讲座题目:  Who Pays for Markups in a Global Economy? The Unequal Impacts of International Rent-Shifting

讲座摘要: Trade openness over the past decades has prompted tremendous production relocation across international borders and industries. These developments, we argue, have triggered a systematic transfer of markup rents and welfare from low- to high-income nations. We establish this claim by providing semi-parametric formulas for the welfare cost of markups in open economies. Our formulas indicate that trade can magnify the incidence of markups on individual countries by (1) increasing markup dispersion relative to autarky or (2) shifting markup rents from one country to another (rent-shifting). We map these formulas to data by estimating firm-level markups for many countries, using demand-based and cost-based estimation techniques. Our analysis reveals that trade openness has increased the welfare cost of markups among low-income countries by 21% while lowering it by 10% among high-income nations. These unequal effects are driven entirely by rent-shifting from low-income countries to high-income trading partners. We show that these rent-shifting effects are akin to hidden tariffs that violate reciprocity and favor high-income nations.
