|Abstract:||In this study, I investigate the association between a nation's soft power and foreign direct investment flows into the country. Drawing on PIPA/Globescan data to construct country-pair-year specific measures of soft power, I test the relationship on a sample which captures investment flows between 36 countries over a 7-year period. I find a strong positive link between a country's soft power and the magnitude of the incoming foreign investment flows and my results are robust to a battery of sensitivity analyses. Overall, my findings are consistent with the interpretation that soft power helps a country attract investment flows from abroad.|
