Empresas Estrangeiras e Capital Humano nos Serviços Intensivos em Conhecimento
AbstractThe effect of foreign firms on host economies may occur through labour market, leading to the development of human capital. This paper investigates whether foreign firms contributed in a positive way to the development of human capital, looking in detail at the knowledge intensive services in Portugal. The study is based on panel data at the firm level for the period 2000-2006 using the Quadros de Pessoal dataset. The results show that firms with foreign capital have higher human capital intensity than domestic firms.
