1 Everyday Economics: Three Faces of Globalization Disclaimer: The views expressed are those of the presenter and do not necessarily reflect those of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas or the Federal Reserve System.
2 Globalization Globalization is a complex process that allows national resources to become more and more internationally mobile while national economies become increasingly interdependent and integrated.
3 Labor Land Capital Entrepreneurial Ability
4 Is it Globalization? Kevin H. O Rourke and Jeffrey G. Williamson Historians look at: Shipping technologies Port histories Evolution of trading monopolies Rise and fall of trade routes Trade volumes But rarely prices Economists looking for evidence of globalization must go beyond how much and look for evidence of integration and interdependence.
5 Imagine Two Islands Both islands produce fish and coconuts Fishing requires boats (capital) and labor. Coconut production requires trees (land) and labor. Different amounts of resources One island has many trees and few boats. The other island has many boats, but few trees.
6 Before Trade The island with few trees and many boats Expensive coconuts and cheap fish The island with many trees and few boats Expensive fish and cheap coconuts
7 Trade Begins A new navigational device allows trade between the islands. Which island will import fish? Which island will import coconuts?
8 Few trees expensive domestic coconuts before trade Imported foreign coconuts are cheap. Domestic price of coconuts with trade Many boats cheap domestic fish before trade New export markets for fish increases demand. Domestic price of fish with trade
9 Who cares about the price of coconuts? People who own trees (land) People who climb trees (labor) As price of coconuts falls, land owners and labor in that industry are harmed. Who cares about the price of fish? People who own boats (capital) People who sail and fish (labor) As the price of fish rises, boat owners and crew benefit.
10 Is it Globalization? Was some barrier to trade removed? Did transport costs decline? Was there a change in domestic prices? Did prices in resource markets change? Are our islands globalizing? It seems that they are.
11 Before the 19 th Century Transport costs were flat on Atlantic and Asian trade routes. Tobacco was the only trading industry with falling transport costs. Trade consisted of non-competing goods. Expensive luxuries that could bear the high costs of transportation No impact on domestic production No price convergence on key commodities cloves, coffee, pepper and cloth
12 19 th Century Political Developments Britain repealed the Corn Laws. Gunboat diplomacy forced Japan to open its markets. In the 15 years following 1858, Japan s foreign trade grew from zero to 7% of national income. British victory in the Opium Wars caused China to open port cities to trade.
13 19 th Century Innovation Railroads Steamships Suez Canal and Erie Canal Telegraph lines Refrigeration
14 Commodity Price Gaps Decline Bacon Iron Bar Wool Wheat Hides Cotton Measures of price gaps on traded goods decline between , largely based on falling transportation costs.
15 Two Ratios Land Labor Compares the quantity of available resources Wage Land rents Compares the price of available resources
16 Wage-Rent Ratios in Europe Britain Denmark Ireland Sweden France Germany Spain
17 Wage-Rent Ratios in New World Australia Canada USA
18 Wage-Rent Ratios in Developing World Argentina Uruguay Burma Egypt Siam Japan Korea Taiwan
19 Second Era of Globalization Political changes resulted from the idea that economic interdependence would help maintain peace between nations. Multinational negotiations on trade 1947 General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and subsequent trade rounds 1995 World Trade Organization (WTO) Allowed multinational corporations to manage production, delivery and sales worldwide. Services once available only from local providers were now delivered from international producers to buyers throughout the world.
20 Global Integration Trade agreements World Trade Organization Free trade areas North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Broader integration EU and Euro-zone
21 Second Era of Globalization Innovations in transportation Modern container ships Airplanes Innovations in communication Computers, cell phones and the Internet Fiber optic networks Allowed new global markets to emerge.
22 Three Faces of Globalization Trade of goods and services Movement of people Flow of financial capital
23 Trade of Goods and Services Between 1960 and 2000, the share of the world s production that was exported increased from 12% to 25%. Two types of trade Trade of goods Trade of services
24 Trade of Goods Steel used in factories around the world is produced in Europe, North America and Asia. Capital equipment used by businesses is bought and sold in a global market. Cranes and bulldozers move to construction sites far from the place of manufacture. Clothing, textiles and a host of other consumer goods travel internationally to their final destination.
25 Trade of Services A wide range of services, from call center operations to sophisticated financial, engineering, legal, medical and entertainment services. Foreign audiences often account for more than half of Hollywood s box-office revenues from movies. American programmers design video games that are played all over the world. McDonald s and KFC might appear to be on every corner in the US, but they have more restaurants in other countries. American architects design office towers, airports and stadiums in China, Dubai, Canada and other foreign locales. International students enroll at American universities and create jobs for faculty and staff. American forensic experts investigate accidents and crimes around the globe. Foreign tourists visit the US and create job opportunities at hotels, airlines and tourist attractions.
