Capital strike


Capital strike

Capital strike refers to the withholding of new investment in an economy. A capital strike most often occurs where governments pursue policies that investors consider "unfriendly" or "inflexible."

In response, governments typically act to appease investors; however, governments committed to endogenous development (recently, in Latin America) occasionally refuse to capitulate and instead pursue economic development plans which utilize other resources.
