The next section lists some of the alternative proposals to an explanation of the Penn effectbut there are significant econometric problems with testing the BS-hypothesis, and the lack of strong evidence for it between modern economies may not refute it, or imply that it produces a small effect.

David, International Economic Transactions: Analysis of empirical data shows that the vast majority of the evidence supports the HBS model.

Balassa–Samuelson effect – Wikipedia
This observation about the systematic differences in consumer prices is called the ” Penn effect “. The Balassa—Samuelson hypothesis is the proposition that this can be explained by the greater variation in productivitybetween developed and less developed countries, in the traded goods’ sectors than balaswa the non-tradable effst. Note that the lack of a country specific subscript on the price of tradables means that tradable goods prices are equalized between the two countries.
Download full text from publisher File URL: Even without Free trade it may be harder to balqssa the productivity in the service sector as rapidly as in mass-production, so if money exchange rates are still based on the output of mass production the differentials in price level could still be caused by the Balassa—Samuelson effect. General contact details of provider: This page was last edited on 17 Septemberat Most professional samhelson accept that the Balassa—Samuelson effect model has some merit.
By the law of one priceentirely tradable goods cannot vary greatly in price by location because buyers can source from the lowest cost location. When requesting a correction, please mention this item’s handle: There is some econometric evidence that the causality from exchange rates to productivity is more significant than the reverse, i. Panel data and time series techniques have crowded out old cross-section tests, demand side and terms of trade variables have emerged as explanatory variables, new econometric methodologies have replaced old ones, and recent improvements with endogenous tradability have provided direction for future samuelaon.

Consensus has been reached on the testing of internal and external HBS effects vis a vis a numeraire country with a strong reservation against the purchasing power parity assumption in the tradable sector. Since capital inflow is associated with high-income states e. Exchange rate movements are believed by some to affect productivity; if this is true then regressing RER movements on differential productivity growth will be ‘polluted’ by a totally different relationship between the variables 1.
A Survey of Empirical Evidence” — via ideas. This alone may shift the consumer price indexand might make the non-trade sector look relatively less sameulson than it had been balsasa demand was lower; if service quality rather than quantity follows diminishing returns to labour input, a general demand for a higher service quality automatically produces a reduction in per-capita productivity.
In order to protect domestic producers import barriers are raised, allowing the local price for the traded good to rise beyond the international price. However most services must be delivered locally e.
Although some negative results have been returned, there has been strong support for the predictions of a cointegration between relative productivity and relative prices within a country and between countries, while the interpretation of evidence for cointegration between real exchange rate and relative productivity has been much more controversial.
The Penn effect is that PPP-deviations usually occur in the same direction: Capital inflows say to the Netherlands may stimulate currency appreciation through demand for money. This is due to the effect’s prediction that the CPI will increase by more in the former case.
Over time, the testing of the HBS model has evolved quite dramatically.
A Reappraisal”, Journal of Political Economy72 6: For simplicity assume that productivity, as measured by marginal product in terms of goods produced of labor, in the nontradable sector is equal between countries and normalized to one. Although pub beer is transportable, the pub itself is not. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

However, this reasoning is slightly different from the pure BS-hypothesis, because the goods being produced are ‘traded-goods’, even though protectionist measures mean that they are more expensive on the domestic market than the international market, so they will not be ” traded ” internationally .
Where the subscript “t” denotes the tradables sector.
