Emir Malikov (Economics), together with Shunan Zhao of the Oakland University, Michigan, coauthored an article, "On the Estimation of Cross-Firm Productivity Spillovers with an Application to FDI," that has been accepted at the Review of Economics and Statistics. In the paper, the authors develop a novel methodology for the robust measurement of firm productivity in the presence of productivity-modifying learning and spillovers which facilitates a unified "internally consistent" analysis of the spillover effects between peer firms. Contrary to the popular empirical approach, the new methodology does not postulate contradictory assumptions and is immune to spurious results.
