—The flow of FDI throughout the world has transformed since the 1990s. A dataset encompassing information from 1990 to 2008 was used to provide this paper’s background for the study of U.S. FDI into the EU. The countries selected for the study are France, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom. The economic results for this research paper have been obtained through various literature analyses, and then tested through multiple regression analyses. Using the results from the comprehensive model, this paper will examine the factors that affect U.S. foreign direct investments for the countries in the EU.
