Market Shares, Financial Constraints and Pricing Behavior in the Export Industry
Uppsala University.
1994 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The customer market model of Phelps and Winter (1970) is used as theoretical framework for a study of Swedish exports and export prices of manufactured goods. Consistent with the model, I find that demand variations have an immediate effect on exports, while price effects take time. The export price depends on costs, exchange rates, competitors' prices, and financial conditions, measured by net borrowing. The latter effect supports the argument in Gottfries (1991) that firms set higher prices when they are financially pressed. There is evidence of short-run price rigidity in the sense that prices are set under imperfect information concerning competitors' prices and exchange rates.
