Trade, the Vertical Production Process, and Causality

Ein Vortrag von Stephan Huber und Binh Nguyen Thanh (Universität Regensburg) im Rahmen der Seminarreihe des AB Ökonomie am IOS.
Datum: Dienstag, 13. Januar 2015
Zeit: 13.30 Uhr
Ort: IOS Regensburg, Raum 109

The integration of many countries into the EU has brought with it a remarkable disintegration of the production process, in which manufactured intermediate products from abroad are reassembled with goods produced at home. Empirical evidence on the causal interrelationship of trade in parts, components, and final goods is missing. Since now, no categorization scheme allows to distinguish trade in parts, components, and final goods. A scheme from experts of the German Engineering Association (VDMA) allows us to eliminate this disadvantage for manufacturing goods using highly disaggregated COMEXT bilateral trade data.
We find, among others, imports of parts and components to be causal for the export of final goods in many countries.
