Abstract

We present a case study—the U.S. death care industry—that largely violates the assumptions of foreign direction investment (FDI) theory. Based on this anomaly, we develop
several questions to help us understand whether this is a unique case, whether other anomalies may also exist, and what this might mean for FDI theory. We hope to generate discussion to help us answer these questions.
