Export growth and firm survival

Julian Emami Namini, Giovanni Facchini () and Ricardo López

Economics Letters, 2013, vol. 120, issue 3, 481-486

Abstract: This paper uses plant-level data from Chile to show that an increase in sector-wide exports decreases the survival probability of exporters, but not that of non-exporters. We argue that this result can be explained by the fact that exporters and non-exporters use factors of production in different intensities.
