Monetary policy : current policy and conditions by Gail E Makinen( Book )

39 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Monetary policy can be defined broadly as any policy relating to the supply of money. Since the main agency concerned with the supply of money is the nation's central bank, the Federal Reserve, monetary policy can also be defined in terms of the directives, policies, statements, and actions of the Federal Reserve, particularly those from its Board of Governors that have an effect on aggregate demand or national spending. The nation's financial press and markets pay particular attention to the pronouncements of the chairman of the Board of Governors, the nation's central banker. The reason for this attention is that monetary policy can have important effects on aggregate demand and through it on real Gross Domestic Product (GDP), unemployment, real foreign exchange rates, real interest rates, the composition of output, etc."--Page 2

The national debt : who bears its burden? by Marc Labonte( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It rose to a high of 108.6% of gross domestic product (GDP) at the end of World War II; declined to a post-World War II low of 23.8% of GDP in 1974; and, then, rose to another high of 49.5% of GDP in 1993. The United States has financed the extraordinary expenditures associated with war by borrowing rather than by raising taxes or printing money. This pattern was broken by the large budget deficits of the 1980s and 1990s which caused the national debt to rise substantially as a fraction of GDP during peacetime. While economists have long recognized that a national debt imposes an inescapable burden on a nation, they have debated whether the burden is borne by the generation who contracts the debt or is shifted forward to future generations. If an economy is fully employed and the government increases its expenditures, for example, the resultant increase in aggregate demand will cause interest rates to rise and this will reduce or "crowd out" interest-sensitive spending by the private sector. It is a burden that cannot be decreased by borrowing abroad even though foreign borrowing could leave unchanged the size of the private capital stock
America's growing current account deficit : its cause and what it means for the economy by Marc Labonte( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. current account deficit, popularly known as the trade deficit, is on the rise. Over the current economic expansion it has grown from 0.2% of GDP in 1991 to a record high of 4.4% of GDP in 2000, which exceeded the previous high of 2.8% reached in 1986. This growth was particularly rapid over the period 1998-2000. During 1997, the trade deficit was a modest 1.4% of GDP. Four major reasons have been given for the growth of the deficit: the inflow of foreign capital motivated by either profit or safety, the dumping of foreign goods in the American market, recessions or slower growth in the economies of major U.S. trading partners, and barriers imposed against U.S. goods and services by foreign countries. The inflow of foreign capital (and the related trade deficit) has a number of discernable effects on the U.S. economy. Over the longer run, a growing foreign ownership of the American capital stock means that a growing fraction of U.S. income growth will have to be transferred abroad
