"Labor market effects of trade policies in GVC terms: Disentangle trade integration and productivity"
by Hauser, Selina

During the last decades, trade has changed substantially. From final goods trade to increasing intermediates and value-added trade, by today the trade network is highly complex and the sectoral structure of goods production has changed dramatically. Technological change and lower trade costs have induced geographic fragmentation of production processes and have led to substantial economic and political dislocations of employment. To explain increasing polarization of labor markets, recent literature has mainly focused on two opposing approaches by explaining expanding international trade by the rise of newly emerging markets like China on the one side, and technological change on the other. This study expands the discussion in a new direction towards a more comprehensive examination of labor market transitions.
The contributions of this study to the literature are two-fold. First, I provide new measures for trade integration by calculating the ad valorem equivalents of cumulative tariff rates and global value chain (GVC) related non-tariff barriers (NTBs) to trade. Second, by using these measures in combination with the Chinese productivity shock in value added terms, I provide a method to disentangle the role of trade integration on productivity shocks.
