How democracy works : political institutions, actors, and arenas in Latin American policymaking ( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
The restoration of democracy in Latin America in the 1980s was expected to bring a new era of progress, but support for the democratic system has waned as citizens have realized that democracy alone does not assure prosperity and equality. Countries that have pursued better policies have enjoyed better development outcomes; political results have varied too: some countries transition smoothly from one administration to the next, while others have been mired in corruption scandals and political unrest. This book is the third from the IDB studying the differences in policymaking, but instead of viewing them country by country, it explores the institutions, actors and arenas across Latin America.--Foreword

Institutional arrangements and fiscal performance : the Latin American experience by Ernesto Stein( Book )
16 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
This paper explores the links between institutional arrangements and fiscal performance in Latin America. We consider four measures of fiscal performance, namely expenditures, the size of fiscal deficits and debt, and the response of fiscal policy to business fluctuations; and two institutional dimensions, namely, electoral systems and budgetary processes. We find evidence that electoral systems characterized by a large degree of proportionality large district magnitude, tend to have larger governments, larger deficits and a more procyclical response to the business cycle. We also find that more transparent and hierarchical budgetary procedures lead to lower deficits and debt. Contrary to the findings of Hallerberg and von Hagen for European countries, we find no evidence that centralized budgetary arrangements neutralize the potentially adverse impact on fiscal deficits of a larger degree of proportionality of the electoral system
The welfare implications of trading blocs among countries with different endowments by Antonio Spilimbergo( Book )
19 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
In this paper, we present a model where trade is motivated both by preference for variety and comparative advantages. We use this framework to analyze the welfare implications of trading blocs among countries with different endowments with and without transportation costs. In this framework, we address the following issues: a) the welfare implications of the consolidation of the world into a few trading blocs; b) the different incentives that rich and poor countries have in choosing their partners in trade arrangements; c) whether the welfare consequences of continental preferential trade arrangements depend on the relative endowments
Regional trading arrangements : natural or super-natural? by Jeffrey A Frankel( Book )
13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 71 libraries worldwide
Continental trading blocs : are they natural or super-natural? by Jeffrey A Frankel( Book )
10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
Using the gravity model, we find evidence of three continental trading blocs: the Americas, Europe and Pacific Asia. Intra-regional trade exceeds what can be explained by the proximity of a pair of countries, their sizes and GNP/capitas, and whether they share a common border or language. We then turn from the econometrics to the economic welfare implications. Krugman has supplied an argument against a three-bloc world, assuming no transport costs, and another argument in favor, assuming prohibitively high transportation costs between continents. We complete the model for the realistic case where intercontinental transport costs are neither prohibitive nor zero. If transport costs are low, continental Free Trade Areas can reduce welfare. We call such blocs super-natural. Partial liberalization is better than full liberalization within regional Preferential Trading Arrangements, despite the GATT's Article 24. The super-natural zone occurs when the regionalization of trade policy exceeds what is justified by natural factors. Estimates suggest that trading blocs like the current EC are super-natural

Rethinking productive development : sound policies and institutions for economic transformation by Gustavo Crespi( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
"Rethinking Industrial Policy systematically analyzes policies in key areas such as innovation, new firms, firm networks, financing, human capital, and internationalization. The authors provide an in-depth look at specific policies and institutions that illustrate the do's and don'ts emerging from regional and international experience on the basis of the analytic tests, and they review new approaches to gauging the opportunities countries have for beneficial productive transformation into new and better products. The book discusses how these analyses are useful to inform policy to stimulate and guide productive transformation."
Regional trading arrangements or super-natural? by Jeffrey A Frankel( Book )
3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
This paper summarizes recent research by the authors on the effects of free trade areas (FTAs). Within our model, which emphasizes inter-continental transport costs, several conclusions arise. (1) FTAs are likely to be detrimental over a moderate range of parameter values, even if drawn along natural regional lines. (2) A small margin of preferences for neighbors is beneficial. (3) Optimal preferences depend on the parameters, particularly on transport costs. (4) If preferences are raised further, they enter the zone of negative returns to regionalization, and eventually the super-natural zone, where welfare is lower than under the MFN status quo. Estimates from the gravity model suggest the world system may already be in the super-natural zone. The core model leaves out many factors. But we have pursued a variety of extensions by now. Perhaps the two most important are generalizing the highly stylized model of trade (to include factor endowments), and relaxing the assumption that the inter-bloc level of tariffs remains fixed. In the latter case, allowing tariffs to be endogenous yields a much more optimistic outlook for the effects of FTAs
