Getting off track : how government actions and interventions caused, prolonged, and worsened the financial crisis by John B Taylor( Book )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history, financial crises have always been caused by excesses--frequently monetary excesses--which lead to a boom and an inevitable bust. In our current crisis it was a housing boom and bust that in turn led to financial turmoil in the United States and other countries. How did everything deteriorate so suddenly and dramatically? In Getting Off Track: How Government Actions and Interventions Caused, Prolonged, and Worsened the Financial Crisis, Hoover fellow and Stanford economist John B. Taylor offers empirical research to explain what caused the current financial crisis, what prolonged it, and what worsened it dramatically more than a year after it began. The author tells how unusually easy monetary policy helped set the crisis in motion, as interest rates at the Federal Reserve and several other central banks deviated from historical regularities. He explains monetary interaction with the subprime mortgage problem, showing how the use of these mortgages, especially the adjustable-rate variety, led to excessive risk taking. In the United States this was encouraged by government programs designed to promote home ownership, a worthwhile goal but overdone in retrospect. Looking ahead, the author suggests a set of principles to follow to prevent misguided actions and interventions in the future. -- Book Description

Monetary policy rules by John B Taylor( Book )

30 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume results from a unique cooperative research effort between nearly thirty monetary experts and policymakers from central banks and universities who evaluated different policy rules using a variety of techniques. Their striking findings on the potential response of interest rates to an array of variables, including alterations in the rates of inflation, unemployment, and exchange, illustrate that simple policy rules are more robust and more efficient than complex rules with multiple variables." "A state-of-the-art appraisal of the fundamental issues facing the Federal Reserve Board and other central banks, Monetary Policy Rules is essential reading for economic analysts and policymakers alike."--Jacket

This book examines the dangers of continuing government bailouts and offers alternative strategies designed to produce growth based on the vigor of the private sector with inflation under control. The expert authors show that it is indeed possible to explain the causes of the crisis in understandable terms and clarify why resolving the bailout problem is essential to preventing future crises
Bankruptcy not bailout : a special chapter 14 by Kenneth E Scott( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The events of the last several years on Wall Street make a compelling case for comprehensive, fundamental reform in the oversight of financial firms. In Bankruptcy Not Bailout, a group of expert contributors show why, if a new addition to the bankruptcy laws--Chapter 14--were implemented along with other genuine reforms, the changes could strengthen the US financial system and provide the impetus the US economy needs to thrive once again. The authors reveal the weaknesses in Dodd-Frank Title II, showing how the current law creates an elaborate, and potentially cumbersome, bureaucratic procedure for triggering seizure of a financial company--and tell why Chapter 14 could greatly improve that process, creating greater financial stability and reducing the likelihood of bailouts. They lay the groundwork for a return to a clearer, more rules-based oversight regime that relies more on real capital and true market forces and urge adoption of a Chapter 14 even were Dodd-Frank left untouched
Making failure feasible : how bankruptcy reform can end "too big to fail"( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A distinguished group of contributors expands on the Resolution Group's proposal for a Chapter 14 addition to the Bankruptcy Code that includes provisions that would lead to quicker resolution, clear outcomes that would not be dependent on government discretion and that would mesh with emerging ideas about cross-border resolution. The contributors provide the context for reform, outline the fundamental principles of reform, and show how reform would work in practice."--Publisher's website
Across the great divide : new perspectives on the financial crisis by Martin Neil Baily( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The financial crisis of 2008 devastated the American economy and caused U.S. policymakers to rethink their approaches to major financial crises. More than five years have passed since the collapse of Lehman Brothers, but questions still persist about the best ways to avoid and respond to future financial crises. In Across the Great Divide , a copublication with Brookings Institution, contributing economic and legal scholars from academia, industry, and government analyze the financial crisis of 2008, from its causes and effects on the U.S. economy to the way ahead. The expert contributors consider postcrisis regulatory policy reforms and emerging financial and economic trends, including the roles played by highly accommodative monetary policy, securitization run amok, government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), large asset bubbles, excessive leverage, and the Federal funds rate, among other potential causes. They discuss the role played by the Federal Reserve and examine the concept of "too big to fail." And they review and assess resolution frameworks, considering experiences with Lehman Bros. and other firms in the crisis, Title II of the Dodd-Frank Act, and the Chapter 14 bankruptcy code proposal

Staggered price and wage setting in macroeconomics by John B Taylor( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This paper reviews the role of temporary price and wage rigidities in explaining the dynamic relationship between money, real output, and inflation. It summarizes microeconomic data on price and wage setting behavior, and argues that staggered price and wage setting models provide the most satisfactory match with the data. Research in this area has been very active in the 1990's with a remarkable number of studies using, estimating, or testing models of staggered price and wage setting. A new generation of econometric models incorporating staggered price and wage setting with rational expectations has been built. Researchers have begun to incorporate staggered wage and price setting into real business cycle models. Close links have been discovered between the parameters of people's utility functions and the parameters of price and wage setting equations. There is now a debate about whether standard calibrations of utility functions prevent staggered price models, at least those with frequent price changes, from explaining long persistence of real output. There is much to be discovered from these debates and from the future research they stimulate
Central bank governance and oversight reform by Central Bank Governance and Oversight Reform: A Policy Conference( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Central Bank Governance and Oversight Reform, the distinguished contributors tackle this and a range of other key questions surrounding the balance of central bank authority with accountability and constraints. They discuss the conflicting public attitudes towards the Fed. The authors evaluate recently proposed legislation that would require the Fed to describe its monetary policy rule and, if and when the Fed changed or deviated from its rule, explain the reasons. They apply formal econometric methods to these legislative proposals. In addition they offer a historical perspective on the Federal Reserve, examining whether the Fed's many failures were primarily due to its governance structure or form mistakes in understanding how monetary policy works."
Surprising comparative properties of monetary models results from a new data base by John B Taylor( )

22 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we investigate the comparative properties of empirically-estimated monetary models of the U.S. economy. We make use of a new data base of models designed for such investigations. We focus on three representative models: the Christiano, Eichenbaum, Evans (2005) model, the Smets and Wouters (2007) model, and the Taylor (1993a) model. Although the three models differ in terms of structure, estimation method, sample period, and data vintage, we find surprisingly similar economic impacts of unanticipated changes in the federal funds rate. However, the optimal monetary policy responses to other sources of economic fluctuations are widely different in the different models. We show that simple optimal policy rules that respond to the growth rate of output and smooth the interest rate are not robust. In contrast, policy rules with no interest rate smoothing and no response to the growth rate, as distinct from the level, of output are more robust. Robustness can be improved further by optimizing rules with respect to the average loss across the three models
