|Title:||Measuring the Impact of American Citizens Studying Abroad, Institutional Reform and American Values on United States Trade Performance|
Based on the theory of the neo-institutional school states that institution and institutional changes affect economic performance, this study examines the impact of culture and American values of free trade on United States' economic performance by building an econometric model. Thus, the value independent variables could be measured by this new approach. The approach taken is Cultural dimensions defined by Hofstede and an econometric model was first build by Dr. Shih. The U.S trade with six regions and thirty countries for the period of 1990 to 2004 were examined. Significant results indicate countries that host American students are prime locations of U.S. import and export. Other significant indicators of economic performance are WTO membership, population and official language. A regional study pinpoints areas where more focus is needed by sending U.S. students to study and the effect of regional trade agreements on U.S. trade.
