The late 1990s in Brazil are a period characterized by a large increase in foreign direct investment inflows (and outflows). This process motivates the present study about job flows in domestic and foreign firms. Although foreign firms tend to be considered more `footloose’ than domestic firms, there is very little evidence on this difference, even for developed countries. Using data from RAIS, a large matched employer-employee panel, and other data sets and a sample of foreign and domestic firms created from a propensity score matching analysis, we compare different measures of job flows across the two types of firms. We find that, if there is any difference between the two, it is the domestic firms that exhibit greater destruction and reallocation rates and lower net job creation.
