Ideas:
“  The literature on the institutions-FDI nexus has treated the influence of institutions independently of each other. To address this shortcoming empirically, we use PCA. PCA is used to extract correlated institutional “clusters”. The influence of institutional clusters on FDI flows is examined empirically in this paper. PCA extracts three institutional clusters: quality of public administration, social cohesion, and stability and property rights protection. We use an empirical model, which is based on Dunning’s (1981) location advantage hypothesis to examine the influence of those clusters on the competition to attract FDI flows. We adopt a least squares estimation methodology to account for both country and time effects. Empirical evidence shows that the three clusters have a positive influence on the share of world FDI flows. These results have important policy implications.  ”
