论文摘要: 

We investigate how early life circumstances induced by trade liberalization affect adolescent mental health in China. We find that children born in prefectures more exposed to an exogenous change in international trade policy experienced a significant relative decline in the incidence of severe depression during adolescence, as classified by the CES-D scale. We show that these results are not driven by preexisting trends in the outcomes, and that the estimated relationships are robust to controls for initial prefecture attributes and other policy changes. Improvements in parental income, early childhood investments, and maternal care provision are likely operative channels of impact.
