The Measurement of saving, investment, and wealth by Robert E Lipsey( Book )

16 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is probably no concept other than saving for which U.S. official agencies issue annual estimates that differ by more than a third, as they have done for net household saving, or for which reputable scholars claim that the correct measure is close to ten times the officially published one. Yet despite agreement among economists and policymakers on the importance of this measure, huge inconsistencies persist. Contributors to this volume investigate ways to improve aggregate and sectoral saving and investment estimates and analyze microdata from recent household wealth surveys. They provide analyses of National Income and Product Account (NIPA) and Flow-of-Funds measures and of saving and survey-based wealth estimates. Conceptual and methodological questions are discussed regarding long-term trends in the U.S. wealth inequality, age-wealth profiles, pensions and wealth distribution, and biases in inferences about life-cycle changes in saving and wealth. Some new assessments are offered for investment in human and nonhuman capital, the government contribution to national wealth, NIPA personal and corporate saving, and banking imputation
Toward an explanation of national price levels by Irving B Kravis( Book )

15 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this paper is to call attention to the need for a theory of comparative national price levels and to explore some of the elements that seem to belong to such a theory. Most theoretical discussions have maintained that national price levels tend towards equality and focus on presumably temporary divergences from equality. Yet strong evidence has been accumulating that there are large and long-standing differences inprice levels, the highest of which are more than twice those of countries with the lowest prices. Long-run price level differences are most clearly related to levels of real per capita output, with richer countries having higher price levels.These differences have been explained as resulting from greater advantages in productivity for the wealthier countries in goods production, mostly tradable, than in services production, mostly nontradable. The differences in relative productivity may be in total factor productivity or only in labor productivity, reflecting the greater capital intensity of goods production and possibly a higher elasticity of substitution between capital and labor in goods production.We find in the empirical analysis that a large part of the differences in price levels can be explained by structural factors such as real GDP per capita, the degree of openness of the economy, and the share of nontradable goods in output. The only non-structural factor emerging from a preliminary analysis of several of these was the rate of growth of the quantity of money

International and interarea comparisons of income, output, and prices by Alan W Heston( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economists wish to compare prices, real income, and output across countries and regions for many purposes. In the past, such comparisons were made in nominal terms, or by using exchange rates across countries, ignoring differences in price levels and thus distorting the results. Great progress has been made in interspatial comparisons in the past thirty years, but descriptions and discussions of the new measures have been scattered in unpublished or inaccessible papers. International and Interarea Comparisons of Income, Output, and Prices includes discussions of developments in the United Nations International Comparison Program, the largest effort in this field, and in the ICOP program on the production side, including efforts in both to extend the comparisons to the formerly planned economies. Other papers in this volume explore new programs on interspatial comparisons within the United States. There are also theoretical papers on how interspatial comparisons should be made and several examples of uses of such comparisons
Geography and ownership as bases for economic accounting by Robert E Baldwin( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geography and Ownership as Bases for Economic Accounting provides a forum for leading specialists in trade and international economics to explore whether changes in the world economy have increased the usefulness of economic accounts drawn up on the basis of ownership rather than of geography. The papers in this volume suggest that ownership-based accounts are helpful in understanding trade and financial transactions among globalized enterprises
Comparative prices of nonferrous metals in international trade, 1953-64 by Irving B Kravis( Book )

Topics in empirical international economics : a festschrift in honor of Robert E. Lipsey by Magnus Blomström( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The next section features articles on international trade, including such significant issues as deterring child labour exploitation in developing countries, exchange rate regimes, and mapping US comparative advantage across various factors. The book concludes with research on multinational corporations and includes a discussion of the long-debated issue of whether growth of production abroad substitutes for or is complementary to production growth at home. The papers in the volume are dedicated to Robert E. Lipsey, who, for more than a half century at the NBER contributed significantly to the broad field of empirical international economics
Measures of the transnationalization of economic activity by United Nations Conference on Trade and Development( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides an overview of the conceptual issues relating to the measurement of transnationalization and discusses the advantages and drawbacks of different measures. Using a variety of measures, the study analyzes trends in transnationalization for a number of economies: Canada, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan province of China, The United Kingdom and the United States. This volume documents that, while the overall degree of transnationalization of the global economy is increasing, there are important differences in the process and phases of transnationalization among the various economies examined. The most notable difference is the decline in the contribution of developed countries to the transnationalization of the global economy, while the contribution of developing economies is increasing as measured by investment.--Publisher's description
Multinational firms and impacts on employment, trade, and technology : new perspectives for a new century by Robert E Lipsey( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays shows the high degree of complementarity between foreign direct investment and home export, challenging the long held fear that firms investing abroad leads to a loss of employment and decline in the home country
Foreign direct investment in the real and financial sector of industrial countries by Heinz Herrmann( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international integration of national economies is a dominant feature of the present time. This book brings together papers on the determinants and consequences of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the real and financial sectors of industrial countries. It sheds new light on the determinants of FDI, in particular the role of governmental incentives. Another main topic of this volume is the role of FDI in the east European accession countries. It provides insights into the question of whether EU enlargement will have consequences for capital flows into those countries. Since the start of European monetary union the discussion on cross-border mergers in the European banking industry has intensified. The final part of the book contains contributions to this debate
Is fixed investment the key to economic growth? by Magnus Blomström( Book )

24 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines shares of fixed capital formation in GOP and rates of economic growth for more than 100 countries over successive 5-year periods between 1965 and 1985 to determine the direction of causality between them. Simple regressions and multiple regressions including several standard determinants of growth, as well as a simple causality test, provide more evidence that increases in growth precede rises in rates of capital formation than that increases in capital formation precede increases in growth. High rates of fixed capital formation accompany rapid growth in per capita income, but we find no evidence that fixed investment is the only or main source of ignition for economic growth
