Market structure and market access by Joseph F Francois ( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 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

Multinational firms : easy come, easy go? by Jan I Haaland ( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is often argued that countries with more flexible labor markets are better placed in attracting inward investment from multunational firms (MNEs). This is an issue when there is uncertainty in the marketplace and the firm faces some risk of closure of its branch plant. We study the MNE's location choice, explicitly taking into account exit, as well as entry, costs. We show that worker protection, through lay-off rules, deters potential investment in risky industries. Using evidence on MNE investment in Eastern Europe, we find support for our prediction that labor-market flexibility makes a location more attractive to the MNE."--Editor

Does public governance always matter? : how experience of poor institutional quality influences FDI to the south by Julia Darby ( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 25 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

The gains from preferential tax regimes reconsidered by Carl Gaigné ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The EU policy against harmful tax competition aims at eliminating tax policies targeted at attracting the internationally mobile tax base. We examine this issue by considering two countries which decide their corporate tax rates their tax regimes (discriminatory or non-discriminatory tax policy). Firms produce under imperfect competition and trade between countries is costly. The endogenous spatial allocation of mobile firms depends upon different parameters of the economy while the distribution of immobile firms is exogenous. We show that countries discriminate against immobile firms when trade costs are high. Trade integration makes imposing the same tax on all firms more appealing such that, at low trade costs, the unique Nash equilibrium is characterized by uniform corporate taxes being set by both governments. However, when trade costs reach intermediates values, fiscal competition may lead to tax discrimination while uniform taxation is socially preferred
