The Economics of aging by David A Wise ( )
11 editions published between 1988 and 2003 in English and held by 1,501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The next two decades will mark a new phase in the demographic transition of the United States as baby boomers become eligible for Social Security and Medicare. Drawing on evidence from the United States and other nations, Explorations in the Economics of Aging yields important new findings on how economic decisions by households and policy choices by governments will influence the effects of this demographic shift. It explores topics such as the implications of differential mortality rates by income on Social Security, the link between cognition and economic outcomes, and scale variations in s

Social experimentation by Jerry A Hausman ( )
9 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 1,344 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. The first section of the book looks at four types of experiments and what each accomplished. Frank P. Stafford examines the negative income tax experiments, Dennis J. Aigner considers the experiments with electricity pricing based on time of use, Harvey S. Rosen evaluates housing allowance experiments, and Jeffrey E. Harris reports on health experiments. In the second section, addressing experimental design and analysis, Jerry A. Hausman and David A. Wise highlight the absence of random selection of participants in social experiments, Frederick Mosteller and Milton C. Weinstein look specifically at the design of medical experiments, and Ernst W. Stromsdorfer examines the effects of experiments on policy. Each chapter is followed by the commentary of one or more distinguished economists

Trade policy issues and empirical analysis by Robert E Baldwin ( )
8 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 1,273 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 ( )
7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,267 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 effects of U.S. trade protection and promotion policies by Robert C Feenstra ( )
4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Gone are the days when the United States was evaluated by its ability to negotiate multilateral policies of mutual benefit to a broad group of countries. Economists disagree on whether recent U.S. trade policies are harmful or helpful, but they all agree that there is a new trend toward focusing on results-oriented policies in specific markets and with particular trading partners. These twelve essays by leading international economists examine crucial issues in U.S. trade policy today. Taken together, these essays show that some policies can act to both protect imports and promote exports, and that the threat of protectionist policies can often have effects that are as pronounced as their actual implementation. This timely volume will be of crucial interest to international trade economists, policy specialists, and political scientists
Empirical studies of commercial policy by Robert E Baldwin ( )
7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The need for careful research on trade policy is particularly acute, and this volume empirically addresses these and many other important issues. The contributors offer studies which integrate the institutional details of current trade policy with creative economic analyses. Marked by a shift from a traditional reliance on simulation models, these papers take their inspiration from recent changes in the assumptions traditionally underlying research in international trade theory. No longer are government policies viewed as being somehow "given" to the researcher; in part 1, "Anal

Means-tested transfer programs in the United States by Robert A Moffitt ( )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few United States government programs are as controversial as those designed to aid the poor. From tax credits to medical assistance, aid to needy families is surrounded by debateon what benefits should be offered, what forms they should take, and how they should be administered. The past few decades, in fact, have seen this debate lead to broad transformations of aid programs themselves, with Aid to Families with Dependent Children replaced by Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, the Earned Income Tax Credit growing from a minor program to one of the most important for low-income families

Regionalism versus multilateral trade arrangements by Takatoshi Itō ( )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,088 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is no doubt that after World War II the open multilateral trading system was a key ingredient in the rapid economic development of the entire world. Especially in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, exports increased dramatically both in absolute terms and as a percentage of GNP. In the 1980s, however, preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) began to emerge as significant factors affecting world trade. This volume contains thirteen papers that analyze the tensions between multilateral trading systems and preferential trade arrangements and the impact of these tensions on East Asia
Topics in the economics of aging by David A Wise ( )
7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The original essays and commentary in this volumethe third in a series reporting the results of the NBER Economics of Aging Programaddress issues that are of particular importance to the well-being of individuals as they age and to a society at large that is composed increasingly of older persons. The contributors examine social security reform, including an analysis of the Japanese system; present the startling finding that the vast majority of people choose the wrong accumulation strategies for their pension plans; explore the continuing consequences of the decline in support of parents by
International economic cooperation by Martin S Feldstein ( Book )

"A readable, balanced, and provocative view of the prospects for fruitful international economic cooperation. The papers are realistic: each discusses the difficulties involved in reaching cooperative solutions or procedures as well as the benefits of doing so. The discussion among the conference participants is lively, interesting, and insightful."--William H. Branson, Princeton University

Rational expectations and economic policy by Stanley Fischer ( Book )
9 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
&Quot;Several areas in economics today have unprecedented significance and vitality. Most people would agree that stabilization policy ranks with the highest of these. Continuing inflation and periodic serious acceleration of inflation combined with high and secularly rising unemployment combine to give the area high priority. This book brings us up to date on an extremely lively discussion involving the role of expectations, and more particularly rational expectations, in the conduct of stabilization policy. . . . Anyone interested in the role of government in economics should read this impor
Globalization in historical perspective by Michael D Bordo ( )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As awareness of the process of globalization grows and the study of its effects becomes increasingly important to governments and businesses (as well as to a sizable opposition), the need for historical understanding also increases. Despite the importance of the topic, few attempts have been made to present a long-term economic analysis of the phenomenon, one that frames the issue by examining its place in the long history of international integration. This volume collects eleven papers doing exactly that and more. The first group of essays explores how the process of globalization can be meas
