Inflation, unemployment, and monetary policy by John B Taylor( )

49 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Polish and held by 2,194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, Robert M. Solow and John B. Taylor present their views on the dilemmas facing U.S. monetary policymakers. The discussants are Benjamin M. Friedman, James K. Galbraith, N. Gregory Mankiw, and William Poole. The aim of this lively exchange of views is to make both an intellectual contribution to macroeconomics and a practical contribution to the solution of a public policy question of central importance."--Jacket
Monetary policy rules by John B Taylor( )

32 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Spanish and held by 1,577 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
Getting off track : how government actions and interventions caused, prolonged, and worsened the financial crisis by John B Taylor( Book )

23 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,213 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
Government policies and the delayed economic recovery by Lee E Ohanian( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,193 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. Drawing on empirical research that looks at issues from policy uncertainty to increased regulation, the volume offers a broad-based assessment of how government policies are slowing economic growth and provides a framework for understanding how those policies should change to restore prosperity in America
Bankruptcy not bailout : a special chapter 14 by Kenneth E Scott( )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,119 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

Economics by John B Taylor( Book )

65 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 552 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
Across the great divide : new perspectives on the financial crisis by Martin Neil Baily( )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 548 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 consi
Policy stability and economic growth : lessons from the great recession by John B Taylor( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Taylor is one of the foremost economists of our generation. His ideas were implemented in central banks across the world during the period of price stability, economic growth and financial stability that followed the 1980s. This period culminated in the financial crisis of 2008 which was followed by a very slow recovery which, seven years on, can hardly be said to be complete. This book presents Taylor's view of the financial crisis and its aftermath.Taylor argues that deviating from strict policy rules, both before and since the crisis, contributed to the events of 2008-13 and, especially, the very slow recovery in national income after the financial crisis. Furthermore, in other areas of government activity, such as regulation and law-making more generally, instability is being created, which is very bad for the economy. --

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 527 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

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

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 522 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."--

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
