Testing macroeconometric models by Ray C Fair( Book )

14 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and German and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Ray Fair expounds powerful techniques for estimating and analyzing macroeconometric models. He takes advantage of the remarkable decrease in computational costs that has occurred since the early 1980s by implementing such sophisticated techniques as stochastic simulation. Testing Macroeconometric Models also incorporates the assumption of rational expectations in the estimation, solution, and testing of the models. And it presents the latest versions of Fair's models of the economies of the United States and other countries. After estimating and testing the U.S. model, Fair analyzes its properties - including those relevant to economic policymakers: the optimal monetary policy instrument, the effect of a government spending reduction on the government deficit, whether monetary policy is becoming less effective over time, and the sensitivity of policy effects to the assumption of rational expectations. Ray Fair has conducted research on structural macroeconometric models for more than twenty years. With interest increasing in the area, this book will be an essential reference for macroeconomists

Principles of microeconomics by Karl E Case( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Target Market is for the 1 semester principles of microeconomics course. One of the all time best-sellers, this text is widely used because of its careful, streamlined, and intuitive chapter organization. Case & Fair, present a very precise and simplified microeconomic model first, before introducing all the exceptions and subtleties of a more complex economic world. Only after this simplified model is developed, do the authors give a thorough treatment of market imperfections, externalities, public finance, and international economics. (A detailed summary of this approach can be found on the page directly following the inside front cover)

The Cowles Commission approach, real business cycle theories, and new Keynesian economics by Ray C Fair( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cowles Commission approach is reviewed and compared to the approaches of real business cycle (RBC) theorists and new Keynesian economists. It is argued that RBC models are not tested in a serious enough way and that the new Keynesian literature is not empirical enough for testing even to be a serious possibility. Macroeconomics seems to be moving away from its traditional empirical basis, which is sad. This paper argues for returning to the path that was abandoned by most macroeconomists around 1970, namely the specification and testing of structural macroeconometric models
How fast do old men slow down? by Ray C Fair( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study uses data on men's track and field and road racing records by age to estimate the rate at which men slow down with age. For most of the running events (400 meters through the half marathon), the slowdown rate per year is estimated to be .80 percent between ages 35 and 51. At age 51 the rate begins to increase. It is 1.04 percent at age 60, 1.46 percent at age 75, and 2.01 percent at age 95. The slowdown rate is smaller for 100 meters. For the events longer than the half marathon, the rate is smaller through about age 60 and then larger after that. The slowdown rate is generally larger at all ages for the field events. Table 2 shows that the age-factors in Masters Age-Graded Tables are excessively variable and biased against older runners. Tables 3 and 5 present the age-factors implied by this study. These tables can be used to estimate one's projected time or distance by age. They can also be used by race officials for age-graded events. A brief comparison of the present results to results in the physiological literature is also presented in this paper. The main estimation technique used is a combination of the polynomialspline method and the frontier-function method. A number of the events have been pooled to provide more efficient estimates
Estimation of polynomial distributed lags and leads with end point constraints by Donald W. K Andrews( Book )

7 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This paper considers the use of the polynomial distributed lag (PDL) technique when the lag length is estimated rather than fixed. We focus on the case where the degree of the polynomial is fixed, the polynomial is constrained to be zero at a certain lag length q, and q is estimated along with the other parameters. We extend the traditional PDL setup by allowing q to be real-valued rather than integer-valued, and we derive the asymptotic covariance matrix of all the parameter estimates, including the estimate of q. The paper also considers the estimation of distributed leads rather than lags, a case that can arise if expectations are assumed to be rational
