Economics Research Seminar

Exporting Spatial Externalities

Sponsored by: Economics Department

Speaker(s): Andrew Cassey, Ph.D., Washington State Univesity

Date & Time: Friday, Nov. 20, 2015 from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Using spatial econometrics, we estimate the e ect of externalities generated by neighbors' exports on place-level exports, explicitly modeling the distance to those neighbors. We nd there is a positive e ect of neighbors' exports on exports to the same country but less so for exporting generally. We also nd that using a spatial-weights term based on the physical distance between exporters greatly outperforms a dichotomous measure based on exporters in the same region.
The results are robust to alternative de nitions of the spatial weight.

Please join the Economics Department for a research seminar.  This event is open to all Case Western Reserve University faculty, Ph.D. students, economic majors and minors, and those interested in economics research.
