dc.description.abstractThis paper analyses the concept of linkages and studies the development andthe determinants of inter-firm linkages between electronics firms in Irelandand domestic sub-suppliers using firm level data for 1982 to 1995. Wediscuss the concept of inter-firm linkages and the effects of linkages. Weargue that the concept of linkages developed by Hirschman (1958) is aninter-sectoral concept which can arise as a result of underlying inter-firmlinkages. Our empirical analysis indicates that foreign-owned electronicfirms in Ireland source, on average, 24 per cent of their inputs in Ireland,which compares favourably with an estimate for foreign firms in Scottishelectronics industries. In an econometric estimation, using panel datatechniques, we find that firms in the Irish electronics sector increase theirbackward linkages over time; that foreign firms have lower linkages thanIrish-owned firms; and that large and expanding firms have lower linkagesthan other firms.-
