We investigate the effect of the euro on trade among EMU members. Using various semi-nonparametric methods based on matching, we find that the euro has a statistical and economic impact on trade. The results show that two countries sharing the euro currency trade somewhere between 9% and 14% more than other country-pairs. In addition, we find no evidence of trade diversion due to the euro. 

Investigating the Effects of Euro on Bilateral Trade: a Kernel Matching Approach

The aim of this paper is to estimate the effects of the adoption of the Euro on the bilateral trade of European and OECD countries. Using the most recently available data and a more appropriate

Has the Euro Boosted Intra-Euro Area Exports? Evidence from Industry Data

We estimate the euro effect on export patterns using a panel of industry data from Ireland over the period 1993-2004. Our main innovation is to account for country and industry specific omitted

Why do Estimates of the EMU Effect on Trade Vary so Much?

Larger data sets, with more countries and a longer span of time, exhibit systematically larger effects of European monetary union on trade. I establish this stylized fact with meta-analysis and

On the Specification of Propensity Scores, With Applications to the Analysis of Trade Policies

The use of propensity score methods for program evaluation with nonexperimental data typically requires that the propensity score be estimated, often with a model whose specification is unknown.

The euro’s effect on trade

This study argues that the euro area more than doubled trade among its members, but this process was delayed and fitful. The estimates in this article are close to those obtained by Rose and Frankel,

A non-parametric re-assessment of the trade effects of the euro using value added data

This work presents an original contribution to the debate on the trade effects of the euro, recently revamped by Glick and Rose (2016). It provides a re-assessment of the effects of the euro by

This paper reconsiders the trade effects of the euro, providing a decomposition into its effects on the extensive margin and intensive margin. Furthermore, it relates the more disaggregated estimates

Less Perfect Unions: Average Treatment Effects of Currency Unions and the EMU on Trade Over Time

Estimating the currency union effect on trade has been a contentious topic, with a wide range of estimates on the true size of gains. One fundamental issue underlying many estimates is the lack of a
