Handbook of international economics by Gene M Grossman( Book )

"This Handbook adopts a traditional definition of the subject, and focuses primarily on the explanation of international transactions in goods, services, and assets, and on the main domestic effects of those transactions. The first volume deals with the "real side" of international economics. It is concerned with the explanation of trade and factor flows, with their main effects on goods and factor prices, on the allocation of resources and income distribution and on economic welfare, and also with the effects on national policies designed explicitly to influence trade and factor flows. In other words, it deals chiefly with microeconomic issues and methods. The second volume deals with the "monetary side" of the subject. It is concerned with the balance of payments adjustment process under fixed exchange rates, with exchange rate determination under flexible exchange rates, and with the domestic ramifications of these phenomena. Accordingly, it deals mainly with economic issues, although microeconomic methods are frequently utilized, especially in work on expectations, asset markets, and exchange rate behavior."--Publisher's information

Vertical foreclosure and international trade policy by Barbara J Spencer( Book )
7 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
We examine conditions under which a low cost vertically integrated manufacturer has an incentive to export an intermediate product to its higher cost (vertically integrated) rival rather than to vertically foreclose, fully cutting off supplies. The nature of supply conditions in the importing country, the size of an import tariff on the final good and optimal policy by the exporting country are all shown to be important for this decision. The exporting country may gain by taxing exports of the final (Cournot) product even though, under Cournot competition, an export subsidy is optimal in the absence of a market for intermediates. In this case, optimal policy also requires an export tax on intermediates, but the higher tax on final goods serves to divert sales to the more profitable market for intermediates increasing the extent of vertical supply. It is optimal to tax the export of both goods or to subsidize the export of both goods. It is never optimal to tax one and subsidize the other

International trade, real wages and technical progress : the specific factors model by Ronald Winthrop Jones( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 12 libraries worldwide
It has been over fifty years since Stolper and Samuelson (1941) pointed out that whereas free trade may be beneficial to a country in aggregate terms, even a broadbased factor such as labor may be hurt by the price changes which trade brings about. In particular, a staple of Heckscher-Ohlin trade theory is that relatively capital-abundant countries tend to import commodities which are produced by labor-intensive techniques at home, and the competition which such trade engenders serves to depress real wages. Recent battles to obtain passage of the NAFTA accord and Uruguay Round of GATT agreements in the United States have focused on the overall gains which freer trade is likely to produce, and have suggested, perhaps only implicitly, that the gains are sufficient to compensate potential losers among the working class. Such compensation schemes, however, are rarely introduced, although certain sections of the economy may achieve exceptions to a move to more liberal trade. Changes in the global trading scenario are taking place against a background of advances in technology. Technical progress in a country is generally expected to benefit most productive factors, but strict adherence to a narrow Heckscher-Ohlin interpretation suggests that if technical progress at home is centered in capital-intensive sectors, real wages will suffer, regardless of the capital-saving or labor-saving bias in technical change. Such a drop in real wages would be even more pronounced if simultaneously foreign countries are expanding the world output of labor-intensive products, both because of advances in foreign technology in these areas and, perhaps especially, because of the arrival of new labor-abundant countries into the world trading community. Elsewhere (Jones, 1995) I have agued that bias in technical progress and the possibility of variations in the bundles of commodities produced can play a role in letting Heckscher-Ohlin theory predict a richer and more realistic set of outcomes. The Heckscher-Ohlin model, however, is not the only model which can be used to analyze trade issues. In this paper I focus on the consequences of technical progress for real wages in a model in which labor is a mobile factor and sectors produce outputs by combining labor with human or physical capital that is tied to a particular industry, at least in the short run Although the sector-specific model easily accommodates many sectors, for ease of exposition the analysis focusses on the two-commodity case
