  • About the Edition

    We weigh into the debate about whether rising productivity is ever a consequence rather than a cause of exporting. Exporting and investing to raise productivity are complimentary activities. For lower-productivity firms, incurring the fixed costs of such investments is justifiable only if accompanied by the larger sales volumes that come with exporting. Lower foreign tariffs will induce these firms to simultaneously export and invest in productivity. In contrast, lower foreign tariffs will induce higher-productivity firms to export without investing, as in Melitz (2003). We model this econometrically using a heterogeneous response model. Unique "plant-specific" tariff cuts serve as our instrument for the decision of Canadian plants to start exporting to the United States. We find that those lower-productivity Canadian plants that were induced by the tariff cuts to start exporting (a) increased their labor productivity, (b) engaged in more product innovation, and (c) had high adoption rates of advanced manufacturing technologies. These new exporters also increased their domestic (Canadian) market share at the expense of non-exporters, which suggests that the labor productivity gains reflect underlying gains in TFP. In contrast, we find no effects for higher-productivity plants, just as predicted by our complementarity theory.

    Plant-level Productivity in A Declining Market: The Case of Union Locals Thomas Breda*, Alex Bryson** and John Forth*** The selling of trade union membership is an interesting setting in which to estimate plant-level productivity for a number of reasons. First, although it is perhaps not immediately In declining markets it is often. A classic question in industrial organization is whether competition raises productivity and if so, through what mechanism? I discuss recent empirical evidence from both large-scale databases and specific industries which suggests that tougher competition does indeed raise productivity and one of the main mechanisms is through improving management veterans-opex.com by:

    According to these estimates, market share reallocations raised manufacturing productivity by %, while exit of the least productive plants raised productivity by an additional %. In other words, the efficiency of Canadian manufacturing improved by % on account of these veterans-opex.com by: Trade and plant level productivity gains: Role of Import Liberalisation, Technological Spillovers and Variety Growth in Indian Manufacturing Prachi Gupta & C. Veeramani September, Abstract As industries do not produce but plants do, some manufacturing plants may gain while others may lose as the result of changes in trade.

    On Productivity Dispersion and Plant Size: The Role of Market It will be shown that plant-level births and deaths and simple statistical input size increases monotonically with productivity. Plants in global markets in effect serve an infinitely large market, making demand size irrelevant to the analysis.
