Heterogeneity and the FDI versus Export Decision of Japanese Manufacturers Keith Head, John Ries. NBER Working Paper No. Issued in October NBER Program(s):International Trade and Investment Program. We investigate whether productivity differences explain why some manufacturers sell only to the domestic market while others serve foreign markets through exports and/or FDI.

Obviously these assumptions are not designed for realism but rather to examine the FDI versus export decision in a truly “minimal” model of the market. Exports incur a per unit trade cost of τ whereas FDI allows the firm to avoid trade costs but requires a fixed cost K to operate the Size: KB.

Theoretical models have recently incorporated inter-firm heterogeneity into the firm's globalization decision. When firms are heterogeneous, the optimal choice differs across firms.
