In this paper we quantify the ``Cost of Non-Europe'', i.e. the trade-related welfare gains each country member has reaped from the European Union. Thirty years after the terminology of Non-Europe was used to give estimates of the gains from further integration, we use modern versions of the gravity model to estimate the trade creation implied by the EU, and apply those to counterfactual exercises where for instance the EU returns to a ``normal'', shallow-type regional agreement, or reverts to WT...

Le traitement du surendettement, visant a apporter des solutions aux menages en difficulte financiere, a presque trente ans. Le nombre de dossiers deposes, qui avait cru dans les annees 1990 et 2000, a baisse de 30 % depuis 2014, grâce a la legislation contre les pratiques excessives en matiere de credit et a l’amelioration de la solvabilite des menages permise par la baisse des taux et les renegociations de credit. Le cadre legal d’accompagnement des menages surendettes, les modalites de traite...

Many analysts worry about the recent international trade slowdown.After the 2008 financial crisis, international trade of goods and world industrial production grew nearly at the same pace implying a trade elasticity of one. This stands in sharp contrast to the pre-crisis period when global trade increased more than two times faster than industrial production. This Rue de la Banque argues that (1) the long-run elasticity of world trade to income is one indeed, but (2) structural changes in China...

Using an econometric shift-share decomposition, we explain the redistribution of world market shares at the level of the product variety and by technological content. We decompose changes in market shares into structural effects (geographical and sectoral) and a pure performance effect. We regard the EU-27 as an integrated economy, excluding intra-EU trade. Revisiting the competitiveness issue in such a perspective sheds new light on the impact of emerging countries on the reshaping of world tra...

Over the past two decades, international trade has become a privileged engine of growth for much of the developing world. In the wake of the global crisis, countries must pay close attention to their positioning on the global map of trade and production and become aware of how they fare relative to competitors and to their past export performance. To which extent changes in their market shares are driven by exporter own supply-side capacity as opposed to external or compositional factors, dues t...

Over the past two decades, international trade has become a privileged engine of growth for much of the developing world. With the global economy evolving continuously and rapidly, countries must pay close attention to their positioning on the map of global trade and production. Within this framework, countries must also become aware of how they fare relative to competitors and to their past export performance. Of particular importance is the extent to which their performance is driven by export...

This article looks at the regionalization of trade in South America by looking at trends in trade during the 1994--2007 period. It finds that the increasing political will to strengthen regional arrangements, like Mercosur and the Andean Community, has not impacted extensively the overall level of regionalization of trade, which is relatively low and has not changed significantly over the period. Intermediates trade also remains relatively low within the region, which implies that regional produ...

En el ultimo decenio se verifica un significativo incremento de las exportaciones de varios paises de America Latina y el Caribe, hacia destinos dentro y fuera de la region. Dicho incremento de los vinculos comerciales no ha estado acompanado, sin embargo, de un aumento proporcional en las inversiones reciprocas entre los socios comerciales. Este hecho impide aprovechar indudables ventajas, entre las que vale destacar la posibilidad de diversificar y escalar la calidad (upgrade) de los vinculos ...

We take advantage of a novel dataset that incorporates the technological content of each product and its quality to unveil some features of Brazil-China’s trade flows and challenge the view that the emergence of China would imply the deindustrialization of Brazilian exports. We show that Brazil increasingly exports to China products with lower technological content and increasingly imports products with higher technological content. The quality dimension of the dataset reveals that both countrie...

Purpose – The fact that many international companies remain strongly orientated towards their home region has been highlighted in the work of several international business scholars. This work has given rise to the concept of “the liability of inter-regional foreignness”. This paper aims to argue that the data that have so far been exploited in this debate are too aggregated and that more attention needs to be paid to differences between different types of companies if we are to better understan...
