Governance, regulation, and privatization in the Asia-Pacific Region by Takatoshi Itō( )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Over the last twenty-five years, there has been an acceleration in the move from government regulation towards privatization. Governance, Regulation, and Privatization in the Asia-Pacific Region is the first thoroughgoing account of the relative success of the different approaches to privatization as undertaken in Korea, China, Australia, and Japan.In most contexts, privatization is expected to yield greater efficiency and cost effectiveness while avoiding the corruption and bloated budgets of government regulation or monopoly control. But broad-scale privatization, if ill designed, has also y
The structure and evolution of recent U.S. trade policy by Robert E Baldwin( )
13 editions published between 1984 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The trade policies addressed in this book have far-reaching effects on the world's increasingly interdependent economies, but until now little research has been devoted to them. This volume represents the first systematic effort to analyze specific U.S. trade policies, particularly nontariff measures. It provides a better understanding of how trade policies operate, how effective they are, and what their costs and benefits are to trading nations. The contributors chart the history of U.S. trade policy since World War II, analyze industry-specific trade barriers, and discuss the effects of tari
The role of foreign direct investment in East Asian economic development by Takatoshi Itō( )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The international flow of long-term private capital has increased dramatically in the 1990s. In fact, many policymakers now consider private foreign capital to be an essential resource for the acceleration of economic growth. This volume focuses attention on the microeconomic determinants and effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the East Asian region, allowing researchers to explore the overall structure of FDI, to offer case studies of individual countries, and to consider their insights, both general and particular, within the context of current economic theory
Changes in exchange rates in rapidly developing countries theory, practice, and policy issues by Takatoshi Itō( )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 1,428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The exchange rate is a crucial variable linking a nation's domestic economy to the international market. Thus choice of an exchange rate regime is a central component in the economic policy of developing countries and a key factor affecting economic growth. Historically, most developing nations have employed strict exchange rate controls and heavy protection of domestic industry-policies now thought to be at odds with sustainable and desirable rates of economic growth. By contrast, many East Asian nations maintained exchange rate regimes designed to achieve an attractive climate for exports an
Deregulation and interdependence in the Asia-Pacific region by Takatoshi Ito( )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Recently, real and artificial barriers to international transactions have fallen sharply, causing a rise in the overall volume of international trade. East Asia has been particularly affected by the economic stresses and gains derived from deregulation. Deregulation and Interdependence in the Asia-Pacific Region explores the broadly similar experiences of certain economies in the regionChina, Hong Kong, Japan, Koreain dealing with the potentially volatile process of deregulation, and examines the East Asian response to a rapidly transforming economic environment
Regional and global capital flows macroeconomic causes and consequences by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( )
9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume of capital flows between industrial and developing countries has grown dramatically in the past decade and has become a major issue in a world that is increasingly "globalized." Here Takatoshi Ito and Anne O. Krueger, two leading experts on this topic, have assembled a group of scholars who address different types of capital flows--bank lending, bonds, direct foreign investment--and the implications they hold for economic performance. With its particular focus on the Asian financial crises, this work presents a new model for policy makers everywhere in thinking about the rol
Trade in services to the Asia-Pacific region by Takatoshi Itō( )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1,410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years the tremendous growth of the service sector?including international trade in services?has outstripped that of manufacturing in many industrialized nations. As the importance of services has grown, economists have begun to focus on policy issues raised by them and have tried to understand what, if any, differences there are between production and delivery of goods and services. This volume is the first book-length attempt to analyze trade in services in the Asia-Pacific region. Contributors provide overviews of basic issues involved in studying the service sector; investigate th
The political economy of trade protection by Anne O Krueger( )
16 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 1,360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This clear, concise summary of the in-depth analyses presented in The Political Economy of American Trade Policy examines the level, form, and evolution of American trade protection. In case studies of trade barriers imposed during the 1980s to help the steel, semiconductor, automobile, lumber, wheat, and textile and apparel industries, the contributors trace the evolution of efforts to obtain protection, protectionist measures, and their results. A chapter assessing the common themes that emerge from the studies concludes that the focus of current trade law is exclusively on the individual pr
