foundation
The Tax Foundation’s International Tax Competitiveness Index (ITCI) measures the degree to which the 34 OECD countries’ tax systems promote competitiveness through low tax burdens on business investment and neutrality through a well-structured tax code. The ITCI considers more than forty variables across five categories: Corporate Taxes, Consumption Taxes, Property Taxes, Individual Taxes, and International Tax Rules.

The ITCI finds that the United States has the 32nd most competitive tax system out of the 34 OECD member countries.

Economists have long argued that better infrastructure — roads and highways, bridges and ports, tunnels and dams — results in greater jobs growth and business investment.3 So as government finances improve, why aren’t we seeing infrastructure spending return?

Global Location Trends 2013 Annual Report - IBM Institute for Business Value
The global landscape for foreign direct investment is changing considerably, as companies are adapting their global footprints to rapidly changing operating conditions and new opportunities around the world. As a result, we are witnessing a marked reconfiguration of where foreign direct investment is going. While the United States is seeing greater near-shoring, China is experiencing a transformation of its role in the global economy, and other emerging economies are positioning themselves as new key investment destinations. In this context, companies need to embrace strategic footprint planning and structure their global operations into agile and integrated enterprises that are able to adapt to changing conditions and opportunities across the world.
