Is There A Latin-American Debt Crisis Building Up In Eastern Europe? A Comparative Analysis, Dagney Faulk, Marcelo M. Giugale Dec 1997

Is There A Latin-American Debt Crisis Building Up In Eastern Europe? A Comparative Analysis, Dagney Faulk, Marcelo M. Giugale

CARD Working Papers

This paper attempts to advance the analysis of Eastern Europe's ongoing debt accumulation process by comparing it to the debt accumulation press that preceded the Latin American debt crisis of the early 1980s. The authors report on key country and international conditions in both situations and place Eastern Europe in the quantitative context of the Latin-American crisis-in-the-making of the late 1970s and early 1980s. This allows for the identification of some reassuring, as well as some worrisome, trends and for the drawing of some broad sustainability-related conclusions.

The Baltic Free Trade Agreement In Agriculture: Issues And Potential Impacts, Natalija Kazlauskiene, William H. Meyers Aug 1997

The Baltic Free Trade Agreement In Agriculture: Issues And Potential Impacts, Natalija Kazlauskiene, William H. Meyers

BALTIC Reports

The Baltic Free Trade Agreement (BFTA) was signed in 1993, took effect on April 1, 1994, and is intended to be the first step in the formation of a customs union. However, agricultural products (agriculture, food industry, and fisheries) were excluded from the initial text, which provided that a separate agreement covering the missing trade areas would be worked out. The process of reaching this agreement was a long and difficult one, and policy asymmetry was a major obstacle throughout the negotiations, since Estonia had no import tariffs and the other countries had tariffs ranging from 20 to 60 percent ...

Cleavages Of Political Values Among Generations In Brazil, Editor Jul 1997

Cleavages Of Political Values Among Generations In Brazil, Editor

International Bulletin of Political Psychology

This article was written by Professor of Psychology Fabián Echegaray, Professor of Sociology Paulo Krischke, and Director of Institutional Ethics Aluir Toso. All three researchers are at the Universidad Federal de Santa Cantarina. They posit and provide supporting theory and data that values which are postmaterialist (emphasizing psychological well-being and self-actualization) as opposed to materialist (emphasizing materialistic goods) are more likely to be displayed by younger than older Brazilians and by those with higher than lower social class. Thus older, lower class Brazilians will be most materialist and younger, higher class Brazilians will be most postmaterialist. The paper was presented ...

A Dynamic Comparative Advantage Analysis Of Fresh Fruit And Vegetable Trade Between Latin America And The United States, Laurance Prescott, Gordon C. Rausser, Mary Beth Sigler, Jeremy Arnone May 1997

A Dynamic Comparative Advantage Analysis Of Fresh Fruit And Vegetable Trade Between Latin America And The United States, Laurance Prescott, Gordon C. Rausser, Mary Beth Sigler, Jeremy Arnone

GATT Research Papers

In the first of three related papers, the authors analyze the dynamic pattern of comparative advantage in fruit and vegetable trade flows between the United States and Latin America. Their examination of several factors--including market demand, improving investment climates, technological advances, and trade liberalization--indicates a significant potential for the development and expansion of trade flows to meet open windows of opportunity in the United States.


Institutional Rules And Mechanisms For Western Hemisphere Trade, Mary Beth Sigler, Roger Hickey, Jeremy Arnone, Gordon C. Rausser May 1997

Institutional Rules And Mechanisms For Western Hemisphere Trade, Mary Beth Sigler, Roger Hickey, Jeremy Arnone, Gordon C. Rausser

GATT Research Papers

In the third of three related papers, the authors discuss rules and mechanisms that could facilitate the expansion of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and promote freer trade and investment in the Americas. These mechanisms include macroeconomic policies that open trade and capital flows, and institutional policies that specify standards and requirements to protect investments and lower risks.


