Transatlantic perspectives on the euro by C. Randall Henning( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, the fourth in the U.S.-EU Relations Project series of the European Community Studies Association, concentrates on the ramifications of the euro for transatlantic relations. Two of the foremost analysts of monetary integration - C. Randall Henning and Pier Carlo Padoan - explore whether monetary union will lead to cooperation or rivalry between the United States and Europe by examining the political, economic, and institutional interests of these two principal actors. Drawing on perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic, Henning and Padoan have presented an unusually comprehensive and perceptive pair of analyses of the potentials and pitfalls of EMU in the context of U.S.-EU relations."--Jacket

The structural foundations of international finance : problems of growth and stability( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Structural Foundations of International Finance examines the ways in which national economies, especially those of industrialized countries, are affected by the operations of international financial markets. Although these markets provide productive funding, there is also much speculative trading in stocks and currencies which can cause booms, slumps and hinder recovery. The authors advocate entrepreneurial coordination by productive enterprises for balanced and stable growth, with reduced risks of financial crises and recessions." "This topical and highly engaging book will be invaluable for academics and students of business, economics, political economy, international relations and law."--Jacket
The Marshall Plan : lessons learned for the 21st century by Oecd( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the historical, diplomatic, economic, and strategic aspects of the European Recovery Program (ERP) -- popularly known as the Marshall Plan -- which brought Europe out of the chaos, hunger, poverty, desperation, and ashes of World War II. In it, authors from a variety of countries who are scholars, policy makers, and business leaders, address applications of the Marshall Plan's lessons learned to the 21st century for capacity building, human and sustainable development, and the role of public, private partnerships in emerging market economies and democratic societies.--Publisher's description

Europe between East and South by Siro Lombardini( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The opening up of Eastern Europe raises new questions for the design of environmental policies and for international policy coordination. These questions are even more striking when the uncertainty of the political and economic context is taken into account. The essays provide extremely helpful background information to the understanding of the environmental consequences of the formerly planned economies in Eastern and Central Europe. The book contains the selected and edited proceedings of the Conference on `Europe between East and South' held in the early 90s, organizaed jointly by the Confederation of the European Economic Association (C.E.E.A.) and the Fondazione ENI Enrico Mattei (FEEM)

Technology accumulation and diffusion is there a regional dimension? by Pier Carlo Padoan( )

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

June 1997 National patterns of technology diffusion found in country estimates probably reflect sectoral variations more than country variations. They also reflect different degrees of internationalization. Recently, interest in regionalism has mushroomed, and economists have analyzed it not only from the viewpoint of trade but that of foreign investment, macroeconomics, and political economy. But questions of technological regionalism-whether the accumulation and diffusion of technology has a regional dimension-have been considered only marginally and indirectly. Padoan offers an exploratory analysis of the regional dimension of technology and diffusion, examining both country and sectoral aspects of it. Empirical results suggest that regional trade agreements do not necessarily lead to spillover patterns in regional knowledge. But knowledge may be diffused through vehicles other than trade. National patterns of technological accumulation seem more important than regional patterns. In particular, more internationalized economies seem capable of commanding a substantial amount of knowledge diffusion, which may sometimes follow regional patterns. These conclusions are partly confirmed by sectoral estimates that show that regional patterns of knowledge diffusion are highly sector-specific. The knowledge base varies greatly across sectors. This paper - a product of the International Trade Division, International Economics Department - was prepared for the department's research project on regional integration
SMEs, entrepreneurship, and innovation by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small firms are playing an ever-increasing role in innovation, driven by changes in technologies and markets. Some spin-offs and high growth firms are having remarkable success. However, the broad bulk of small firms are not capitalizing on their advantages. This book explores how government policy can boost innovation by improving the environment for entrepreneurship and small firm development and increasing the innovative capacities of enterprises. Policy findings and recommendations are presented in three key areas: embedding firms in knowledge flows; developing entrepreneurship skills; and social entrepreneurship. In addition, country notes present statistics and policy data on SMEs, entrepreneurship and innovation for 40 economies, including OECD countries, Brazil, China, Estonia, Indonesia, Israel, the Russian Federation, Slovenia and South Africa.--Publisher's description
Trade and the accumulation and diffusion of knowledge by Pier Carlo Padoan( )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

November 1996 The accumulation of knowledge affects trade performance and competitiveness, but trade also (through imports) affects the accumulation of knowledge. Padoan examines the properties of a dynamic disequilibrium model focused on trade specialization and the accumulation of knowledge. He uses a sector breakdown (four export and two import sectors) following Pavitt's (1984) taxonomy, which is especially appropriate for empirically analyzing the relationship between innovation activities and production and export performance. Steady-state analysis shows that: * Under perfectly balanced growth (no change in trade specialization and a uniform growth of knowledge), international diffusion of knowledge is irrelevant for growth. * Under unbalanced growth (with changes in the structure of specialization), the process of structural change may be enhanced by the effects on the domestic accumulation of knowledge of domestic spillover, as innovation activities in one sector generate positive externalities on the rest of the economy. The growth of foreign knowledge has an ambivalent effect on domestic performance because it is both a complement to, and a substitute for, domestic knowledge. Whenever these two effects do not perfectly match, the diffusion of international knowledge is associated with unbalanced growth. Imports of knowledge-intensive goods may not lead to higher growth unless there is sufficiently strong trade performance in the knowledge-intensive sectors (that is, there are thresholds in expansion of market share). This result, whose implications for developing countries is relevant, is not usually reported in the literature in which greater accumulation of foreign knowledge unambiguously leads to higher growth in the country that imports technology through trade. Unbalanced growth is also associated with output catching up. Technological catching up is necessary but not sufficient for balanced growth. Parameter estimates were obtained for France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Results appear to be consistent with theoretical expectations about the importance of price and nonprice determinants of trade performance in the four sectors. Results also seem to be generally consistent with the distribution of revealed comparative advantages in the sense that the country cases exhibit high and significant price and knowledge elasticities and high adjustment speeds - suggesting a good capacity to deliver in sectors with revealed comparative advantage. Simulation exercises confirm steady-state results on the relevance of country differences in trade specialization and in the domestic accumulation of knowledge as they affect growth. They also clarify the relationship between growth and changes in the structure of trade specialization. This paper - a product of the International Trade Division, International Economics Department - is part of a larger effort in the department to assess the role of technology diffusion in economic development

Avoiding Debt Traps by Pier Carlo Padoan( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we develop a simple analytical framework to analyze "good" and "bad equilibria" in public-debt and growth dynamics. The "bad equilibrium" is characterised by the simultaneous occurrence, and adverse feedbacks between, high and growing fiscal deficits and debt, high risk premia on sovereign debt, slumping economic activity and plummeting confidence, whereas a "good equilibrium" is characterized by stable growth and debt and low risk premia. We use this framework to identify both theoretically and empirically the good and bad equilibrium levels of debt and policies that can help a country caught in a bad equilibrium to recover. The analysis shows that despite some output loss in the short run fiscal consolidation can help countries escape from the bad equilibrium trap. More broadly, we find that a combination of financial backstops, structural reform and fiscal consolidation is most effective in helping countries getting onto a sustainable path
