标题：Market Interdependence Through Shared Suppliers: Theory and Evidence from Termination of the Multifiber Arrangement
摘要：Leveraging the event of quota lifting by members of Multifiber Arrangement in 2005, we use a difference-in-differences design that compares firm-level Chinese exports of the previously-capped and uncapped products to the countries outside of the MFA. We find strong evidence of market interdependence empirically. The quota removal led to a significant decrease in the exports of MFA-capped products. The suppliers with dampened sales either increased sales in the liberalizing markets or entered them for the first time. We interpret these findings in a multi-country trade model with increasing marginal cost of production. In the model, the marginal cost rises when firms begin to serve markets with growing demand, resulting in a fall in sales in, or even exit, from the countries outside of the MFA. We derive welfare changes in the exporter country, accounting for changes in marginal costs. Our analysis suggests that gains from trade liberalization in the participating countries may come at the expense of the others.
