This article quantifies the aggregate effects of firing costs in a model of firm dynamics where firm-level productivity is determined by innovation. In the model, the productivity distribution is
Trade and Growth : The Impact of Selection and Imitation
This paper develops an endogenous growth and trade model with heterogeneous firms to analyze the impact of intra-industry trade on productivity growth. Growth is generated through a mechanism of

This paper studies how incorporation, which provides limited liability to firm owners, affects firm dynamics and macroeconomy. I propose an endogenous growth model of firm dynamics with endogenous
International Trade and Growth: The Impact of Seletion and Imitation
This paper develops an endogenous growth model with heterogeneous firms to analyze the impact of intra-industry trade on productivity growth. Growth is generated by selection, and sustained by
Growth through Experimentation
Recent empirical research has documented the importance of shocks to firm- specific productivity, but has provided only limited evidence on their sources. This paper proposes and analyzes purposeful
Regulation and Trade in Development Explaining Productivity at the Firm Level
Institutions, and their underlying rules, are essential for economic development, in that they provide a framework for markets to operate. However, different types of regulatory roles and even
Essays on Firm Dynamics, Endogenous Growth and International Trade
Recent empirical firm level studies reveal the structural heterogeneity of firms in process and product innovation, as well as the central role of product quality in determining world trade patterns
The Impact of Regulation on Innovation
Does regulation affect the pace and nature of innovation and if so, by how much? We build a tractable and quantifiable endogenous growth model with size-contingent regulations. We apply this to
Endogenous Growth through Firm Entry, Exit and Imitation
A simple dynamic general equilibrium model is set up in which firms face idiosyncratic productivity shocks. Firms whose productivity has fallen too low exit, and entrants try to imitate the practice
Dynamic effects of labor market reforms on productivity. A survey
Institutional reforms have long been a central focus of the European economic policy debate, and the labor market in particular has been subject to never definitive reforms in the past 20 years,

Selection, Growth, and the Size Distribution of Firms
This paper describes an analytically tractable model of balanced growth that is consistent with the observed size distribution of firms. Growth is the result of idiosyncratic firm productivity

A simple dynamic general equilibrium model is set up in which firms face idiosyncratic productivity shocks. Firms whose productivity has fallen too low exit, and entrants try to imitate the practice
Job Turnover and Policy Evaluation: A General Equilibrium Analysis
Recent empirical work indicates that job creation and destruction rates are large, implying significant amounts of job reallocation across firms. This paper builds a general equilibrium model of this
DO FIRING COSTS AFFECT THE INCIDENCE OF FIRM BANKRUPTCY?
An overlooked topic is the treatment of worker claims when firms are shutting down. In fact, when firms close, worker claims such as severance pay often go unfulfilled. To evaluate the quantitative
The Role of Policy and Institutions for Productivity and Firm Dynamics: Evidence from Micro and Industry Data
This paper presents empirical evidence on the role that policy and institutional settings in both product and labour market play for productivity and firm dynamics. It exploits a new firm-level
Employment Protection, International Specialization, and Innovation
We develop a model to analyze the implications of firing costs on incentives for R & D and international specialization. The key idea is that, to avoid paying firing costs, the country with a rigid

Aggregate Productivity Growth: Lessons from Microeconomic Evidence
In this paper, we exploit establishment-level data to examine the relationship between microeconomic productivity dynamics and aggregate productivity growth. After synthesizing the evidence from
Entry, exit, and firm dynamics in long run equilibrium
A dynamic stochastic model for a competitive industry is developed in which entry, exit, and the growth of firms' output and employment is determined. The paper extends long-run industry equilibrium
