Many studies have estimated the trade effect of the euro, but their results vary greatly. This meta‐analysis collects 3323 estimates of the euro effect along with 28 characteristics of estimation design from almost 60 studies and quantitatively examines the literature. The results show evidence of publication bias, but they also suggest that the bias decreases over time. After correcting for the bias, the meta‐analysis shows that the literature is consistent with an effect ranging between 2… Expand
Corporate Tax Competition: A Meta-Analysis
This thesis provides the first meta-analysis investigating the effect of corporate tax competition among states, with special focus on the effect of the corporate tax rate change in competing countryExpand
The effect of the single currency on exports: comparative firm-level evidence
We investigate how adopting the euro affects exports using firm-level data from Slovakia and Estonia. In contrast to previous studies, we focus on countries that adopted the euro individually and hadExpand
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 byExpand
Currency Unions and Global Value Chains: The Impact of the Euro on the Italian Value Added Exports
Many estimates of the effect of the common currency on trade have been made, although a clear answer has yet to be given. This work analyses the trade effect of the euro by providing a twofoldExpand

Return to schooling in China: a large meta-analysis
ABSTRACT In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis of 2,191 empirical results reported in 213 existing studies to estimate the Mincer-type return to schooling in China. The results revealed thatExpand
The political economy of the European Union
The European Union (EU) currently faces many challenges. The departure of the United Kingdom in early 2020 means that for the first time in its history, it lost rather than gained a member state.Expand


Rose effect and the euro: is the magic gone?
This paper presents an updated meta-analysis of the effect of currency unions on trade, focusing on the euro area. Using meta-regression methods such as the funnel asymmetry test, evidence for strongExpand
Reciprocal Trade Agreements in Gravity Models: A Meta-Analysis
The gravity model is a workhorse tool applicable in a wide range of empirical fields. It is regularly used to estimate the impact of reciprocal trade agreements (RTAs) on trade flows betweenExpand
Trade Effects of the Euro: Evidence from Sectoral Data
This paper contributes to the literature on the impact of EMU on trade, adding two new elements. First, we propose a theoretical model for explaining how the euro could have increased trade by theExpand
Do Borders Really Slash Trade? A Meta-Analysis
National borders reduce trade, but most estimates of the border effect seem puzzlingly large. We show that major methodological innovations of the last decade combine to shrink the border effect to aExpand
Habit Formation in Consumption: A Meta-Analysis

The Estimated Trade Effects of the Euro: Why are They Below Those from Historical Monetary Unions Among Smaller Countries?
Andy Rose (2000), followed by many others, has used the gravity model of bilateral trade on a large data set to estimate the trade effects of monetary unions among small countries. The finding hasExpand
I examine 2,735 estimates of the elasticity of intertemporal substitution in consumption (EIS) reported in 169 published studies. The literature shows strong selective reporting: researchers discardExpand
The Euro Effect on Trade is Not as Large as Commonly Thought
Existing studies on the impact of the euro on goods trade report increments between 5% and 40%. These estimates are based on standard panel gravity models for the level of trade. We show that theExpand
