Dealing with timing related soft fails has become predominant with recent technologies and is expected more so future. A backside FIB edit procedure allowed trimming of internal timing conditions, with demonstrated FIB-induced speed enhancement ≫ 20%. This proposed technique seems applicable to any on chip circuitry, expanding rapid prototyping(More)
This paper uses a gravity model framework to evaluate the impact of antidump-ing on trade volume over the period of the GATT/WTO (1948-2001). We conclude that the e¤ects have been negative, but quite modest. Acknowledgement 1.

In comparing investment behavior at the domestic location between pure exporters and multinational firms, one has to take into account that multinational firms do not arise randomly. There is self-selection, which requires an endogenous treatment approach for assessing the impact of being a multinational on domestic investment. Based on a simple model, we(More)
In this paper, we consider a spatial-autoregressive model with autoregressive disturbances, where we allow for endogenous regressors in addition to a spatial lag of the dependent variable. We suggest a two-step generalized method of moments (GMM) and instrumental variable (IV) estimation approach extending earlier work by, e.g., Kelejian and Prucha (1998,(More)
Trade economists have for long considered gravity models to estimate unexhausted potentials for bilateral trade. Similar to the discrepancy between "normal" and "actual" bilateral trade, one may ask the question about the difference between "normal" and actual bilateral multinational activity. However, with multinational activity, zero bilateral data and(More)
This paper focuses on the estimation of three distance-related effects on outward FDI. (i) Distance harms vertical multinationals, since they engage in trade. (ii) It makes non-trading multinationals better off than exporters. (iii) This positive effect on horizontal FDI is expected to rise with bilateral country size due to the home market effect. The use(More)
