This paper reviews Nigeria’s non-oil export performance during the period 1970-90, analyzes the factors underlying the dismal performance, and estimates the supply-price elasticity of the exports for both the short and long run. A distinguishing feature of the analysis is the incorporation of the effect of domestic demand in the export supply equation for agricultural commodity exports--a feature usually reserved for the manufactured goods where it is generally assumed that domestic demand competes with export demand. The results provide evidence of the adverse effects of restrictive government policies on exports and underscore the utility of pricing policy in eliciting export supply.

region that considerably lags other Emerging Market regions such as East Asia and Eastern Europe. Moreover, the level of export per capita is low relative to Guatemala’s income level. This suggests that non-geographic export determinants in Guatemala are weak, and this paper seeks to identify and quantify these possible weaknesses based on the existing literature on export determinants. 2. Guatemala’s key export industries have stagnated lately . Improvements in non-hydrocarbon/mineral (NHM) exports would benefit the economy at large, especially if driven by more

competitiveness to export growth over 2012–13 would have reduced by at least one-quarter compared to the baseline scenario. An additional simple counterfactual experiment, assuming greater labor market flexibility since 2008, is described in Box 1 . Alternative Counterfactual Scenarios: Contribution of ULC-Based REER to Real Export Growth (Percentage points) Notes: LMR=Labor market reforms. The charts are based on this paper’s regression analysis of export determinants, and on the OECD’s (2014) estimates of the maximum and minimum effects of the 2012 labor market
