We analyze the impact on growth of cross-border mergers and acquisition (M&A) sales. Using the GMM methodology we find that most economies benefit from financial service M&A sales. However, some type of capital flows may hurt growth. In some cases M&A sales in manufacturing and the primary sector may lead to deindustrialization in manufacturing industry and/or services industries.
