Dutch disease and the mitigation effect of migration: evidence from Canadian provinces by Michel Beine( Book )
7 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
This paper looks at whether immigration can mitigate the Dutch disease effects associated with booms in natural resource sectors. We first derive predicted changes in the size of the non-tradable sector from a small general-equilibrium model à la Obstfeld-Rogoff, supplemented by a resource income and a varying labour supply. Using data for Canadian provinces, we test for the existence of a mitigating effect of immigration in terms of an increase in the size of the non-tradable sector triggered by the positive resource shock in booming regions. We find evidence of such an effect for the aggregate inflow of migrants. Disentangling those flows by type of migrants, we find that the mitigation effect is due mostly to interprovincial migration and temporary international migration. There is no evidence of such an effect for permanent international immigration. Nevertheless, interprovincial migration also results in a spreading effect of Dutch disease from booming to non-booming provinces

Immigration and internal mobility in Canada by Michel Beine( Book )
7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
We analyze the impact of temporary foreign workers (TFWs) and permanent immigrants on interprovincial mobility in Canada. Particular attention is given to the Canadian program of TFWs that has intensified enormously over the last 30 years. Results of the empirical analysis are analyzed through the lens of a small theoretical model that incorporates a job-matching framework (Pissaridès, 1985, 2000) in a migration model à la Harris and Todaro (1970). We find that the inflow of TFWs into a given province tends to substantially decrease net interprovincial mobility. This is not the case, however, for the inflow of permanent immigrants selected through the Canadian point system. On average, each inflow of 100 TFWs is found to decrease net interprovincial migrants within the year by about 50, a number substantially higher than is present in existing literature. This number increases to 180 in the long run. The negative impact of TFWs is ascribed to the fact that TFWs are hired directly by employers, take vacant jobs, and display employment and participation rates of close to 100 per cent. Our paper suggests that, in general, the impact of immigration on labor market conditions depends critically on the way immigrants are selected

Research and development composition and labour productivity growth in 16 OECD countries by Ram Acharya( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The objective of this paper is to evaluate empirically the contribution of various components of R & D expenditure to promoting economic growth across a set of countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). More specifically, the authors investigate the effectiveness of private and public R & D expenditures in raising labor productivity in developed countries; whether government intramural R & D and higher education R & D have similar effects on the performance as public R & D; whether money spent on R & D has the same effect regardless of sector; and whether the R & D intensity in the sector or the size of sector (or both) matter for overall labor productivity growth.--Includes text from document

The Canadian dollar and the Dutch and Canadian diseases by Serge Coulombe( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
With the spectacular rise of the dollar, along with rising natural-resource prices during the first decade of the 21st century, Canadians heard a great deal about Dutch disease. Many politicians and pundits blamed the phenomenon, in which a country's currency, inflated by rising commodity prices, renders manufacturing exports increasingly uncompetitive, for rising unemployment in the Canadian manufacturing industry. But a close look at what happened during that period reveals that the Dutch disease mechanism was only part of the story. The other part, and quantitatively the most important, is an affliction of an altogether different providence: Canadian disease
Terms of trade changes, the Dutch disease, and Canadian provincial disparity by Serge Coulombe( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The primary purpose of this paper is to show that the favourable evolution of terms of trade during the resource boom of 2002 to 2008 has largely shaped Canadian provincial disparity in 2012. This results from the uneven spread of valuable natural resources across the territory and the provincial ownership of resources
