Markups from Inventory Data and Export Intensity

No 2016:9, Working Paper Series from Uppsala University, Department of Economics

Abstract: In this paper we propose a novel method for the price-cost markup estimation and study the relationship between export intensity and the markup. We impose much less restrictive identifying assumptions on technology and adjustment frictions compared to previous studies and use Swedish firm-level inventory data on finished goods of own production to measure the markup. Furthermore, as we are using data on a quarterly frequency, we are able to provide novel results on the dynamic adjustment of the markup related to changes in export intensity.
