Measuring The Impacts Of Credit Restrictions On The Trade Performance Of Debtor Nations , Velupillai Premakumar

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The interdependence of the developed world economy and that of the third world has been increasingly evident since the debt crisis of the eighties. International trade declined with the consequence of global economic stagnation. One major contributor to the cumulative and self reinforcing nature of the crisis is the trade impacts of the restrictive capital flows. Trade models applied to extract the debt-to-trade linkages have generally over looked the micro economic behavior that lead to the observed macroeconomic performance. Micro economic models abound that examine the theoretical concerns of this issue. This study re-examines the theoretical considerations, especially as they ...

Between Hierarchy And Market: Industrial Reform In The People's Republic Of China In An Institutional Perspective , Xiao-Jia Ge

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

By employing an institutional perspective, this study analyzes industrial reform in the People's Republic of China (PRC), particularly the reform of state-enterprise relations since 1978. By viewing institutional reform as a process of changing rules and procedures governing both state-enterprise relations and micro-economic organizational behavior, the study gives a detailed account of the evolutionary process of the PRC's industrial reform and of the continuities and discontinuities that this reform has involved. Using Kornai's theoretical framework, particularly the concepts of paternalism and soft budget constraints, phenomena seen as symptomatic of the syndromes described by Kornai were analyzed through ...
