Export-Magnification Effect of Offshoring by Jörn Kleinert( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we argue that the surge in world trade over the two decades preceding the global downturn of 2008-09 can be partly explained by the export-magnification effect of offshoring. In a general equilibrium model with heterogeneous firms we show analytically that a fall in variable offshoring costs boosts trade in differentiated final goods through an intra-industry reallocation of resources towards the more productive firms. More specifically, lower barriers to offshoring reduce the input costs of incumbent offshoring firms and allow more firms to source cheap foreign intermediates, which improves firm-level price competitiveness. This, in turn, translates into higher export quantities of incumbent exporters (intensive margin) and entry of new exporters (extensive margin), thereby fostering trade in final goods. -- Offshoring ; trade ; multinational firms
Globalization of the world economy : what happened in 1985? by Jörn Kleinert( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper brings forward a three-country model to analyze the internationalization process in the age of globalization. It is shown that investment of one company increases not only the incentive to invest in another country for every national competitor but for third country's companies as well. That results from the adjustment of the host country's companies which react to their shrinking market share by reducing output and raising the price of their goods. Some host country's companies exit the market. The results are used to explain the surge of foreign direct investment since the mid-1980s

Causes and consequences of merger waves by Jörn Kleinert( Book )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents some ideas about determinants of merger waves and some evidence on their effect on profitability and employment. A brief survey of previous merger waves and an analysis of the recent one give support to the hypothesis that sectoral shocks are at the root of merger waves. Deregulation and globalization are identified as the shocks responsible for the latest wave. The impact of merger activities on profitability and employment growth are studied by using the DOME database which has been built up at the Kiel Institute of World Economics. On average, performance of merging and non-merging firms do not differ significantly. In smaller, more homogenous sub-samples, however, substantial sectoral differences are found. The most important determinant of the success of mergers is the size of the target unit
Growing trade in intermediate goods : outsourcing, global sourcing or increasing importance of MNE networks? by Jörn Kleinert( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trade in intermediate goods as one possible link between rising trade and foreign direct investment is examined. To explain growing intermediate goods trade, three hypotheses are brought forward: outsourcing, global sourcing and the increasing importance of MNE networks. These hypotheses are tested by employing a cross-section framework, which uses OECD input-output table data, and an analysis, which relies on German time-series data. Increasing importance of MNE networks is found to be a reason of growing trade in intermediate goods in the cross-section and the time-series framework. The evidence for outsourcing and global sourcing is found to be much weaker

A structural model of export versus affiliates production( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We derive and estimate an econometric model of export versus foreign production using firm-level data on foreign activities of German multinationals. Proximity-concentration theory which we derive our model from shows that firms face a trade-off between concentrating their production at home to save on plant set-up costs and producing abroad to save on distance costs. Firms facing this trade-off choose between export and foreign production according to their expected profits. The model is brought to the data using a pooled-probit analysis over the period 1996-1999. We find support for the proximity-concentration trade-off. In particular, market size and distance affect positively the probability of foreign production whereas fixed costs have a negative impact on the decision to engage in FDI

The few leading the many : foreign affiliates and business cycle comovement by Jörn Kleinert( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper uses micro-data on balance sheets, trade, and the nationality of ownership of firms in France to investigate the effect of foreign multinationals on business cycle comovement. We first show that foreign affiliates, which represent a tiny fraction of all firms, are responsible for a high share of employment, value added, and trade both at the national and at the regional levels. We also show that the distribution of foreign affiliates across French regions differs with the nationality of the parent. We then show that foreign affiliates increase the comovement of activities between their region of location and their country of ownership. We also find that intra-firm trade in intermediate inputs is a significant channel of influence of business cycle comovement. These findings suggest that the international transmission of shocks is partly due to linkages between affiliates and their foreign parents, and that a few multinational companies drive a non-negligible part of business cycle comovement
Cross-border and foreign-affiliate sales of services : evidence from German micro-data( )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We merge German balance-of-payments and foreign-affiliate-trade statistics to obtain data about trade in commercial services at the firm level. We use these data to study export market participation and the choice of export mode: cross-border versus foreign affiliate sales. We find that for firms in our sample productivity is both a statistically significant and economically important determinant of the export participation and export mode choice. We also identify the role of industry- and country-specific determinants. -- international trade ; trade in services ; supply modes ; commercial presence foreign direct investment ; multinational enterprises ; firm heterogeneity
Trade and the internationalization of production by Jörn Kleinert( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whereas many empirical studies show that the internationalization of production is driven by falling distance costs, theoretical models of the endogenous emergence of multinational enterprises predict the opposite. This paper argues that this dichotomy can be resolved if the production process is modeled more realistically by taking the use of intermediate goods into account. The argument is based on a two-country general equilibrium model set up to study companies' internationalization strategies. Companies use specific intermediate goods in their production and can choose between exports and foreign production. In choosing between these alternatives, they face a trade-off between higher variable distance costs when exporting and additional fixed costs when producing abroad. With falling distance costs, exports increase. Furthermore, the profitability of foreign production increases relative to the profitability of exports if the share of intermediate goods used is not too small. With falling distance costs, it might therefore pay for a company to become a multinational enterprise
