Forward-looking decision making : dynamic-programming models applied to health, risk, employment, and financial stability by Robert E Hall( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Individuals and families make key decisions that impact many aspects of financial stability and determine the future of the economy. These decisions involve balancing current sacrifice against future benefits. People have to decide how much to invest in health care, exercise, their diet, and insurance. They must decide how much debt to take on, and how much to save. And they make choices about jobs that determine employment and unemployment levels. Forward-Looking Decision Making is about modeling this individual or family-based decision making using an optimizing dynamic programming model." "Robert Hall first reviews ideas about dynamic programs and introduces new ideas about numerical solutions and the representation of solved models as Markov processes. He surveys recent research on the parameters of preferences - the intertemporal elasticity of substitution, the Frisch elasticity of labor supply, and the Frisch cross-elasticity. He then examines dynamic programming models applied to health spending, long-term care insurance, employment, entrepreneurial risk-taking, and consumer debt." "Linking theory with data and applying them to real-world problems. Forward-Looking Decision Making uses dynamic optimization programming models to shed light on individual behaviors and their economic implications."--Jacket
The flat tax by Robert E Hall( Book )

39 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 10, 1981, the authors of The Flat Tax proposed replacing the federal income tax with a low, simple, flat tax in an article in the Wall Street Journal. That article, titled "A proposal to simplify our tax system," displayed the iconic postcard that became the flat tax's symbol, meaning that an individual or business could file a federal income tax return on a postcard-sized form. -- from dust jacket

Controlling the price level by Robert E Hall( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Governments determine the size of the unit of value just as they determine the length of the length and weight of physical units of measure. What are the different ways that a government can control the size of the unit of value, that is, control the price level? In general, the government designates a resource gold, paper currency, another country's currency and defines its unit of value as a particular amount of that resource. An interesting variant proposed by Irving Fisher in 1913 and implemented more recently in Chile is to alter the resource content of the unit to stabilize the price level. Another idea is to alter the interest rate paid on reserves in a way that stabilizes the price level
Aggregate job destruction and inventory liquidation by Robert E Hall( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a recession, jobs are destroyed and inventories are liquidated. I concentrate on the intertemporal mechanisms that result in economy-wide job destruction and inventory runoffs. Forces that raise the real interest rate -- especially temporarily -- also cause destruction and runoffs. I consider a model where the job destruction decision is made efficiently, will full consideration of the search costs imposed on discharged workers. I also consider a model of inefficient job destruction, where employers discharge workers who are paid fixed wages as long as they are employed. The impulse response functions for these models resemble those found in data for the United States. A shock that causes a jump in the expected real interest rate results in an immediate spike of job destruction and inventory liquidation, followed by a declining pattern of additional destruction and runoff
The stock market and capital accumulation by Robert E Hall( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If firms purchase capital up to the point where there is no further marginal benefit, and the firms' securities are equal in value to the capital, then the market value of securities measures the quantity of capital. I explore the implications of this hypothesis using data from U.S. non-farm, non-financial corporations over the past 50 years. The hypothesis implies that corporations have formed large amounts of intangible capital, especially in the past decade. The resources for expanding capital have come from the output of the existing capital. An endogenous growth model can explain the basic facts about corporate performance, with only a modest increase in the productivity of capital in the 1990s
The productivity of nations by Robert E Hall( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Output per worker varies enormously across countries. Why? Our analysis shows that differences in governmental, cultural, and natural infrastructure are important sources of this variation. According to our results, a high-productivity country (i) has institutions that favor production over diversion, (ii) is open to international trade, (iii) has at least some private ownership, (iv) speaks an international language, and (v) is located in a temperate latitude far from the equator. A favorable infrastructure helps a country both by stimulating the accumulation of human and physical capital and by raising its total factor productivity
