Accelerating the globalization of America : the role for information technology by Catherine L Mann( )

20 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Information technology (IT) is the most robust sector in the global economy, outpacing investment and trade growth for any other product and also pushing for more globalization of many other industries. Globalization of US IT firms has promoted deeper integration of IT throughout the US economy, which in turn has promoted more extensive globalization in other sectors of the US economy and labor market. Catherine Mann traces the globalization of the industry, its diffusion into the US economy, and the implications of more extensive technology-enabled globalization of products and services."--Jacket
Global electronic commerce : a policy primer by Catherine L Mann( )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A primer on the policy implications of electronic commerce. This study is aimed at policy makers, particularly those from outside the US and Europe, concerned with formulating an appropriate response to e-commerce, to facilitate development, and to avoid being overwhelmed by the globalizing nature of it. It is also suitable for business decision makers unsure of governments' reactions to e-commerce, and over reliant on the assumption the regulators will simply "let the private sector lead" (a common mantra invoked to guide e-commerce governance to date)
Is the U.S. trade deficit sustainable? by Catherine L Mann( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Each chapter presents relevant data and a simple analytical framework as the basis for concise discussions of these major issues. The final section of the book provides an outlook for the deficit and suggests alternative policy courses for dealing with it." "This book is designed for policymakers and others who are interested in the US role in the world economy. It is also suitable for courses in international economics, business, and international affairs."--Jacket

Trade facilitation and economic development : measuring the impact by Catherine L Mann( )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wilson, Mann, and Otsuki analyze the relationship between trade facilitation, trade flows, and GDP per capita in the Asia-Pacific region for the goods sector. They define and measure trade facilitation using four broad indicators. These are constructed using country-specific data for port efficiency, customs environment, regulatory environment, and electronic-business usage. They estimate the relationship between these indicators and trade flows using a gravity model. The model includes tariffs and other standard variables. The authors find that enhanced port efficiency has a large and positive effect on trade. Regulatory barriers deter trade. The results also suggest that improvements in customs and greater electronic-business use significantly expands trade, but to a lesser degree than the effect of ports or regulations. The authors then estimate the benefits of specific trade facilitation efforts by quantifying differential improvement by members of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) in these four areas. Based on a scenario in which APEC members below average improve capacity halfway to the average for all members, the authors find that intra-APEC trade could increase by $254 billion. This represents approximately a 21 percent increase in intra-APEC trade flows, about half coming from improved port efficiencies in the region. Using Dollar and Kraay's estimate of the effect of trade on per capita GDP, these improvements in trade facilitation suggest an increase in APEC average per capita GDP of 4.3 percent. This paper--a product of Trade, Development Research Group--is part of a larger effort in the group to explore the link between trade and development

Information lost (apologies to Milton) by Catherine L Mann( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vast amounts of information result from business and consumer search, communication, and transactions. All this information can enhance market efficiency and consumer surplus as firms tailor products to buyers. But, there is increased risk of information loss. What issues should be on the Digital Agenda with regard to information loss, and what data are available to inform and generate incentives for consumer, business, and policy interactions in the information marketplace? This paper reviews the situation and points out where we need more thought and more data. Topics include: (1) Frameworks for analysis: How should we model the information marketplace, particularly with regard to the benefits and costs of information aggregation and protection? (2) Quantification and data: What is the evidence on the prevalence and nature of information loss, and what are the costs of information loss, and to whom? (3) Market and Policy Response: What do we know about the efficacy of market vs. other approaches to incentivize market participants to avoid loss or remediate after information loss? Throughout, of particular interest is the international dimension of the information marketplace. What issues arise when countries differ in their attitudes and policies toward the information marketplace?
Assessing the potential benefit of trade facilitation : a global perspective by John S Wilson( )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationships between trade facilitation, trade flows, and capacity building are complex and challenging to assess, both empirically and in implementation. Wilson, Mann, and Otsuki measure and estimate the relationship between trade facilitation and trade flows across 75 countries in global trade, considering four important categories: port efficiency, customs environment, regulatory environment, and service sector infrastructure. A gravity model is employed that accounts for bilateral trade flows in manufactured goods in 2000-01 between the 75 countries, using traditional factors such as GDP, distance, language, and trade areas, and is augmented by the trade facilitation measures in the four categories for each country. The results suggest that both imports and exports for a country and for the world will increase with improvements in these trade facilitation measures. Potential gains from trade facilitation reforms are predicted by using the estimated parameters. The gains from trade facilitation are presented by comparing the gains across geographical regions and trade facilitation categories, and by domestic and partner improvements. The total gain in trade flow in manufacturing goods from trade facilitation improvements in all the four areas is estimated to be $377 billion. All regions gain in imports and exports. Most regions gain more in terms of exports than imports, in large part through increasing exports to the OECD market. The most important ingredient in getting these gains, particularly to the OECD market, is the country's own trade facilitation efforts. The detailed presentation of the results of the analysis may help inform policy decisions and capacity building choices. This paper--a joint product of the Transport Unit, Urban Development Department, and Trade, Development Research Group--is part of a larger effort in the Bank to explore the link between trade and development
