11 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stochastic equilibrium and exchange rate determination in a small open economy with risk averse optimizing agents by Earl L Grinols ( Book )
7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper constructs a stochastic general equilibrium model of a small open economy consisting of risk averse optimizing agents. The stochastic processes describing the rate of monetary growth, government expenditure, private production, and the foreign price level are taken to be exogenous, determining all asset risks and returns, and the equilibrium stochastic processes describing the domestic inflation rate and the exchange rate. The model is used to examine a number of issues. These include: (i) the effects of the means and variances of policy shocks on the equilibrium; (ii) the determinants of the foreign exchange risk premium; (iii) the relationship between net export instability and economic growth

Regional and interregional economic effects of the Free Trade Agreement between the United States and Canada by Ricardo Costa Gazel ( )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Even before the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the U.S. and Canada came into force on January 1, 1989, a substantial body of literature had been assembled on the future agreement and its likely economic effects on both countries. Despite the large number of studies in both countries, there had been no systematic attempt to measure the FTA effects at the regional level. Unfortunately, regional effects of national and international policies such as trade liberalization have been perceived as less important than the measurement of the same effects at the national level. This study focuses attempts to rectify this situation by focusing on the different effects that national and international trade policies have on distinctive regions within a country by modeling the impact of the FTA regionally using an applied general equilibrium approach. The economic effects due to the FTA are presented by region (four in the U.S. and Canada), highlighting the changes in macroeconomic aggregates such as total income as well as the changes in the level of production of the different sectors in the economy, thus separating gainers and losers in each region. This study also incorporates interregional labor migration within the U.S. The results presented in this study show the need for more careful evaluation of the economic impact of national and international policies at the regional level
The economics of parallel markets for foreign exchange and illegal trade : focus on Tanzania by Richard Elias Mshomba ( )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This thesis is divided into six chapters. Chapter 1 discusses incentives for smuggling and chapter 2 presents the Tanzanian institutional setting. Chapter 3 presents a smuggling model which links the smuggling of goods with the parallel markets for foreign exchange. We describe an economy with two regions, one accessible to smuggling and the other not. The economy produces three goods, a pure export crop, an import good, and a non-traded good. There are three factors of production: labor, which is mobile, and capital and land, which are sector- and region-specific. Our smuggling model explicitly shows price disparity can occur in the region with smuggling, even when smuggling occurs solely through unofficial channels. Our model also shows smuggling causes the traded goods to have different prices in the two regions. Chapter 4 estimates the quantity of coffee smuggled from northern Tanzania into Kenya. Our results suggest that about 12 percent of the arabica coffee (or an annual average of 3800 metric tons) produced in northern Tanzania between 1969 and 1985 was smuggled into Kenya. The annual average value of the estimated volume of coffee smuggled is about 8 million dollars. Chapter 5 places the smuggling model in a computable general equilibrium framework. The framework is used to analyze the impact of changes in trade taxes on inter-regional migration of labor and the magnitude of smuggling. Chapter 6 uses the general equilibrium framework to show how decreases in trade taxes increase economic welfare in both regions. This chapter also considers the policy of simultaneously giving producers of export crops farm input subsidies and taxing their exports. The discussion questions the logic of this policy where the government wants to reduce smuggling. It also challenges the notion that the so-called farm input subsidies are actually subsidies to farmers and raises the question whether they are not, instead, disguised subsidies from farmers to producers of inputs
Politics, the WTO and trade disputes : evidence from US cases by Earl L Grinols ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Do political variables play a significant role in trade disputes and does the World Trade Organization (WTO) ameliorate disputation? This paper uses US data to assess the role of the WTO and political variables in trade disputes. The data suggest that political factors are significant in the initiation of trade disputes and in their length of adjudication. The WTO disputes that require the formation of adjudication panels take fewer months to complete than under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade system, but overall the WTO appears not to play a significant role in reducing the number of disputes or shortening their duration
The Arc Models by Mike Fulmer ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Arc Models are a set of three-dimensional, dynamic CGI representations of the primary pedagogical models of international trade theory. By characterizing economies according to their manufacturing, service, and agricultural/natural resource sectors, the Arc Models present a novel approach to teaching trade theory by either focusing in on a single economy or altering the scale of observation to an economic grouping of world economies. The Arc Models are a collection of true, dynamic models in that they have the ability to capture the inter-temporal transitions between static equilibria using 3D animation. The diagrams and models that have been treated include: market supply and demand, the Ricardian model of comparative advantage, world production in the Ricardian model, the Ricardian fixed factor model, the Ricardian continuum of goods model, offer curves; the standard trade model, the Heckscher-Ohlin model including Findlay-Grubert diagrams, the 3-Factor model, and the specific-factors model
