    UNU-IAS Policy Brief Series    2022年08月

     概要を見る

    This policy brief explores how developed countries can address the needs of vulnerable groups in their climate mitigation actions, focusing on clean energy policies. To realise the full potential of clean energy, social and economic incentives and support measures must be strengthened and widely implemented. The brief provides the following recommendations to guide policymakers in developed countries to achieve a net zero transition that ensures equal access to clean energy and energy efficiency solutions for all: (i) identify vulnerable energy users through data collection and analysis of socio-economic challenges for net zero emissions; (ii) improve governance mechanisms to harmonise climate change policies with socio-economic policies; (iii) enhance support measures for vulnerable energy users to ensure equal access to clean energy through evidence-based information.

  • ANALYSIS OF GLOBAL VALUE CHAIN PARTICIPATION AND WORKERS' WAGES IN THAILAND: A MICRO-LEVEL ANALYSIS

    Upalat Korwatanasakul, Youngmin Baek, Adam Majoe

    SINGAPORE ECONOMIC REVIEW    2022年06月  [査読有り]

    担当区分:筆頭著者

     概要を見る

    This study examines the relationship between global value chain (GVC) participation and workers' wages and the disparities in wage benefits from GVC participation. It employs a pseudo-panel approach to treat endogeneity biases, utilizing pseudo-panel data constructed from the Thai Labour Force Survey, 1995-2011. The results show that GVC participation, on average, induces higher hourly wages through forward and backward linkages. Although forward linkages inclusively and positively affect workers' wages, the wage benefits of backward linkages accrue to particular demographic groups. Therefore, government policies must be designed to promote GVC participation, particularly forward linkages, and support disadvantaged demographic groups facing disproportionate wage effects.

  • Revisiting Asian economic integration: challenges and prospects

    Upalat Korwatanasakul

    JOURNAL OF THE ASIA PACIFIC ECONOMY   27 ( 2 ) 199 - 222  2022年04月  [査読有り]

    担当区分:筆頭著者

     概要を見る

    Covering major Asian economic blocs and dialogues, this study comprehensively reviews the progress of "Asian" economic integration. The empirical results show that comprehensive, continent-wide economic integration in Asia is unlikely to happen soon since integration has been mainly confined to East and Southeast Asia, while other regions are much less integrated and globalised. However, the achievement of gradual integration would mutually benefit all members through capacity building, technological development, labour supply enlargement, and market expansion. With the forthcoming success of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations' single market and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, this study also argues that the attributes proposed in the previous literature, e.g. historical reconciliation, common institution, and economic, politic, and social heterogeneity are irrelevant in the context of Asian economic integration. Instead, the scope, depth, and sequencing of the integration process, coupled with supporting geopolitical factors, largely explain the success of the Asia model.

  • The Effect of Non-Tariff Measures on Global Value Chain Participation

    Upalat Korwatanasakul, Youngmin Baek

    GLOBAL ECONOMIC REVIEW   50 ( 3 ) 193 - 212  2021年07月  [査読有り]

    担当区分:筆頭著者

     概要を見る

    This study takes a novel approach by using an additional compliance requirement indicator as a relative proxy for non-tariff measures (NTMs) to measure the impact of NTMs on global value chain (GVC) participation. We conduct a cross-sectional analysis at the industry level, spanning 30 countries with 19 industrial sectors in the year 2015. Our analysis finds that both NTMs and tariffs have negative impacts on backward GVC participation, and the impact of NTMs is greater than that of tariff measures. Therefore, policies that reduce trade costs from policy barriers, especially NTMs, can help promote participation in GVCs.

