Economic geography and public policy by Richard E Baldwin( )

29 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,122 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

The great convergence : information technology and the new globalization by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

20 editions published between 2012 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between 1820 and 1990, the share of world income going to today's wealthy nations soared from twenty percent to almost seventy. Since then, that share has plummeted to where it was in 1900. As Richard Baldwin explains, this reversal of fortune reflects a new age of globalization that is drastically different from the old. In the 1800s, globalization leaped forward when steam power and international peace lowered the costs of moving goods across borders. This triggered a self-fueling cycle of industrial agglomeration and growth that propelled today's rich nations to dominance. That was the Great Divergence. The new globalization is driven by information technology, which has radically reduced the cost of moving ideas across borders. This has made it practical for multinational firms to move labor-intensive work to developing nations. But to keep the whole manufacturing process in sync, the firms also shipped their marketing, managerial, and technical know-how abroad along with the offshored jobs. The new possibility of combining high tech with low wages propelled the rapid industrialization of a handful of developing nations, the simultaneous deindustrialization of developed nations, and a commodity super-cycle that is only now petering out. The result is today's Great Convergence. Because globalization is now driven by fast-paced technological change and the fragmentation of production, its impact is more sudden, more selective, more unpredictable, and more uncontrollable. As The Great Convergence shows, the new globalization presents rich and developing nations alike with unprecedented policy challenges in their efforts to maintain reliable growth and social cohesion.--
East Asian economic regionalism : feasibilities and challenges by Choong Yong Ahn( )

17 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 737 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
Market integration, regionalism and the global economy by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study of the nature and the policy implication of changes in the global economy in relationship to the process of regional integration, conducted using the newest techniques of economic analysis. The principal message drawn from these analytical and policy insights is that in a world characterised by trade distortions and nonlinearities, regional integration may or may not foster global integration, and may or may not advance regional or global convergence. The key is good economic policy based on sound economic analysis. Part one of the volume covers three international trade policy issues: regionalism and multilateralism; the political economy of trade policy; and trade income inequality. Part two (chapters 7-11) focuses on three 'domestic' problems faced by regional groups: labour migration; exchange rate arrangements; and real convergence

Expanding membership of the European Union by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

27 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compelling volume, from the Centre for Economic Policy Research, examines the discussion surrounding expansion of the European Union (EU). The contributors address the key issues in the debate, including the implications of expansion for the global trading system, enlargement-related pressures to reform EU decision-making, and the economic consequences of membership for entrants. 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 )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 351 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 )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 237 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
Economic impact of EU membership on entrants : new methods and issues by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of its EU strategy, the Swiss government commissioned several research projects covering the most important aspects of economic integration. Given the interesting results and the wealth of methods used in these studies we decided to organize a conference on the topic of 'The Economic Impact of EU Membership on Entrants: New Methods and Issues". The idea was to use the work on Switzerland as a case study for discussing modern approaches on how to assess the economic effects of joining an integration zone. This seemed to us to be a topic of considerable interest for the rising number of prospective EU-member countries. The response was very favourable with many eminent scholars agreeing to contribute. The conference took place in Lausanne, Switzerland in October 1999 and the papers submitted together with the discussions are published in this volume. We would like to acknowledge the financial support of the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs and to thank the University of Lausanne for providing the venue facilities for the conference. Many persons helped in the preparation of the conference and this volume but we would like to especially mention Marc Surchat who provided substantial input for the conference and Walter Brodmann who very efficiently reviewed and finalized the manuscript.

The shape of a Swiss-US free trade agreement by Gary Clyde Hufbauer( Book )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 204 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."--Jacket

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
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 162 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
Agglomeration and endogenous capital by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

24 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 155 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 146 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 )

23 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 141 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
The core-periphery model and endogenous growth : stabilising and destabilising integration by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally seen only in terms of trade costs, many aspects of economic integration are more naturally viewed as lowering the cost of trading information rather than goods, i.e. as reducing the extent to which learning externalities are localised. Raising learning spillovers is stabilising, so integration may encourage geographic dispersion (the traditional result is that integration tends to encourage agglomeration). This may be useful for evaluating real-world regional policies e.g. subsidisation of universities, technical colleges and high-technology industrial parks in disadvantaged regions that are aimed at combating the localisation of learning externalities. Finally we show that agglomeration of industry is favourable to growth and that this growth effect can mitigate, but not reverse, losses suffered by residents of the periphery when catastrophic agglomeration occurs
The core-periphery model with forward-looking expectations by Richard E Baldwin( Book )

20 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 'core-periphery model' is vitiated by its assumption of static expectations. That is, migration (inter-regional or intersectoral) is the key to agglomeration, but migrants base their decision on current wage differences alone--even though migration predictably alters wages and workers are (implicitly) infinitely lived. The assumption was necessary for analytic tractability. The model can have multiple stable equilibria, so allowing forward-looking expectations would have forced consideration of the very difficult perhaps even intractable issues of global stability in non-linear dynamic systems. This paper's main contribution is to present a set of solution techniques partly analytic and partly numerical that allow us to consider forward-looking expectations. These techniques reveal a startling result. If quadratic migration costs are sufficiently high, allowing forward-looking behaviour has no impact on the main results, so static expectations are truly an assumption of convenience. If migration costs are lower, however, forward-looking behaviour creates history-vs-expectations considerations. In this case self-fulfilling prophecy
