Multimarket contact and export entry
AbstractDespite a well-developed literature on implications of multimarket contact among firms for performance in domestic markets, only recently has theoretical and empirical work turned to similar issues in international trade. In this paper, I consider the possibility that exporters meeting rivals in multiple markets will be reluctant to enter (via exports) the home markets of those rivals. Empirical results using trade data (during 2007–2010) for the fats and oils industry support this hypothesis.
