Trade openness effects on informality and the real exchange rate channel

Resultado de la investigación: Contribución a una revistaArtículo de revista revisión exhaustiva


The theoretical frameworks that explain the impact of trade openness on informal employment suggest an ambiguous effect. This has been verified in a few countries, based solely on microeconometric evidence. This study contributes to the literature by specifying a macroeconometric relationship for a panel of 17 Latin American countries.
