    EC Members Fighting About Surplus: VERs, FDI and Japanese Cars1991Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The distribution of consumer and producer surplus among EC members of three different trade regimes - free trade, a voluntary export restraint (VER) and a VER in conjunction with foreign direct investment (FDI) - are derived and compared within the framework of a Nash-Cournot duopoly model. Free trade and a VER are likely to be first and third best for countries without import competing production, while the opposite holds for countries with import competing production. A VER-cum-FDI regime is second best for both. If the producing countries are in majority and set the common VER, while the power to allow FDI remains under national control, the policy equilibrium is one of a VER with or without FDI. A VER-cum-FDI outcome is third best for the EC as a whole.

    Equal Pay for Unequal Work1984Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Swedish labor unions have squeezed wage differentials between heterogeneous labor. This paper explores effects on factor prices, production and employment in the short run, when skilled and unskilled labor is mobile and capital is sector specific, in the medium run, when all factors are mobile, and in the long run, when the ratio of skilled to unskilled labor is determined endogeneously. Contrary to common belief, suich egalitarian wage policies may depress wages of unskilled as well as skilled labor and must raise capital returns in the medium and long run. Demand for unskilled labor will fall over time.

    Turkey and the EU: Politics and Economics of Accession2003Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper identifies and discusses important political and economic aspects of Turkish accession to the EU. Under the present rules, Turkey’s size would give it the greatest number of votes within twenty years and its low income and dependence on agriculture the largest net transfer from other members. Free labor mobility would lead to substantial migration to the present EU; the Turkish immigrant population in Germany may increase from 2 to 3.6 million in thirty years. Most of the economic effects will be felt by Turkey, particularly in agriculture. The main obstacles to accession are not economic, but political, however. Historical experience makes it difficult for Turkey to eliminate the decisive political role of the military, to give Kurds and other minorities cultural rights and uphold basic human rights; these issues are perceived to threaten national unity and territorial integrity. Turkish membership is resisted by many in the EU because Turkey is not considered to be part of Europe geographically and culturally.

    The Young Ohlin on the Theory of "Interregional and International Trade"2000Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Bertil Ohlin's internationel fame as an economist rests to a large extent on his 1933 monograph Interregional and International Trade (Ohlin, 1933). The monograph marked the definitive break with the Ricardian and early neoclassical theory of international trade. Eli Heckschler's contribution of 1919 did not become known to a wider audience until his article was published in English in 1949 (Heckschler, 1949, 1991).

    But Interregional and International Trade was not Ohlin's first formulation of the neoclassical theory of international trade; it was his third. His first attempt is his licentiate dissertation of 1922 and the second his doctoral dissertation published in 1924. The latter was published in English in 19941 under the title The Theory of Trade (Heckschler and Ohlin, 1991). The licentiate dissertation, entitled The Theory of Interregional Exchange has remained unstranslated until very recently (Ohlin, 1999).

    We will trace the development of Ohlin's thinking on international trade by comparing the three works. Special emphasis will be placed in The Theory of Interregional Exchange since it is the first and practically unknown. We have discussed and compared The Theory of Trade and Interregional and International Trade elsewhere (Flam and Flanders, 1991).

    EMU Effects on International Trade and Investment2000Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The partial effect of nominal exchange rate volatility on exports from each EMU member to the rest of the EMU is estimated on annual data for 1967-1997, using modern time series methods. The long run revelations between exhange rate volatility and exports are mostly negative and in several cases insignificantly different from zero. Thus, these estimates do not provide much support for the hypothesis that the elimination of nominal exchange rate volatility will significantly increase trade within the EMU. However, the EMU will presumably lead to geographical concentration of production and therefore indirectly to increased trade within the EMU and - during a transitional stage - to increased foreign direct investment, both within the EMU and between the EMU and the rest of the world.

    Euro Effects on the Intensive and Extensive Margins of Trade2006Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We estimate that the euro has increased trade within the eurozone by about 26 per cent and trade between the eurozone and outsiders by about 12 per cent on average for the years 2002-2005 compared to 1995-1998. The percentage increases were smaller for products that were exported every year during the sample period than for products that were not, indicating significant and substantial effects on the extensive margin of trade. The euro effects were concentrated to semi-finished and finished products, in particular to industries with highly processed products such as pharmaceuticals and machinery.

    Why do Pre-Tax Car Prices Differ so much Across European Countries?1995Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The European car market is segmented by regulatory measures that support price discrimination by manufacturers and make consumer arbitrage difficult and costly. In a sample covering 43 models making up 80% of car sales in 11 countries in 1989-1992, we find that the average standard deviation of pre-tax prices across markets is 14%. The difference between the maximum price is typically about 50% of the average price. The price discrimination seems to be driven largely by taxes, tariffs and import quotas. For example, a quota raises the pre-tax price of the average Japanese car by 12% and of the average competing European car by 7%.

    When Bad Quality is Good Policy1987Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    We investigate product quality under different market forms (monopoly vs. perfect competition) and under different risk-sharing regimes (replacement warranty vs. no warranty). Because of our particular representation of quality we can determine optimal quality and optimal risk-sharing within one single model. Quality differes between risk-sharing regimes and not between market forms, but the market form determines optimal risk-sharing and therefore optimal quality. it can be optimal to place all risk with the risk-averse consumer instead of with the risk-neutral prducer(s). Given the market form, the risk-sharing regime that is optimal for the producer(s) is also optimal for the consumers.

    Optimal Subsidies to Declining Industries: Efficiency and Equity Considerations1982Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper consider equity vs. efficiency in a small economy that subsidizes an industry facing falling world market prices. Subsidies keep up output in the short run when wages and factors are rigid. But once introduced subsidies become permanent, because of pressures from vested interests. This creates misallocation of resources in the long run. An optimal efficiency subsidy balances the short-run gains and long-run losses. It should be raised when prices fall if there is full employment initially and lowered if there is unemployment. An optimal distribution subsidy, which aims at maintaining the sxisting income distribution, should always be raised.

    Adverse Selection in Credit Markets and Infant Industry Protectionism1989Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the role for infant industry protection when credit markets suffer from adverse risk selection. We show that asymmetric information about form-specific risk leads to under-funding of the infant industry in a competitive credit market. A small amount of infant industry protection is shown to be welfare improving, and the optimal infant industry tariff is derived. Finally, an alternative government policy of production subsidies is considered under the assumption that the government shares private knowledge with infant industry firms. We argue that a tariff may dominate production subsidies as an entry promoting devise in this context.
