Does temporary migration have to be permanent? by Mohammad Amin ( )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The choice between temporary and permanent migration is today central to the design of migration policies. The authors draw a distinction between the two types of migration on the basis of the associated social cost and the dynamics of learning by migrants. They find that unilateral migration policies are globally inefficient because they lead to too much permanent migration and too little temporary and overall migration. Existing international agreements on labor mobility, such as the World Trade Organization's General Agreement on Trade in Services, have failed to do better because they seek primarily to induce host countries to make commitments to allow entry. Instead, Pareto gains and more liberal migration could be achieved through multilateral agreements that enable host countries to commit to repatriation." -- Cover verso

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During a period of trade liberalization (1985-89), when Mexican manufacturing experienced an important inflow of foreign direct investment, manufacturing sectors with heavy foreign direct investment received greater protection in import-competing sectors.

A survey of more than 50 empirical papers shows that the adjustment costs of trade liberalization are small relative to the benefits. Moreover, manufacturing employment typically increases with trade liberalization. The limited data suggests that trade liberalization reduces poverty

Foreign-owned capital and endogenous tariffs by M Olarreaga ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The increase in investment abroad during the past two decades may help explain the simultaneous worldwide rush toward free trade. The entry of foreign capital may change the political game, increasing openness to international trade no matter what form the foreign capital takes (whether entering by acquiring equity in existing domestic firms or by bringing foreign firms into the host economy) or what its trade orientation (whether it enters the export or import-competing sector)
Eliminating excessive tariffs on exports of least developed countries by Bernard M Hoekman ( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Average most-favored-nation tariffs in the "Quad" (Canada, the European Union, Japan, and the United States) have fallen to about 5 percent. But tariffs more than three times the average most-favored-nation duty are not uncommon in the Quad and have a disproportionate effect on exports of least developed countries. Giving the poorest countries duty-free access for peak-tariff products would increase their total annual exports by roughly $2.5 billion
The role of special and differential treatment for developing countries in GATT and the World Trade Organization by Constantine Michalopoulos ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Weaknesses in the institutional capacity of many developing countries provide a rationale for continuing special and differential treatment under the World Trade Organization (WTO), but the benefits should be targeted only to low-income developing countries and those that need help becoming integrated with the international trading system. An effective system of graduation should be put in place for higher-income developing countries

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How important to welfare and growth in developing countries are restraints on foreign providers of producer services? Limiting such services not only may limit growth but may hurt some of the very people - domestic skilled workers in such service sectors - those restraints are designed to protect
Can duty-drawbacks have a protectionist bias? evidence from Mercosur by Olivier Cadot ( )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Evidence from Mercosur suggests that eliminating duty drawbacks for intra-regional exports would lead to increased counterlobbying against protection of intermediate products. Without the duty drawback, the common external tariff would have been an estimated 3.5 percentage points (25 percent) higher on average

Regional integration and development in small states by Maurice W Schiff ( )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Small states should pursue unilateral and multilateral trade liberalization, and members of the African, Caribbean, and Pacifice (ACP) group should expand reciprocal agreements with the European Union (Cotonou Agreement) to the entire OECD. They should intensify South-South regional cooperation in the area of regional public goods

The unprecedented globalization of the production process, dividing up the value chain, has brought the integration of trade and the disintegration of production, with deep implications for the international division of labor.

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Country size matters in determining the effectiveness of domestic and foreign competition on pricing behavior in manufacturing. Removing barriers to entry of new firms reduces markups more in large countries, while removing barriers to imports reduces markups more in small countries
