Value creation and trade in 21st century manufacturing

The factors responsible for the spatial reorganization of contemporary manufacturing are presented here and the predictive power of long-standing notions of comparative advantage revisited. While a growing number of commercial tasks and technologies are in principle mobile internationally, giving rise to the perception of evermore footloose manufacturing firms and greater job insecurity, there is much in the modern organization of manufacturing that is both viscid and involves location-specific competitive advantages. This calls for a more nuanced assessment of the impact of an open world trading system on the spatial division of labor and on living standards.

The Emergence of the Pacific Alliance and Implications for Korea

In June 2012, four Latin American coun-tries on the Pacific coast (Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru) declared the establish-ment of a new economic integration initia-tive within the region, and consequently launched the Pacific Alliance. Since then, it has been making rapid progress and is ex-pected to open up new horizons in regional economic integration. Under recent circum-stances in which existing regional commu-nities, such as MERCOSUR (Southern Cone Common Market) and ALBA (Boli-varian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America), are faltering, the Pacific Alliance draws increasing attention from the world as it advocates open regionalism. Of the member countries of the Pacific Alliance, all four have already signed FTAs. The intention of these countries, however, is to deepen existing economic integration through the Pacific Alliance. Narrowing geographical distance by working on the joint project of transportation infrastructure and eliminating cross-border visa require-ments to encourage freer movement of hu-man resources are key pillars of their plan.

The Effects of Trade and Investment Liberalization on Korea’s FDI

While most of RTA talks have incorporated rules on industrial tariff and non-tariff barriers, services, and trade remedies in the past, countries now seek to co-operate on other areas of policymaking, such as rules on investment. This article provides detailed analysis on the effects of trade and investment liberalization on Korea’s inward and outward foreign direct investment (FDI) by collecting all relevant information on substantive investment provisions contained in all Korea FTAs in force as May 2013 and constructing indices of the extensiveness of investment provisions.

Does globalization promote real output? Evidence from quantile cointegration regression

This study examines the non-linear cointegration relationship between real output and KOF indices of globalization (overall index and three main sub-indices) by employing the advanced quantile method. Based on using the annual data of G7 countries, our empirical results provide strong evidence that the cointegrating coefficients follow the time-varying process. Our findings imply that most of these long-run relationships are influenced by potential shocks over time rather than maintaining a constant effect consistently. Overall, the contributions of this study not only stress the importance of quantile property in the cointegration models, but also provide the viewpoint of a long-run effect that overall and three-dimension globalizations act as engines of real output.
