题目：Productivity differences among unaffiliated domestic firms, licensees and foreign subsidiareis
摘要：Many papers consider the entry mode choice of multinational firms into host-country markets, generally focusing on the multinationals themselves. Here we change the focus to the domestic firms competing with the multinationals or linked to them as licensees or foreign affiliates. We begin with an empirical exercise using Chilean plant-level data which motivates and informs the theory to follow. We show that plants which are foreign owned have higher productivity, sales and value added than those that are linked to a foreign firm through licensing, and that the latter in turn have higher productivity and larger size than domestic unaffiliated firms. Across industries, those with a larger difference between the productivity of domestic firms and foreign subsidiaries are industries with a larger share of foreign affiliates.
