This is our third article already in the previously promised series to focus on FDI & DIA, as unitary fluid substance world owned, and so flows and stocks and country actors carrying these, but respective amounts unevenly distribute on these country actors. Once more, our approach on FDI won’t change any of its previous paradigm, coordinates and criteria considered, i.e dynamics mean individual country versus world speed difference along the 1994-2015 interval, in which the 1994 stocks accumulate FDI&DIA flows since 1990, and top countries range up to an important majority of stocks amounts in the total and so a relatively stable percentage, on the one hand, and down to 0.2% on FDI/inflows and to 0.1% of the same total world stocks on DIA/outflows, on the other. This time we will stay in Europe to focus on two so-called ‘sub-regions’ of this continent with interesting FDI-DIA contents, that will then interestingly aggregate for something that might equally become a territory more economically homogeneous than previously thought.
