Distance(s) and the volatility of international trade(s)

Zeit:
  • 12:00-13:15
Ort: Joan Robinson Room
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002a
Mohrenstraße 58

Abstract: Does distance matter for the volatility of international real and financial transactions? We show that it does, in addition to its well-established relevance for the level of trade. A simple model of trade with endogenous markups shows that demand shocks have a larger impact on trade between more distant countries. We test this implication in two steps, relying on a broad range of real ...

Ort: Joan Robinson Room
DIW Berlin
Room 3.3.002a
Mohrenstraße 58

Germany’s persistent current account surplus reflects to a large extent low domestic private investment. We argue that two factors—the local fragmentation of Germany’s banking system and the role of local banks in local public finance—can help explain why investment is so low. Local public banks dominate lending to small and medium firms in many regions of Germany. At the ...

The global financial and the subsequent European Sovereign Debt crisis have renewed the interest in fiscal policy as a macroeconomic stabilization device because central banks have lost their conventional measure of stimulating the economy through reductions in the policy interest rate.
