Dynamic estimation of the relationship between trade openness and output growth in Asia

This paper studies the relationship between trade openness and output growth for a sample of twenty-three Asian countries using both a static OLS and a dynamic ECM estimation models. At the country specific level, the findings of this study provide robust empirical evidence indicating that higher revealed trade openness is not the main engine explaining the Asian economic-growth miracle.

Redesigning the Indian Food Security System through E-Governance

The link between e-governance and development has been widely leveraged for policy formulation in India, however, little is known about its application to food security. This paper fills the gap with a study of Kerala, where the Public Distribution System (PDS), the main national food security program, has been digitalized in its main functions. Findings reveal that the digital program has been purposefully devised to combat the problem of diversion (“rice mafia”) of PDS goods to the market: however, issues of partial coverage and mistargeting remain. Lessons are drawn for other states computerizing the PDS and their social safety nets.

Domestic Market Integration and Regional Economic Growth—China’s Recent Experience from 1995–2011

This paper constructs an enhanced indicator for trade barrier and examines the endogenous relationship between market integration and regional economies across China from 1995 to 2011. Beyond the current literature, this study shows: the endogenous relationship is significant, reflecting a virtuous cycle; domestic openness contributes to the economies in the central region more than in the other regions; the feedback effect is stronger in the eastern and central regions than in the western and northeastern; domestic openness and regional economies are adversely affected by state-owned enterprises and government non-productive expenditure. Several policy implications relevant to Chinese economy are drawn from the findings.
