As many of you might not know, American FDI has been increasing at high rates. Dangerous rates. Investors have been scaling back on investments, which contradicts other growth factors in the economy. The UN warns of global market collapses if FDI doesn't increase.

Following the 18% decrease in 2012, it seems the FDI rate is growing again, which is a good sign [1]. It made me concerned about our international trade stability though. We have lots of stocks tied up into places that are becoming increasingly less profitable, while other nations have invested stocks in new markets untouched by the US. [2]

The Department of Commerce and the International Trade Administration have decided to change course, after the SelectUSA summit, it was shown that the majority of US entrepreneurs want to invest in these new markets and scale back on our old ones, but doing so is very risky [3]. Anyways, can anyone make sense of this? I don't necessarily have the answer, so I'm looking for some new opinions.

If foreign direct investment is decreasing, it could be related to political and social crises...

But yeah, that's definitely dangerous for us. That could lead to a collapse if it went on long enough without positive change.
