Macroeconomics by Robert J Barro( )

107 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 2,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author presents the market-clearing approach as a general method for analyzing real-world macroeconomic problems. The stress on this approach means that the book is not a "ballanced" treatment of alternative macroeconomic models. There is no book-and probably could be none of substance-that is balanced in this respect. Although he deals in a serious manner with the Keynesian model, he does not use the Keynesian framework for most of the analyses of economic events or policies. The Keynesian theory is an advance topic that involves specific assumptions about the ways that private markets malfunction. The nature of these malfunctions and the special features of the Keynesian model cannot be fully understood and appreciated until the market-clearing analysis has been worked out
Getting it right : markets and choices in a free society by Robert J Barro( )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 2,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1991, Robert Barro has been a lively contributor to the "Wall Street Journal" and other popular financial media. "Getting It Right" brings together, updates, and expands upon these writings that showcases Barro's agility in applying economic understanding to a wide array of social issues. Barro, a "conservative who takes no prisoners," and a self-described libertarian, believes that most governments have gone too far in their spending, taxation, and regulation. The dominant theme in these wide-ranging essays is the importance of institutions that ensure property rights and free markets. The discussion deals especially with the appropriate range of government: which areas represent useful public policy and which are unnecessary interference. The first section of the book considers these questions in the context of the determinants of long-run economic growth. The second section deals with the proper role and form of monetary policy. Writings in the third section cover fiscal and other microeconomic policies. In the final section, Barro looks at more micro issues such as cartels, tax amnesties, school choice, privatization, cigarette-smoking regulation, endangered species regulation, the market for baseball players, and term limits for politicians. -- From publisher's description

Nothing is sacred : economic ideas for the new millennium by Robert J Barro( )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1970s, Robert Barro's academic research has significantly influenced macroeconomic theory. For more than a decade, his writing has also enlivened the pages of publications such as the Wall Street Journal and Business Week. In Nothing Is Sacred, Barro applies his well-honed free market arguments to a remarkably diverse range of issues. These include global problems such as growth and debt, as well as social issues such as the predictive value of SAT scores, drug legalization, the economics of beauty, and the relationship between abortion rights and crime reduction. Throughout, Barro shows that even the most widely held beliefs are not sacred truths. The application of sound economic analysis can shed new -- and often surprising -- light on them."--rear cover
Money employment and inflation by Robert J Barro( Book )

41 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a textbook on macroeconomic theory that attempts to rework the theory of macroeconomic relations through a re-examination of their microeconomic foundations. In the tradition of Keynes's General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (published in 1936), and Patinkin's Money, Interest, and Prices, published in 1956 and revised in 1965, this book represents a third generation of macroeconomic theory. This book presents a comprehensive choice-theoretic analysis of the determination of the level of employment and the rate of inflation
Currency unions by Alberto Alesina( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the optimal number of currencies in the world? Common currencies affect trading costs and, thereby, the amounts of trade, output, and consumption. From the perspective of monetary policy, the adoption of another country's currency trades off the benefits of commitment to price stability against the loss of an independent stabilization policy. The nature of the tradeoff depends on co-movements of disturbances, on distance, trading costs, and on institutional arrangements such as the willingness of anchor countries to accommodate to the interests of clients

Costs and benefits of economic integration in Asia( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To recover from recession, the global economy must rely on the strong performance of developing Asian economies, and it has become clear not only in Asia that regional cooperation and integration is key to regional economic development. Heavily reliant on external demand as an impetus to growth and closely linked to global financial markets, Asian economies are becoming closely integrated through trade, investment, and financial transactions. But how closely integrated are they, and what are the real benefits of integration? In line with its goal to foster economic growth and cooperation in the region, the Asian Development Bank, with Robert J. Barro and Jong-Wha Lee, have collected a formidable group of scholars to tackle the issues related to these questions. Costs & Benefits of Economic Integration in Asia offers quantifiable results from the field's top economists on cooperation and integration in the areas of trade, investment, and finance in Asia
Education matters : global schooling gains from the 19th to the 21st century by Robert J Barro( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers a data set on education in 146 countries since 1870 and projected through 2040. With case studies from the United States, China, and Korea, Barro and Lee evaluate schooling both quantitatively and qualitatively, and assess the role of education in economic and political development. In this study, the authors establish the critical role that education plays--particularly for women and girls--in economic growth, fertility, and democracy. They also address sensitive and controversial topics, such as international disparities in education, and the role of education in modernization and development. --From publisher description
La macroeconomie by Robert J Barro( Book )

Technological diffusion, convergence, and growth by Robert J Barro( Book )

24 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We construct a model that combines elements of endogenous growth with the convergence implications of the neoclassical growth model. In the long run, the world growth rate is driven by discoveries in the technologically leading economies. Followers converge toward the leaders because copying is cheaper than innovation over some range. A tendency for copying costs to increase reduces followers' growth rate and thereby generates a pattern of conditional convergence. We discuss how countries are selected to be technological leaders, and we assess welfare implications. Poorly defined intellectual property rights imply that leaders have insufficient incentive to invent and followers have excessive incentive to copy
