Economic geography and public policy by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

19 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economic Geography and Public Policy illustrates many new policy insights economic geography models can offer to the realm of theoretical policy analysis. Focusing primarily on trade policy, tax policy, and regional policy, Richard Baldwin and coauthors show how these models can be used to make sense of real-world situations. The book provides much fresh analysis but also synthesizes insights from the existing literature. It is essential reading for graduate students, researchers, and policymakers seeking new approaches to spatial policy issues."--Jacket

Using theoretical techniques to report results and insights, this book not only sheds light on the consequences of Austria, Finland and Sweden joining the
Multilateralizing regionalism by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Regional trade agreements (RTAs) have proliferated around the world in the past two decades, and now nearly all members of the WTO are party to at least one. Besides tariffs and rules of origin regulating trade in goods, many RTAs now include provisions on services, investments, technical barriers to trade and competition rules, as well as a host of issues not directly related to trade. The geographic reach of RTAs is expanding, with transcontinental agreements spreading forcefully alongside intra-regional agreements. "Multilateralizing Regionalism" was the title of a major conference held from 10-12 September 2007 at the WTO in Geneva. Together, the conference papers achieve two things. First, they marshall detailed, new empirical work on the nature of the "Spaghetti Bowl" and the problems it poses for the multilateral trade system. Second, they contribute fresh and creative thinking on how to "tame the angle" of regional trade agreements
Dynamic issues in applied commercial policy analysis by Dynamic issues in applied commercial policy analysis( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dynamic Issues in Commercial Policy Analysis focuses on the explicit specification of dynamic mechanisms in the formal analytics of trade models. A wide range of modelling approaches is employed to investigate an even wider range of policy issues, with an overall objective of further extension of the basic conceptual framework of applied commercial policy analysis in the direction of dynamic issues and applications." "Dynamic Issues in Commercial Policy Analysis will be a standard reference for anyone interested in the assessment of international trade and investment policy and the applied study of the dynamic implications of trade policy."--Jacket
The shape of a Swiss-US free trade agreement by Gary Clyde Hufbauer( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At first sight, a free trade agreement (FTA) between Switzerland and the United States seems implausible, but this new study concludes that an FTA between the two countries would be highly worthwhile to both. As leading advocates of market capitalism, Switzerland and the United States are well situated to conclude an FTA that breaks new ground in dismantling barriers. The study finds that the annual GDP gains to each partner from expanded trade could be on the order of $1.1 billion."--BOOK JACKET

14 editions published in 2003 in 4 languages and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation into how the Euro has affected trade, financial markets, macroeconomic policy making and Europe's economic performance since it came into operation in January 1999
Trade-induced investment-led growth by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

40 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents five theoretical openness-and-growth links that can account for trade-induced investment-led growth. The links are all demonstrated with neoclassical growth models developed in the context of trade models that allow for imperfect competition and scale economies. This sort of old-growth-theory-in-a-new-trade-model has not been thoroughly explored in the literature since the profession skipped from old-growth-old-trade models straight to new-growth-new- trade models. Nonetheless, such models are necessary to explain several key aspects of the econometric evidence on trade and growth. For example, cross-country data suggests that openness influences growth only via its effect on investment, and suggests that openness promotes investment in all countries whatever the capital-intensive of their exports (contrary to predictions of the old-growth-old-trade models)
In or out : does it matter? : an evidence-based analysis of the Euro's trade effects by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report marshals the best available empirical evidence on the size and nature of the euro's pro-trade effects and groups the policy implications of these findings into two broad categories - lessons for potential joiners; and lessons for the euro area's current members and its economic management."--Jacket
Economic impact of EU membership on entrants : new methods and issues by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume centres on the issues surrounding the likely economic impact that EU membership has on joining nations, with the main emphasis on new issues and methods. Given the significantly greater level of economic integration that now exists in the EU, accession brings up a host of issues that either did not arise or were of secondary importance during earlier enlargement waves. For instance, EU membership now entails eventual membership in the monetary union. This raises a series of new issues such as interest rate convergence, exchange rate stability and the loss of sovereignty over monetary policy. Additionally, these macro issues interact with micro issues such as export performance, capital formation and foreign direct investment (FDI). Migration, unemployment and foreign direct investment are further issues that acquire a magnified importance for the prospective entrants. All of these questions are treated in the contributions in Economic Impact of EU Membership on Entrants: New Methods and Issues that should be of particular interest to academics as well as decisionmakers in prospective member countries. Richard E. Baldwin worked for the Institute of International Studies. He was a Senior Staff Economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisors in the Bush Administration (1990-1991) and has advised the European Commission on several integration issues. He has also worked in the past for the European Commission, EFTA, the OECD, the FCO, the World Bank, USAID and UNCTAD. From 1991 to 2001 he was Co-Director of the International Trade Programme of the Centre for Economic Policy Research. His areas of specialisations are international trade, regional integration, and economic geography. Before coming to Geneva in May 1991, he was a professor at Columbia University Business School, having done his PhD in economics at MIT, an MSc at LSE, and a first degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Aymo Brunetti is Head of Economic Analysis in the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs of the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Switzerland. In addition, he is Professor of Economics at the University of Basel and teaches at the University of Bern, Switzerland
East Asian economic regionalism : feasibilities and challenges by Ch'ung-yŏng An( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"East Asian Economic Regionalism attempts to analyze the feasibilities of economic integration in East Asia and to discuss emerging economic integration efforts in East Asia with special reference to an East Asian FTA. Although economic integration is desirable economically, positions and approaches of each regional economy toward East Asian economic integration may differ depending on the circumstances of the countries concerned. East Asian Economic Regionalism provides diverse positions on East Asian economic integration by ASEAN countries, as well as the Northeastern countries of China, Japan and Korea. The volume also provides economic assessment of EAFTA and evaluates East Asian economic integration. East Asian Economic Regionalism may be the first book on East Asian economic integration with positions toward economic integration of major players in the region."--Jacket

