Measuring globalisation gauging its consequences by Axel Dreher( file )
17 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."--BOOK JACKET

The inverse domino effect : are economic reforms contagious? by Martin Gassebner( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2007 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
Has globalisation really had no effect on unions? ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
For a number of OECD countries, the deterioration of labour market outcomes for less-skilled workers since the early 1980's has coincided with a steady decline in union membership. Globalisation is commonly believed to have contributed to both developments. However, recent studies fail to find support for the presumption that globalisation adversely affects unions. Revisiting this issue by using a novel globalisation index we find that globalisation has indeed contributed to deunionisation. In delving further into the issue, we find that it is social integration, rather than economic or political integration, that has been the main contributor to the decline in union membership. -- Deunionisation ; globalisation ; integration ; panel regressions
Has globalisation increased inequality? ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
There has been no shortage of theories which purport to explain why globalisation may have, adverse, insignificant or even beneficial effects on income and earnings inequality. Surprisingly, the empirical realities remain an almost complete mystery. In this paper we use data on industrial wage inequality, household income inequality as well as measures of the economic, social and political dimensions of globalisation to examine this controversial issue. We find that the economic dimension of globalisation, and - less robustly - political integration, have exacerbated wage inequality in developed countries. In contrast, the impact of globalisation on both income and earnings inequality in less-developed countries has been negligible. -- Income and earnings inequality ; globalisation ; democracy ; panel regressions
Relief for the environment? : The importance of an increasingly unimportant industrial sector ( Computer File )
1 edition 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

How an export boom affects unemployment by Noel Gaston( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Does trade affect the equilibrium rate of unemployment? To theoretically examine this question, we incorporate firm-union bargaining considerations into a model with a booming external sector and a stagnating manufacturing sector. In the model, a sustained improvement in the terms of trade lowers unemployment. To empirically investigate the predicted determinants of the unemployment rate, we use data for Australia, a country whose prosperity has always depended on the value of its exports. We find strong evidence that higher export prices, capital accumulation in tradeable goods industries and a lower unemployment benefit replacement rate each reduce the equilibrium unemployment rate. -- equilibrium unemployment rate ; specific factors model ; bargaining ; mining boom ; Dutch disease

The rise (and fall) of labour market programmes : the role of global and domestic factors ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
We study the political economy of labour market policies. First, it is shown that tax and redistributive considerations lead inside workers to prefer spending on active labour market programmes to passive spending, e.g., on unemployment benefits. We also show that greater active spending may be a feature of globalising economies. In the empirical work, panel data for OECD countries are used to examine the relationship between active and passive labour market spending, various measures of globalisation and controls relevant for analysing the political economy of labour market policies. Overall, we find that factors other than globalisation are more important determinants of labour market expenditures. -- Active and passive labour market policies ; inside workers ; panel VAR estimates
