The distributional effects of international outsourcing in a 2×2 production model


Egger, Hartmut; Falkinger, Josef (2003). The distributional effects of international outsourcing in a 2×2 production model. North American Journal of Economics and Finance, 14(2):189-206.

Abstract

This paper examines the distributional effects of international outsourcing in a two-sector, two-factor model. The analysis allows for switches between diversified and specialized equilibria. Also, equilibria in which only some firms of a sector outsource (incomplete or partial outsourcing) are considered. It is the interplay of the cost-saving and substitution effects of international outsourcing that determines the nature of the outsourcing equilibrium and its distributional consequences.
