Economic geography and public policy by Richard Baldwin( )
16 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Economic Geography and Public Policy illustrates many new policy insights economic geography models can offer to the realm of theoretical policy analysis. Focusing primarily on trade policy, tax policy, and regional policy, Richard Baldwin and coauthors show how these models can be used to make sense of real-world situations. The book provides much fresh analysis but also synthesizes insights from the existing literature. It is essential reading for graduate students, researchers, and policymakers seeking new approaches to spatial policy issues."--BOOK JACKET
East Asian economic regionalism feasibilities and challenges by Ch'ung-yŏng An( )
14 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"East Asian Economic Regionalism attempts to analyze the feasibilities of economic integration in East Asia and to discuss emerging economic integration efforts in East Asia with special reference to an East Asian FTA. Although economic integration is desirable economically, positions and approaches of each regional economy toward East Asian economic integration may differ depending on the circumstances of the countries concerned. East Asian Economic Regionalism provides diverse positions on East Asian economic integration by ASEAN countries, as well as the Northeastern countries of China, Japan and Korea. The volume also provides economic assessment of EAFTA and evaluates East Asian economic integration. East Asian Economic Regionalism may be the first book on East Asian economic integration with positions toward economic integration of major players in the region."--Jacket

Expanding membership of the European Union by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This compelling volume, from the Centre for Economic Policy Research, examines the discussion surrounding expansion of the European Union (EU). The contributors address the key issues in the debate, including the implications of expansion for the global trading system, enlargement-related pressures to reform EU decision-making, and the economic consequences of membership for entrants. Using theoretical techniques to report results and insights, this book not only sheds light on the consequences of Austria, Finland and Sweden joining the
Multilateralizing regionalism by Multilateralizing Regionalism( Book )
12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Regional trade agreements (RTAs) have proliferated around the world in the past two decades, and now nearly all members of the WTO are party to at least one. Besides tariffs and rules of origin regulating trade in goods, many RTAs now include provisions on services, investments, technical barriers to trade and competition rules, as well as a host of issues not directly related to trade. The geographic reach of RTAs is expanding, with transcontinental agreements spreading forcefully alongside intra-regional agreements. "Multilateralizing Regionalism" was the title of a major conference held from 10-12 September 2007 at the WTO in Geneva. Together, the conference papers achieve two things. First, they marshall detailed, new empirical work on the nature of the "Spaghetti Bowl" and the problems it poses for the multilateral trade system. Second, they contribute fresh and creative thinking on how to "tame the angle" of regional trade agreements
Trade-induced investment-led growth by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
37 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: Many studies have found a positive correlation between trade and growth, but do not attempt to identify the economic mechanisms involved. This paper attempts to identify one of the mechanisms linking trade and growth. In particular, we present a novel theoretical model that establishes a link between trade liberalization and investment-led growth. Estimating equations are derived from the model and estimated with three stage least squares on a cross-country data sample. We find that domestic protection depresses investment and thereby slows growth. Foreign trade barriers also lower domestic investment, but the anti-investment effect is weaker and is less robust to sample and specification changes
Dynamic issues in applied commercial policy analysis by Dynamic issues in applied commercial policy analysis( Book )
11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dynamic Issues in Commercial Policy Analysis focuses on the explicit specification of dynamic mechanisms in the formal analytics of trade models. A wide range of modelling approaches is employed to investigate an even wider range of policy issues, with an overall objective of further extension of the basic conceptual framework of applied commercial policy analysis in the direction of dynamic issues and applications." "Dynamic Issues in Commercial Policy Analysis will be a standard reference for anyone interested in the assessment of international trade and investment policy and the applied study of the dynamic implications of trade policy."--Jacket

