ITIF Publication, Events and News Articles http://www.itif.org/all/feed/feed en The Global Mercantilist Index: A New Approach to Ranking Nations http://www.itif.org/events/global-mercantilist-index-new-approach-ranking-nations <p>Countries’ use of mercantilist policies in recent years has expanded dramatically, particularly in emerging economies such as Brazil, China, and India. These practices, such as forced technology transfer or local production as a condition of market access, intellectual property (IP) theft, compulsory licensing of IP, restrictions on cross-border data flows, and currency manipulation, all distort trade and investment and damage the global economy.</p><p>This event will feature the release of a major report, the “Global Mercantilist Index” (GMI), which uses a new comprehensive method to rank nations on mercantilist policies, while also proposing new policy tools to address the problem.The event will further discuss how the United States can lead development of a new global trade regime that favors rules- and market-based trade while supporting the modern knowledge- and innovation-based global economy.</p><p>This event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules.

But in reality, our economy is a constantly evolving, complex ecosystem. The U.S. economy of 2014 is different, not just larger, than the economy of 2013. Understanding that we are dealing with an evolutionary rather than a static economy has significant implications for the conceptualization of both economics and economic policy.</p> <p>ITIF President Robert Atkinson will present the findings from a new report that contrasts an evolutionary economic view with conventional economics, analyzes the three main sources of U.S. economic evolutionary change, and presents eight key principles for an evolutionary economics-inspired economic policy.</p><p>Additional respondents to be announced.</p><p>The event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules<span style="font-family: arial; color: #7d6a55;"><span style="font-size: 12.727272033691406px; line-height: 18px;">.&nbsp;</span></span><strong>A live webcast will be available on this page. </strong>Lunch will be provided.&nbsp;</p> Economic Theory Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:00:00 +0000 akey 5930 at http://www.itif.org The Export-Import Bank’s Vital Role in Supporting U.S. Traded Sector Competitiveness http://www.itif.org/events/export-import-bank-s-vital-role-supporting-us-traded-sector-competitiveness <p>As the official export credit agency of the United States, the U.S. Export-Import (Ex-Im) Bank plays a vital role in fostering U.S. traded sector competitiveness and facilitating exports of innovative U.S. products and services to foreign markets. Yet the Ex-Im Bank’s very existence is threatened by a variety of ideological and special interest critics who oppose the Banks’ very existence. But as ITIF explains in a new paper, <a href="http://www2.itif.org/2014-export-import-role-traded-sector.pdf"><em>The Export-Import Bank’s Vital Role in Supporting U.S. Traded Sector Competitiveness</em></a>, the criticism levied against the Ex-Im Bank are fallacious and unconvincing, especially in light of the catalytic role it plays in supporting exports—and over 200,000 American jobs each year—that otherwise simply would not occur. At the same time, America needs the Ex-Im Bank now more than ever, as foreign export credit competition continues to intensify, with competitors such as China and Germany distributing five to seven times as much export credit as the United States annually.</p> <p>With negotiations to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank at a critical juncture, please join us as ITIF, Congressman Denny Heck, and a distinguished group of panelists sets the fact straight about the Ex-Im Bank and makes the case for Congressional reauthorization of this important agency.</p><p>The event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules.&nbsp;</p> Trade Fri, 19 Sep 2014 17:00:00 +0000 akey 6012 at http://www.itif.org Creating Value from Government Data: The Next Wave of Data-Driven Innovation http://www.itif.org/events/creating-value-government-data-next-wave-data-driven-innovation <div id="_mcePaste" style="position: absolute; left: -10000px; top: 0px; width: 1px; height: 1px; overflow: hidden;">Data-driven innovation represents an enormous opportunity for government agencies to become more efficient and effective.

Many of these websites, such as cyberlockers and streaming video sites, rely on ad networks to generate a handsome profit off of the works of content creators. &nbsp;Until now, the size of these earnings has been unknown. Join ITIF for a presentation from David Price, head of piracy intelligence at the UK firm NetNames, who will present the first major assessment of how much ad revenue is generated by these piracy websites.

In the past few months, the United Kingdom has taken steps to have ISPs block pornography by default; Spain is considering legislation that would tax news aggregation websites; Canada is enacting a new law to curtail spam; and Singapore has just passed a bill that would require ISPs to block all websites, domestic and foreign, containing significant amounts of copyright infringing content. Even though the importance of the Internet to the global economy and society continues to grow each day, collectively nations have made little progress in creating a framework for resolving the many conflicts over Internet policy that inevitably occur between sovereign nations.<br> <br> In a new report to be released at this event, ITIF President Rob Atkinson and Senior Analyst Daniel Castro argue that the dominant approaches to Internet policy, which typically calls for either universal rules applied to all nations or a complete free-for-all among countries—fail to provide a pragmatic path forward to resolve the inevitable conflicts that arise. Instead, they put forth a new framework for evaluating cross-border Internet policy conflicts that respects both the global nature of the Internet and national laws and norms.</p><p>Read the report,
