Publisher Description

International Trade, Distribution and Development brings together a collection of papers that have sought to assess empirically the impacts of policy measures affecting trade. The carefully selected papers analyze the impact of trade barriers and their removal, with a focus on distributional consequences and economic development. Grounded in rigorous empirical analysis, this book covers a range of policy issues such as impacts of trade on wages, non-tariff barriers, trade preferences, export survival and carbon labelling. An invaluable reference for readers seeking to understand the impact of trade policies, the book also seeks to shed light on future research, especially for research on developing countries.Contents: Introduction and Overview (Paul Brenton) Modelling the Impacts of Trade Barriers and FDI Flows: Quantifying the Economic Effects of Non-Tariff Barriers: The Case of UK Footwear (Alan Winters and Paul Brenton) Voluntary Export Restraints and Rationing: U.K. Leather Footwear Imports from Eastern Europe (Paul Brenton and Alan Winters) Anti-Dumping Policies in the EU and Trade Diversion (Paul Brenton) The Potential Trade Effects of an FTA Between the EU and Russia (Paul Brenton, Natalia Tourdyeva, and John Whalley) Technical Barriers to Trade in the European Union: Importance for Accession Countries (Paul Brenton, John Sheehy, and Marc Vancauteren) Economic Integration and FDI: An Empirical Analysis of Foreign Investment in the EU and in Central and Eastern Europe (Paul Brenton, Francesca Di Mauro, and Matthias Lücke) Assessing the Adjustment Implications of Trade Policy Changes Using the Tariff Reform Impact Simulation Tool (TRIST) (Paul Brenton, Christian Saborowski, Cornelia Staritz, and Erik von Uexkull) Trade, Wages and Adjustment: Outsourcing and Low-Skilled Workers in the UK (Robert Anderton and Paul Brenton) What's Trade Got to Do with It?
