21 June 2012: The Euro crisis and its implications for the rest of the world

Uri Dadush
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

The debt crisis that began in Greece quickly engulfed Europe and now threatens the global recovery and the future of the euro. While ballooning public debt may be the clearest manifestation of the Euro crisis, its roots go much deeper—to the secular loss of competitiveness that has been associated with euro adoption in countries including Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.

5 June 2012: Gains from Offshoring: Evidence from New US Microdata

Jagadeesh Sivadasan
University of Michigan

We exploit a unique dataset on offshoring-induced employment layoff
events, which we link to rich establishment-level US Census Bureau
micro-data, to analyze the impact of offshoring on a number of
outcomes including employment, wages, sales, capital and productivity,
at two distinct levels: (i) on the affected plant, and (ii) on the
affected firm, and in particular, other establishments owned by
multi-unit firms, relative to control groups of industry peers. We
find significant difference-in-differences declines in employment,
output and (to a lesser extent in) capital at both the plant and
firm-level. Contrary to some theoretical models, we find very little
evidence for increases in productivity or wages at the firm-level.
