  • International trade policies: An evolutionary perspective

    • Authors: Hany H. MAKHLOUF
      Pages: 1 - 10
      Abstract: Abctract. Cross-border trade has had a long history. It has enriched the lives of trading partners since the rise of ancient civilizations although it was the cause of some conflicts and even wars among trading partners; and between empires, colonies, and nation-states. It has increased cooperation due to harmony of interest between buyers and sellers, but occasionally has intensified rivalry, power-playing, destructive hegemonic impulses and cut- throat competition among neighbors. However, the fact that it has grown steadily through the centuries indicates that its impact on trading partners, near or distant, has been more positive than negative. One indicator of its growth, particularly in recent centuries and decades, is its size as a percentage of total world output. For example, exports, which constituted less than 5% of world GDP until the 1870s, grew to over 17% of world GDP by 1998, according to the World Bank, OECD, and WTO. This paper explores the rise of trade and changes in trade policies from the time of ancient civilizations to the present. It also examines some old and some recent trade disputes/wars. It adds to the literature by providing an overview of the foreign trade environment as well as trade patterns from different perspectives, particularly the perspectives of high versus low wage countries, the North versus the South.Keywords.

The results showed that dividend policy proved to be significantly different in policy between companies that grew high and low and followed the pecking order theory.Keywords.

  • To do list on the Pakistan economy for PTI

    • Authors: Dawood MAMOON
      Pages: 49 - 55
      Abstract: Abctract. The paper explains the unpopular decisions taken by the finance ministry when it approaches international lenders for managing national accounts by providing the case of PTI in its first 100 days in government. PTI has traditionally been vocal critique of IMF loans but had little option other than to approach the lender of last resort. The case study provides the rational for economic management that happens on day to day basis and the long term development goals that may be strengthened by keeping national accounts in balance through lending. Over the years, democracy and rule of law has strengthened in Pakistan, but the economic issues faced by majority population remain the same. The paper suggests that economic freedom is a necessary choice for a country to bring innovation to local production profile. There is a need to develop motivations through research and advocacy in the country so that a path to freer and prosperous markets are charted out that can then lift millions above poverty line through higher economic output. In short legal and democratic institutions are necessary for Pakistan’s progress but they are not a sufficient condition and may binge in absence of thriving private sector. Currently government of Pakistan is planning to implement post infrastructure CPEC projects. This paper gives a comprehensive guideline to implement CPEC projects especially that relate to Special Economic Zones through developing local industrial clusters while also developing human capital by investing in technical training of populations that reside in peripheries of these Economic Zones. This way Pakistan can become part of Chinese value chain much like Vietnam and new era of local innovation takes place.Keywords. PTI, Economic zones, Pakistan’s progress, IMF and Pakistan.JEL.
