What you export matters

Ricardo Hausmann (), Jason Hwang and Dani Rodrik ()

Journal of Economic Growth, 2007, vol. 12, issue 1, 1-25

Abstract: When local cost discovery generates knowledge spillovers, specialization patterns become partly indeterminate and the mix of goods that a country produces may have important implications for economic growth. We demonstrate this proposition formally and adduce some empirical support for it. We construct an index of the “income level of a country’s exports,” document its properties, and show that it predicts subsequent economic growth. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007
