The current account deficit of the United States is more than six percent of its gross domestic product?an all-time high. And the rest of the world, including other G7 countries such as Japan and Germany, must collectively run current account surpluses to finance this deficit. How long can such unevenness between imports and exports be sustained, and what form might their eventual reconciliation take? Putting forth scenarios ranging from a gradual correction to a crash landing for the dollar, G7 Current Account Imbalances brings together economists from around the globe to consider the origins
Fiscal policy and management in East Asia by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,975 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( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,935 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( )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,916 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

Preventing currency crises in emerging markets by Sebastian Edwards( )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economists and policymakers are still trying to understand the lessons recent financial crises in Asia and other emerging market countries hold for the future of the global financial system. In this timely and important volume, distinguished academics, officials in multilateral organizations, and public and private sector economists explore the causes of and effective policy responses to international currency crises. Topics covered include exchange rate regimes, contagion (transmission of currency crises across countries), the current account of the balance of payments, the role of private sector investors and of speculators, the reaction of the official sector (including the multilaterals), capital controls, bank supervision and weaknesses, and the roles of cronyism, corruption, and large players (including hedge funds). Ably balancing detailed case studies, cross-country comparisons, and theoretical concerns, this book will make a major contribution to ongoing efforts to understand and prevent international currency crises
Growth and productivity in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considering the examples of Australia and the Pacific Rim, Growth and Productivity in East Asia offers a contemporary explanation for national productivity that measures contributions not only from capital and labor, but also from economic activities and relevant changes in policy, education, and technology. Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose have organized a group of collaborators from several Asian countries, the United States, and other parts of the globe who ably balance both macroeconomic and microeconomic study with theoretical and empirical approaches. Growth and Productivity in East Asia gives special attention to the causes for the unusual success of Australia, one of the few nations to maintain unprecedented economic growth despite the 1997 Asian financial crisis and the 2001 global downturn. A new database comprising eighty-four Japanese sectors reveals new findings for the last thirty years of sectoral productivity and growth in Japan. Studies focusing on Indonesia, Taiwan, and Korea also consider productivity and its relationship to research and development, foreign ownership, and policy reform in such industries as manufacturing, automobile production, and information technology
The inflation-targeting debate by Ben S Bernanke( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,833 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
The analysis of firms and employees : quantitative and qualitative approaches by Stefan Bender( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The long-term impact of globalization, outsourcing, and technological change on workers is increasingly being studied by economists. At the nexus of labor economics, industry studies, and industrial organization, The Analysis of Firms and Employees presents new findings about these influences by examining the interaction between the internal workings of businesses and outside influences from the market using data from countries around the globe. The result is enhanced insight into the dynamic interrelationship between firms and workers." "A distinguished team of researchers examines the relationships between human resource practices and productivity, changing ownership and production methods, and expanding trade patterns and firm competitiveness. With analyses of large-scale, nationwide datasets as well as focused, intensive observation of a few firms, The Analysis of Firms and Employees will challenge economists, policymakers, and scholars alike to rethink their assumptions about the workplace."--Jacket
The great contraction, 1929-1933 by Milton Friedman( )

15 editions published between 1965 and 2009 in English and held by 1,803 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. The chapter entitled "The Great Contraction, 1929-33", addressed the central economic event of the century, the Great Depression. Published as a stand-alone paperback in 1965, the publication argues that the Federal Reserve could have stemmed the severity of the Depression, but failed to exercise its role of managing the monetary system and ameliorating banking panics. It served as a clarion call to the monetarist school of thought by emphasizing the importance of the money supply in the functioning of the economy - a concept that has come to inform the actions of central banks worldwide. This edition of the original text includes a new preface by Anna Jacobson Schwartz, as well as a new introduction by the economist Peter Bernstein
The changing body : health, nutrition, and human development in the western world since 1700 by Roderick Floud( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,801 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Humans have become much taller and heavier, and experience healthier and longer lives than ever before in human history. However it is only recently that historians, economists, human biologists and demographers have linked the changing size, shape and capability of the human body to economic and demographic change. This fascinating and groundbreaking book presents an accessible introduction to the field of anthropometric history, surveying the causes and consequences of changes in health and mortality, diet and the disease environment in Europe and the United States since 1700. It examines how we define and measure health and nutrition as well as key issues such as whether increased longevity contributes to greater productivity or, instead, imposes burdens on society through the higher costs of healthcare and pensions. The result is a major contribution to economic and social history with important implications for today's developing world and the health trends of the future
Means-tested transfer programs in the United States( )

15 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides an overview of how such programs actually work, offering a wealth of information on the nation's nine largest "means-tested" programs - that is, those in which some test of income forms the basis for participation. For each program, contributors describe origins and goals, summarize policy histories and current rules, and discuss the recipients' characteristics as well as the different types of benefits they receive. Each chapter then provides an overview of scholarly research on each program, bringing together the results of the field's most rigorous statistical examinations." "The result is a portrayal of the evolution and current state of means-tested programs, one that charts a number of shifts in emphasis - the decline of cash assistance, for instance, and increasing emphasis on work. This portrait of the nation's safety net will be an invaluable reference for anyone interested in American social policy."--BOOK JACKET
