IO FOR EXPORT(S)
J. Peter Neary () and
No 868, Economics Series Working Papers from University of Oxford, Department of Economics
We provide an overview and synthesis of recent work on models of monopolistic competition with heterogeneous firms in international trade, paying particular attenÂ¬tion to pass-through, selection effects, competition effects, and matching endogenous with exogenous distributions. A recurring theme is that CES preferences are extremely convenient for deriving analytic results, but also extremely restrictive in their theoret-ical and empirical implications. We introduce the class of â€œconstant-response demand functionsâ€ to describe some related families of demand functions that provide a unifying principle for much recent work that explores alternatives to CES demands.
