Transforming the European economy by Martin Neil Baily( )

15 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As industries evolve and restructure, the ability of an economy to adapt to new economic conditions - its ability to change direction - determines its success over the long run. Europe and Japan grew rapidly for many years, but now, faced with greater challenges, their economies have either failed to generate enough jobs or have failed to achieve the highest levels of productivity (or both). While the US has economic problems, the advantage of its greater flexibility has allowed it to be alone among the three powers in sustaining very high productivity and very strong employment opportunities. In this text, Martin Neil Baily examines the policies that should be followed to facilitate economic adjustment and rapid economic growth in the new environment. He emphasizes three key forces driving a change of direction: expanded global competition; the increased use of information and communications technologies; and the development of the global financial system. Baily says that these have created a new economy due to increased intensity of competition, as well as altered demand patterns and changes in the way businesses operate
US pension reform : lessons from other countries by Martin Neil Baily( )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is generally accepted that Social Security must be reformed, but there is little agreement on what should be done to reform the program. "US Pension Reform: Lessons from Other Countries" looks at the social pension reforms of twelve other countries, assesses the current US Social Security program, and evaluates how these twelve models inform opportunities for adaptation of the current system. The authors consider governments' current fiscal balances in order to contextualize countries' initial financial liabilities and pension program infrastructure. The book concludes with an integrated reform proposal for Social Security. These prescriptions suggest concrete plans to address issues such as underfunding, benefits for high-income participants and the elderly demographic segment, as well as the creation of an individual account program. This volume forges significant advances and boldly confronts the challenge of reconstructing the US Social Security program

The financial crisis of 2008 devastated the American economy and caused U.S. policymakers to rethink their approaches to major 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.

Downsizing and productivity growth : myth or reality? by Martin Neil Baily( )

20 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The conventional wisdom is that the rising productivity in the U.S. manufacturing sector in the 1980s has been driven by the apparently pervasive downsizing over this period. Aggregate evidence clearly shows falling employment accompanying the rise in productivity. In this paper, we examine the microeconomic evidence using the plant level data from the Longitudinal Research Database (LRD). In contrast to the conventional wisdom, we find that plants that increased employment as well as productivity contribute almost as much to overall productivity growth in the 1980s as the plants that increased productivity at the expense of employment. Further, there are striking differences by sector (defined by industry, size, region, wages, and ownership type) in the allocation of plants in terms of whether they upsize or downsize and whether they increase or decrease productivity. Nevertheless, in spite of the striking differences across sectors defined in a variety of ways, most of the variance of productivity and employment growth is accounted for by idiosyncratic factors
Labor productivity : structural change and cyclical dynamics by Martin Neil Baily( Book )

24 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A longstanding puzzle of empirical economics is that average labor productivity declines during recessions and increases during booms. This paper provides a framework to assess the empirical importance of competing hypotheses for explaining the observed procyclicality. For each competing hypothesis we derive the implications for cyclical productivity conditional on expectations of future demand and supply conditions. The novelty of the paper is that we exploit the tremendous heterogeneity in long-run structural changes across individual plants to identify the short-run sources of procyclical productivity. Our findings favor an adjustment cost model which involves a productivity penalty for downsizing as the largest source of procyclical labor productivity
Do we have a new E-conomy? by Martin Neil Baily( )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Used properly, the term 'new e-conomy' is warranted. Since 1995, there has been a wave of innovation associated with both the production and use of information technology that has been translated into improved US economic performance. In particular, there has been a substantial acceleration in trend total factor productivity growth. Most of this acceleration actually took place outside of the computer sector. Almost none of the acceleration was cyclical. There is now clear supportive evidence of an acceleration of productivity in service industries that are major purchasers of information technology such as finance and wholesale and retail trade. These gains reflect not only increased investment in information technology but also complementary innovations in business organization and policy. To be sure, as evidenced by recent financial market volatility, there have been speculative excesses, but these should not obscure the fundamental gains that have been made
