Inflation stabilization with incomes policy support : a review of the experience in Argentina, Brazil, and Israel by Rudiger Dornbusch( Book )

15 editions published between 1978 and 1987 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1985-86 Argentina, Brazil and Israel initiated programs of stabilization after episodes of high and sharply accelerating inflation. Among the key features of each stabilization program were the use of wage- price controls, a fixed exchange rate and fiscal correction as well as a significant expansion in the nominal quantity of money. The combination of fiscal correction and incomes policy has come to be known as "heterodox" stabilization policy, thus opposing it to the conventional IHF programs which emphasize tight monetary and fiscal policies as the exclusive instrument of stabilization. The stabilization programs in Argentina and Israel have now been in force for over a year and the more recent one in Brazil for half a year. There is accordingly enough evidence to make a first judgment on the success and the limitations of these new schemes. At the same time it is worthwhile spelling out some of the special features of stabilization and the resulting intellectual case for heterodox programs. The paper focuses on the conceptual issues related to the use of incomes policy in the context of stabilization when inertia is a central feature, The analysis includes the relation between deficits and inflation, inertial inflation and the basics of monetary reform. We also review the actual stabilization experience in Argentina, Brazil and Israel. The paper concludes with a discussion of the political dimension of stabilization, showing the extraordinary political popularity of the new programs
Credibility, debt and unemployment : Ireland's failed stabilization by Rudiger Dornbusch( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do existing theories of stabilization help understand the credibility issues involved in such programs? The experience with stabilization in a hyperinflation setting in Israel and Latin America makes it worthwhile to ask how much existing theories help understand the success and failure of these experiments. Theories typically focus on interaction between policy makers and the public, with imperfect information about the true nature of the government and resulting games. But this model often does not help greatly in explaining stabilization. These notes raise some of the questions left unanswered by the traditional modeling of credibility. The first sections deals with stabilization as a one shot problem. This approach is used to ask what "credibility might mean in a world where it is inconceivable that a program will succeed with probability 1. A model is spelled out where the equilibrium program has an ex ante probability of success. The model draws attention to the factors which raise or lower the probability of success of a stabilization program. The next section deals with the problem of waiting which is familiar from the option literature and recent international applications. It is shown here that in the immediate aftermath of stabilization there is a great difficulty in persuading the public to repatriate assets and engage in irreversible investment except at a large premium. But generating that premium is politically difficult
Moderate inflation by Rudiger Dornbusch( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inflation persists at moderate rates of 15-30 percent in all the countries that successfully reduced triple digit inflations in the 1980s. Several other countries, for example Colombia, have experienced moderate inflation for prolonged periods. In this paper we first set out theories of persistent inflation, which can be classified into those emphasizing seigniorage as a source of government finance and those that emphasize the costs of ending inflation. We then examine the sources and persistence of moderate inflation episodes. Most were triggered by commodity price shocks; they were brief; and very few ended in higher inflation. We then present case studies of eight countries, including three that now suffer from moderate inflation, and four that successfully moved down to single digit inflation rates. We examine the roles of seigniorage, indexation and disindexation, the exchange rate commitment, and monetary and fiscal policy. The evidence suggests that seigniorage plays at most a modest role in the persistence of moderate inflations, and that such inflations can be reduced only at a substantial short-term cost to growth

The Macroeconomics of populism in Latin America by Rudiger Dornbusch( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Macroeconomic populism is an approach to economics that emphasizes growth and income distribution and deemphasizes the risks of inflation and deficit finance, external constraints and the reaction of economic agents to aggressive non-market policies. The purpose of our paper is to show that policy experiences in different countries and periods share common features, from the initial conditions, the motivation for policies, the argument that the country's conditions are different, to the ultimate collapse. Our purpose in setting out these experiences, those of Chile under Allende and of Peru under Garcia, is not a righteous assertion of conservative economics, but rather a warning that populist policies do ultimately fail; and when they fail it is always at a frightening cost to the very groups who were supposed to be favored. Our central thesis is that the macroeconomics of various experiences is very much the same, even if the politics differed greatly
