Globalization and Country-Specific Service Links
AbstractThe Jones-Kierzkowski model of global fragmentation of production draws attention to the efficiency of 'service links' connecting 'production blocks' in different countries. Country-specific service links include transport and telecommunications infrastructure and the overall business climate. Mobile factors of production, most prominently foreign direct investment (FDI), can shop around for countries with the most functional and inexpensive service links along with low labor costs. Those countries with favorable business climates and well-functioning service links are able to attract FDI and other mobile inputs. We provide cross-sectional evidence that successful exporters of manufactures, notably in East Asia, have relatively favorable service links.
