Abstract: 
Why is it that exporter productivity premia (EPP) differ so widely in size? We take this question to the theory and to the data. We derive the sectoral EPP in a standard heterogeneous firms trade model and apply the insights from the model to 13 years of data for all Danish manufacturing firms. We show that a significant share of the observed variation in EPPs across sectors, and hence across countries, can be explained by the variation in productivity dispersion, trade costs and the elasticity of substitution.
