A note on firm age and the margins of exports: First evidence from Germany
Abstract: This note uses a new tailor-made data set to investigate
the link between firm age and the extensive and intensive margins of
exports empirically for the first time for Germany. Results turn out to be
fully in line with the theoretical considerations. Older firms are more
often exporters, export more and more different goods to more different
destination countries, and export to more distant destination markets.
