Abstract

In this paper, we propose a hypothetical extraction that provides a theoretically-funded measure of FVA in gross exports and we provide full expressions for a decomposition of gross exports into four terms: DVA, domestic double counting (DDC), FVA and foreign double counting (FDC). As in Los et al. (2016), the fact that we calculate a hypothetical GDP without the exports from a given country is the basis for validating the interpretation of the FVA term. Our DVA term is the same as Los et al. (2016).
