Indonesia, home to more than 3.5 million micro and small enterprises (MSEs) in the manufacturing industry, is struggling to provide reliable electricity supply in some regions. Little is known about how the power blackouts affect MSE performance. This paper estimates the impact of electricity blackouts on the productivity of Indonesia’s MSEs. A pseudo-panel dataset covering the period 2004–2015 is employed.
