Transactions Between Large Foreign-Owned Domestic Corporations and
Related Foreign Persons, 2008

by Isaac J. Goodwin

The total value of nonloan transactions between large foreign-owned domestic corporations and related foreign parties amounted to $1.187 trillion, a 36-percent decrease from the 2006 study’s record $1.86 trillion. While this represents a significant decline, the 2008 total is still higher than all studies prior to 2006. Sales and purchases of stock in trade represent the bulk of the total value of nonloan transactions (55.9 percent and 73.6 percent, respectively), which is consistent with prior years.
