  • Who Pays More in the International Market? An Examination of Terms of Trade of the Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)   Order a copy of this article
    by Philemon Oyewole 
    Abstract: Recent developments around the world have necessitated the importance of developing countries to intensify their participation in the global marketplace. We would like to know, however, if the playing field is level for all, especially for developing countries. Are some paying more than their fair share in the international market? To this end, this paper examines the terms of trade of the developing countries of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and analyses these in relation to their tariffs and relative volume of trade in the international market. Results show that among the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. Antigua and Barbuda pays the most, while Venezuela pays the least in the international market. A negative and significant correlation exists between net barter terms of trade and volume of trade as percentage of GDP but not with tariffs. Policy implications of these results for the governments of the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean are discussed, and directions for future research are given.

  • Factors influencing the export of Hungarian SMEs
    by Andrea Elteto, Beata Udvari 
    Abstract: For small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) export is the most important way of internationalization. During the global crisis of 2008-2009, world trade decreased dramatically, but since then the economic environment has become more predictable with providing new export opportunities also for the SMEs. This research aims to identify the export promoting factors and barriers that the Hungarian SMEs face, and to analyze how these factors possibly changed to those before the crisis. We conducted a primary research among Hungarian SMEs, resulting in a sample of 148 firms and we present their opinions on internal and external factors influencing export. For the sake of comparison, we describe the results of some similar researches in the Visegrád countries. Our results partly confirm the findings of previous surveys. The importance of managerial behavior and capabilities still stands out, while the financial constraints seem to have decreased in comparison with the previous years. Therefore, we conclude that the development of human resources and education is a key to improve the export performance of SMEs.
