Social experimentation by Jerry A Hausman( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 482 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

The economics of school choice by Caroline Minter Hoxby( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has declared school voucher programs constitutional, the many unanswered questions concerning the potential effects of school choice will become especially pressing. Contributors to this volume draw on state-of-the-art economic methods to answer some of these questions, investigating the ways in which school choice affects a wide range of issues. Combining the results of empirical research with analyses of the basic economic forces underlying local education markets, The Economics of School Choice presents evidence concerning the impact of school choice on stude
The inflation-targeting debate( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 341 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( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 332 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
College choices : the economics of where to go, when to go, and how to pay for it by Caroline Minter Hoxby( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 323 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
Social security programs and retirement around the world : fiscal implications of reform( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 305 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 risks of financial institutions by Mark S Carey( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Until about twenty years ago, the consensus view on the cause of financial-system distress was fairly simple: a run on one bank could easily turn to a panic involving runs on all banks, destroying some and disrupting the financial system. Since then, however, a series of events - such as emerging-market debt crises, bond-market meltdowns, and the Long-Term Capital Management episode - has forced a rethinking of the risks facing financial institutions and the tools available to measure and manage these risks."
Preventing currency crises in emerging markets by Sebastian Edwards( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Topics covered include exchange rate regimes, contagion, the current account of the balance of payments, the role of private sector investors and of speculators, the reaction of the official sector, capital controls, bank supervision and weaknesses, and the roles of cronyism, corruption and large players
Topics in empirical international economics : a festschrift in honor of Robert E. Lipsey by Magnus Blomström( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 282 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
G7 current account imbalances : sustainability and adjustment by Richard H Clarida( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 252 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 )

4 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
