Productivity growth is vital for wealth creation. It is fashioned by a number of factors including international trade and foreign direct investment. This volume examines the nature of the links between the globalisation process and productivity growth whilst including empirical analyses of these links. Other subjects covered include how exporting and productivity interact; the relevance of ownership to productivity growth; and potential spillovers from multinational firms to indigenous firms in their host country. This volume offers the most complete collection of studies available on this key issue.
