Working Paper
The Olympic effect

Economists are skeptical about the economic benefits of hosting "mega-events" such as the Olympic Games or the World Cup, since such activities have considerable cost and seem to yield few tangible benefits. These doubts are rarely shared by policymakers and the population, who are typically quite enthusiastic about such spectacles. In this paper, we reconcile these positions by examining the economic impact of hosting mega-events like the Olympics; we focus on trade. Using a variety of trade models, we show that hosting a mega-event like the Olympics has a positive impact on national ...

The rise of U.S. exports to East Asia and Latin America

Exports have become an increasingly important source of revenue for both national and regional firms in the United States. U.S. exports are rising rapidly, especially from the Midwest. As a result, national and district firms must be ever more attentive to changes in U.S. export markets. One such change is the rapid growth of U.S. export markets in the developing nations of East Asia and Latin America.> Schmidt analyzes current trends in the geographic distribution of U.S. exports and identifies the primary growth markets for U.S. exports in the years ahead.

Trade wedges, inventories, and international business cycles

The large, persistent fluctuations in international trade that cannot be explained in standard models by changes in expenditures and relative prices are often attributed to trade wedges.

Moreover, matching trade flows alters the international transmission of business cycles. Specifically, real net exports become ...
