Description

Two Global Value Chains decompositions are implemented. Firstly, the Wang, Wei, and Zhu (2013) algorithm splits bilateral gross exports into 16 value added components. Secondly, the Leontief decomposition (default) derives the value added origin of exports by country and industry, see Leontief (1937).

Additional tools for GVC analysis are available in the gvc package.

The Wang-Wei-Zhu algorithm (wwz())is based on R code written by Fei Wang (not to be confused with the author of the algorithm, with the same last name), which implemented this algorithm.
