Dr. David Cushman, professor and chair of Westminster College's Department of Economics and Business, is co-author of "Exchange Rate Regimes and FDI Flows to Developing Countries" recently published in the Review of International Economics.
Co-written with Andrew Abbott of the University of Hull (England) and Glauco De Vita of Oxford Brookes University (England), the paper presents evidence that developing countries that adopt a fixed exchange rate attract more investment from other countries than do developing countries with a flexible exchange rate. Consequently, they may grow faster. The work was the result of Cushman's non-resident visiting position at Oxford Brookes University.
Cushman, who holds the Captain William McKee Chair of Economics and Business, has been with Westminster since 2005. He earned an undergraduate degree from Stetson University and master's degree and Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University.
