Distorsiones regionales en la asignación de recursos y productividad de las manufacturas en México

  • Pedro J. Martínez Alanis

    (El Colegio de México)

Registered author(s):

    This paper decomposes the regional effects of resource misallocation on aggregate total factor productivity (TFP), as a variant of the Hsieh and Klenow (2009a) model. Using establishment level data from the 2004 Mexican Economic Census, I calculate the potential regional TFP gains in Manufacturing. The results suggest that: 1) capital misallocation is the primary source of regional misallocation in the sector; and 2) resource misallocation within regions is the most important component in manufacturing TFP gains.
