The mystery of economic growth by Elhanan Helpman( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the leading researchers of economic growth, Helpman succinctly reviews, critiques, and integrates current research - on capital accumulation, education, productivity, trade, inequality, geography, and institutions - and clarifies its relevance for global economic inequities. In particular, he points to institutions - including property rights protection, legal systems, customs, and political systems - as the key to the mystery of economic growth. Solving this mystery could lead to policies capable of setting the poorest countries on the path toward sustained growth of per capita income and all that implies."--Jacket
Market structure and foreign trade : increasing returns, imperfect competition, and the international economy by Elhanan Helpman( Book )

53 editions published between 1985 and 2002 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Market Structure and Foreign Trade presents a coherent theory of trade in the presence of market structures other than perfect competition. The theory it develops explains trade patterns, especially of industrial countries, and provides an integration between trade and the role of multinational enterprises. Relating current theoretical work to the main body of trade theory, Helpman and Krugman review and restate known results and also offer entirely new material on contestable markets, oligopolies, welfare, and multinational corporations, and new insights on external economies, intermediate inputs, and trade composition. Elhanan Helpman is Professor of Economics at Tel Aviv University. Paul Krugman is Professor of Economics at MIT

Innovation and growth in the global economy by Gene M Grossman( Book )

40 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditional growth theory emphasizes the incentives for capital accumulation rather than technological progress. Innovation is treated as an exogenous process or a by-product of investment in machine and equipment. The authors develop a unique approach in which innovation is viewed as a deliberate outgrowth of investments in industrial research by forward-looking, profit-seeking agents
Handbook of international economics by Ronald Winthrop Jones( Book )

in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Handbook adopts a traditional definition of the subject, and focuses primarily on the explanation of international transactions in goods, services, and assets, and on the main domestic effects of those transactions. The first volume deals with the "real side" of international economics. It is concerned with the explanation of trade and factor flows, with their main effects on goods and factor prices, on the allocation of resources and income distribution and on economic welfare, and also with the effects on national policies designed explicitly to influence trade and factor flows. In other words, it deals chiefly with microeconomic issues and methods. The second volume deals with the "monetary side" of the subject. It is concerned with the balance of payments adjustment process under fixed exchange rates, with exchange rate determination under flexible exchange rates, and with the domestic ramifications of these phenomena. Accordingly, it deals mainly with economic issues, although microeconomic methods are frequently utilized, especially in work on expectations, asset markets, and exchange rate behavior."--Publisher's information
Understanding global trade by Elhanan Helpman( Book )

16 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global trade is of vital interest to citizens as well as policymakers, yet it is widely misunderstood. This compact exposition of the market forces underlying international commerce addresses both of these concerned groups, as well as the needs of students and scholars. Although it contains no equations, it is almost mathematical in its elegance, precision, and power of expression. It provides a thorough explanation of what shapes the international organization of production and distribution and the resulting trade flows. It reviews the evolution of knowledge in this field from Adam Smith to today as a process of theoretical modeling, accumulation of new empirical data, and then revision of analytical frameworks in response to evidence and changing circumstances. It explains the sources of comparative advantage and how they lead countries to specialize in making products which they then sell to other countries. While foreign trade contributes to the overall welfare of a nation, it also creates winners and losers, and the author describes mechanisms through which trade affects a country's income distribution. The book provides a clear and original account of the revolutions in trade theory of the 1980s and the most recent decade. It shows how scholars shifted the analysis of trade flows from the sectoral level to the business-firm level, to elucidate the growing roles of multinational corporations, offshoring, and outsourcing in the international division of labor. The author's explanation of the latest research findings is essential for an understanding of world affairs

15 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutions and economic performance( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Institutions and Economic Performance explores the question of why income per capita varies so greatly across countries. Even taking into account disparities in resources, including physical and human capital, large economic discrepancies remain across countries. Why are some societies but not others able to encourage investments in places, people, and productivity?" "The answer, the book argues, lies to a large extent in institutional differences across societies. Such institutions are wide-ranging and include formal constitutional arrangements, the role of economic and political elites, informal institutions that promote investment and knowledge transfer, and others. Two core themes run through the contributors' essays. First, what constraints do institutions place on the power of the executive to prevent it from extorting the investments and effort of other people and institutions? Second, when are productive institutions self-enforcing?"--Jacket
The organization of firms in a global economy( Book )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Organization of Firms in a Global Economy presents a new research program that is transforming the study of international trade. Driven by the availability of new micro data sets and innovative theoretical models, it focuses on the level of firms, products, and stages of production rather than on countries and industries. It addresses such questions as why only a small proportion of firms in a given industry export and why an even smaller proportion invest abroad; why exporters tend to be more productive than nonexporters; why almost one-third of international trade takes place between units of the same firm and why as much as two-thirds involves multinational firms as exporter, importer, or both; and why international trade may have been the most important driver of organizational changes in the corporation that have been taking place in the last decade. Until a few years ago, models of international trade did not recognize the heterogeneity of firms and exporters, and could not provide good explanations of international production networks. Now such models exist and are explored in this volume

R & D spillovers and global growth by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )

35 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: We examine the growth promoting roles of R & D, international R & D spillovers, and trade in a world econometric model. A country can raise its total factor productivity by investing in R & D. But countries can also boost their productivity by trading with other countries that have large stocks of knowledge from their cumulative R & D activities. We use a special version of MULTIMOD that incorporates R & D spillovers among industrial countries and from industrial countries to developing countries. Our simulations suggest that R & D, R & D spillovers, and trade play important roles in boosting growth in industrial and developing countries
Handbook of international economics by Gita Gopinath( Book )

12 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What conclusions can be drawn from recent advances in international trade and international macroeconomics? New datasets, theoretical models, and empirical studies have resulted in fresh questions about the world trade and payment system. These chapters--six on trade and six on international macroeconomics--reveal the richness that researchers have uncovered in recent years. The chapters on foreign trade present, among other subjects, new integrated multisector analytical frameworks, the use of gravity equations for the estimation of trade flows, the role of domestic institutions in shaping comparative advantage, and international trade agreements. On international macroeconomics, chapters explore the relation between exchange rates and other macroeconomic variables; risk sharing, allocation of capital across countries, and current account dynamics; and sovereign debt and financial crises. By addressing new issues while enabling deeper and sharper analyses of old issues, this volume makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the global economy
