Domestic rivalry and export performance: theory and evidence from international airline markets

Joseph Clougherty () and Anming Zhang

Canadian Journal of Economics, 2009, vol. 42, issue 2, 440-468

Abstract: The much studied relationship between domestic rivalry and export performance consists of those supporting a national-champion rationale, and those supporting a rivalry rationale. While the empirical literature generally supports the positive effects of domestic rivalry, the national-champion rationale actually rests on firmer theoretical ground. We address this inconsistency by providing a theoretical framework that illustrates three paths via which domestic rivalry translates into enhanced international exports. Furthermore, empirical tests on the world airline industry elicit the existence of one particular path - an enhanced firm performance effect - that connects domestic rivalry with improved international exports.
