If the distribution of firm sizes is approximately Zipf, then aggregate trade is inversely proportional to distance.
Liquidity Constrained Exporters
When the value of a firm's real estate appreciates, the firm invests and hires new workers.
This real estate collateral channel can explain 10% of the aggregate investment and employment growth in France over 2002-2006.
