Foreign countries are drawn to the United States’ consumer market, skilled and productive workers, and predictable regulatory environment. Favorable domestic energy resources and low energy prices also draws foreign investment in the U.S. In the first quarter of 2015, FDI increased 267% from the previous quarter, totaling $192 billion.
