Title Import Competition, Productivity and Restructuring in UK Manufacturing
Author Chiara Criscuolo, Jonathan Haskel and Ralf Martin
Year 2004
Abstract We discuss the literature on the importance of entry and exit for raising productivity growth. Using micro data for the UK for a period from 1980 to 2000, we find that the share of productivity growth accounted for by entry and exit has increased considerably: from around 25% in the 1980s to around 50% in the 1990s. We then
ask to what extend increased globalisation – measured as sectoral import penetration
– might have explained this and find effects from both globalisation and ICT.