World Trade Impacts Of Foot And Mouth Disease In Taiwan, Frank H. Fuller, Jacinto F. Fabiosa, Velupillai Premakumar Apr 1997

World Trade Impacts Of Foot And Mouth Disease In Taiwan, Frank H. Fuller, Jacinto F. Fabiosa, Velupillai Premakumar

CARD Briefing Papers

The recent ban on pork exports from Taiwan resulting from an outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in March 1997 will significantly alter future world trade patterns in pork. This study provides an in-depth analysis of the price and trade effects of this export ban. The analysis uses the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) model of world agricultural production and trade to simulate the removal of Taiwan's pork exports from world markets. The model enables examination of the interaction among pork, other meats, feed grains, and protein meal feeds.


Dumping In The Flat Panel Display Industry: The Case Of Planar Systems, Quinn O'Rourke Apr 1997

Dumping In The Flat Panel Display Industry: The Case Of Planar Systems, Quinn O'Rourke

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

I wanted to examine a specific aspect of the U.S.-Japanese trade relationship that has been cited by some as a source of tension. I chose to examine the unfair trading practice of dumping. Dumping involves selling goods at a price that is below the cost of production. To narrow my topic even further, I decided to examine dumping that was occurring within the flat panel display industry. Flat panel displays are the computer screens that are used in laptop computers, avionics equipment, telecommunications, and military equipment. For a specific case study, I chose to investigate a firm from ...


The Chinese Market For U.S. Pork Exports, Dermot J. Hayes, Roxanne L. B. Clemens Mar 1997

The Chinese Market For U.S. Pork Exports, Dermot J. Hayes, Roxanne L. B. Clemens

CARD Briefing Papers

It has become obvious to many observers that China will need to import feed grains or livestock products to achieve consumer diets similar to those of the developed world. The first part of this report discusses the supply and demand situation for the Chinese pork market through 2007. The second section provides an in-depth analysis of the Chinese market for pork variety meats and the potential benefits that will accrue if this market is opened. The last section lists actions that would allow U.S. pork producers to make optimal use of these new opportunities.


The Impact Of Eep Removal On U.S. Wheat, Food And Agricultural Policy Research Institute, William H. Meyers, Darnell Smith, Dermot J. Hayes, Samarendu Mohanty, Steven L. Elmore, James Rude, Frank H. Fuller, Velupillai Premakumar, Sudhir Chaudhary Mar 1997

The Impact Of Eep Removal On U.S. Wheat, Food And Agricultural Policy Research Institute, William H. Meyers, Darnell Smith, Dermot J. Hayes, Samarendu Mohanty, Steven L. Elmore, James Rude, Frank H. Fuller, Velupillai Premakumar, Sudhir Chaudhary

CARD Briefing Papers

The Export Enhancement Program (EEP) was initiated under the Food Security Act of 1985 to offset the adverse effects of unfair trade practices on U.S. exports and to support U.S. prices. More recently, EEP has been constrained by both GATT and the FAIR Act. This study measures the impacts of the elimination of the EEP on U.S. wheat exports and prices over the coming 10-year period. The commodity trade models at the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) are used to analyze the policy question.


Measurement Of Government Intervention: A Comparison Of Alternative Concepts, Virender Gautam, Sudhir Chaudhary, James R. Prescott, Darnell B. Smith Mar 1997

Measurement Of Government Intervention: A Comparison Of Alternative Concepts, Virender Gautam, Sudhir Chaudhary, James R. Prescott, Darnell B. Smith

CARD Working Papers

The variation in protection awarded to agricultural commodities indicates some general patterns of protection across industrialized and developing countries. This paper provides an analytical overview of the political economy market of agricultural protection. A comprehensive comparative analysis of different measurement concepts and their respective polio coverage is discussed. A graphic exposition of the policy effects captured by selected measurement concepts is provided for different market conditions.


