Since the value of log checks/polcon is zero in about 40 percent of the cases, we should also pay attention to the constitutive terms of independent variables. The significant negative coefficient on regulatory quality and positive coefficient on short-�term debts suggest that in political systems where institutional checks are absent or extremely weak, foreign investors would prefer low regulatory quality and a high level of short-�term debts.
