Migration of Firms, Home Bias and Economic Growth
This study analyzes the effects of government policies on the short-run and long-run movement of locally owned firms from a developed country to a less-developed country and on the output and growth rate of each country in the presence of home bias, a preference of firms and investors to operate in their home countries. The analysis uses a model which was developed for this purpose, in which growth is stemming from the increase in the number of firms. The study finds that for the less-developed country, harsh policy towards entering firms, such as taxing them in the form of requiring firms to grant partial ownership to local agents, results in better long-run economic performance, compared to free entry or subsidizing these firms, in addition to the harsh policy being less costly.
