    ABSTRACT: The United States is engaged in two huge trade negotiations—the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership—that will have a profound impact on our economy and on the world trade system. These agreements can be an important template for new rules governing world trade, and they address some important new areas, such as regulatory issues. However, if they are to be a good template, U.S. negotiators have to alter some of their proposals, and these new agreements have to prohibit predatory trade practices, such as currency manipulation.

    ABSTRACT: When foreign companies invest in other countries, cultural differences emerge that affect the employees’ productivity. There are several studies regarding the different cultural factors that affect company and employee productivity, not only in the psychological domain, but also in the organizational domain. A survey was developed to study and assess the psychological and organizational cultural factors that can affect the performance of the employee in foreign companies established in the northeast of Mexico. The results show that leadership style and family values are the most important factors influencing the performance of the worker.

    ABSTRACT: This study examined the revealed comparative advantage (RCA) of sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and Latin America & Caribbean (LAC) on the export of five merchandise subsectors (during 1995 to 2010) using the World Development Indicators database. Despite improvements observed, SSA’s and LAC’s trade share and economic integration are low. LAC has stronger RCA than SSA in export of food items though the gap in their competitiveness is not wide. The SSA region has higher RCA in export of agricultural raw materials, fuel, and ores and metals than LAC. Both regions have revealed comparative disadvantage in the export of manufactures, though lesser in LAC.

    ABSTRACT: While antidumping laws were originally developed as the international trade analogue of domestic competition or antitrust policies, most vestiges of competition policy disappeared early in their evolution. Nonetheless, the formal justification for modern antidumping practice remains founded on countering “unfair” trading practices and preserving competitive markets. We update and consolidate a relatively thin literature that has examined this issue formally. Applying a “likelihood of predatory practice” index to the European Union’s use of antidumping proceedings over the period 2001 to 2010, we find more antidumping cases that suggest competition policy concerns than do previous studies, although these are still a minority.

    ABSTRACT: This article examines the effects of imported intermediary inputs and in-house research and development (R&D) on productivity growth, using firm-level data from Indian manufacturing industries for the period 2000–09. For this purpose, we adopted two empirical frameworks: production function and growth accounting method. The estimated results from the production function framework suggest that the impact of imported intermediary goods on output is reasonably sizable. The role of R&D activities under this framework is found to be insignificant. The analysis based on the growth accounting suggests that total factor productivity of firms is linked with import and R&D activities.

    ABSTRACT: This article makes a comparative analysis of the antidumping practices of three giant countries by using panel data of antidumping from the World Trade Organization for the period 1995–2010. An empirical analysis shows that India effectively took advantage of antidumping filings against export-oriented Asian countries during periods of low GDP growth and high unemployment. China, however, has frequently filed antidumping measures against export-oriented Asian countries experiencing a trade deficit and a high unemployment rate. The results also predict that India’s antidumping filings against China may continue for the time being; however, India’s antidumping filings against Japan and Korea are expected to gradually decline due to the free trade agreements among them.

    ABSTRACT: This article highlights the export potential trade gap in climate smart goods (CSG) in Asia in 2008. Using the trade gravity equation, this article estimates trade value and measures potential trade gap. This potential trade gap suggests that there is a scope to increase the export of CSG. This study identifies individual trade partners and focuses on the trade opportunity in CSG in Asia.

    ABSTRACT: This article investigates how outward foreign direct investment by U.S. multinational corporations influences industry lobbying for trade protection in the United States, focusing on interindustry structure of goods sales networks between upstream and downstream sectors and also on the multinationals’ input procurement patterns. If foreign affiliates of U.S. multinationals switch input sources from U.S. to host-country suppliers, U.S. suppliers should receive a negative demand shock, ceteris paribus. An empirical test finds that those U.S. upstream sectors that are highly dependent upon U.S. multinationals for goods sales tend to lobby more as the multinationals’ overseas production and sales increase.

