Microeconometric analysis of firm level adjustment to globalisation
Pisu, Mauro (2005) Microeconometric analysis of firm level adjustment to globalisation. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The globalisation process of national economies, through trade and foreign direct investment flows, has been one of the most important forces of economic changes in the latest decades. This thesis contributes to the growing literature on firm level adjustment to globalisation. This literature initiated a new paradigm in international trade based on heterogeneous firms. The recent availability of large firm-level data sets and new theoretical models allow to examine how heterogeneous firms react to internationalisation processes, and how their responses determine changes at more aggregate levels.
