Abstract: International political economists, trade specialists and management scholars have long debated how language affects bilateral trade. But these debates have been hindered by non-robust datasets; trade economists often simply ask whether the trading partners speak the same language or not, and code their datasets using this dichotomy. We employ a very different, more robust idea. By examining the similarity between languages, and accepting that many nation-states’ populations are mulitilingual, our model includes the cultural cleavages between bilateral trading partners which result from different language patterns.

Patterns of international trade have a profound effect on economic development and the growing disparity between nation-states. By introducing a new, more accurate, language dataset developed by prominent scholars from lexico-statistics, we expand our understanding of trade. We employ this dataset in a gravity equation model. Results confirm that bilateral trade increases when nation-states’ populations can directly communicate. This result is robust whether the language spoken is the official language, or simply a language spoken by a significant part of the populations of two trading partners.

It is our view that, while linguistic differences are understood to lead to cleavage and conflict by international studies scholars, a robust dataset has not been employed to systematically explain this effect. We introduce such a dataset which may be employed in other analyses such as diplomatic negotiation and dyadic conflict.

"War and Trade, Katou Kiyomasa's Luzon Trade and Toyotomi Hideyoshi's Maritime Trade Policy during the Korea War" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the AAS-in-Asia, Kyoto, Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan, <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1103028_index.html>

Abstract: Katou Kiyomasa's Luzon trade during Japanese invasion of Korea (1592-1599) could be easily understood as an operation to secure supply of saltpeter and other essential materials for Japan's war effort. Before the outbreak of the Korean War, saltpeter and other munitions were not only imported to Japan by Portuguese ships from Macao, but also smuggled by Fujian traders. Fujian maritime merchants, who expanded their trading network linking Fujian, Luzon and Kyushu, by violating the Ming court’s ban of voyages to Japan. But Hideyoshi`s invasion of Korea resulted in the overall prohibition of maritime trade in Fujian, and brought about the severe decrease of supplies of saltpeter and other necessities for the conduct of the war. Kato Kiyomasa’s Luzon trade was planned under these circumstances, and it was one of the initiative trials of the direct trade between Kyushu and Southeast Asia, which rapidly expanded in the early seventeenth century.

"Trade and Non-Trade Values at the WTO: An Assessment of how “Trade and…” Issues have been Dealt with by Members" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISA - ABRI JOINT INTERNATIONAL MEETING, Pontifical Catholic University, Rio de Janeiro Campus (PUC-Rio), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Jul 22, 2009 <Not Available>. 2019-08-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p380931_index.html>

Abstract: The multilateral trade system is concerned primarily with economic liberalization, but the link between trade and non trade values, as human rights and environment protection, has been increasingly object of concern to scholars and practitioners alike. GATT Article XX is widely referred to as expression of this link, but there currently are many other links between trade and non trade values within the World Trade Organization (WTO). Most of the literature on the issue, though, has normative approaches, concerning either values that should be included in/excluded from WTO’s agenda or how conflicts related to trade and non trade values should be decided by the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB). It is noticeable that “trade and…” conflicts have reached the WTO’s agenda primarily through the dispute settlement system. “Trade and…” disputes, though, amount to only around 10% of the disputes initiated by members in the DSB thus far (and the number of this kind of dispute has been decreasing since 2003), and Members have been able to settle their disputes by negotiation in most cases. Against, this backdrop, this paper aims at: (1) showing that, notwithstanding the many possible conflicts and links envisaged by scholars, only a few issues related to trade and non trade conflicts have reached the WTO decision making; (2) describing how members have had recourse to the WTO and, in a few cases, other regimes/IGOs to pursue their interests with regard to those issues; and (3) outlining the effects of this behavior to relationship between trade and non trade values in the WTO in general.

Abstract: This study analyzes trading and tipping activities of corporate insiders and misappropriators in insider trading litigation decided by federal courts from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2014 (N=83). The study examines civil enforcement proceedings filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and criminal cases filed by the Department of Justice to determine patterns, profile, profits, and settlement outcomes in these proceedings. Results of statistical analysis indicated that a defendant in a civil or criminal insider trading case is more likely to trade on the information when he receives a direct, financial benefit from breaching his duty of confidentiality. The defendant-tipper was also more likely to pass on the information to a tippee who was a close personal friend, business associate, or family member (chi-square is significant at the p<.01). The average amount of profit of a defendant tipper (in both civil and criminal proceedings) was $4,103,459.53 while the average amount of his or her settlement with the SEC was only $602,252.09. On the other hand, the average amount of profit of a defendant tippee was $11,855,900.31 while the average amount of his or her settlement with the SEC was only $1,545,520.82.
