Measuring globalisation gauging its consequences by Axel Dreher( file )
19 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 548 libraries worldwide
"Against the chorus of globalisation's proponents and detractors, the authors propose an approach for measuring globalisation and its consequences. Undertaking a comprehensive review of the literature on globalisation and using data from the MGI and KOF indices, the authors build a framework for defining globalisation and analyzing the relationships among economic, political, and social variables. In particular, they apply the methodology to analyze the effects of globalisation on tax policy, government spending, economic growth, inequality, union power, and the natural environment and consider additional avenues for research, analysis, and decision making. In the process, they hope that by introducing objective measures to enhance our insight into the functioning of the complex global system."--Jacket

International migration and the welfare state revisited by Noel Gaston( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"Immigration is a controversial topic in most developed economies. The presence of a redistributive welfare state in all major immigrant host countries creates a margin on which immigration affects native welfare. The primary focus of the paper is whether a large intake of immigrants reduces welfare state effort. It is usually argued that steady increases in immigration lead to public pressure for lower levels of publicly-funded social expenditures. In contrast to the earlier empirical literature on this topic, we find little evidence in favour of this hypothesis. While immigration does have a relatively modest effect on the welfare state, if anything there is some support for the view that a greater influx of immigrants has lead policy-makers to increase welfare state spending."--Editor
The 'greening' of trade unions and the demand for eco-taxes ( Article )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"By embedding labour market bargaining considerations in an influence-seeking framework, we know how a union's stance on environmental policy depends on the exposure of their members to the risk of job loss. With a risk of unemployment, unions lobby with employers to restricter environmental policies. When employment is secure, unions may support policies that reduce employment opportunities for nonunion workers. "Environmentalism" can therefore arise without explicit environmental concerns among workers. Consequently, pollution taxes may yield a negative welfare dividend in the form of inefficiently high unemployment."--Editor
Relief for the environment? : The importance of an increasingly unimportant industrial sector ( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Deindustrialisation, stagnant real incomes of production workers and increasing inequality are latter-day features of many economies. It's common to assume that such developments pressure policy-makers to relax environmental standards. However, when heavily polluting industries become less important economically, their political importance also tends to diminish. Consequently, a regulator may increase the stringency of environmental policies. Like some other studies, we find that declining industrial employment translates into stricter environmental standards. In contrast to previous studies, but consistent with our argument, we find that greater income inequality is associated with policies that promote a cleaner environment. -- Environmental regulations ; deindustrialisation ; income inequality ; extreme bounds analysis
The inverse domino effect : are economic reforms contagious? ( Computer File )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper examines whether a country's economic reforms are affected by reforms adopted by other countries. A simple model of economic reforms is developed to motivate the econometric work. Unsurprisingly, the model predicts that reforms are more likely when factors of production are internationally mobile and reforms are pursued in other economies. More interesting is the finding that reforms are not driven by greater trade openness. Using the change in the Index of Economic Freedom as the measure of market-liberalising reforms, we examine two issues. Using data for a panel of 144 countries and the years 1995-2006, we identify the most important channels through which reforms are transmitted from country to country. We find evidence of the importance of reforms in other countries. Moreover, consistent with our model, international trade is not a vehicle for the diffusion of economic reforms, rather the most important mechanism is geographical or cultural proximity. -- Economic reforms ; economic freedom ; resource flow models ; spatial interdependence
