Andrea Lassmann (KOF Swiss Economic Institute). "The Causal Impact of Common Native Language on International Trade: Evidence from a Spatial Regression Discontinuity Design".

Gravity models of international trade have been frequently applied to estimate the impact of common (official or spoken) language on bilateral trade. This study provides a meta-analysis based on 701 language effects collected from 81 academic articles. On average, a common (official or spoken) language increases trade flows directly by 44%.


Seminar was held at: room 23 (3rd floor), b. 47, pr. Rimskogo-Korsakova, Saint Petersburg.
