National Bureau of Economic Research. 2
The second National Bureau of Economic Research article must have slipped in by mistake. There, Pinelopi Koujianou Goldberg and Nina Pavcnik in the article entitled "Distributional Effects of Globalization in Developing Countries." In what must be a horrendous blunder, they come to the conclusion, "the evidence has provided little support for the conventional wisdom that trade openness in developing countries would favor the less fortunate." After all, everyone knows that the purpose of expanding trade is an act of generosity, intended only to help the poor.
