Abstract

This research paper proposes a new model to analyze the mobility of investment flows under intra-states level, domestic level, intra-regional level and global level. This new model is entitled "The Multi-level Investment Flows Monitoring Model (MIF-Model)". The MIF-model will introduce five new indicators are: Intra-states Direct Investment (ISDI), Domestic Direct Investment (DDI), Intra-regional Direct Investment (IDI) (Ruiz, 2005), Total Investment Formation (TIF) and Investment Reception Performance (IRP). These indicators are built to analyze the mobility of investment flows in any country or region from a multi-level perspective through time and space.

Keywords: Econographicology, Investment, International trade, Intra-states Direct Investment (ISDI), Intra-regional Direct Investment (IDI), Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Economic Regional Integration
