Abstract: We study how multinational companies transmit negative shocks from their subsidiaries located in crisis countries to subsidiaries in non-crisis countries. We find that investment is 18% lower in non-crisis subsidiaries of these parents relative to the same-industry, same-country subsidiaries of parents that are headquartered in the same parent country but do not have a subsidiary in a crisis country. Employment growth rate in the affected subsidiaries is zero or negative while it is 1.4% in the subsidiaries of unaffected parents. The aggregate industry-level sales and employment are also negatively impacted in countries of the affected subsidiaries.
