Trade and Dynamic Efficiency

Author Info

Abstract

This paper studies possible impacts of international trade on domestic innovative activity. In the light of Schumpeterian ideas of dynamic efficiency, observed evidence of a positive relationship between static efficiency and trade may be undesirable. The paper examines the question by means of an econometric analysis of a huge data set of individual firms. The findings are: exporting reduces the effect of firm size on process innovations; and import competition, a larger integration in the foreign markets, and external demand support innovative activity.
