"Embodied Technology Transfer via International Trade and Disaggregation of labor payments by skill level: A Quantitative Exploration in GTAP Framework"
by Das, Gouranga

This paper investigates the impact of a 4% Hicks-neutral technical progress in heavy manufacturing in the United States and its trans-border spillover via intermediates. A three-regi on, six-traded-commodity computable general equilibrium model is numerically simulated to show that differentials in regional productivity improvements depend on their absorptive ca pacity and structural similarity. This determines the extent of technology capture. The model results show that the productivity improvement and transmission result in productivity gro wth in sectors
intensively using heavy manufacturing. Returns to skilled labour depend on te chnology spillover and capture parameter. The results have implications for the role of human capital in assimilating advanced technology.
