Impact of high oil price on economic growth in small Pacific island countries by T. K Jayaraman( Computer File )

This paper investigates the nexus between economic growth and oil price in Pacific island countries (PICs). Except Papua New Guinea, none of the PICs has fossil fuel resources. Consequently, the 13 PICs are totally dependent on oil imports for their economic activities. Since PICs have limited foreign exchange earning capacities, as they have a very narrow range of exports and are highly dependent on foreign aid, high oil prices in recent months have seriously tested their economic resilience. This paper applies the ARDL bounds testing methodology to four PICs, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu with a view to assessing the impact of oil price on economic growth. The findings are oil price, gross domestic product and international reserve are cointegrated in all the four PICs. Further, both in the long and short-runs, we observe that there is a uni-directional relationship as causality linkage runs only from oil price and international reserves to economic growth. The paper makes some policy recommendations

Small states big problems small solutions from big countries by Rup Singh( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Several studies have suggested that growth constraints in small states are no different from others and therefore, they do not require special attention. In this paper, argue that developed countries and donor agencies may have to re-consider Special and Differential Treatment provisions within the WTO and establish a sustainable provision for small economies. Our analysis show that although trade liberalization provides positive stimulus to growth, there is evidence that small states endure high business costs and lack productive capacity that do not allow them to enjoy the full benefits of trade liberalization policies. Further, developments in trade prices including those in preferential prices have had negative effects on small states outputs and growth rates especially in the post 1995. Therefore, we are of the view that small states have a strong case to argue for continued support in the form of adjustment and adaptation funds to develop institutions, infrastructure and competitive domestic products
