Séminaire CREAM-Pamina KOENIG

Nous avons le plaisir de vous inviter à la prochaine séance du séminaire d’économie du laboratoire CREAM qui aura lieu le jeudi 12 décembre de 12h30 à 13h30 en salle C322 (Reporté) sur le site Pasteur. Pamina Koenig nous présentera son article intitulé "Reputation and (un)fair trade: Effects on French importers from the Rana Plaza collapse", coécrit avec Sandra Poncet (PSE - U Paris 1 et CEPII)

Vous trouverez ci-dessous le résumé de l’article :
“This paper studies the effects of an important shock on the reputation of textile importers from Bangladesh. The collapse of the Rana Plaza building in April 2003 generated a surge in activism targeting specifically the firms that were sourcing from the factories affected by the disaster. Using monthly firm-level import data from French customs, we investigate whether there is any disruption in the sourcing from Bangladesh of denounced firms, compared to other companies and other sourcing origins. We use a triple difference approach and control for common demand and supply determinants. Our results show a decrease of imported values from Bangladesh consecutive to the shock, for firms whose name was associated to the accident. This relative trade loss occurs within a context of increasing French imports from Bangladesh. Our finding holds for a number of placebos, including artificially changing the affected firms and origin countries.”
