Tango with the Dragon: Employment Effects of Trade Integration with China. The Case of Argentina
AbstractThis paper estimates the effects of trade integration between China and Mercosur on employment. The case of Argentina, in particular, is investigated. Highly disaggregated data at the industry level is used for the first time to estimate labor demand elasticities in order to estimate the effects of trade with China on the employment rate. According to this, trade with China did not have a significant effect on industrial employment, even in a period of swift trade liberalization like the nineties.
