Openness and Growth: A Time-Series, Cross-Country Analysis for Developing Countries

Ann Harrison ()

No 5221, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: This paper draws together a variety of openness measures to test the association between openness and growth. Although the correlation across different types of openness is not always strong, there is generally a positive association between growth and different measures of openness. The strength of the association depends on whether the specification uses cross-section or panel data (which combines cross- section and time series). For industrializing countries, which have exhibited significant fluctuations in trade regimes over time, long run averages may not serve as very meaningful indicators of policy.
