Market Structure And Market Access by Joseph F Francois( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine an issue at the nexus of domestic competition policy and international trade, the interaction between goods trade and market power in domestic trade and distribution sectors. Theory suggests a set of linkages between service-sector competition and goods trade supported by econometrics involving imports of 22 OECD countries compared with 69 exporters. Competition in services affects the volume of goods trade. Additionally, because of interaction between tariffs and competition, the market structure of the domestic service sector becomes increasingly important as tariffs are reduced. Empirically service competition apparently matters most for exporters in smaller, poorer countries. The results also suggest that while negotiated agreements leading to cross-border services liberalization may boost goods trade as well, they may also lead to a fall in goods trade when such liberalization involves foreign direct investment leading to increased service sector concentration
Regional tax coordination and foreign direct investment by Andreas Haufler( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper analyses the effects of a regionally coordinated corporate income tax in a model with three active countries, one of which is not part of the union, and a globally mobile firm. We show that regional tax coordination can lead to two types of welfare gain. First, for investments that would take place in the union in the absence of coordination, a coordinated tax increase can transfer location rents from the firm to the union. Second, by internalising all of the union's benefits from foreign direct investment, a coordinated tax reduction can attract more welfare-enhancing investment than when member states act in isolation. Depending on which motive dominates, tax levels may thus rise or fall under regional coordination

Tax competition for foreign direct investment by Andreas Haufler( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We analyze tax competition between two countries of unequal size trying to attract a foreign-owned monopolist. When regional governments have only a lump-sum profit tax (subsidy) at their disposal, but face exogenous and identical transport costs for imports, then both countries will always offer to subsidize the firm. Furthermore, the maximum subsidy is greater in the larger region. However, if countries are given an additional instrument of either a tariff or a consumption tax, then the larger country will no longer underbid its smaller rival and its best offer may involve a positive profit tax. In both cases the equilibrium outcome is that the firm locates in the larger market, paying a profit tax that is increasing in the relative size of this market and which is made greater when the tariff (consumption tax) instrument is permitted
Economic geography and the fiscal effects of regional integration by Rodney D Ludema( Book )

Does public governance always matter? : how experience of poor institutional quality influences FDI to the south by Julia Darby( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates whether the higher prevalence of South multinational enterprises (MNEs) in risky developing countries may be explained by the experience that they have acquired of poor institutional quality at home. We confirm the intuitions provided by our analytical model by empirically showing that the positive impact of good public governance on foreign direct investment (FDI) in a given host country is moderated significantly, and even in some cases eliminated or reversed, when MNEs have had prior experience of poor institutional quality at home. In contrast, MNEs with little experience are deterred much more by bad public governance conditions than could have been inferred from an unconditional estimation of the effects of public governance on FDI

Trade in international transport services : the role of competition by Joseph F Francois( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are concerned with trade in transport services (not cabotage butrather international shipping, transport,and related logistical services) and the importance of competitionand market structure in the sector. Weexamine implications of liberalization for profits, trade, andnational gains from trade. Though past GATSmaritime negotiations involved the maritime nations, we also flaginterests of consuming nations(particularly poorer developing countries). We further illustrateissues raised in the analytical sectionthrough a computational example, to provide a rough sense of ordersof magnitude and the importance of theissues raised for basic gains from improved market access

Market structure, trade liberalization, and the GATS by Joseph F Francois( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we examine the interaction between the different modesof market access commitments inservices (cross-border and establishment) market structure, andregulation. In this context, we focus on theimpact of improved domestic market access for a foreign serviceprovider on a domestic service market. Wework with a model where the domestic industry is assumed to beimperfectly competitive and, as a result ofdomestic regulation, able to act as a cartel. We also examine theincentives for the domestic firms toaccommodate the entry of the foreign firm by inviting it to join thecartel

Anti-dumping jumping : reciprocal anti-dumping and industrial location by Jan I Haaland( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anti-dumping policies are often justified as legitimate actions by governments in their efforts to protect domestic producers from unfair foreign competition. We investigate the impact of anti-dumping rules on firms' production decisions as to how much and where to produce. Anti-dumping measures may have unforeseen effects if they induce direct foreign investment and consequently increase domestic competition. We therefore focus on location choice and consider the strategies of national governments attempting to advance the interests of their citizens through anti-dumping legislation. Our analysis also has implications for the effects of market integration policies, such as Europe 1992

Market structure in services and market access in goods by Joseph F Francois( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine interaction between trade in goods and market power in domestic trade and distribution, developing a model that highlights this interaction. Theory points to an expected linkage between service sector competition and goods trade, one supported by econometrics involving import patterns of 21 OECD countries vis-à-vis 86 trading partners. This points to significant linkages between effective market access conditions for goods and the structure of the service sector. Because of the implied interaction, ignoring the structure of the domestic service sector may lead to a substantial underestimation of the direct impact of tariffs on trade flows
A race beyond the bottom the nature of bidding for a firm by Taiji Furusawa( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine how the bidding environment may affect the outcome of tax competition between two countries (or two regions) in attracting a firm's foreign direct investment (FDI).We compare the equilibrium location choice and payoffs from an English auction, with both complete and incomplete information, relative to those in the traditional setting of a sealed-bid first-price auction. We find that an English auction leads to more aggressive bidding in 'race beyond the bottom,' where the nations may bid beyond their own valuations of the FDI. We also discuss the roles of auction protocol and information asymmetry on the auction outcome
Competition for firms in an oligopolistic industry do firms or countries have to pay? ; presented at CESifo Area Conference on Public Sector Economics, April 2007 by Andreas Haufler( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We set up a model of generalised oligopoly where two countries of different size compete for an exogenous, but variable, number of identical firms. The model combines a desire by national governments to attract internationally mobile firms with the existence of location rents that arise even in a symmetric equilibrium where firms are dispersed. As economic integration proceeds, equilibrium taxes decline, switching from positive to negative levels, and then rise as trade costs fall even further. A range of trade costs is identified where economic integration raises the welfare of the small country, but lowers welfare in the large country