27 Sources of Comparative Advantage Investments in technology Relative supply of key inputs Land (natural resources) Labor (both skilled and unskilled) Capital Government services and regulations
29 Three Faces of Globalization Trade of goods and services Movement of people Flow of financial capital
30 Movement of People Emigration vs. Immigration Emigration the departure of both skilled and unskilled workers from their country of origin Immigration New residents compete for jobs in a variety of fields and change the dynamics of the labor market in the destination country. Late 20 th century was dramatically different from late 19 th and early 20 th.
31 Immigration to the Americas Thousands 2,000 1,800 1,600 1,400 1,200 1, Argentina Brazil Canada United States Four-Country Total
32 Immigration to the Americas Migrations of the 1920s never recovered to the levels of the 1880s, let alone those of the period. Most of the collapse in mass migration was due to a sharp decline in emigration from new source countries in southern & eastern Europe (Austro-Hungarian empire, Russian empire, Iberia, Italy & the Balkans). Emigration from old source countries in northwestern Europe (British Isles, Scandinavia, Low Countries, Germany, France, Switzerland) hardly declined at all. Note that the US saw the biggest decline in immigration.
33 Immigration to the Americas Four pieces of legislation were enacted in the US between 1917 and 1927 with the intent of limiting immigration: the 1917 Literacy Act; the 1921 Quota Act (restricting immigration from Eastern Hemisphere countries); the 1924 Johnson-Reid Act (lowered immigrant quotas from 356,000 to 165,000); the 1927 National Origins Act (set the overall immigration quota at about 150,000 based on national origins of the US population in 1920). Economic conditions also played an important role in dampening migration from the early 1930s to the mid 1940s none of the US country quotas was binding.
34 Three Faces of Globalization Trade of goods and services Movement of people Flow of financial capital
35 Flow of Financial Capital Foreign Direct Investment - the purchase of physical capital such as buildings, tools and machinery in other parts of the world FDI rose from less than $100 billion annually in 1980 to $1.4 trillion in Multinational corporations own facilities and employ workers throughout the world Foreign Portfolio Investment - the purchase of financial assets that originate outside of the buyer s country of residence and are valued in a foreign currency Investors might be banks, pension funds or private individuals seeking the highest return for their investments in both domestic and international financial markets. FPI is somewhat different from FDI because the ownership of these financial assets does not imply a controlling interest or a majority stake in a foreign business. Some fear that foreign portfolio investment can be volatile and lead to financial panics.
36 Flow of Financial Capital Some companies import intermediate products from foreign firms, as is the case with the Boeing plane. Other firms decide to locate their own plants or production facilities in other countries. Rather than producing all its soft drinks in one plant and exporting them from there, Coca Cola builds regional bottling plants across the world to serve its growing international customer base. Japanese and European car manufacturers have built enormous new plants in the US as US automobile companies build facilities in other countries. These firms are seeking both lowest cost resources as inputs to production and freer access to global markets that come from owning a plant in a given region.
38 Foreign Exchange Markets Market where currencies from around the world are bought and sold Largest financial market in the world Operates 24 hours a day Global market If Americans want to buy Japanese products, they must pay the Japanese firm with yen, the Japanese currency. The foreign exchange market allows Americans to buy the necessary yen using US dollars. In other words, Americans are selling US dollars in order to buy yen. Japanese who wish to buy stock in an American company must first buy US dollars. To do so, they must sell yen. The number of US dollars required to buy yen (or the number of yen required to buy a US dollar) is called the exchange rate.
39 Exchange Rates One exchange rate is the reciprocal of another exchange rate. If 1 = $2.00, then $1 = 0.50 As the exchange rate fluctuates, the value (or strength) of each currency is affected. When one currency strengthens, the other weakens.
40 Weakening Dollar / Strengthening Euro Value of $1 = 1.00 (or 1 = $1.00) US dollar $1 = 0.67 (or 1 = $1.50) Falling $1 = 0.50 (or 1 = $2.00)
41 Weakening Euro / Strengthening Dollar Value of 1 = $2.00 ($1 = 0.50) Euro 1 = $1.50 ($1 = 0.67) Falling 1 = $1.00 ($1 = 1.00)
42 A stronger US dollar means US can buy foreign goods more cheaply and US imports will increase Foreigners find US goods more expensive and US exports fall
43 A weaker US dollar means Foreigners can buy American goods more cheaply and US exports will increase Foreigner goods become more expensive for US residents and US imports fall
