An Intra-Industry Analysis Of Nebraska’s Trade With Japan, India, And China, 2002-2017
The main objective of the paper is to analyze Nebraska’s trade with Japan, India, and China by estimating growth rates and making intra-industry trade estimates for the period 2002-2017. The principal findings from the study are that Nebraska’s trade with China, India, and Japan has grown at different rates and is more inter-industry than intra-industry. The study uses data from the Department of Commerce’s USA Online for this analysis. There are some inherent problems with that data that limit this study’s conclusions. Thus, this study is essentially exploratory and requires a deeper analysis with more extended data.
