摘要
The objective of my dissertation is to investigate the effects of integration on economic development, in order to explain a few stylized facts characterizing the experience of the European Union and developing countries. In particular, the first two essays analyze the effects of integration through trade and increase in knowledge sharing, and migration, respectively, on regional development in Europe; while the third essay takes into account the effects of capital inflows on financial stability and project financing in developing countries.
In the first chapter, I provide evidence of the existence of convergence clubs among European regions based on regional specialization. Afterward, I give an explanation of these stylized facts based on the process of deeper integration and different regional specialization. I suggest that, if regions with different industrial structure do not benefit in the same measure from international knowledge spillovers, economic integration exacerbates disparities among the regions of a country, even if it accelerates growth and brings convergence among countries. The empirical evidence is supportive of the implications of the model, as well as of the technological mechanism of convergence based on international knowledge spillovers that regard the most advanced sector alone.
The second chapter shows that, if the skill premium is increasing in the average level of human capital of a location and differences in the price of non-traded goods arise endogenously, the more skilled the workers are, the stronger are the economic incentives to migrate towards the richest regions. In contrast, the least skilled workers have incentives to migrate to the poorest regions to minimize their living expenditures. In this context, the self-selection of migrants may determine underdevelopment traps if skills affect total factor productivity and regions start from different economic conditions.
Finally, the third chapter provides a joint explanation of lending booms, banking and balance-of-payments crises that often follow the liberalization of capital movements in financial systems dominated by banks. Moreover, I examine the role of domestic underdeveloped financial markets and guarantees on deposits for explaining financial instability and contagion among countries equally rated by international investors, but having different investment opportunities.
