dc.description.abstractThis paper analyzes the performance of Mexican manufacturing firms following tradeliberalization within a very specific institutional setting: The North American Free-TradeAgreement (NAFTA). We compare plants' productivity growth and patterns of job creationand destruction across their relative degree of integration into foreign product markets, theiraccess to technology, and behavior with respect to research and development. Our findingsshow that access to imported inputs is the more significant vehicle for productivity enhancingeffects of trade openness. Investment in technology is, by far, most strongly correlated withplant productivity. Like productivity, job turnover at firm level is strongly influenced by thedegree of integration in international markets, import competition, and R&D behavior.en_US
