Abstract

The goal of this paper is to assess the impact of the euro on the relationship between firm size and exports. We employ previous new-new trade theory models to derive some hypotheses that are tested using a representative sample of Spanish manufacturing firms. The results indicate that the introduction of the euro has remarkably weakened the role of firm size in the decision to export to the Eurozone. What is more, the change in the proportion of exports to the Eurozone is negatively related to firm size. Our results suggest that the euro has reduced the threshold size in order to export to Eurozone countries. Copyright 2011 Oxford University Press 2010 All rights reserved, Oxford University Press.
