dc.description.abstractGlobalization has affected business cycle developments in OECD countries and hasincreased activities of firms across national borders. This paper analyzes whether thesetwo developments are linked. We use a new firm-level dataset on the foreign activitiesof German firms to test whether foreign activities are affected by business cycledevelopments. We aggregate the data by the sector of the reporting firm, the sector ofthe foreign affiliate, and the host country. Data are annual and cover the period 1989-2002. We find that German outward FDI increases in response to positive cyclicaldevelopments abroad and in response to a depreciation of the domestic currency.en_US
