Productivity and spatial proximity: evidence from the Italian food industry
International Review of Applied Economics, 2020, vol. 34, issue 3, 327-341
The aim of this paper is to examine the existence of productivity spillovers across firms in the Italian manufacturing food industry. To this end, using a sample of Italian food firms over the period 2008–2015, first the total factor productivity (TFP) is computed by considering the Levinson-Petrin approach and then a spatial econometric model is employed. Results show evidence of productivity spillovers across firms due to spatial proximity.
