Roughly one-third of world trade is intrafirm trade. This paper starts by unveiling two systematic patterns in the volume of intrafirm trade.

In a cross-section of countries, the share of(More)

We estimate the e¤ect of household appliance ownership on the labor force participation rate of married women using micro-level data from the 1960 and 1970 U.S. Censuses. In order to identify the causal e¤ect of home appliance ownership on married women's labor force participation rates, our empirical strategy exploits both time-series and cross-sectional(More)
Mangrove forests are ecosystems made up of several woody plants living in saline coastal sedimentary habitats. In order to deal with the high salinity of the substrate, mangrove trees possess a number of different mechanisms to exclude, sequestrate or excrete the excess of salt. The black mangrove (Avicennia germinans L.), one of the dominant species in(More)
