Challenges to globalization : analyzing the economics by Robert E Baldwin( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 2,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Challenges to Globalization evaluates the arguments of pro-globalists and anti-globalists regarding issues such as globalization's relationship to democracy; its impact on the environment and on labor markets; the brain drain, sweat shop labor, wage levels, and changes in production processes; and the associated expansion of trade and its effects on prices. Baldwin, Winters, and the contributors to this volume look at multinational firms, foreign investment, and mergers and acquisitions and present surprising findings that often run counter to the claim that multinational firms primarily seek countries with low-wage labor. The book closes with papers on financial opening and on the relationship between international economic policies and national economic growth rates."--Jacket

Poverty and the WTO : impacts of the Doha Development Agenda by Thomas W Hertel( )

31 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 1,095 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reports on the findings from a major international research project investigating the poverty impacts of a potential Doha Development Agenda (DDA). It combines in a novel way the results from several strands of research. First, it draws on an intensive analysis of the DDA Framework Agreement, with particularly close attention paid to potential reforms in agriculture. The scenarios are built up using newly available tariff line data, and their implications for world markets are established using a global modeling framework. These world trade impacts form the basis for 12 country case studies of the national poverty impacts of these DDA scenarios. The focus countries are Bangladesh, Brazil (2 studies), Cameroon, China (2 studies), Indonesia, Mexico, Mozambique, the Philippines, the Russian Federation, and Zambia. Although the diversity of approaches taken in these studies limits the ability to draw broader conclusions, an additional study that provides a 15-country cross-section analysis is aimed at this objective. Finally, a global analysis provides estimates for the world as a whole

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outcome of the Uruguay Round is a milestone for developing countries. However, this initial step of integrating developing countries into the global economy opens a new range of challenges and opportunities. This booklet evaluates the outcome of the Round and outlines ways we can move forward. It also suggests strategies for implementing the agreement, proposes how it can be extended, and provides part of the analytical base for future multilateral negotiations aimed at accelerating the integration of developing countries into the world economy

The economics of sustainable development by Ian Goldin( Book )

22 editions published between 995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book applies rigorous economic analysis to the question of sustainable development. It considers the inter-relationship between growth and sustainability showing that one does not necessarily exist to the detriment of the other. Sustainability may be measured and defined in national accounting terms and the contributors explore a potentially powerful theoretical definition. Case studies on Morocco and China examine some of the domestic policy requirements of sustainability, revealing the desirability of quite complex combinations of policies. International policy aspects of sustainability are considered, such as technology transfers and the establishment of workable agreements to reduce global pollution. The volume demonstrates the need to build the sustainability debate on sound economic foundations, and the ability of economists to provide such foundations

The Uruguay Round and the developing countries by Will Martin( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifteen years of the GATT between the conclusion of the Tokyo Round in 1979 and the finalization of the Uruguay Round in 1994 witnessed a sea-change in attitudes toward the role of international trade in developing countries. Encouraged by the manifest success of the outward-oriented economies of East Asia, many developing countries began to undertake radical liberalizations of their trade regimes. The shift in orientation toward relatively open trading systems was reflected in the attitudes and participation of developing countries in the Uruguay Round. They involved themselves fully in formulating the rules of the new trading system, and also made significant offers both in the conventional area of reducing tariff protection on manufactures trade, and in the "new" areas, such as trade in services, trade in agriculture, and trade-related intellectual property. This volume provides an assessment of the economic impact of the Uruguay Round of the GATT on the developing countries. The authors, all leading international trade economists, examine all aspects of the agreement and conclude that the cuts in protection should strengthen the world trading system and result in increases in real incomes in developing countries
Primary commodity prices : economic models and policy( Book )

17 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commodity markets are of considerable interest and importance to economists, econometricians and dealers. This book reports the proceedings of an international conference on 'Primary Commodity Prices: Economic Models and Policy', held in London under the auspices of the Centre for Economic Policy Research in March 1989. A range of papers by leading international authorities covers topics such as expectations formation in econometric commodity market models; price determination in the market for aluminium; the estimation of dynamic disequilibrium models with rational expectations; and a comparison of forward markets and buffer stocks as commodity earnings stabilizers. A key feature of this stock is its development of the policy implications of theoretical and empirical work in the field of commodity economics. Most papers are accompanied by discussant's comments to draw out their technical and policy implications. The book's readership will include commodity economists, commodity market practitioners and policy analysis, as well as professionals and advanced students interested in the fields of applied econometrics, economic development and international trade
Agriculture and the new trade agenda : creating a global trading environment for development( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays provides the definitive survey of the importance of agricultural reform to the future of the world's trading system. There is growing consensus concerning the need to reduce the level of subsidies in agriculture and to open up the markets of the developed world more to the farmers of the developing world. However, while non-governmental organizations such as Oxfam may agree on this point with free trade economists, governments in Europe and the U.S. seem reluctant to give up their protectionist habits
Redefining the role of government in agriculture for the 1990s by Odin Knudsen( Book )

Trade flows and trade policy after '1992'( Book )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The completion of the European Community's single market programme will stimulate the European economy and affect the rest of the world principally through its effects on trade among EC member states and on the Community's external trade. Although there has been much discussion of the effects of '1992' on economic welfare, there has been relatively little detailed analysis of the trade issues involved. This volume offers a major re-appraisal of the effect of completing the EC's single market programme on trade among EC member states and also on the Community's external trade. Individual chapters assess the effects of '1992' on EC and world trade and welfare and analyse its effects on competition if transport costs and taste differences remain after completing the internal market. Detailed case-studies show that integration has complex effects on trade flows and prices and stress the importance of devising a satisfactory international trade policy for the completed market. Other chapters estimate the elasticities of demand for imports within the EC and examine the effects of industrial policy
Open economies : structural adjustment and agriculture by Centre de développement de l'OCDE (Paris)( Book )

17 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interaction between macroeconomic and agricultural sector reforms is of vital importance to developing and East European economies, whose agricultural sectors account for major shares of economic activity and income. Derived from a conference organised jointly by the Centre for Economic Policy Research and the OECD Development Centre, the papers in this volume adopt an open economy perspective to reform, and throw light on the sequencing of reforms in the context of structural adjustment and 'intersectoral imbalance'. Leading international figures examine the stabilisation of agricultural prices and income, the public finance dimensions of agricultural reform, and the prospects for policies of liberalisation and trade reform currently being adopted in many developing and East European countries
Trade liberalization and poverty : a handbook by Neil McCulloch( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sponsored by the UK Department of International Development, this text deals directly with concerns that reform may have adverse effects on poverty in developing countries. The first part of the book recaps the current debates over trade policy and anti-poverty policy and the connections between them. The second part explores ten areas of trade policy that are likely to figure in future trade negiotiations and examines the possible impact upon poverty in each case. The authors argue that the poverty impact of trade liberalization is extremely country specific, being pro-poor in some cases and anti-poor in others. However, they believe that it is better to tackle poverty concerns directly (for example, by safety nets and investments to facilitate structural reform), rather than through the continuation of protectionist policies. Given the popular suspicions about trade liberalization, this handbook should make an important contribution to debate on globalization and poverty