Agglomeration and endogenous capital by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new' economic geography focuses on the footloose-labor and the vertically-linked-industries models. Both are complex since they feature demand-linked and cost-linked agglomeration forces. I present a simpler model where agglomeration stems from demand-linked forces arising from endogenous capital with forward-looking agents. The model's simplicity permits many analytic results (rare in economic geography). Trade-cost levels that trigger catastrophic agglomeration are identified analytically, liberalization between almost equal-sized nations is shown to entail near-catastrophic' agglomeration, and Krugman's informal stability test is shown to be equivalent to formal tests in a fully specified dynamic model
Global income divergence, trade and industrialization : the geography of growth take-offs by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

21 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper takes a step towards formalizing the theoretical interconnections among four post-Industrial Revolution phenomena - the industrialization and growth take-off of rich northern' nations, massive global income divergence, and rapid trade expansion. Specifically, we present a stages-of-growth model in which the four phenomena are jointly endogenous and all are triggered by a gradual fall in the cost of doing business internationally. In the first stage, while trade costs are high, industry is dispersed and growth is low. In the second stage, the north industrializes rapidly, growth takes off and the south diverges. In the third stage, high growth becomes self sustaining. The model shows under which conditions, in a fourth stage, the south can quickly industrialize and converge
Multiproduct multinationals and reciprocal FDI dumping by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

20 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global pattern of foreign direct investment (FDI) is quite similar to the world trade pattern. In particular, intraindustry FDI between rich nations is almost as pervasive as intraindustry trade among rich nations. In the standard' MNC model (of Markusen, Venables, Brainard, and others), FDI is driven by a tradeoff between proximity and scale, so firms typically supply the foreign market via exports or via FDI. The close correlation of two-way trade and investment flows is therefore difficult to explain with the standard model. We propose a model of multiproduct MNCs where firms simultaneously engage in intraindustry FDI and intraindustry trade
Agglomeration, integration and tax harmonization by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We show that agglomeration forces can reverse standard international-tax-competition results. Closer integration may result first in a race to the top' and then a race to the bottom, a result that is consistent with recent empirical work showing that the tax gap between rich and poor nations follows a bell-shaped path (Devereux, Griffith and Klemm 2002). Moreover, split-the-difference tax harmonization can make both nations worse off. This may help explain why tax harmonisation which is Pareto improving in the standard model is so difficult in the real world. The key theoretical insight is that agglomeration forces create quasi-rents that can be taxed without inducing delocation. This suggests that the tax game is something subtler than a race to the bottom. Advanced 'core' nations may act like limit-pricing monopolists toward less advanced 'periphery' countries. Since agglomeration rents are a bell-shaped function of the level of integration, the equilibrium tax gap in our tax game is also bell shaped
