Baldwin Columbia University Productive factors, such as human and physical capital, accumulate, and trade policy can affect their steady-state levels. This paper complements the dynamic trade literature by providing a basis of comparison between static, CES trade models and a standard dynamic trade model with capital accumulation. However, while in a static steady state economy the free entry condition limits the gains from static selection, in this paper free entry is critical in ensuring dynamic gains from trade. Technological Diffusion and Dynamic Gains from Trade Eleonora Cavallaro∗ and Marcella Mulino∗∗ Abstract We consider a technologically backward country and analyse the implications on competitiveness and long-run growth of the quality content of traded goods.

(iii) Comparing only steady states overstates the gains from trade; the dynamic gains accrue gradually and are about 60 percent of steady-state gains for every country. The six links between trade policy and economic growth incorporated in the empirical model are meant to capture the dominant theories concerning dynamic gains (or possibly losses) from trade. Consequently, in addition to the usual static effects, trade liberalization has dynamic effects on output and welfare as the economy moves to its new We ﬁnd sizable welfare gains from trade, about 5.3% when compared to autarky. To compute the gains from trade in the static model, recall that the income per worker in the static model is given by. Dynamic gains, on the other hand, accrue gradually. 2. rate since when trade causes dynamic selection it has a positive externality on the productivity of future We build an PDF | The author investigates the links between trade policy and economic growth using data from a panel of 57 countries from 1970-89. Dynamic gains from trade can be an important conduit for increased firm-level innovation and productivity, both key components of economic growth. 1. The static gains accrue immediately after a trade liberalization and there is no cost to increas-ing consumption. Dynamic Gains from Trade 1. The idea of expanding a standard static trade model to a dynamic environment and studying the e ects of accumulation of a factor is similar toBaldwin(1992). This paper builds on previous research on the dynamic gains from trade by moving beyond a single country basis to examine impacts on firm-level productivity for a cross-section of countries. By design, the above computations cannot distinguish between static and dynamic gains. The underlying assumption is that together these six channels adequately capture most of the effect of trade … The static gain is computed according to. Results: We conduct a 20% unanticipated, uniform, and permanent trade liberalization in the static model. gains from trade. The gains in our dynamic model are much higher than the static estimates where the effets of GPT-driven innovation are eliminated. Waugh and Ravikumar (2016), who compute the welfare gains from frictionless trade. across countries, except for scale, and the dynamic gain is proportional to the static gain, as in Anderson, Larch, and Yotov (2015).
