Productivity Spillovers and the Entry of Foreign-Owned Firms: The Case of Japanese Manufacturing Firms
This paper shows that in the short run an increase in foreign firms' industry share lowers the TFP growth of Japanese firms as a result of the decrease in market power. However, in the long run, the entry of foreign-owned firms has a positive effect on the productivity of local firms as a result of technology spillovers. In addition, the results suggest that foreign firms exert competitive pressure that forces Japanese firms with a high level of technological capabilities raise their productivity growth.
