Foreign exposure and heterogeneous performance of Italian firms: A survey of the empirical literature (1992-2014)

Valeria Gattai

No 300, Working Papers from University of Milano-Bicocca, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper surveys 67 contributions on internationalisation and performance of Italian enterprises. It covers empirical studies (including working papers), published between 1992 and 2014, taking a microeconomic perspective and analysing the potential links between firms’ global involvement and heterogeneity in economic, human capital and innovation and financial measures. The discussion is organised in an intuitive and non-technical way. At the same time, we devote particular attention to studying the different papers from many points of view, including their internationalisation measures, performance indicators, empirical approach, causality and results.