     概要を見る

    This study assesses how effective governance institutions and de jure financial openness
    influence the attitude of policy makers in pursuing further financial development by
    allowing the use of cryptocurrency. In other words, we examine the relationships between
    a) de jure openness to cryptocurrency and institutional strength and b) de jure openness
    to cryptocurrency and de jure capital openness. Our main method of estimation is a
    cross-sectional ordered probit model using institutional and macroeconomic data drawn from
    several sources, including the Chinn-Ito index, the World Bank’s Worldwide Governance
    Indicators, and the World Bank’s World Development Indicators, among others, over the
    period 2010‒2018. To measure the de jure openness to cryptocurrency, we compose an index
    of 218 economies by using the current legal and regulatory status of cryptocurrency compiled
    in 2018. Our results show that effective governance institutions are associated
    with a less restrictive regulatory stance on cryptocurrency, whereas financial openness is
    not found to be significant. The results imply that a certain level of institutional quality may
    be necessary before opening up to new forms of financial technology. As cryptocurrency is
    recognized as a risky speculative financial instrument, its current state of many unknowns can
    prevent policy makers from conducting a thorough surveillance to avoid system-wide
    vulnerabilities.

     概要を見る

    This study provides a comprehensive analysis of informal workers in Thailand by utilising the 2006-2019 Thai Informal Employment Survey data. The estimated results reveal the adverse effects of informal employment on workers’ economic and social conditions: 1) the wages gap working against informal employment, confirming that informal employment is not a choice but rather an unavoidable constraint, 2) a negative relationship between informal employment and wages, and 3) a positive association between informal employment and occupational risks. Furthermore, the analyses manifest the importance of schooling in reducing the tendency to work in the informal sector, narrowing the wages gap, and lowering occupational risks and injury severity. However, the estimated results from the pseudo-panel fixed effects regression show no relationship between schooling and informal workers’ wages but a positive relationship between their wages and working experience.

  • Thailand and the Middle-Income Trap: An Analysis from the Global Value Chain Perspective

    2023年  

     概要を見る

    The study provides a critical analysis through the lens of the global value chain (GVC) framework with empirical data on value-added trade to explain Thailand's middle-income trap (MIT) by matching GVC data at the firm, industry, and country levels with the economic development trajectory. The results show that participation in GVCs contributes to initial industrialisation and economic development. However, it does not guarantee subsequent technological upgrading, as there is a risk of falling into the middle-income technology trap (MITT). Thailand is highly dependent on passive technology and specialisation imposed by headquartered countries, trapping the country in the middle of value chains with limited knowledge and technology transfer. As a result, Thailand has fallen into the MITT, where it cannot sustain growth and catch up with the more innovative advanced economies, leading to it falling into the MIT. To escape both traps, the government can consider policies that address inadequate knowledge and technology transfer and the lack of capacity of local firms.

  • The determinants of wage inequality and occupational risk exposure of women in the informal sector: A comprehensive analysis with a case study of Thailand

    2020年  

     概要を見る

    This study provides a comprehensive analysis of informal workers in Thailand by utilising the 2006-2019 Thai Informal Employment Survey data. The estimated results reveal the adverse effects of informal employment on workers’ economic and social conditions as follows: 1) the wages gap working against informal employment, confirming that informal employment is not a choice but rather an unavoidable constraint (Oaxaca-Blinder decomposition), 2) a negative relationship between informal employment and wages, particularly among workers in the lowest tail of the wage distribution (quantile regression), and 3) a positive association between informal employment and occupational risks, particularly injury with high severity (logit and probit models). Therefore, policies to smooth informal workers’ mobility to the formal sector is crucial. Furthermore, the analyses manifest the importance of schooling in reducing the tendency to work in the informal sector, narrowing the wages gap, and lowering occupational risks and injury severity. However, the estimated results from the pseudo-panel fixed effects regression show no relationship between schooling and informal workers’ wages but a positive relationship between their wages and working experience. Thus, policymakers may adopt schooling-related policies to improve informal workers’ welfares and mobility to the formal sector. On the other hand, to help workers who inevitably remain in the informal sector, the government may resort to policies regarding working experience, e.g. on-the-job training programmes, to help informal workers earn more wages and, in turn, become less vulnerable.
