Exploring Lebanon's Growth Prospects by Jean-Claude Berthélemy( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper attempts to identify Lebanon's greatest constraints to economic growth, following a growth diagnosis approach. It concludes that fiscal imbalances and barriers to entry are most binding on long-term growth. Macroeconomic imbalances and related perceived risks affect the nature of investment decisions in Lebanon, in favor of liquid instruments rather than longer-term productive investments. Further, many barriers to entry discourage agents from investing in a number of markets: legal impediments to competition, corruption, and a set of fiscal incentives favoring the allocation of resources to non-tradable sectors, where potential demand and investment opportunities are scarcer. In turn, using a steady-state computable general equilibrium model, the paper assesses the long-term growth impact of a selected set of policy reforms envisaged to lift such constraints. Results suggest that 1 to 2 percentage points of additional GDP growth per year could be gained through public expenditure reform, greater domestic competition, and tax harmonization
Migration and education decisions in a dynamic general equilibrium framework by Sébastien Dessus( )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With growing international skilled labor mobility, education and migration decisions have become increasingly inter-related, and potentially have a large impact on the growth trajectories of source countries, through their effects on labor supply, savings, or the cost of education. The authors develop a generic dynamic general equilibrium model to analyze the education-migration nexus in a consistent framework. They use the model as a laboratory to test empirical conditions for the existence of net brain gain, that is, greater domestic accumulation of human capital (in per capita terms) with greater migration of skilled workers. The results suggest that although some structural parameters can favor simultaneously greater human capital accumulation and greater skilled migration - such as high ratio of remittances over domestic incomes, high dependency ratios in migrant households, low dependency ratios in source countries, increasing returns to scale in the education sector, technological transfers and export market access with Diasporas, and efficient financial markets - this does not necessarily mean that greater migration encourages the constitution of greater stocks of human capital in source countries

Abstract: With growing international skilled labor mobility, education and migration decisions have become increasingly inter-related, and potentially have a large impact on the growth trajectories of source countries, through their effects on labor supply, savings, or the cost of education. The authors develop a generic dynamic general equilibrium model to analyze the education-migration nexus in a consistent framework. They use the model as a laboratory to test empirical conditions for the existence of net brain gain, that is, greater domestic accumulation of human capital (in per capita terms) with greater migration of skilled workers. The results suggest that although some structural parameters can favor simultaneously greater human capital accumulation and greater skilled migration - such as high ratio of remittances over domestic incomes, high dependency ratios in migrant households, low dependency ratios in source countries, increasing returns to scale in the education sector, technological transfers and export market access with Diasporas, and efficient financial markets - this does not necessarily mean that greater migration encourages the constitution of greater stocks of human capital in source countries
L'économie libanaise et ses déséquilibres( )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'article montre comment le jeu des logiques financières s'impose à l'économie réelle et contribue à développer une rationalité économique moins intéressée par la production de valeur que par la captation de richesses monétaires. Après avoir dégagé les principales caractéristiques d'une économie à la fois tournée vers l'extérieur et faiblement productive, qui s'apparente dans ses fondements à un système de rente, l'analyse montre que les modalités de fonctionnement de ce système affectent profondément les comportements économiques et politiques et provoquent également de graves distorsions dans l'allocation des facteurs de production, au risque de marginaliser des pans entiers de la population et de n'intégrer que ceux qui seront en position de profiter de cette situation de rente.--SCAD summary
