The Causal Effects of Exports on Firm Size and Labor Productivity: First Evidence From a Matching Approach

Joachim Wagner ()

No 26189, Discussion Paper Series from Hamburg Institute of International Economics

Abstract: This paper uses a large plant level panel data set from Germany and a matching approach to look for causal effects of starting to export on plant performance. We find positive effects on growth of employment, labor productivity, and wages. Dieses Diskussionspapier untersucht, welche Effekte der Exportstart auf die Performance von Betrieben hat. Es legt einen Matching-Ansatz zugrunde. Datenbasis ist ein großes deutsches Betriebspanel. Es werden positive Auswirkungen des Exportstarts auf Beschäftigung, Arbeitsproduktivität und Löhne nachgewiesen.
