Posted: December 2008


The aim of this paper is to extensively review empirical studies that analyze the globalization phenomena by using micro data. First, we set up a flow chart describing how the policy measures on globalization lead to national productivity enhancement. Second, we summarize the hypotheses and the methods explored in 12 literatures on globalization, which this flow chart is mapping. Last, we discuss further possible avenues in micro data analyses.
