  • What happens when women deal with foreign aid: The case of Sub-Saharan

    • Authors: Valentina Chiariello
      Abstract: This paper seeks to evaluate whether there is any impact on aid effectiveness when there is a different gender composition of parliaments in recipient countries. The sample observed refers to 40 Sub-Saharan African countries over the period 2007-2019. The findings gained demonstrate that a higher presence of women in parliament leads to improvements in the relationship between aid and growth. When controlling for endogeneity problems that can affect the linkages between aid and growth, these results are confirmed. The channel through which their entry into politics seems to bring benefits to economic growth is the social sector, towards which a large part of foreign aid goes.

  • Structural change, open economy and employment: A Structural Change and
           Economic Dynamics approach

    • Authors: Rafael de Acypreste Monteiro Rocha, João Gabriel de Araujo Oliveira
      Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to analyse the effects of international trade on employment, focusing particularly on the case where domestic prices are higher than foreign prices, using Pasinetti’s (1981 and 1993) framework as the basic structure of analysis. It is shown that technological progress affects employment levels through the Kaldor-Verdoorn law by endogenizing productivity growth when national prices are competitive. We conclude that high imports negatively affect employment levels, supporting heterodox views regarding trade openness.

  • Economic complexity, structural transformation and economic growth in a
           regional context: Evidence for Brazil

    • Authors: Felipe Orsolin Teixeira, Fabricio José Missio, Ricardo Dathein
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to verify the effect of economic complexity on the growth and productive transformation of federative units (UFs) in Brazil between 2003 and 2014. We also analyze the factors that determine the economic complexity of these subnational entities. To do this we used different indices of economic complexity (linear and non- linear), as well as system generalized method of moments (GMM-SYS) estimators in dynamic panels to avoid endogeneity problems. The results showed that: i) through the descriptive analysis (both by the linear and the non- linear versions) a positive relationship between the UFs’ economic complexity and economic growth was observed; ii) the econometric analysis showed that measures of economic complexity are positively related to economic growth – however, some of the coefficients did not show statistical significance and the coefficients that represent the non- linear approach showed weak correlation; iii) there is a positive relationship between the real exchange rate at the state level (R$/US$) and the UFs’ productive transformation, such as between the UFs’ productive transformation and the economic complexity.

  • The political economy of reinstating capitalism in Poland: 1989-2020

    • Authors: Jerzy Osiatyński
      Abstract: The article is a contribution to the ongoing series on the future of reformed capitalism. The author attempts to shed some light on the past and the present of capitalism as reinstated in Poland over the years 1989-2020 and on its turn to illiberal democracy since 2015. At the end, the article draws some conclusions on what revisions and additions may be needed in the liberal social-democratic agenda to help it replace the present illiberal regime in Poland.
