Multinational Corporations and Export Quality
Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization
We investigate the effects of spillovers on quality of exports emanating from investment in product quality by multinational corporations, operating in less developed countries. By using a duopoly set up, we show that under price competition these spillovers enhance the quality of exports by less developed countries. We also show that this result is valid under quantity competition.
