Tuesday, 27 April, 2021 - 14:00 to 15:30

We investigate the effect of the rise in product market competition, measured by the increase in Chinese exports to Mexico and the US on the productivity of Mexican plants between 1994 and 2007. We use detailed panel data on Mexican manufacturers matched with trade data at the product level. Using quantity-based estimates of plant-level productivity, we identify the effect of increased foreign competition on Mexican plants.
