Az agrárkereskedelem dinamikája - A csatlakozó országok esete
[The dynamics of agri-food trade patterns - the accession countries case]

  • Fertő, Imre
  • Hubbard, Lionel J.

A tanulmány a közép-európai országok agrárkereskedelmi szerkezetének dinamikáját vizsgálja meg 1992 és 2000 között. A kereskedelem specializációjának mérésére a klasszikus Balassa-indexet (B-indexet), illetve annak szimmetrikus transzformációját használtuk. A kereskedelem specializációja csökkenő trendet mutat, azaz a közép-európai országok a vizsgált időszakban számos termékcsoportban elveszítették komparatív előnyeiket. A Balassa-indexek közelebbi elemzése azt mutatja, hogy azok konvergáltak egymáshoz, de az egyes termékcsoportokra az indexek nagyobb változékonyságot mutattak. Meglehetősen nagy annak a valószínűsége, hogy egy termékcsoport specializációja csökkenjen, míg annak növekedésére alig van esély. Végezetül, eredményeink nem támogatják az önmegerősítő mechanizmus létét, amely mellett olyan erősen érvel az endogén növekedés és a kereskedelemelmélet egyik része. Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) kód: Q12.
