Structural Estimation of Variety Gains from Trade Integration in a Heterogeneous Firms Framework

  • Victor Rivas

In this article we develop a simple analytically solvable model of heterogeneous firms. The heterogeneous firm framework presented in this paper is particularly suitable for the structural estimation of variety gains from trade integration, as all structural equations for empirical estimations can be directly derived from the theoretical model.
