THE EFFECTS OF GLOBALIZATION ON FIRM PERFORMANCE IN EMERGING MARKETS: EVIDENCE FROM EMERGING-7 COUNTRIES

Journal Title: Asian Economic and Financial Review - Year 2012, Vol 2, Issue 7

Abstract

Although there exists a wide array of literature regarding almost every aspect of globalization at macro level, surprisingly, the micro level of the subject area seems to be a little ignored and consequently, almost nothing is known about the impact of globalization on firm performance/value. In an attempt to contribute to fulfilling this gap, this research focuses on the impact of the overall globalization level of a country and its single dimensions, specifically her economic, her political and her social globalization levels on firm performance which is measured by the stock market index returns for “Emerging-7 (E7)” countries, specifically Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia and Turkey, for the period 1998-2009 by using panel data estimation. The findings suggest that the overall level of globalization significantly improves firm performance. Besides, the single dimensions of globalization are also found to have value enhancing effects though the result for economic globalization is insignificant at conventional levels. Additionally, the political globalization seems to be the most promising dimension of globalization with regard to performance enhancing prospects for firms.
