Abstract
This paper characterizes the impact of the adoption of the euro on Swedish export pattern. Present papers present a new method in order to analyze trade patterns by empirically analyze the effects on trade by estimating the changes via the trade margins. In this paper I also use this method in order to analyze if the export of Swedish products has generated new trade in new goods or increased trade in annual exported goods since the adoption of the Euro. The question I want to answer is: How has the Swedish export change, in terms of goods exported, due to the adoption of the euro?
I calculate the question by examine the changes in different products exported to two destination groups (EMU countries and EU15 partners) for two periods. I... (More)
This paper characterizes the impact of the adoption of the euro on Swedish export pattern. Present papers present a new method in order to analyze trade patterns by empirically analyze the effects on trade by estimating the changes via the trade margins. In this paper I also use this method in order to analyze if the export of Swedish products has generated new trade in new goods or increased trade in annual exported goods since the adoption of the Euro. The question I want to answer is: How has the Swedish export change, in terms of goods exported, due to the adoption of the euro?
I calculate the question by examine the changes in different products exported to two destination groups (EMU countries and EU15 partners) for two periods. I found that the common currency, euro, has an impact on the Swedish export in a positive way in average for the years 1997-1999 compared to 2000-2002. The percentage increase was higher for products that were exported every year during the sample period than for products that were introduce in the second period. This indicates significant effects on the intensive margin of trade and smaller effects on the extensive margin. (Less)
