The aim of the present paper is to provide some empirical evidence on the causal relationship between institutions and trade flows in a panel framework. We present a Granger causality test (1969) as well as a Hurlin and Venet (2001) test for panel data using a bilateral trade flows panel that covers 29 years. The issue of zero flows of trade is handled by using a panel Poisson Pseudo-Maximum Likelihood estimator.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||University of Perugia||Copyright (published version):||2011 University of Perugia Electronic Press||Keywords:||Institutional quality;Granger causality test;Panel data;Zero trade flows||DOI:||10.5202/rei.v2i2.28||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed|
