Economists emphasize two channels through which import liberalization affects productivity, one operating between and the other within firms. According to the former, import competition triggers market share reallocations between domestic firms with different technological capabilities (selection). At the same time, imports can also improve firms' .   If the scope for technological learning is limited, the selection effect dominates and imports lead to lower productivity. If, however, imports are relatively technology-intensive, imports also generate learning that can on net raise domestic productivity. Moreover, there is somewhat less selection when the typical domestic firm is by:

Estimating the Productivity Selection and Technology Spillover Effects of Imports. By Ram C. Acharya and Wolfgang Keller. Abstract. In the wake of falling trade costs, two central consequences in the importing economy are, first, that stronger competition through increased imports can lead to market share reallocations among domestic firms Author: Ram C. Acharya and Wolfgang Keller. At the same time, imports can also improve firms' technologies through learning externalities (spillovers). We present evidence for a sample of industrialized countries over the period to First, in the long run, import liberalization lowers productivity in domestic industries through : Ram C.

Lööf and Anderson () incorporate in the analysis the distribution of imports across different origin countries, finding that imports from the most knowledge intensive economies (the G7 countries) have a stronger impact on. of channels (1) and (2). Note that in a traditional production function where the factors are capital, labor and materials, this term would be subsumed into the firm’s total factor productivity. The main difficulty with estimating this parameter is that imports are endoge- nous to unobserved Size: KB.
