A Bayesian spatial probit estimation of Free Trade Agreement contagion

Applied Economics Letters, 2012, vol. 19, issue 6, 579-583

Abstract: This article analyses the spatial interdependence of Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) in a cross-section framework using the Contagion Index proposed by Baldwin and Jaimovich (2010). A Bayesian heteroskedastic probit model is estimated, where a spatial lag is built based on the Contagion Index , finding evidence of interdependence related with a domino-like effect. I compare the results with other spatial specifications previously used in the literature.
