Euro Effects on the Intensive and Extensive Margins of Trade
() and Håkan Nordström
Abstract: We estimate that the euro has increased trade within the
eurozone by about 26 per cent and trade between the eurozone and outsiders
by about 12 per cent on average for the years 2002-2005 compared to
1995-1998. The percentage increases were maller for products that were
exported every year during the sample period than for products that were
not, indicating significant and substantial effects on the extensive margin
of trade. The euro effects were concentrated to semi-finished and finished
products, in particular to industries with highly processed products such
as pharmaceuticals and machinery.
