Dissecting intra-industry trade

Author

Listed:
  • Van Biesebroeck, Johannes

Abstract

We show that gradually most U.S. manufacturing trade has become intra-industry, even at the finest level of aggregation. This also holds for the E.U. and increasingly for China, but only if goods are not classified by quality; Japanese trade remains far more inter-industry.