Africa And The New World Order, Andrew Ewoh Feb 1997

Africa And The New World Order, Andrew Ewoh

Andrew I.E. Ewoh

What is the plight of Africa under the New World Order? The paper argues that the NWO poses severe economic problems for African nations. It offers two main practical solutions for these problems and plausible policy implications. The analysis concludes by acknowledging that structural adjustment programs as traditionally suggested by the International Monetary Fund and democratization of the polity will not guarantee economic prosperity for the continent.


Policy And Forecasting Models For The Chinese, South Korean, Australian, And European Union Meat Sectors, Ian Shaw, John Shaffer, V. Premakumar, Dermot J. Hayes Feb 1997

Policy And Forecasting Models For The Chinese, South Korean, Australian, And European Union Meat Sectors, Ian Shaw, John Shaffer, V. Premakumar, Dermot J. Hayes

CARD Technical Reports

Recent strong growth in the export of U.S. meat products combined with increasing Asian demand for feed grains has focused attention on tools to analyze growth potential in these markets. This paper demonstrates that structural models of the livestock industries in foreign countries can provide information about the prospects for meat and related agricultural commodities. They can also be used to analyze the impact of policy changes.

Globalization And Local Economic Development: Intersections Between The Industrial Economy And Regional Industrial Planning, Center For Economic Development Jan 1997

Globalization And Local Economic Development: Intersections Between The Industrial Economy And Regional Industrial Planning, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

By now it is widely accepted that we live in a global economy. We are more likely to buy goods from Korea than Kansas, we may have pension funds invested in companies on the Tokyo stock market as well as New York's, and we may work for a corporation with headquarters in Brussels rather than Boston. But despite our sense of participating in a world economy, it is difficult to understand how that world's economy intersects with the national or local economies with which we are more familiar. This is particularly significant for the regional economic development planner ...

Exchange Rate Regimes And International Trade, Reuven Glick, Clas Wihlborg Jan 1997

Exchange Rate Regimes And International Trade, Reuven Glick, Clas Wihlborg

Business Faculty Books and Book Chapters

The existing evidence on the volume effects of exchange rate risk and exchange rate regime choice is examined. The analysis involves estimating the effects of cross-country differences in exchange rate regime on export and import elasticities using a continuous measure of the degree of exchange rate flexibility. It is argued that risk for firms involved in international trade tends to decrease with greater exchange rate flexibility. In formulating our hypotheses we argued that the cross-country variation in U.S. export elasticities with respect to the real exchange rate and foreign GDPs is primarily attributable to the cross- country variation in ...


Gatt, Dispute Settlement And Cooperation: A Reply, Dan Kovenock, Marie Thursby Jan 1997

Gatt, Dispute Settlement And Cooperation: A Reply, Dan Kovenock, Marie Thursby

Economics Faculty Articles and Research

In our 1992 paper, we analyzed GATT and its dispute settlement procedure (DSP) in the context of a supergame model of international trade featuring both explicit (GATT) and implicit (non-GATT) agreements. Our paper departed from the previous economics literature on GATT enforcement (see, for instance Hungerford (1991) and Ludema (1990)) by incorporating the ``twin engines of international obligation and retaliation'' (Hudec, 1990). International obligation imposed a cost of violating an explicit international agreement, such as GATT, while retaliation could take place either within the rules stipulated by the international agreement or by punishment outside of the agreement. In Section 2 ...


Eschange Rate Policies In Transforming Economies Of Central Europe, Lucjan Orlowski, Ed Jan 1997

Eschange Rate Policies In Transforming Economies Of Central Europe, Lucjan Orlowski, Ed

WCBT Faculty Publications

The economic transformation in Central and Eastern Europe has been one of the major systemic changes in world economic history. This volume examines the dramatic changes in trade and payment systems in Central European nations and the former Soviet states during the first half of the 1990s. Part I considers the dramatic adjustments in commodity structure and the geographic distribution of trade in these countries, while Part II surveys the sweeping transition of the Central and Eastern European countries' payments systems and the evolution of financial markets, exchange rates, and banking systems. Forms of integration with the global economy and ...
