Handbook of international economics by Ronald Winthrop Jones( Book )

48 editions published between 1984 and 2001 in English and held by 1,002 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
Innovation and growth in the global economy by Gene M Grossman( Book )

42 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 829 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

The political economy of trade policy : papers in honor of Jagdish Bhagwati by Robert C Feenstra( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of papers by colleagues and former students celebrates the profound impact that Jagdish Bhagwati has had on the field of international economics over the past three decades. Bhagwati, who is the Arthur Lehman Professor of Economics at Columbia University, has made pathbreaking contributions to the theory of international trade and commercial policy, including immiserizing growth, domestic distortions, economic development, and political economy. His success and influence as a teacher and mentor is widely recognized among students at both MIT and Columbia, and as founder of the Journal of International Economics, he has encouraged research on many questions of theoretical and policy relevance. The political economy of trade policy, Bhagwati's most recent area of interest, is the theme of this collection, which addresses salient topics including market distortions, income distribution, and the political process of policy-making
Legal and economic principles of world trade law : the genesis of the GATT, the economics of trade agreements, border instruments, and national treatment : report to ALI (April 16, 2012) by Henrik Horn( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Submitted by the Council to the Members of the American Law Institute for discussion at the eighty-ninth annual meeting on May 21, 22, and 23, 2012."
Intergenerational redistribution with short-lived governments by Gene M Grossman( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the politics of intergenerational redistribution in an overlapping generations model with short-lived governments. The successive governments who care about the welfare of the currently living generations and possibly about campaign contributions e unable to pre-commit the future course of redistributive taxation. In a stationary politico-economic equilibrium, the tax rate in each period depends on the current value of the state variable and all expectations about future political outcomes are fulfilled. We find that there exist multiple stationary equilibria in many political settings. Steady-state welfare is often lower than it would be in the absence of redistributive politics
Imperfect labor contracts and international trade by Gene M Grossman( Book )

35 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, I survey the recent theoretical literature that incorporates heterogeneous labor into models of international trade. The models with heterogeneous labor have been used to study how talent dispersion can be a source of comparative advantage, how the opening of trade affects the full distribution of wages, and how trade affects industry productivity and efficiency via its impact on sorting and matching in the labor market. Some of the most recent contributions also introduce labor market frictions to study the effects of trade on structural unemployment and on mismatch between workers and firms -- National Bureau of Economic Research web site
Outsourcing versus FDI in industry equilibrium by Gene M Grossman( Book )

40 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We develop an equilibrium model of industrial structure in which the organization of firms is endogenous. Differentiated consumer products can be produced either by vertically integrated firms or by pairs of specialized companies. Production of each variety of consumer good requires a unique, specialized component. Vertically integrated firms can manufacture the components they need in the quantity and type that maximizes profits, but they face a relatively high cost due to diseconomies of scope. Specialized firms can produce at lower cost, but outsourcing imposes costs due to search frictions and imperfect contracting. We study the equilibrium mode of organization when inputs are fully or partially specialized. We consider how the degree of competition in the industry, the nature of the search technology, the division of bargaining strength between intermediate and final producers, and the sensitivity of manufacturing costs to input characteristics affect the equilibrium organizational form
Technology and trade by Gene M Grossman( Book )

31 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We survey research on the relationship between technology and trade. We begin with the old literature, which treated the state of technology as exogenous and asked how changes in technology affect the trade pattern and welfare. Recent research has attempted to endogenize technological progress which results either from learning- by-doing or from investments in research and development. This allows one to examine not only how technology affects trade, but also how trade affects the evolution of technology. We emphasize the parallels between the models with learning-by-doing and those with explicit R & D and highlight the role that the geographic extent of knowledge spillovers plays in mediating the relationship between trade and technological progress
Diversity and trade by Gene M Grossman( Book )

25 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We develop a competitive model of trade between countries with similar aggregate factor endowments. The trade pattern reflects differences in the distribution of talent across the labor forces of the two countries. The country with a relatively homogenous population exports the good produced by a technology with complementarities between tasks. The country with a more diverse work force exports the good for which individual success is more important. Imperfect observabilitiy of talent strengthens the forces of comparative advantage. Finally, we examine an aspect of education policy concerning the spread of human capital across the student population
International protection of intellectual property by Gene M Grossman( Book )

33 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We study the incentives that governments have to protect intellectual property in a trading world economy. We consider a world economy with ongoing innovation in two countries that differ in market size and in their capacities for innovation. We associate the strength of IPR protection with the duration of a country's patents that are applied with national treatment. After describing the determination of national policies in a non-cooperative regime of patent protection, we ask, Why are patents longer in the North? We also study international patent agreements by deriving the properties of an efficient global regime of patent protection and asking whether harmonization of patent policies is necessary or sufficient for global efficiency
Free trade vs. strategic trade : a peek into Pandora's box by Gene M Grossman( Book )

27 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We investigate whether a welfare-maximizing government ought to pursue a program of" strategic trade intervention or instead commit itself to free trade when domestic firms will have an opportunity to manipulate the government's choice of the level of" intervention. Domestic firms may overinvest in physical and knowledge capital in a regime of" strategic intervention in order to influence the government's choice of subsidy. In the event commitment to free trade may be desirable even in settings where profit-shifting would be" possible. We analyze the desirability of such a commitment when the government is well" informed about firms' types and actions, and when it suffers from an informational disadvantage."
The politics of free trade agreements by Gene M Grossman( Book )

34 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reviews the literature on governments' motivations for negotiating and joining international trade agreements. I discuss both normative explanations for trade agreements and explanations based on political-economy concerns. Most of the paper focuses on the purpose of multilateral agreements, but I do discuss briefly the reasons we might see governments forming preferential or regional trade agreements that exclude some countries
Handbook of international economics by Gene M Grossman( Book )

40 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This reference accords recognition to the recent revolution in macroeconomics wrought by imperfect competition. Grossman and Rogoff (Princeton U.) present chapters by two dozen contributors on two prime areas of research interest: international trade theory and policy (e.g. strategic trade patterns and policies, the relationship between trade and technological progress), and open economy macroeconomics and international finance (covering such topics as exchange rates, foreign lending, and policy coordination). The volume commences with Krugman's overview of the positive theory of international trade, and concludes with analyses of sovereign debt. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Wealth and poverty by George F Gilder( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilder compares America's current economic challenges with her past economic problems--particularly those of the late 1970s--and explains why Obama's big-government, redistributive policies are doing more harm than good for the poor. He makes the case that supply-side economics and free market policies are--and always will be--the answer to decreasing America's poverty rate and increasing her prosperity
