perfect capital mobility

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A situation when capital is able to move without cost between countries. If this occurred, the risk-adjusted returns to capital, net of tax, would be equal in all countries. Perfect capital mobility is prevented partly by controls on capital movements, and partly by lack of information about foreign countries, which makes the risks of investment or lending abroad appear greater than those for home country activities.
