Economic growth and income disparity in BRIC theory and empirical evidence by Monica Das( )
15 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Japanese and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The recent interest in the development processes of BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China) has been triggered by their high growth performance, but their political and social backgrounds are entirely different. This book traces the economic history of BRIC countries to understand their economic and social institutions. The only common theme in this growth story is the high levels of income disparities and poverty that are observed even during the high growth decades. In order to understand the interaction between economic growth, income inequality and poverty, the book develops a theoretical framework that incorporates a mechanism of uniform income transfers in a growth model, where economic growth is the result of accumulation. Income transfer mechanism operates in all countries in the form of a progressive taxation system, pension funds, government's anti-poverty programs, employment guarantee schemes, land reforms, etc. It is not necessarily true that such income transfers would invariably reduce growth rates. The relationship between economic growth and income inequality depends on certain initial conditions. For instance, if the initial distribution of income is fairly unequal, growth induces greater equality. On the other hand, at high levels of per capita incomes, growth may raise inequality if the initial level of inequality is not very high. This brings a new dimension in the "inverted-U hypothesis." Based on econometric modeling of growth-inequality nexus, the book examines the patterns of growth and economic disparities in BRIC countries over long periods of time, including the recent high growth phase. Two inequality measures applied in this study are Gini coefficient and Theil's entropy measures, depending on data availability. Attempts have been made to identify the sources of inequality and the role of initial conditions in determining the patterns of development. Each country's experience is unique, but the theoretical model goes a long way to explain their growth-inequality experience

Theory and empirical evidence on the ecology versus economy debate : a nonparametric estimation of the SURE model and an application to a general equilibrium model of trade and environment by Monica Das( )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The third part of the thesis tests the hypothesis of the theoretical model using the proposed nonparametric estimator of the SURE model. A system of product share and factor share equations are used that are contemporaneously correlated and have unknown functional form. It is observed that for some industries, regulation and output are positively related. The effect of regulation on comparative advantage and pattern of trade is ambiguous for such cases. This casts doubts of the dogma that developing countries export pollution and need to be restrained by interconnecting trade agreements with Multilateral Environment Agreements
Institution and development revisited : a nonparametric approach by Sudip Ranjan Basu( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The paper uses nonparametric methodology to examine the role of institutions in understanding differential levels of development across countries. This technique estimates first order derivatives for every country allowing a deeper look into the impact of institutions on development. The preliminary cross-country findings show that (i) institutional quality positively and significantly increases development quality; and (ii) results remain 'robust' for different model specifications and choice of additional control variables. The analysis is carried out for a set of 102 countries over 1980 to 2004. Similar to parametric results established in the literature, the nonparametric analysis lends further support to the view that institutions matter in the context of economic policies and geographic factors. -- Development ; Institutions ; Geography ; Openness ; Principal component ; Nonparametric analysis
