North American free trade : assessing the impact( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proposed North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) represents a historic change in relations among Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The effect of the agreement on the three economies has generated controversy and some degree of alarm within each country. In this book, noted trade and development experts review the available literature on the effects of NAFTA on the three member countries and the world trading system. They evaluate how NAFTA will affect areas such as economic growth, employment, income distribution, industry, and agriculture in Canada, Mexico, and the United States, and consider the significance the trade agreement holds for the rest of the world. Drusilla K. Brown begins the discussion by providing an overview and comparison of the general results from recent studies. Raul Hinojosa-Ojeda and Sherman Robinson explore in greater detail the potential effects of NAFTA on wages and employment in Mexico and the United States. Sidney Weintraub reviews industry-specific effects of NAFTA, while Tim Josling explores how the trade agreement specifically will affect agriculture. Robert A. Pastor looks at the noneconomic issues of NAFTA, in particular, the environment, the social agenda, and human rights and democracy. Finally, Carlos Alberto Primo Braga considers the implications of NAFTA on the rest of the world. Following each of these chapters, international scholars assess the alternatives and provide recommendations for future research

Saving and investment in a global economy by Barry Bosworth( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using data from the major industrial countries, Bosworth highlights the process by which changes in domestic rates of saving and investment lead to changes in interest rates, exchange rates, and trade balances. He first examines why national saving and investment have fallen throughout the industrialized world. He then focuses on the determinants of exchange rates and trade flows, and considers whether the wide fluctuations in exchange rates are a cause for concern or simply an integral part of the international adjustment to the divergent patterns of national saving and investment."--Jacket

The economy of Puerto Rico : restoring growth( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a territory of the United States, Puerto Rico operates under U.S. judicial, monetary, and tariff systems. Despite sharing these key U.S. institutions, however, the region's economy has stalled. Since the 1970s, the island has experienced economic stagnation, large scale unemployment, and a widening income gap relative to the mainland. Here, economists from Puerto Rico and the United States address the major policy issues-labor supply and demand, entrepreneurship, the fiscal situation, financial markets, and trade-at the heart of Puerto Rico's economic difficulties." "While many studies have analyzed the implications of Puerto Rico's political relationship with the United States, The Economy of Puerto Rico focuses on the island's economic development. The contributors to this innovative book assess Puerto Rico's past experience with various growth policies. They analyze reforms and new initiatives for increasing employment, encouraging private sector development, improving education, upgrading infrastructure, and fixing government finance. They conclude by presenting policy recommendations and proposing a strategy to jump-start economic growth in Puerto Rico. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
