    Summary
    This paper examines the macroeconomic determinants of cross-border M&As. Using a panel data set of bilateral M&A deal values for 101 countries and 17 years ranging from 1989 to 2005, we investigate both home and host country factors that may play an important role in determining the size and direction of M&A flows. Overall, the empirical results suggest that legal and institutional quality and financial market development increase M&A volume across countries. The significant effect of institutions however, may disappear for transactions between countries of the similar stage of the development. (The rest is omitted.)

    Summary
    The purpose of this paper is to derive plausible issues and influences of Korea-China FTA in medical service. This paper overviews current situations in the field of medical expenditure, medical facilites, medical labor forces. The medical expenditure and facilities in Korea, compared to those in OECD members, is stark, but augment in these days. China has suffered from rapid increase in medical expenditure, considerable gap in medical expenditure between urban and rural areas, expansion of profit-making hospitals. In terms of market opening, China has opened markets for medical service with some restrictions while Korea has yet. (The rest is omitted.)

    Summary
    It has been widely recognized that financial liberalization plays an important role in economic development. Although an expanding body of literature has documented this effect across space and time, the channel through which financial liberalization affects the economic growth remains unclear. This paper employs probit and panel regressions to show that financial liberalization is positively associated with economic growth, with the (positive) direct liberalization effect dominating the (negative) indirect crisis effect. Financial liberalization is expected to increase GDP growth by 0.92 percentage point in the whole sample and by 0.99 percentage point in crisis experienced countries, respectively. Financial liberalization contributes to economic growth even when the sample is restricted to countries that experienced financial crises. (The rest is omitted.)

    Summary
    Since China promulgated antidumping regulations in 1997, the number of Chinese antidumping investigations has continued to rise. Among the investigations, Korea is a major antidumping target. As the balance of trade between the two countries becomes increasingly disproportionate, China has actively utilized antidumping regulations to protect its industries. Korea is very likely to bring antidumping issues to the table once the bilateral free trade negotiations between the two countries begin. (The rest is omitted.)
