题目: What You Import Matters: Capital versus Intermediate Goods

摘要: International sourcing is a strong driving force for firm productivity growth. In this paper, we compare the distinct productivity effects of importing capital and intermediate inputs. Using a large dataset of Chinese manufacturing firms, we show that although accounting for only one-sixths of the total input imports, capital imports contribute more than 50% of the productivity gains from international sourcing. While both types of imports exert immediate effects on productivity, capital imports also have strong dynamic productivity and R&D-inducing effects. We find that 25% of the productivity gains from capital imports are due to the dynamic effects. The findings of this paper bear clear implications for the structure of tariff liberalizations.
