Globalization(American) (or globalisation, British) is the process of international integration arising from the interchange of world views, products, ideas, and other aspects of culture.

Advances in transportation and telecommunications infrastructure, including the rise of the telegraph and its posterity the Internet, are major factors in globalization, generating further interdependence of economic and cultural activities 16 Mar 2016 - The top 10 sources of data for international development research 4 | IMF data site, data mapper and IMF Article IV reports.

Though several scholars place the origins of globalization in modern times, others trace its history long before the European age of discovery and voyages to the “Globalization or globalisation is the trend of increasing interaction between people or companies on a worldwide scale due to advances in transportation and communication technology, nominally beginning with the steamship and the telegraph in the early to mid-1800s.

Globalization is primarily an economic process of integration that has social and cultural aspects, but conflicts and diplomacy are also large parts of the history of globalization. regards” I am planning to write an open review on Eaton and Kortum's two papers cited below.

The first is a well-known paper but the result is highly unrealistic. For example, the authors estimated the cost of moving autarky as 0.

Can anybody believe that the loss is so small when energy inputs are banned from importing? Japanese economy would surely go back at best to the level of the late Meiji period Japan (around 1900).

Is there any arguments, discussion or analysis why Eaton and Kortum model performed so badly? Eaton and Kortum (2012) did not mention US President Donald Trump, after shocking markets with the risk of a global trade war, has come under intense pressure from US business interests and foreign trading partners to moderate his threat to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. Mr Trump dispatched pro-tariff advisers Wilbur Ross and Peter Navarro to TV news studios to defend his plan, while White House aides scrambled to downplay the prospect of a resignation by free trade advocate Gary Cohn, the top White House economic adviser, over the matter.

Mr Cohn is part of a faction in Mr Trump's administration that warned Unemployment must be an important question also in trade theory. However, we see no many papers or books that argued and analyzed involuntary unemployment in trade theory.

Ysohinori” Ricardo's theory of comparative advantages governing trade patterns between two countries is almost universally accepted, yet the new "new" trade theory tells us that countries do not trade, firms do.

And fight for market share among firms is governed by absolute advantages: the winner takes all, the losers file for bankruptcy. At the difference of countries, firms have almost no possibility to reinvent themselves and start a new line of business: physical and human capital is putty-clay, productive capacity is destroyed when enterprises shut down.

In this chapter, Krugman contends that trade problems between low and high waged nations are an illusion and there is nothing to worry from the globalization in trade.

He even analyzes why many eminent writers (including Lester Thurow and Robert Reich) make such ridiculous arguments when they begin to discuss international trade.

” In this paper I have shown that the notion of comparative advantage that can be found in todays economic textbooks is the result of important misinterpretations of Ricardo’s famous numerical example, like the definition of the four numbers and the relationship with the labor theory of value, among others.

I have heard that the two models mirror each other. Could there be a mapping between the two? I think there could be important differences between the two model.

And the Armington approach may provide more flexible control on the substitutability (mobility) “I'm not familiar with Eaton and Kortum, but I know for sure that the Armington specification is essentially the constant elasticity of substitution (CES) formulation, which was generalized by Dixit and Stiglitz in the 1977 AER paper (see https:// /stable/1831401?seq=1#page scan tab contents). ” There are now number of papers with a title which includes "processing trade.

" One can say that processing trade is now a flourishing subject matter in the research of international trade. The concept is now well established but it is enigmatic that this concept remained obscure in the 20th century.

The opposition between absolute and comparative advantage is not a good way to understand international trade.

There are two reasons: historical and theoretical. Of course, theoretical reason is much more important.

(1) Historically this opposition is an invention probably of the 20th century. At least the story that Smith preached absolute advantage theory and Ricardo.

” moreThe events of 2016 saw a re-emergence of nationalist-protectionist ideology in two of the worlds largest economies. In the US Donald Trump with his "America First" sloganising and in Britain the hardening of the Brexit position brought forward an inward looking protectionist ideology not seen since the inter-war years.

Is is really possible to maintain such a position, which by its nature requires exclusionary policies on trade, while simultaneously claiming to support the ideal of the free market? “Simply put, the answer is "no" can not be free markets/independent decision making under protection/intervention, be it social or environmental protection, that is why Adam Smith assumed social and environmental externality neutrality to create the perfect tionism renders Adam Smith's invisible hand a protected market's prisoner,,,,there is no longer a free invisible hand. But I think that the problem you are having linking BREXIT and USEXIT to free markets is that they are not normal democratic outcomes where the view of the majority rules, they are extreme.

” moreTechnological level of a society is supported by its technological capability. The technological capability can be divided into two functions.

Static capability permits the society to keep the present level of the production techniques. Dynamic capability is expressed by its ability to induce innovations.

Innovations comprise (1) changes of productivity or efficiency of production techniques and (2) introduction of new goods and services. They are often studied under the subject National (or Regional) System of Innovations.

However, these two functions are not well differentiated and “I fully agree that static capability, sometimes known as operational capability can help only in improving efficiencey of operations but cannot take care of the external environment. Dynamic capability, also known as strategic capability, helps business in taking care of external environment and is the pillar for sustainability and growth of the business.

” I am looking for long-term time series on intra-EEC/intra-EU trade. I want to see how trade within the common market has developed since the 1950s and how the share of intra-community trade on total EEC/EU trade has evolved.

EUROSTAT only provides recent data (EU15 since 1990, EU28 since 2002, other small variations) and with a fixed EEC/EU composition. The WTO, in turn, provides longer time series (total trade since the 1940s, intra-EEC/EU trade since the 1980s), but still with a fixed EEC/EU composition.

The idea is that decreased manufacturing employment in the US (partly caused by imports from China which are caused by the supply shock in China (Autor, Dorn en Hanson, 2013)), results in lower household income, which in turn increases demand for cheap Chinese products (relative to the demand for US products). in the sense of using the same commuting zones in the US.

Then who has started to argue two-person, two-good economy / model as a situation to study exchange process?I have found in James Mill's Elements of Political Economy (1821) a paragraph like this:To produce exchange, therefore, there must be two countries, and two commodities.

Turgot developed an Austrian-type theory first of Crusoe economics, then of an isolated two-person exchange, which he later expanded to four persons, and then to a complete market. By concentrating first on the economics of an isolated Crusoe figure, Turgot was able to work out economic laws that transcend exchange and apply to all individual actions.

” more Of course I can understand a stronger dollar means cheaper materials, since they are priced in dollar. But what confuses me is that a stronger dollar, at the same time, boosts the purchasing power of the money that such countries receives for selling their commodities, which in my opinion, must makes up for the cheaper price.

So there should be no harm to them unless the price decrease is more than increase in purchasing power of dollar which I think is theoretically unsound. For example if oil price be 50 dollar pb and suddenly the dollar doubles in value, the oil price must, “you are saying that If the value of dollar increases, then imports become cheaper,then purchasing power increases,then demand for imports increases,then total expenditure will increase or decrease depending on how much demand increases, in volumen terms, compared to the reduction in price.

The problem might be that purchasing power is affected by changes in overall activities in the economy, not just by a bilateral /single commodity transactions. Net exporters will on average loose from an appreciation, but gain if the country is highly indebted in other currencies.
