题目: Can Foreign Direct Investment Increase Productivity of Domestic Firms? Identifying FDI Spillovers from Borders of Chinese Dialect Zones    

摘要: Many developing countries adopt policies to attract foreign direct investment (FDI), hoping multinational firms yield knowledge spillovers and raise productivity of domestic firms. This study identifies positive productivity spillovers from FDI, employing discontinuous increases in investment from Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan (HMT) to mainland China at the geographical borders of Chinese linguistic dialect zones. Using a spatial regression discontinuity design, I find that HMT investment in a location inside a region that speaks the same dialect as HMT is 5-7 percentage points (20 percent) higher than a location just outside. Using this discontinuous increase in HMT investment at the dialect borders as exogenous variation, I find positive local horizontal productivity spillovers to domestic firms, especially in industries where HMT firms are more productive. A 1 percentage point increase in the HMT firm share raises the productivity of domestic firms in the same location and industry by 1 to 2 percent.
