Distorted gravity: Heterogeneous Firms, Market Structure and the Geography of International Trade∗ Thomas Chaney† University of Chicago, MIT January, Abstract By considering only the intensive margin of trade, Krugman () predicts that a higher elasticity of substitution between goods magnifies the impact of trade barriers on trade.

Recent theories on trade with heterogeneous firms predict that export to foreign markets goes along with sunk market-entry costs. Only the more productive firms will be able to absorb such sunk costs, so that ex ante self selection on the basis of productivity may be by: 1.

While much progress has been made on these fronts, much remains to be done. 2 Trade with Heterogeneous Firms and Endogenous Quality In this section I introduce a multi-country model of trade in a continuum of di erentiated products. The model follows Melitz () and Helpman, Melitz, and Rubinstein () closely in conceptualizing the rm-level decision to export, but deviates from it .

Within five chapters Helpman takes the reader from the classical theories of international trade, comparative advantage and Heckscher-Ohlin, to the modern theories that explain today's global trading world--of multinational firms, of outsourcing and outshoring, of why some firms export and others remain firmly local--and why it matters.”Cited by: The second part reviews recent empirical research in global value chains, trade costs, and heterogeneous firms, particularly from analysing large datasets of individual firms' characteristics and of trade flows disaggregated to very finely detailed levels.

The third section of the book analyzes trade policies and discusses current policy debates. The Melitz structure of heterogeneous firms is particularly appealing given its consistency with micro-level findings on firm sizes and export behavior.
