Urban economic and planning models : assessing the potential for cities in developing countries by Rakesh Mohan( Book )

16 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Urban models can be divided into explanatory or policy-oriented classifications. Explanatory models are usually systematic attempts at explaining urban form; operational models, on the other hand, rely on either social physics or behavior principles. Explanatory models focus on the tradeoffs between the cost of the site itself and the costs of travel, the analytic problems caused by the unique quality of each location, the effects of transport congestion on city form, and the consequences of welfare emphasis on equity. The social physics form of operational models tries to replicate statistical regularities observed in the activities of people within a city. Economic models based on behavioral principles are the easiest to understand because their structure is drawn from behavioral relations derived from behavioral analysis. The characteristics of operational and explanatory models overlap. Two operational and two explanatory models are presented as exemplary techniques for modeling urban areas in developing countries. Useful explanatory models are likely to require large sets of disaggregated data in order to provide the building blocks for the operational models
Understanding the developing metropolis : lessons from the city study of Bogotá and Cali, Colombia by Rakesh Mohan( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author analyzes in great depth the structure of two Colombians cities, Bogotá and Cali, by modeling different markets and the behavior of individuals, household, firms, and government within these markets. He underlines the importance of understanding the behavior of the various actors in a city, and his use of simple economic reasoning contribute much to comprehension not only of urban behavior but also of the structure of the city itself.

Labor force participation in a developing metropolis : does sex matter? by Rakesh Mohan( Book )

10 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After sustained economic growth in Colombia over two decades, the labor market in Bogota exhibited considerable tightening up in the late 1970s. Unemployment rates were seen to have declined and the rate of participation of women to have increased perceptibly over the decade. This study uses data from a 1978 household survey to examine the determinants of labor force participation. The estimates show that the main component of the labor force that can be expected to expand rapidly with rising real wages is that of married women. As access to secondary and higher education improves further, more young men and women will stay longer in school before entering the labor force. Hence, fewer young men and women will enter the labor force at a young age. The same forces that induce greater participation of married women will serve to reduce the entry of young women into the labor force at a young age. These results have implications for urban labor markets in developing countries in general. It may be the case that the remarkable increase in female labor participation that has taken place in developed countries may occur in developing countries earlier than might be expected at rather lower absolute income levels
Growth with financial stability : central banking in an emerging market by Rakesh Mohan( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is widely believed that the Indian economy witnessed near stagnation in real GDP growth from Independence till the late 1970s. Challenging this notion, the collection of papers and speeches in this volume provides fresh perspectives on India's growth experience from Independence to the recent global financial crisis. This volume documents how the conduct of Indian monetary and financial policy has been unorthodox by the standards of extant international conventional wisdom, but appropriate to the macroeconomic and structural conditions prevailing in India. With a focus on growth drivers and financial stability, the volume deals with a wide-range of issues: growth of manufacturing and service sectors, role of policies (monetary, fiscal, financial market and sector, external sector), urban infrastructure investment, public service delivery, role of central banks, and the interaction between international finance and monetary policy. Drawing upon the post-reform experience and the global crisis, the volume takes stock of current challenges and suggests strategies to sustain long-term double-digit growth rates

Pressing the Indian Growth Accelerator: Policy Imperatives by Rakesh Mohan( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

India's real GDP growth slipped substantially after the North Atlantic financial crisis. Return to a sustained high growth trajectory is feasible but it will need much more focused attention to the revival of manufacturing and to the acceleration of investment in transport and infrastructure. The immediate priority is to achieve the kind of fiscal quality and low inflation levels exhibited during 2003-08, with focused attention to increasing efficiency and compliance in tax revenue collection. Higher tax revenues can facilitate increases in public investment, which then crowd in private investment. The task ahead will be more difficult in view of the protracted slowdown in global growth and trade
Monetary Policy Coordination and the Role of Central Banks by Rakesh Mohan( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The unconventional monetary policies (UMPs) pursued by the advanced economies (AEs) have posed macroeconomic challenges for the emerging market economies (EMEs) through volatile capital flows and exchange rates. AE central banks need to acknowledge and appreciate the spillovers resulting from such UMPs. Central banks of the AEs, who have set up standing mutual swap facilities, should explore similar arrangements with other significant EMEs with appropriate risk mitigation measures. These initiatives could do much to actually curb volatility in global financial markets and hence in capital flows to EMEs, thus obviating the need for defensive policy actions on the part of EMEs"--Abstract
India's recent macroeconomic performance : an assessment and way forward by Muneesh Kapur( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The macroeconomic policy response in India after the North Atlantic financial crisis (NAFC) was rapid. The overshooting of the stimulus and its gradual withdrawal sowed seeds for inflationary and BoP pressures and growth slowdown, then exacerbated by domestic policy bottlenecks and volatility in international financial markets during mid-2013. Appropriate domestic oil prices and fiscal consolidation will contribute to the recovery of private sector investment. Fiscal consolidation would also facilitate a reduction in inflation, which would moderate gold imports and favorably impact real exchange rate and current account deficit
