Joachim Wagner ()

No 42, Working Paper Series in Economics from University of Lüneburg, Institute of Economics

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.
