Abstract: This study uses wage premiums to explore knowledge spillovers through labour mobility from multinational companies (MNCs) to domestic firms in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector in Costa Rica. To this end, the authors use a novel employer-employee matched database for 2001–2012 and various fixed-effects models.
