Social security and retirement around the world by Jonathan Gruber( Book )

48 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publisher-supplied data) The future of Social Security is troubled, both in the United States and in most other developed countries with aging populations. As improvements in health care and changes in life styles enable retirees to live longer than ever before, the stress on national budgets will increase substantially. In Social Security Programs and Retirement around the World, Jonathan Gruber, David A. Wise, and experts in many countries examine the consequences of reforming retirement benefits in a dozen nations. Drawing on the work of an international group of noted economists, the editors argue that social security programs provide strong incentives for workers to leave the labor force by retiring and taking the benefits to which they are entitled. By penalizing work, social security systems magnify the increased financial burden caused by aging populations, thus contributing to the insolvency of the system. This book is a model of comparative analysis that evaluates the effects of illustrative policies for countries facing the impending rapid growth of social security benefits. Its insights will help inform one of the most pressing debates

Social experimentation by Jerry A Hausman( Book )

11 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1970 the United States government has spent over half a billion dollars on social experiments intended to assess the effect of potential tax policies, health insurance plans, housing subsidies, and other programs. Was it worth it? Was anything learned from these experiments that could not have been learned by other, and cheaper, means? Could the experiments have been better designed or analyzed? These are some of the questions addressed by the contributors to this volume, the result of a conference on social experimentation sponsored in 1981 by the National Bureau of Economic Research. T

Trade policy issues and empirical analysis by Robert E Baldwin( Book )

11 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in U.S. trade policy has been stimulated in recent years by the massive American trade deficit, by the belief that intervention by foreign governments in international markets has given other countries a competitive edge over the United States, and by concern about the increase in protectionism among industrial countries. In turn, major analytical developments in international economics have revolutionized trade theory, broadening its scope both by introducing in a more formal manner such concepts as imperfect competition, increasing returns, product differentiation, and learning effe
Aging in the United States and Japan : economic trends by Yukio Noguchi( Book )

10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Japanese and American economists assess the present economic status of the elderly in the United States and Japan, and consider the impact of an aging population on the economies of the two countries. With essays on labor force participation and retirement, housing equity and the economic status of the elderly, budget implications of an aging population, and financing social security and health care in the 1990s, this volume covers a broad spectrum of issues related to the economics of aging. Among the book's findings are that workers are retiring at an increasingly earlier age in both countri
The economics of school choice by Caroline Minter Hoxby( Book )

The inflation-targeting debate by Ben Bernanke( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Inflation-Targeting Debate, a distinguished group of contributors explores the many underexamined dimensions of inflation targeting - its potential, its successes, and its limitations - from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, and for both developed and emerging economies. The volume opens with a discussion of the optimal formulation of inflation-targeting policy and continues with a debate about the desirability of such a model for the United States. The concluding chapters discuss the special problems of inflation targeting in emerging markets, including the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary."--Jacket
College choices : the economics of where to go, when to go, and how to pay for it by Caroline Minter Hoxby( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In College Choices, Caroline M. Hoxby and a distinguished group of economists show how students and their families really make college decisions: how they respond to financial aid options, whether they need mentoring to get through the admissions process, and why certain students do not persist beyond the first year. Students of all sorts are considered: from poor students who may struggle with applications and whether to continue on to college, to high aptitude students who are offered "free rides" at elite schools. College Choices utilizes the best methods and latest data to analyze the college decision-making process, while explaining how changes in aid and admissions practices inform those decisions as well."--Jacket
Geography and ownership as bases for economic accounting by Robert E Baldwin( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 314 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 international accounts drawn up on the basis of ownership rather than on geography. The papers in this volume suggest that ownership-based national accounts are helpful in understanding trade and financial transactions among globalized enterprises. Individual chapters emphasize this perspective through accounting exercises, studies of individual countries, and studies of foreign di
The risks of financial institutions by Mark S Carey( Book )

The result is a volume that points a way forward to greater financial stability and better risk management of financial institutions."--Jacket
G7 current account imbalances : sustainability and adjustment by Richard H Clarida( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects the eleven original papers that were written for the NBER Project on G7 Current Account Imbalances. Four major themes emerged from the papers written for the project. First, there was broad agreement that the current account imbalances that prevailed among the G7 countries as of June 2005 would ultimately decline, although there was no consensus on when or how this would occur . Second, there was agreement that adjustments in global currency markets would likely be associated with the shifts in global saving and investment patterns that would be required to bring about the ultimate decline in G7 current account imbalances. Third, while the focus of the conference was on current account imbalances in the G7 countries, it was recognized that the aggregate excess of saving over investment that existed among the emerging market economies at the time of the conference, as well as the currency intervention policies of some of these countries, were contributing to the current imbalances in the G7 that prevailed as of June 2005. Fourth, there was a consensus that re-valuation of the evolving foreign asset and liability positions of the G7 countries would play a role during process by which current account imbalances narrowed, although there was range of opinion concerning how large a role such revaluation effects would play
Fiscal policy and management in East Asia by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managing fiscal policy - the revenues and spending of an individual nation - is among the most challenging tasks facing governments. Wealthy countries are constrained by complex regulation and taxation policies, while developing nations often face high inflation and trade taxes. In this volume, esteemed economists Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose, along with other leading experts, examine the problems and challenges facing public finance in East Asian developing countries as well as the United States and Japan. "Fiscal Policy and Management in East Asia" explores the inefficient tax systems of developing countries, the relationship between public and private sector economic behavior, and the pressing issue of future obligations that governments have undertaken to provide pensions and health care for their citizens. Featuring both overviews and analyses of the countries discussed, this book will be of value to economists and policy makers seeking to understand fiscal policy in a global context
