  6. International Institutions in the New Global Economy

    International Institutions in the New Global Economy

    Edited by Lisa L. Martin
    International institutions and formal international organizations lie at the heart of the new global economy. International economic interactions occur within a framework of norms, rules and organizations, and an appreciation of this institutionalization is essential for understanding the functioning of the new global economy. The growth of the institutional framework has attracted extensive attention from political scientists, who in recent years have developed more nuanced theories of the international organizations’ form, function and effects, and have begun to subject these theories to systematic empirical scrutiny. For this significant collection Lisa Martin has brought together the most important articles, published since 1982, on the role of institutions in the global economy and has provided a scholarly new introduction which gives a comprehensive overview of the subject.

  9. The WTO and Technical Barriers to Trade

    The WTO and Technical Barriers to Trade

    Edited by Spencer Henson, John S. Wilson
    This authoritative volume brings together for the first time the foremost research and commentary on technical barriers to trade. It explores the major theoretical issues associated with analysis of the impact of technical measures on trade in goods and the challenges associated with attempts to quantify impacts on trade flows. Previous empirical analyses of the impact of technical barriers on trade in goods in general are then presented. This is followed by in-depth coverage of the trade effects of sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) measures, an area where analysis is particularly challenging. Finally, the volume concludes by exploring institutional efforts to overcome the impact of technical barriers, including harmonization of standards and the role of the WTO. Learn More

  15. Empirical Methods in International Trade

    Empirical Methods in International Trade

    Edited by Michael G. Plummer
    Internationalization of the world economy has made trade a key factor in the growth potential of nearly every nation’s economy. Hence, economists have become increasingly interested in the determinants of international trade and competitiveness. Empirical Methods in International Trade captures the many aspects of this trend in globalization through practical techniques well-founded in economic theory. The authors, comprising some of the most influential applied international economists of their generation, use cutting-edge models to develop empirical approaches to critical aspects of economic interchange. These approaches are developed and explained carefully with the goal of making them accessible to a wide audience. Learn More

  16. Foreign Direct Investment

    Foreign Direct Investment

    Edited by Yingqi A. Wei, V. N. Balasubramanyam
    This book consists of detailed case studies of foreign direct investment (FDI) in China, India, Ireland, Malaysia, Mexico and Sub-Saharan Africa, providing a critical review of the determinants and impact of FDI on growth and development, employment, technology transfer and trade. The expert contributors examine a range of controversial issues including the contribution of the relatively large volume of FDI in China to its growth, whether India should fully liberalise its FDI regime and the impact of Mexico’s membership of NAFTA on the volume of FDI it has attracted. Malaysia’s economic policies, which appear to have attracted relatively large volumes of FDI but failed to generate the hoped for transmission of technology and skills are also questioned, along with the role of corruption in limiting the contribution of FDI to achieving social goals in Sub-Saharan Africa. The impressive record of the Irish Republic in attracting and harnessing FDI to development objectives is examined closely and provides a detailed analysis of policies likely to promote efficient utilisation of FDI.

    International Institutions and Multinational Enterprises

    Edited by John-ren Chen
    This book provides rigorous analysis of the wide range of questions surrounding the role of international institutions in governing global business, especially multinational enterprises (MNEs). The analysis, both theoretical and empirical, focuses on the corporate governance of MNEs and to what extent their management takes into account the negative effects of their activities. Also discussed are: how nation states and international institutions control the activities of MNEs, and how the role and strategies of international institutions can be changed to minimise any negative effects without hampering the positive aspects and effects of MNEs.
