Global warming and agriculture : impact estimates by country by William R Cline( )

20 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How will global warming affect developing countries, which rely heavily on agriculture as a source of economic growth? William Cline asserts that developing countries have more at risk, such as their production capacity, than industrial countries as global warming worsens. Using general circulation models, Cline boldly examines 2071-2100 to forecast the effects of global warming and its economic impact into the next decade. This detailed study: outlines existing studies on climate change; Cline finds the Stern Report for the UK government's estimates most reliable; estimates projected changes in temperature, precipitation, and agricultural capacity; and concludes with policy recommendations. Cline finds that agricultural production in developing countries may fall an average of 16 percent, and if global warming progresses at its current rate, India's agricultural capacity could fall as much as 40 percent. Thus, policymakers should address this phenomenon now before the world's developing countries are adversely and irreversibly affected. The author's previous work in this area, "The Economics of Global Warming", was selected by "Choice" for its 1993 "Outstanding Academic Books" list and was the winner of the Harold and Margaret Sprout prize for the best book on international environmental affairs, awarded by the International Studies Association

The authors of this book investigate of the sharp cyclical shocks of the early 1970s on developing economies by econometric tests of both aggregated and national data relating to the extraordinary international inflation of 1973 and 1974 and the following recession. Willliam R. Cline analyzes the real economic effects of international inflation and Surjit S. Bhalla its nominal effects on inflation in developing countries. Supplementing these generalized examinations are studies of Brazil, by Cline; India, by Bhalla; Guatemala and El Salvador, by Gabriel Siri and Luis Raul Dominguez; and Malaysia, by R. Chander, C.L. Robless, and K.P. Teh. Their discussions focus on the capacity and inclinatiom of the various countries to respond to externally induced economic problems. The case studies are guides to the needs of different kinds of economics-large and small, open and closde. The broad analysis points to the apporiate policy response of developing countries facing international shocks, and to the global responsibilities in industrial countries in determining their own macroeconomic policies

Resolving the European debt crisis( )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

European experts examine the political context in Greece (Loukas Tsoukalis), Ireland (Alan Ahearne), Portugal (Pedro Lourtie), Spain (Guillermo de la Dehesa), Italy (Riccardo Perissich), Germany (Daniela Schwarzer), and France (Zaki Laïdi). Lessons from past debt restructurings are then examined by Jeromin Zettelmeyer (economic) and Lee Buchheit (legal). The two editors separately consider the main current policy issues: debt sustainability by country, private sector involvement and contagion, alternative restructuring approaches, how to assemble a large emergency financing capacity, whether the European Central Bank (ECB) should be a lender of last resort, whether joint-liability "eurobonds" would be feasible and desirable, and the implications of a possible break-up of the euro area. The luncheon address by George Soros and a description (by Steven R. Weisman with Silvia B. Merler) of the policy simulation game played on the second day of the conference complete the volume. Involving market participants and experts representing the roles of euro area governments, the ECB, IMF, G-7, and credit rating agencies, the game led to a proposal for leveraging the capacity of the European Financial Stability Facility through arrangements with the ECB