The political economy of American trade policy by Anne O Krueger( )
15 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Exploring the political and economic determinants of trade protection, this study provides a wealth of information on key American industries and documents the process of seeking and conferring protection. Eight analytical histories of the automobile, steel, semiconductor, lumber, wheat, and textile and apparel industries demonstrate that trade barriers rarely have unequivocal benefits and may be counterproductive. They show that criteria for awarding protection do not take into account the interests of consumers or other industries and that political influence and an organized lobby are major
Trade and protectionism by Takatoshi Itō( )
12 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the first three decades following the Second World War, an increasingly open international trading system led to unprecedented economic growth throughout the world. But in recent years, that openness has been threatened by increased protectionism, regional trading arrangementsEurope 1992 and the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreementand setbacks in negotiations on the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. In Trade and Protectionism, American and East Asian scholars consider the dangers of this trend for the world economy and especially for East Asian countries. The authors look at the cur
Political economy of policy reform in developing countries by Anne O Krueger( )
14 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 1,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this examination of the political economy of economic policy determination and evolution in developing countries, the author provides concrete insights into the interaction of economic and political variables that determine the success or failure of such policies--an understanding that is essential if economista are to provide realistic technical assistance in the formulation of economic policy reform programs
Regionalism versus multilateral trade arrangements by Takatoshi Itō( )
10 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 1,282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is no doubt that the open multilateral trading system after World War II was a key ingredient in the rapid economic development of the entire world. Especially in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, exports increased dramatically both in absolute terms and as a percentage of GNP. In the 1980s, however, preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) began to emerge as significant factors affecting world trade. This volume contains thirteen papers that analyze the tensions between multilateral trading systems and preferential trade arrangements and the impact of these tensions on East Asia
Trade policies and developing nations by Anne O Krueger( Book )
10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, part of the Integrating National Economies series, Anne O. Krueger traces the reasons for the developing countries' reversals of earlier policies and demonstrates the importance of the open international trading system for them. She analyzes the interaction of developing countries and the world economy from the late 1940s to the early 1990s, reviews the lessons learned, and surveys the situation in the mid-1990s
Economic policy reforms and the Indian economy by Anne O Krueger( )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
India is the second most populous country in the world and also one of the poorest. From the late 1940s to 1980, India's per capita income grew at an average annual rate of only two percent. Expansionist economic reforms during the 1980s boosted economic growth but also unfortunately resulted in high inflation and a balance of payments crisis. As a consequence, in 1991 the government announced sweeping new changes in economic policies. This book evaluates the effects of those changes and identifies areas of the Indian economy still in urgent need of reform

American trade policy : a tragedy in the making by Anne O Krueger( Book )
8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this monograph Anne O. Krueger demonstrates the increasing reliance on bilateral and regional trading arrangements and shows the dangers of departures from multilateralism. Using examples from trading relationships with individual countries (especially Japan and Korea), she shows how the presence of third countries not covered by agreements, market forces, and unanticipated technological and economic events undermine the intended effects of many bilateral arrangements. Ms. Krueger analyzes the North American Free Trade Agreement, and its prospective enlargement to a Western Hemisphere free trade agreement, in light of its impact on the multilateral trading system. While such arrangements can be "GATT plus," they can also be GATT substitutes. The author outlines the ways in which the presence of regional arrangements can detract from the open multilateral trading system, especially at a time when the new World Trade Organization should be the focal point of energy and attention
Growth theories in light of the East Asian experience by Takatoshi Ito( )
14 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contributors to this volume analyze the growth experiences of Japan, Korea, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan in light of the recently developed endogenous growth theory to provide an understanding of the economic boom in East Asia. The theory explored in this volume attributes the phenomenal economic success of these countries to, among other factors, the role of an outward orientation?a focus on exporting rather than on protecting home markets. In addition, the importance of exchange rate behavior, of the supportive role of government policy, and of the accumulation and promotion o
