The economics of international trade and the environment by Amitrajeet A Batabyal( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Issues related to environmental protection and trade liberalization have moved to the forefront of international policy agendas. The Economics of International Trade and the Environment explores - from an economic standpoint - many of the questions that are germane in increasing our knowledge of environmental policy in the presence of international trade and trade policy in the presence of environmental externalities. Ultimately we must ask "What can economic theory tell us about the connections between environmental and trade policy?" This book uses the tools of game and microeconomic theory to analyze diverse issues such as: the effects of international trade in waste products on illegal disposal, the nature of environmental policy when market structure and plant locations are endogenous, and the issue of ecological dumping. The authors apply economic theory to practical settings to ascertain the extent to which this theory can inform policy decisions about problems at the interface of international trade and the environment

The region and trade : new analytical directions by Amitrajeet A Batabyal( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although international trade has been much studied by both economists and regional scientists, the nature, causes, and the consequences of interregional trade, i.e., trade between regions within countries has received far less attention. In addition, given recent advances in new economic geography on the theoretical front and in the development of both input-output and computable general equilibrium models on the empirical front, the important subject of interregional trade is now open to study using these theoretical and empirical methodologies. Given this state of affairs, this book aims to present chapters written by a carefully selected group of experts in the field and thereby shed valuable light on key outstanding questions concerning the region and trade. These questions include, but are not limited to, the role of external economies in shaping the pattern of interregional trade, the role of natural resources versus traditional factors of production such as labor and capital in driving interregional trade, the relationship between transport and interregional trade, 'high value' interregional trade in services, and the role of interregional trade estimation in the construction of a multi-regional, input-output system.--

Disease, Human Health, and Regional Growth and Development in Asia( )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together new studies on regional disparities in the provision and maintenance of health in Asia. Specifically, the individual chapters shed light on the various health challenges that Asian regions face with regard to environmental health, communicable and non-communicable diseases, reproductive health, and the development of health systems. The book departs from the existing literature on this subject in three ways. First, it explicitly recognizes that health is essential to the daily lives of human beings. Second, it underscores the fact that good health improves learning, employee productivity, and incomes. Third, the book demonstrates the ways in which an understanding of the preceding two points contributes to our grasp of economic growth and development. Because Asia is now the fastest-growing and most dynamic continent in the world, the respective chapters provide practical guidance concerning two key questions: First, how do we effectively address the health challenges in individual regions of Asia? Second, how do we ensure that the proposed health interventions lead to sustainable economic growth and development? To this end, the book emphasizes modeling and illustrates the role that sound empirical modeling can play in developing measures that sustainably address the health challenges confronting disparate Asian regions. All chapters were written by international experts who are active researchers in their respective fields. Hence, this book is highly recommended to all readers seeking an in-depth and up-to-date perspective on some of the most important issues at the interface of human health and regional growth and development in Asia

Dynamic and stochastic resource economics : essays on biodiversity, invasive species, joint systems, and regulation by Amitrajeet A Batabyal( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dynamic and Stochastic Resource Economics : Essays on Biodiversity, Invasive Species, Joint Systems, and Regulation is a collection of Professor Batabyal's previously published and unpublished papers on the subject of natural resource and environmental economics. The book demonstrates how new dynamic and probabilistic techniques can be profitably used to study a whole host of research questions in natural resource management, biological diversity, ecological economics, invasive species management, and environmental regulation. The book collects the results of frontier-level research in many different areas within the general field of natural resource and environmental economics. It also shows how theoretical modeling, frequently using techniques that are unfamiliar to economists, can be gainfully utilized to shed new light on a whole host of issues, some of which have not been modeled previously in a comprehensive manner. Finally, this book draws connections between the different areas that are covered so as to provide a common methodological approach to research questions and a unified perspective on the key issues in natural resource and environmental economics."--Cover

Favoritism in the public provision of goods in developing countries by Amitrajeet A Batabyal( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goods are often allocated publically by means of queuing processes in developing countries.In such situations, which group of citizens should a corrupt government official favor? In addition,what should be the basis for this favoritism? To the best of our knowledge, these salient questionshave received scant attention in the literature. Consequently, we use queuing theory to firstdemonstrate that when allocating goods publically, a case can be made for favoring a particular groupof citizens. Next, we show that the nature of this favoritism depends not only on the bribes receivedby the corrupt government official but also on the efficiency with which this official discharges hisduties

A Schumpeterian model of entrepreneurship, innovation, and regional economic growth by Amitrajeet A Batabyal( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We provide the first theoretical analysis of a one sector, discrete time, Schumpeterian model of growth in a regional economy in which consumers are risk neutral, there is no population growth, monopolistic entrepreneurs produce intermediate goods, and a single consumption good is produced competitively. Our analysis generates several new results. In the deterministic model, R&D in time surely leads to an innovation in time In this setting, we show that relative to the balanced growth path (BGP) equilibrium, the social planner always allocates more labor to R&D and hence achieves a larger size of innovation and a higher growth rate. Next, in the stochastic model, R&D in time probabilistically leads to an innovation in time In this setting, we first define the equilibrium and the steady state BGP allocations. Second, we generalize the notion of the steady state and determine the number of unemployed workers. Third, we show that our regional economy experiences bursts of unemployment followed by periods of full employment. Finally, we show that a decline in the time discount rate increases the average growth rate and the average unemployment.

Essays in the economics of invasive species management by Amitrajeet A Batabyal( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is no doubt that the phenomenon we now call globalization has brought many benefits to the citizens of our heterogeneous world. Inter alia, this phenomenon has resulted in the increased mobility of humans, goods, and services from one part of the world to another. International trade in both final goods and services and in various factors of production has risen, and this rise has generally seen the welfare improving for all the involved parties. This rise in international trade in particular and of mobility more generally has also led to the spread of all manner of animals, plants, and other organisms from places where they are native to new locales, where they are not. As noted by Vitousek et al. (1997), Mooney (1999), and others, it is salient to comprehend that although this movement and spread of animal and plant species from one part of the world to another predates the modern era of globalization, the phenomenon of globalization has accelerated this mobility. Animal and plant species that have moved from a part of the world where they are native to another part of the world where they are not are said to be invasive species. Such species are also referred to as 'alien,' as 'exotic,' and as 'non-native' species. For the purpose of consistency, we shall use the term 'invasive,' in this chapter. Olson (2006) points out that this movement of animal and plant species can occur naturally, as a result of specific ecological processes or as a result of deliberate human activity. In addition, even if we restrict attention to invasive species introductions that are the result of conscious human activity, such introductions can be either intentional or unintentional in nature. Humans have been intentionally introducing animal and plant species into parts of the world where they are not native, for many decades. These intentional introductions broadly fall into two categories. The first category consists of introductions that are largely ornamental in nature. Exotic pets such as fish, parrots, and all manner of orchids readily come to mind. The second category is made up of introductions that form the basis of what is now known as biological control. The basic objective here is to use a specific animal or plant species that is a predator of another prey species whose population is sought to be controlled. McConnachie et al. (2003) review ten benefit-cost studies of biological control programs and note that such programs can be very successful. However, the work of Nogales et al. (2004) shows that biological control programs can also go awry and give rise to unintended consequences. Most countries today have protocols for dealing with the intentional introductions of invasive species, although it should not go unsaid that the quality and the effectiveness of these protocols vary considerably."--Inside book jacket
