Dynamics of Integration and Economic Growth of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU)

This study examined the monetary and macroeconomic stability perspective for entering into monetary union, using data available on WAMZ countries. It tests the hypothesis that independent monetary and exchange rate policies have been relatively ineffective in influencing domestic activities especially GDP and inflation , and that when they do, they are counter productive. Usiing econometric methods, regression result show that, erstwhile domestic monetary policy, as captured by money supply and credit to government hurt real domestic output of these countries. Indeed, rather than promote growth, it was a source of stagnation. It also confirms that there appear to be a two quarters lag in monetary policy transmission effect with regard to real sector output. The results also show that although expansion in domestic output dampened aggregate consumer prices inflation , it was however, not adequate enough to dampen the fuelling effects of past inflation.

We exploit a unique data from a unified labour force household survey which covers natives and migrants in the seven economic capitals of the region. We estimate the counterfactual wage distributions of UEMOA migrants in absence of migration to evaluate the effect of regional migration. We find that regional migration increases the average wage by 1. The decrease in inequality in the UEMOA region is driven by a reduction in inequality between countries, while the migration effect on within-inequality differs across countries and remains overall small. With general equilibrium effects, the effect on the average wage is smaller because UEMOA migrants tend to be negatively- intermediately selected both at origin and destination and depress the average wage of natives in their destination and lead to a slight increase of the average wage among natives in their sending countries, with the former effect dominating. Moreover, regional migration in the UEMOA mostly flows from countries with low wages to countries with higher wages.

 Хорошо, а что, если… кошка. - Жила! - не задумываясь выпалил Беккер. - Жила. - Да. Кошачья жила. Из нее делают струны для ракеток.

Вы сказали, что самолет улетел почти пустой. Быть может, вы могли бы… - Право же, без фамилии я ничего не могу поделать. - И все-таки, - прервал ее Беккер.
