Trade policies for international competitiveness by Robert C Feenstra( )

16 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Is the United States truly lagging in its ability to compete effectively in world markets? 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( )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and held by 1,777 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( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book assesses both the promise and the challenges of using scanner data to produce economic statistics. Three chapters present the results of work in progress at statistical agencies in the U.S., United Kingdom, and Canada, including a project at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to investigate the feasibility of incorporating scanner data into the monthly Consumer Price Index. Other chapters demonstrate the enormous potential of using scanner data to test economic theories and estimate the parameters of economic models, and provide solutions for some of the problems that arise when using scanner data, such as dealing with missing data
The political economy of trade policy : papers in honor of Jagdish Bhagwati by Robert C Feenstra( )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,349 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
China's growing role in world trade by Robert C Feenstra( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,032 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
Advanced international trade : theory and evidence by Robert C Feenstra( Book )

37 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Feenstra steps beyond theory to consider empirical evidence as well. He covers all the basic material including the Ricardian and Hecksher-Ohlin models, extension to many goods and factors, and the role of tariffs, quotas, and other trade policies, recent material including imperfect competition, outsourcing, political economy, multinationals, and endogenous growth; and new material including the gravity equation and the organization of the firm in international trade."--Jacket
Product variety and the gains from international trade by Robert C Feenstra( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a brilliant exploration of the implications of recent theories of international trade for one of the most important questions in the field: how large are the gains from trade? Feenstra takes the models apart to shed light on the basic mechanisms at play and then masterfully uses the data to understand their quantitative significance."--AndrTs Rodriquez-Clare, Professor of Economics, Pennsylvania State University -- Book Jacket
Emergent economies, divergent paths : economic organization and international trade in South Korea and Taiwan by Robert C Feenstra( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economies of South Korea and Taiwan in the second half of the twentieth century are to scholars of economic development what the economy of Britain in the late eighteenth and early nineteeth centuries is to economic historians. This book, first published in 2006, is a collaboration between a leading trade economist and a leading economic sociologist specializing in East Asia, and offers an explanation of the development paths of post-World War II Korea and Taiwan. The ambitions of the authors go beyond this, however. They use these cases to reshape the way economists, sociologists, and political scientists will think about economic organization in the future. They offer nothing less than a theory of, and extended evidence for, how capitalist economies become organized. One of the principal empirical findings is that a primary cause for the industrialization of East Asia is the retail revolution in the United States and the demand-responsiveness of Asian manufacturers

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 271 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
