Identifying the dispersion of the Pareto productivity distribution in international trade
Economics Letters, 2017, vol. 161, issue C, 108-111
Most of the heterogeneous firm studies use the Pareto distribution of productivity. This paper identifies the Pareto parameter by relying on guidance from monopolistic competition models. The application to Korean export industries reports that the dispersion of productivity varies across industries.