    ABSTRACT: In a recent article, we assessed the impact of exchange rate uncertainty on the trade flows of 152 industries that trade between the United States and Canada. We found that, in the short run, trade flows of almost two-thirds of the industries were affected by exchange rate uncertainty. However, in the long run, less than one-third of the trade flows were affected. Almost all industries that were affected by exchange rate uncertainty were found to be small, except for road motor vehicles—which make up to 20% of both imports and exports. Exports and imports of this largest industry were adversely affected by exchange rate uncertainty.We wonder how the results will change if we account for the “third-country effect,” especially the fluctuation of the U.S. dollar against the currency of the third member of NAFTA, Mexico. We find that, again, in the short run almost two-thirds of the industries are affected by exchange rate uncertainty. However, in the long run, only one-third of the trade flows are affected. The third-country effect seems to be present in the same number of industries, in the short run as well as in the long run.

    ABSTRACT: Assessing the trade impact of road quality improvements is data demanding. In this article, we overcome this limitation by combining highly disaggregated records of export flows with detailed geo-referenced information of the Chilean transport network, including its road quality, as well as real measures of transport costs of shipping goods within the country to measure the trade impact of improving road quality. We find that an improvement in road quality that generates an average reduction in transport costs of 16% increases average exports by around 2%, but we find considerable dispersion in these gains.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this article is to examine the trade imbalance between the United States and China, and how it affects the United States’ trade deficit. Contrary to our expectation, the United States’ imports from China have no significant effect (actually a negative effect) on the United States’ trade deficit.

    ABSTRACT: Are similar types of goods imported to countries that have similar characteristics? It is possible that the total volume of trade is similar and yet the types of goods are different. This article investigates the trading pattern of countries with similar characteristics. More specifically, we analyze the relationship between the import patterns and income distributions of importers. We develop an import similarity index to portray the composition of imports and utilize the idea of “market overlap” (Bohman & Nilsson 2007a) to represent the similarity of income distributions across different importing countries. We provide empirical evidence to support the notion that countries with similar income distributions display similar import patterns.

    ABSTRACT: The short- and long-run implications of real exchange rate volatility on Colombian bilateral trade commodities and non-commodities with its major trade partners are analyzed from the perspectives of the Marshall-Lerner condition, a cointegration relation with other aggregate variables, and the J-curve hypothesis. Long-run equilibrium on the Colombian bilateral balance of trade with a country is more common when the trade volume is denominated in terms of one of the world's main currencies—as is the case of commodity trade and trade with a country whose national currency is one of these currencies. No evidence of the J-curve was found in any of the analyzed Colombian bilateral balances of trade. Opposite to the predictions of the J-curve hypothesis, more common are the scenarios of short-run improvements in the bilateral trade balances following a devaluation than are those with instantaneous declines. Improvements in the terms of trade are found to have a long-run deteriorating impact on the Colombian balance of trade, especially in the case of non-commodity trade. Policy makers should consider that continuous improvements in the Colombian terms of trade, as the ones recently observed, will ultimately be a detriment to the country's current balance of trade surplus.

    ABSTRACT: This article investigates the effects of Japan’s economic partnership agreements (EPAs) on the Japanese import variety with respect to tariff reductions and outward foreign direct investments. The study is focused on the impact of changing tariffs and investments on the range of goods that EPA partners export to Japan for the periods 2005–10 and 2007–12. By using disaggregate tariff and trade data at the nine-digit HS level and by introducing the logit estimates with goods-specific effects, the article finds that both tariff reductions and Japan’s outward foreign direct investment help increase the likeliness of a commodity in the industrial sector to be exported to Japan from its EPA partner countries in the periods 2005–10 and 2007–12.

    ABSTRACT: International trade has been considered one of the main reasons for wealth increase in many countries. In the past, more developed countries were able to reach their current prevailing economic conditions mainly by exporting to less developed countries, especially through capital goods and by financing local projects. More recently, the pendulum has swung in the direction of the developing world, especially toward China and South Korea in East Asia, Brazil and Argentina in Latin America, and Hungary and Turkey in Europe. All of these countries have their particular financial and macro-economic pros and cons, but they have in common an export-driven approach. As exportation requires financing, the capabilities of banking systems and institutionalized export credit agencies have become increasingly important since they enhance these countries’ ability to take part in world trade. In this study, individual country facts and financial systems are analyzed in economic terms, and the support of the export credit agencies will also be evaluated.
