Why more West than East German firms export

Joachim Wagner ()

No 2007-027, Jena Economic Research Papers from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena

Abstract: Using unique new data and a recently introduced non-linear decomposition technique this paper shows that the huge difference in the propensity to export between West and East German plants is to a large part due to differences in firm size and human capital intensity.
