Assessing the Reliability of Studies on the Value Added Distribution in globally fragmented Production Processes based on Input-Output Models

Baumert, Nicolai LU (2016)
Abstract
Input-output analyses have gained relevance in studies examining the value added distribution along globally fragmented value chains. However, their reliability to reflect true value added contributions has been challenged by biases identified by Nomaler & Verspagen (2014). In order to extend their analysis with an empirical component, we construct hypothetical input-output tables representing global scenarios based on national data. By simulating value added measurements by Los et al. (2015), we identify the distortions empirically but argue that their small magnitude does not justify questioning recent studies of value added distribution within global value chains.
