Migration and the welfare state : political-economy policy formation by Assaf Razin( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nobel laureate economist Milton Friedman once noted that free immigration cannot coexist with a welfare state. A welfare state with open borders might turn into a haven for poor immigrants, which would place such a fiscal burden on the state that native-born voters would support less-generous benefits or restricted immigration, or both. And yet a welfare state with an aging population might welcome young skilled immigrants. The preferences of the native-born population toward migration depend on the skill and age composition of the immigrants, and migration policies in a political-economy framework may be tailored accordingly. This book examines how social benefits-immigrations political economy conflicts are resolved, with an empirical application to data from Europe and the developed countries, integrating elements from population, international, public, and political economics into a unified static and dynamic framework. Using a static analytical framework to examine intra-generational distribution, the authors first focus on the skill composition of migrants in both free and restricted immigration policy regimes, drawing on empirical research from EU-15 and non-EU-15 states. The authors then offer theoretical analyses of similar issues in dynamic overlapping generations settings, studying not only intragenerational but also intergenerational aspects, including old-young dependency ratios and skilled-unskilled conflicts. Finally, they examine overall gains from or costs of migration in both host and source countries and the race to the bottom argument of tax competition between states in the presence of free migration
The decline of the welfare state : demography and globalization by Assaf Razin( )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Decline of the Welfare State, Assaf Razin and Efraim Sadka use a political economy framework to analyze the effects of aging populations, migration, and globalization on the deteriorating system of financing welfare state benefits as we know them. Their timely analysis, supported by a unified theoretical framework and empirical findings, demonstrates how the combined forces of demographic change and globalization will make it impossible for the welfare state to maintain itself on its present scale."--Jacket

Foreign direct investment : analysis of aggregate flows by Assaf Razin( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1990s saw global flows of foreign direct investment increase some sevenfold, spurring economists to explore FDI from a micro- or trade-based perspective. Foreign Direct Investment is one of the first books to analyze the macroeconomics of FDI, treating FDI as a unique form of international capital flow between specific parts of countries." "By examining the determinants of the aggregate flows of FDI at the bilateral, source-host-country level. Assaf Razin and Efraim Sadka present in the first systematic global analysis of the singular features of FDI flows. Drawing on a wealth of fresh data, they provide new theoretical models and empirical techniques that illuminate the vital country-pair characteristics that drive these flows. Uniquely, Foreign Direct Investment examines FDI between developed and developing countries, and not just between developed countries. Among many other insights, the book shows that tax competition vis-a-vis FDI need not lead to a "race to the bottom". Foreign Direct Investment is an essential resource for graduate students, academics, and policy professionals."--Jacket

Public-private partnerships : a public economics perspective by Efraim Sadka( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public-private partnerships (PPPs) involve the supply by the private sector of infrastructure and services deriving from infrastructure assets which have traditionally been supplied by the public sector. PPPs are spreading all over the world. It may be quite plausible that such arrangements were initially an attempt to evade expenditure controls and hide public budget deficits. But if they are properly designed and transparently reported, PPPs can enhance the efficiency of the provision of services that were formerly supplied solely by the public sector. This paper provides a public economics perspective on PPPs
The economics of globalization : policy perspectives from public economics by Assaf Razin( Book )

19 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing economic openness expressed in the globalization of independent economic systems has created problems as well as opportunities that cross formal borders in new and unexpected ways. Professors Assaf Razin and Efraim Sadka have compiled and edited a series of essays based on lectures delivered at the 1996 Congress of the International Institute of Public Finance that explore the ramifications of globalization in selected areas of public finance
Household and economy : welfare economics of endogenous fertility by Marc Nerlove( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Household and Economy: Welfare Economics of Endogenous Fertility deals with welfare economics and the socially optimal population size, as well as the social consequences of individual choice with respect to family size within each generation. The general equilibrium implications of endogenous fertility for a number of issues of population policy are discussed. In addition to their own consumption, the number of children and the utility of each child is assumed to enter the utility function of the parents. Comprised of 10 chapters, this volume begins with a review of social welfare crit

Topics in public economics : theoretical and applied analysis( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evolving modern world is characterized by two opposing trends: integration and segregation. On the one hand, we witness strong forces for segregation on the basis of nationality, ethnicity, religion, and culture in the former Soviet Union, the former Czechoslovakia, the former Yugoslavia, as well as in Northern Ireland, Spain, and Canada. These forces are quite strong and, in some cases, violent. On the other hand, the European Union and NAFTA represent the tendency for integration motivated primarily by economic considerations (such as gains from trade and scale economies). In fact, these opposing trends can be explained by the concepts developed in modern club theory, local public finance, and international trade

Migration and pension by Assaf Razin( Book )

21 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Migration has important implications for the financial soundness of the pension system, which is an important pillar of the welfare state. While it is common sense to expect that young migrants, even if low-skilled, can help society pay the benefits to the currently elderly, it may nevertheless be reasonable to argue that these migrants would adversely affect current young since, after all, the migrants are net beneficiaries of the welfare state. In contrast to the adverse effects of low skilled migration in a static model in a Samuelsonian overlapping generations model that migration is a Pareto-improving measure. All the existing income (low and high) and age (young and old) groups living at the time of the migrant's arrival would be better off

Channeling domestic savings into productive investment under asymmetric information : the essential role of foreign direct investment by Assaf Razin( Book )

26 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foreign direct investment (FDI) is observed to be a predominant form of capital flows to low and middle income countries with insufficiently developed capital markets. This paper analyzes the problem of channeling domestic savings into productive investment in the presence of asymmetric information between the managing owners of firms and other portfolio stakeholders. We emphasize the crucial role played by FDI in sustaining equity-financed capital investment for economies plagued by such information problems. Similar problems also exist for foreign portfolio debt flows. The paper identifies how, in the presence of information asymmetry, different capital market structures may lead to foreign over- or under-investment and to domestic under- or over-saving, and thus to inefficient equilibria. We show how corrective tax-subsidy policies consisting of taxes on corporate income and the capital incomes of both residents and nonresidents can restore efficiency
The aging population and the size of the welfare state by Assaf Razin( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: Data for the United States and countries in Western Europe indicate a negative correlation between the dependency ratio and labor tax rates and the generosity of social transfers, after controlling for other factors that influence the size of the welfare state. This is despite the increased political clout of the dependent population implied by the aging of the population. This paper develops an overlapping generations model of intra-and inter-generational transfers (including old-age social security) and human capital formation which addresses this seeming puzzle. We show that with democratic voting, an increase in the dependency ratio can lead to lower taxes or less generous social transfers
