What makes a high-quality exporter? Evidence from Germany
Abstract: This paper uses a tailor-made newly available data set to
investigate for the first time the links between the quality of input
factors and the quality of exports in enterprises from manufacturing
industries in Germany, one of the leading actors on the world market for
goods. The paper demonstrates that in German manufacturing industries
exporters of high-quality goods tend to use high-quality inputs, while the
firm size is not related at all to export quality.
