Capital - importing oil exporters : adjustment issues and policy choices (Inglês)

The main unifying feature of the capital-importing oil exporters is the need to utilize petroleum export revenues--available over the next 10 to 20 years to representative members--to effect transitions to sustainable growth trajectories with acceptable distributional characteristics. A second common feature is the nature of the short- to medium-run difficulties of economic management occasioned by oil windfalls. These themes viewed in the aftermath of the first oil shock, and with an eye towards the second, form the subject of this paper. Using a simple two-sector model involving traded and nontraded goods as a conceptual framework, the paper compares the evolution of critical macro and sectoral variables for a number of oil economies after 1974. Similarities and differences in observed government behavior are discussed, as are their consequences for the respective nonoil economies.
