Are newly exporting firms more innovative? Findings from matched Spanish innovators

Aoife Hanley and Joaquín Monreal Pérez

Economics Letters, 2012, vol. 116, issue 2, 217-220

Abstract: The prevalence of Internet-based sales was highlighted by the World Bank (Ferro, 2011) associating state-of-art technology with exporters. We use propensity score kernel matching with difference-in-differences to reveal export selection and evidence of ‘technology upgrading’ through higher exporter innovation rates.
