Data

A Supplementary Database of Trade and Welfare Reduction Indexes
This database produces original trade- and welfare-reduction indexes developed from the trade restrictiveness index literature pioneered by James Anderson and Peter Neary in the 1990s, and by using the nominal rates of assistance (NRAs) or consumer tax equivalents (CTEs) estimates for each focus country in the core database, along with value of production and consumption at undistorted prices for each product.
Authors: Kym Anderson and Johanna Croser
Dataset

Banking Crisis and Exports
For the first time since 1982, in 2009, global trade flows will not grow. According to the latest IMF projections global trade in goods and services is expected to drop by 11% during 2009 and to stagnate in year 2010. The recent collapse in exports following the unfolding of the financial crisis has generated new pressing questions about the relationship between banking crises and exports growth.
Authors: Leonardo Iacovone and Veronika Zavacka
Dataset

Global Antidumping 
The Global Antidumping Database hosts newly collected, freely available, detailed data on thirty different national governments’ use of the antidumping (AD) trade policy instrument, as well as all WTO members’ use of safeguard (SG) measures, China-specific transitional safeguard (CSG) measures, and most of the global users of countervailing duties (CVD) into 2009. The information provided in this detailed data base covers roughly 95% of the global use of these particular import-restricting trade remedy instruments.
