CEP Symposium: Firm Level Dynamics and Micro Data From Asian Economies

Edited by Brad Humphreys

Symposium Introduction

Japan and Korea experienced a transition from an era of fast growth to a slower growth period as their income levels converged to the high level in developed countries. This highlights the need for in-depth studies on firm level productivity since the accumulation of inputs, including human capital, cannot drive long run economic growth like before. Studies on firm dynamics contribute to our understanding of productivity growth. This symposium contains a sample of papers presented at the 2019 WEAI annual conference. The papers analyze plant and firm level data and address issues relevant to productivity slowdown in Japan and Korea.
