Blurb/Shorttext:
Although many economists believe that there is a negative correlation between trade barriers and economic growth, the issue is far from resolved. There are studies that have obtained mixed results on the effect of trade barriers on growth. Such results could be due to model misspecification, erroneous methodology or country and world specific conditions. This paper investigates the impact of trade barriers under certain country specific conditions to help determine if such mixed results are at least partially due to different conditions in different countries. The country specific conditions to be investigated are market size, availability of export credits and technological spillovers due to trade. Chapter 1 “The Case of Large vs. Small Economies”, investigates whether market size has any impact on how trade barriers affect economic growth. Chapter 2 “The Case of Export Credits”, looks at the impact of trade barriers on economic growth in the presence of export credits. Chapter 3 “Do Potential Technological Spillovers Matter for How Trade Restrictions Affect Economic Growth?” focuses on the impact of technological spillovers on economic growth due to trade.
