The effect of the Euro on the bilateral trade distribution

Empirical Economics, 2016, vol. 50, issue 1, 17-29

Abstract: This paper investigates whether the introduction of the Euro has affected trade. Contrary to the existing literature and motivated by recent development in trade theory, we apply quantile regressions for panel data to examine the effect of the Euro at moments other than the conditional mean of the trade flow distribution. Our results show that even with this more general approach the Euro’s effect on trade remains bleak. Copyright Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2016
