This thesis contains three self contained studies on firm bahaviour during a period of trade liberalisation and export boom in China.In Chapter 1, we describe the general institutional background of the Chinese export boom from 2000 to 2007, look into the structure of this growth by examining the sources of the changes in export value, and give the outline of each core chapter.In Chapter 2, we use a new linked firm product data to measure the domestic value added and technology intensity of Chinese exports over the period 2000 2007. We re evaluate the extent of value added in China’s exports, using a modification of a method proposed by Hummels et al. (2001) which takes into account the prevalence of processing firms.

Why? Because they think that cultural consumerism whether nascent as displayed in Kabul or fullblown as in the hedonist West is the serpent in freedom’s garden. When culture and commerce meet, they believe, both democracy and prosperity are poisoned. As for true culture, it hasn’t got a chance.Hence, when Hillary Clinton, then still the first lady, addressed the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, a couple of years ago, she argued that “there is no doubt that we are creating a consumer driven culture that promotes values and ethics that undermine both capitalism and democracy.” In fact, she said, “I think you could argue that the kind of work ethic, postponement of gratification, and other attributes that are historically associated with capitalism are being undermined by consumer capitalism.”Leave aside the spectacle of making such a speech to some of the world’s richest and most privileged people gathered in a highly exclusive Alpine resort.
