Empirical Methods in International Trade: Essays in Honor of Mordechai Kreininby Michael G. Plummer
This Festschrift contains 13 articles on new approaches to empirical trade analysis and economic integration in honor of the distinguished Michigan State University professor. Collected from the January 2003 conference at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), they include a tribute to Professor Kreinin by editor Plummer (international economics, Johns Hopkins U. SAIS, Bologna). Article topics on trade analysis include measures of similarity and mapping, changes in competitiveness, lessons learned from failures in optimal currency theory, labor market structure and its influence on trade, trade pattern persistence, intra-industry trade in the service sector, and global production networks and regional integration. Article topics on economic integration include the WTO Agreement on Safeguards, organized labor's campaign contribution after NAFTA, Korean investment in China, the impact of NAFTA and trade agreements when "second-order effects" dominate, and a case study of Korea's selective intervention and growth.
