Regional Integration as Diplomacy

By: Maurice Schiff

Economics

One of the few unambiguous static results that has emerged is that, in the case of homogeneous products, an RIA between small countries whose terms of trade are given exogenously will result in a welfare loss for the RIA as a whole as long as its members continue to trade with the rest of the world after forming the RIA (Bhagwati and Panagariya 1996 and Schiff 1997).

Economic Reform, Democracy and Growth during Post-Communist Transition

By: Jan Fidrmuc

Economics

The post-communist transition was associated with two specific phenomena. First, political liberalization was initiated simultaneously with economic reforms. Second, instead of a short Jshaped adjustment, most transition countries experienced deep and protracted recessions.
