  • The dissertation studies firms and technology in International Trade using data from India. In the first paper, I examine the relationship between exports and productivity. I control for firm variation in prices and retrieve measures of firm productivity. I compute within firm changes in firm productivity from entering into export markets and decompose gains to productivity from export market entry into two channels – the imports of intermediate inputs and investment in R & D. In the second paper (with Ivan Kandilov and Asli Leblebicioglu), we examine the impact of trade liberalization on investment in imported capital goods. We distinguish between tariffs on capital goods, intermediate inputs and final goods and examine three channels through which reduction in tariffs can impact investment in imported capital goods.
