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

Economics by John B Taylor( Book )

64 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Economics, noted economist and teacher John Taylor unravels sophisticated material by combining clear, straightforward writing with annotated graphs and real-life examples that drive students' interest in modern economic theory. The first to cover long-run fundamentals before short-term economic fluctuations, Taylor's modern approach helps students to understand the basic determinants of growth (labor, capital, and technology) before introducing fluctuations (inflation, output, and employment) that can occur even during periods of steady growth. In addition, he offers a breakthrough discussion of economic fluctuations -- modifying the classic AD/AS model to include inflation so that students gain a realistic viewpoint on long-run growth. Chapters 5-7 address the efficiency of competitive markets, setting the stage for later discussion of market failure and government policy. An in-depth description of an experimental double-oral auction in Chapter 7 provides a unique perspective on people's economic interactions with the market. Expanded applications and case studies appear throughout the text, providing more opportunities for students to connect the material with the real world. Updated discussions of the latest economic developments in the U.S. and around the world -- including the 2001 recession -- illustrate practical, contemporary applications for concepts covered in the text. Numerous graphs feature Taylor's trademark "conversation boxes" and offer students a step-by-step illustration of the economic models and theories under review. Economics in Action boxes highlight how economic principles shape everyday life, including "Green Pricing and Incentives," and "Digital Cameras and the Future of Film." Likewise, Reading the News boxes help students decipher recent news stories about economic policy, including the impact of 9/11 and the downsizing of the dot-com business sector. - Publisher

Monetary policy rules by John B Taylor( Book )

31 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 478 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
Macroeconomic policy in a world economy : from econometric design to practical operation by John B Taylor( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion of a policy rule, defined as the systematic response of the policy instruments to the state of the economy, is pervasive in modern macroeconomic research. Experts like Professor Taylor regularly respond to questions about how policy affects the economy. Sometimes the questions - such as the independence of the central bank, the formation of a currency bloc, the enforcement of government budget rules - concern the fundamental design of the policy-making institutions

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the reasons for the unprecedented weak recovery following the recent US recession and explores the possibility that government economic policy is the problem.

Making failure feasible : how bankruptcy reform can end "too big to fail" by Kenneth E Scott( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 166 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
Bankruptcy not bailout : a special chapter 14 by Kenneth E Scott( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 165 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
Across the great divide : new perspectives on the financial crisis by Martin Neil Baily( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 125 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

Central bank governance and oversight reform by John H Cochrane( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 72 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."
Staggered price and wage setting in macroeconomics by John B Taylor( Book )

11 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Rules for international monetary stability : past, present, and future by Michael D Bordo( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the end of the Great Recession in 2009 the central banks of the advanced countries have taken unprecedented actions to reflate and stimulate their economies. There have been significant differences in the timing and pace of these actions ... These independent monetary policy actions have had significant spillover effects on the economies and monetary policy strategies of other advanced countries. In addition the monetary policy actions and interventions of the advanced countries have had a significant impact on the emerging market economies leading to the charge of 'currency wars.' The perceived negative consequences of spillovers from the actions of national central banks has led to calls for international monetary policy coordination ... The arguments for coordination based on game theory are the same today as back in the 1980s ... [which led to accords that requried participating countries to] follow policies to improve global welfare at the expense of domestic fundamentals ... An alternative approach to the international spillovers of national monetary policy actions is to view them as deviations from rules based monetary policy ... In this book, [the editors] report the results from a recent conference which brought together academics, market participants, and policymakers to focus on these issues."--
