Due diligence : a report on the Bank of Canada's handling of foreign gold during World War II by Duncan McDowall( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A document retrieved by World Jewish Congress researchers in Washington gave rise to the allegation that the Bank of Canada had been party, by means of paper transfer, to a complex gold transfer involving six tons of gold shuffled between Switzerland and Portugal in 1942. Later in the war, the document alleged, this same gold became part of a second questionable swap between Portugal and Sweden with Canada's central bank again playing the role of intermediary. The Canadian Jewish Congress echoed the opinion of the World Jewish Congress that the gold transfers involving the Bank looked like a classic money-laundering operation. The Canadian Jewish Congress therefore asked the Bank to undertake an investigation to ascertain its involvement in these transactions. The Bank immediately acquiesced, announcing not only that a thorough internal investigation would be undertaken but also that an outside historian would be asked to complete an independent analysis of the Bank's role in the wartime movement of gold. This is the report of that investigation. It reviews all documents related to gold transactions during the period from the founding of the Bank of Canada in 1935 through 1950, as well as documents from the Department of Finance & other departments and the European banks involved in the transactions. The investigation responds to public concern about possible Bank of Canada involvement in transactions related to looted Nazi gold during and after the Second World War

The Thiessen lectures by Gordon G Thiessen( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection presents lectures given by Gordon Thiessen during his time as Governor of the Bank of Canada. He describes the theoretical vision underlying Canada's monetary policy regime, discusses how it has worked in practice, and places both theory & practice in the context of the evolution of economic thought. The first lecture focusses on how the various types of fiscal market uncertainty influence the behaviour of economic actors and how uncertainty affects the transmission of monetary policy throughout the economy. The second lecture reflects on Canada's experience in using explicit targets aimed at low rates of inflation as the focus for conducting monetary policy. The third lecture reviews change in views on the role of monetary policy since the early 1960s work of the Royal Commission on Banking & Finance (Porter Commission). The final lecture is a selective overview of events critical to the evolution of monetary policy at the Bank of Canada from its founding in 1935 to 2000

A stochastic simulation framework for the government of Canada's debt strategy by David Bolder( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debt strategy is defined as the manner in which a government finances an excess of government expenditures over revenues and any maturing debt issued in previous periods. The author gives a thorough qualitative description of the complexities of debt strategy analysis and then demonstrates that it is, in fact, a problem in stochastic optimal control. Although this formal definition is conceptually useful, the author recommends the use of simulation to help characterize the set of strategies that a government can use to fund its borrowing requirements. He then describes in detail a stochastic simulation framework, building from previous work in Bolder (2001, 2002); this framework forms one important element in the debt strategy decision-making process employed by the Government of Canada. The primary objective in constructing this stochastic simulation framework is to learn about the nature of the risk and cost trade-offs associated with different financing strategies. To this end, the paper includes a detailed description of the model; a set of possible debt cost and risk measures, including one potentially useful conditional risk measure; illustrative results under normal stochastic conditions; an analysis of the sensitivity of the results to various key model parameters; a novel approach to stress testing; and a possible framework for selecting a financing strategy, given assumptions about government risk preferences
Entrepreneurship, inequality, and taxation by Césaire Assah Meh( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper confirms the conjecture that the evaluation of tax policy leads to very different conclusions once the role of entrepreneurs is considered. Contrary to previous literature, the author finds that switching from a progressive to a proportional income tax system has a negligible effect on wealth inequality in the United States. This surprising result arises because entrepreneurial activities moderate the effects of the policy change on the wealth distribution. The author shows that proportional income tax reform increases entrepreneurial investment and savings by reducing the marginal income tax rates paid by entrepreneurs. Within the model, an increase in business investment implies a higher demand for labour, which raises the wage rate of workers and drives down the average return to entrepreneurial activities. This general-equilibrium feedback narrows the income and savings gap between workers and entrepreneurs, and, in turn, leads to a reduction in income and wealth inequality. While the elimination of progressive income taxation increases entrepreneurial investments, it has almost no effect on the number of entrepreneurs, as the costs of entrepreneurial activities rise with increasing wages. The model is also able to account for the substantial share of income and wealth held by entrepreneurs, the high savings rate of entrepreneurs relative to workers, and the high concentration of wealth observed in the data
