Abstract

Countries are heterogeneous both internally and externally in many ways, as is widely accepted in the policy arena. The booming literature on firm heterogeneity remains under-developed regarding the degree of firm heterogeneity in developing countries and the relationship between firm heterogeneity and development. We sketch what we know today, discuss some recent contributions, and call for further research in this area.
