KCG Professors Have Contributed to the Report of the German Council of Economic Advisors
16th November 2017
Holger Görg and Aoife Hanley wrote a background paper for the latest report by the German Council of Economic Advisors (Sachverständigenrat). The background paper, entitled “Globalization: Implications for Firms in Germany”, looks at data at the firm level to shed light on questions such as: What types of firms are involved in trade or investments? What distinguishes these globalized firms, if anything, from firms that are not engaged in these international activities? What benefits are there for the firms and also their workers? Insights provided in the background paper are taken up in the Council’s Report in Chapter 7.
