Once unquestionably the world's leading economic and industrial power, the United States now views with growing dismay the impressive industrial efficiency, vigorous work ethics, and large American holdings of various other nations.

Concern over this question has been voiced in both the business and government sectors, as well as by academic economists. A recent conference, sponsored by the National Bureau of Economic Research, explored the effects of trade policies on a nation's ability to compete in in

The effects of U.S. trade protection and promotion policies by Robert C Feenstra( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gone are the days when the United States was evaluated by its ability to negotiate multilateral policies of mutual benefit to a broad group of countries. Economists disagree on whether recent U.S. trade policies are harmful or helpful, but they all agree that there is a new trend toward focusing on results-oriented policies in specific markets and with particular trading partners. These twelve essays by leading international economists examine crucial issues in U.S. trade policy today. Taken together, these essays show that some policies can act to both protect imports and promote exports, and that the threat of protectionist policies can often have effects that are as pronounced as their actual implementation. This timely volume will be of crucial interest to international trade economists, policy specialists, and political scientists

Scanner data and price indexes by Robert C Feenstra( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every time you buy a can of tuna or a new television, its bar code is scanned to record its price and other information. These "scanner data" offer a number of attractive features for economists and statisticians, because they are collected continuously, are available quickly, and record prices for all items sold, not just a statistical sample. But scanner data also present a number of difficulties for current statistical systems. Scanner Data and Price Indexes assesses both the promise and the challenges of using scanner data to produce economic statistics. Three papers present the
China's growing role in world trade by Robert C Feenstra( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In less than three decades, China has grown from playing a negligible role in world trade to being one of the world's largest exporters, a substantial importer of raw materials, intermediate outputs, and other goods, and both a recipient and source of foreign investment. Not surprisingly, China's economic dynamism has generated considerable attention and concern in the United States and beyond. While some analysts have warned of the potential pitfalls of China's rise - the loss of jobs, for example - others have highlighted the benefits of less expensive goods and services purchased by U.S. consumers along with new market and investment opportunities for U.S. firms. Bringing together an expert group of contributors, "China's Growing Role in World Trade" undertakes an empirical investigation of the effects of China's new status. The essays collected here provide detailed analyses of the microstructure of trade, the macroeconomic implications, sector-level issues, and foreign direct investment. This volume's careful examination of micro data in light of established economic theories eliminates a number of misconceptions, overturns some conventional wisdom, and documents data patterns that enhance our understanding of issues related to China's trade

Globalization in an age of crisis : multilateral economic cooperation in the twenty-first century( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with its painful economic costs, the financial crisis of 2008 raised concerns over the future of international policy making. As in recessions past, new policy initiatives emerged, approaches that placed greater importance on protecting national interests than promoting international economic cooperation. Whether in fiscal or monetary policies, the control of currencies and capital flows, the regulation of finance, or the implementation of protectionist policies and barriers to trade, there has been an almost worldwide trend toward the prioritizing of national economic security. But
Estimating real production and expenditures across nations a proposal for improving the Penn world tables by Robert C Feenstra( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this paper we propose a new approach to international comparisons of real GDP measured from the output-side. The traditional Geary-Khamis system to measure real GDP from the expenditure-side is modified to include differences in the terms of trade between countries. It is shown that this system has a strictly positive solution under mild assumptions. On the basis of a set of domestic final output, import and export prices and values for 14 European countries and the U.S. it is shown that differences between real GDP measured from the expenditure and output-side can be substantial, especially for small open economies"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site
