The effect of trade on earnings - evidence from Swedish micro data
2004 (English)In: Oxford Economic Papers, Vol. 56, no 2, 231-241 p.Article in journal (Other academic) Published
Using a large longitudinal data set, we study the effects of increased trade on earnings in the Swedish labor market. Earnings respond significantly to changes in industry sales, whether generated by domestic market forces or international trade: Swedish exports (imports) raise (lower) annual earnings, but changes in trade affect earnings just as any other shift in market conditions. We also examine whether the effects of trade vary by skill. We do not find systematic differences in the effects of trade across the skill distribution.
