Social security programs and retirement around the world : fiscal implications of reform by Jonathan Gruber( )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 2,079 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
The economics of art museums by Martin S Feldstein( )

4 editions published between 1989 and 1991 in English and held by 2,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Bureau of Economic Research organized a project to explore the economic issues facing the major art museums of the United States. For this purpose NBER defined economics broadly to include not only the financial situation of the museums but also the management and growth of museum collections, the museums' relationship with the public, and the role of the government in supporting art museums.This volume brings together nontechnical essays on these issues by economists associated with the NBER and personal statements by leaders of America's major national art muse
G7 current account imbalances : sustainability and adjustment by Richard H Clarida( )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 2,034 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"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site

Fiscal policy and management in East Asia by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2,022 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 many 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 policymakers seeking to understand fiscal policy in a global context
The economics of school choice by Caroline Minter Hoxby( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has declared school voucher programs constitutional, the question of what the effects of school choice will be becomes especially pressing. Contributors to this volume draw on state-of-the-art economic methods to investigate how school choice affects a wide range of issues. Combining the results of empirical research with analyses of the basic economic forces underlying local educational markets, this book presents evidence concerning the impact of school choice on student achievement, school productivity, teachers, and special education. It also tackles difficult questions such as whether school choice affects where people decide to live and how choice can be integrated into a system of school financing that gives children from different backgrounds equal access to resources
College choices : the economics of where to go, when to go, and how to pay for it by Caroline Minter Hoxby( )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,980 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
The inflation-targeting debate by Ben Bernanke( )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,943 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

Youth employment and joblessness in advanced countries by David G Blanchflower( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic status of young people has declined significantly over the past two decades, despite a variety of programs designed to aid new workers in the transition from the classroom to the job market. This ongoing problem has proved difficult to explain. Drawing on comparative data from Canada, Germany, France, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, these papers go beyond examining only employment and wages and explore the effects of family background, education and training, social expectations, and crime on youth employment. This volume brings together key studies, providing detailed analyses of
The great contraction, 1929-1933 by Milton Friedman( )

12 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,907 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Friedman and Schwartz's A Monetary History of the United States, 1867-1960, published in 1963, stands as one of the most influential economics books of the twentieth century. A landmark achievement, the book marshaled massive historical data and sharp analytics to support the claim that monetary policy--steady control of the money supply--matters profoundly in the management of the nation's economy, especially in navigating serious economic fluctuations. The chapter entitled ""The Great Contraction, 1929-33"" addressed the central economic event of the century, the Great Depression

Topics in empirical international economics : a festschrift in honor of Robert E. Lipsey by Magnus Blomström( )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The next section features articles on international trade, including such significant issues as deterring child labour exploitation in developing countries, exchange rate regimes, and mapping US comparative advantage across various factors. The book concludes with research on multinational corporations and includes a discussion of the long-debated issue of whether growth of production abroad substitutes for or is complementary to production growth at home. The papers in the volume are dedicated to Robert E. Lipsey, who, for more than a half century at the NBER contributed significantly to the broad field of empirical international economics
Measuring the subjective well-being of nations : national accounts of time use and well-being( )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surely everyone wants to know the source of happiness, and indeed, economists and social scientists are increasingly interested in the study and effects of subjective well-being. Putting forward a new method for measuring, comparing, and analyzing the relationship between happiness and the way people spend their time--across countries, regions, and history--this book will help set the agenda of research. It does so by introducing the system of National Time Accounting (NTA), which relies on individuals' own evaluations of their emotional experiences during various uses of time, a distinct improv