Economic impact of EU membership on entrants : new methods and issues ( Book )
9 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume centres on the issues surrounding the likely economic impact that EU membership has on joining nations, with the main emphasis on new issues and methods. Given the significantly greater level of economic integration that now exists in the EU, accession brings up a host of issues that either did not arise or were of secondary importance during earlier enlargement waves. For instance, EU membership now entails eventual membership in the monetary union. This raises a series of new issues such as interest rate convergence, exchange rate stability and the loss of sovereignty over monetary policy. Additionally, these macro issues interact with micro issues such as export performance, capital formation and foreign direct investment (FDI). Migration, unemployment and foreign direct investment are further issues that acquire a magnified importance for the prospective entrants. All of these questions are treated in the contributions in Economic Impact of EU Membership on Entrants: New Methods and Issues that should be of particular interest to academics as well as decisionmakers in prospective member countries. Richard E. Baldwin worked for the Institute of International Studies. He was a Senior Staff Economist for the President's Council of Economic Advisors in the Bush Administration (1990-1991) and has advised the European Commission on several integration issues. He has also worked in the past for the European Commission, EFTA, the OECD, the FCO, the World Bank, USAID and UNCTAD. From 1991 to 2001 he was Co-Director of the International Trade Programme of the Centre for Economic Policy Research. His areas of specialisations are international trade, regional integration, and economic geography. Before coming to Geneva in May 1991, he was a professor at Columbia University Business School, having done his PhD in economics at MIT, an MSc at LSE, and a first degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Aymo Brunetti is Head of Economic Analysis in the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs of the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Switzerland. In addition, he is Professor of Economics at the University of Basel and teaches at the University of Bern, Switzerland

Agglomeration and endogenous capital by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
23 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The new' economic geography focuses on the footloose-labor and the vertically-linked-industries models. Both are complex since they feature demand-linked and cost-linked agglomeration forces. I present a simpler model where agglomeration stems from demand-linked forces arising from endogenous capital with forward-looking agents. The model's simplicity permits many analytic results (rare in economic geography). Trade-cost levels that trigger catastrophic agglomeration are identified analytically, liberalization between almost equal-sized nations is shown to entail near-catastrophic' agglomeration, and Krugman's informal stability test is shown to be equivalent to formal tests in a fully specified dynamic model
Global income divergence, trade and industrialization : the geography of growth take-offs by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
20 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper takes a step towards formalizing the theoretical interconnections among four post-Industrial Revolution phenomena - the industrialization and growth take-off of rich northern' nations, massive global income divergence, and rapid trade expansion. Specifically, we present a stages-of-growth model in which the four phenomena are jointly endogenous and all are triggered by a gradual fall in the cost of doing business internationally. In the first stage, while trade costs are high, industry is dispersed and growth is low. In the second stage, the north industrializes rapidly, growth takes off and the south diverges. In the third stage, high growth becomes self sustaining. The model shows under which conditions, in a fourth stage, the south can quickly industrialize and converge

The core-periphery model with forward-looking expectations by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The 'core-periphery model' is vitiated by its assumption of static expectations. That is, migration (inter-regional or intersectoral) is the key to agglomeration, but migrants base their decision on current wage differences alone--even though migration predictably alters wages and workers are (implicitly) infinitely lived. The assumption was necessary for analytic tractability. The model can have multiple stable equilibria, so allowing forward-looking expectations would have forced consideration of the very difficult perhaps even intractable issues of global stability in non-linear dynamic systems. This paper's main contribution is to present a set of solution techniques partly analytic and partly numerical that allow us to consider forward-looking expectations. These techniques reveal a startling result. If quadratic migration costs are sufficiently high, allowing forward-looking behaviour has no impact on the main results, so static expectations are truly an assumption of convenience. If migration costs are lower, however, forward-looking behaviour creates history-vs-expectations considerations. In this case self-fulfilling prophecy
Trade liberalization and endogenous growth : a q-theory approach by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: This paper has two purposes. It introduces a direct approach to policy analysis in endogenous growth models - the q-theory approach - and uses this to illustrate several new openness-and-growth links that appear when we enrich the economic content of the early trade and growth models. The approach - inspired by Tobin's q - is merely a change of state variables and re-interpretation of steady-state conditions. The main difference is its focus on investment, which is after all, the heart of growth models. The approach's simplicity permits us to complicate the early models in interesting directions and to explicitly include trade barriers. The latter allows study of incremental policy reform rather than mere shifts from autarky to free trade (or small deviations from free trade) as in early literature
