A basic network perspective

João Amador, Sónia Cabral

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Global value chains (GVCs) have deeply changed the paradigm of world production,
strongly affecting labour market and productivity developments. This chapter broadly surveys the empirical research on the impacts of GVCs on employment, wages and productivity. Most papers conclude that the rise of GVCs accounts for a relevant part of the increase in the relative demand for skilled labour in developed countries, but the overall effect on the level of employment is small. As for productivity, the literature suggests a positive impact of participation in GVCs.
