The Economics of exchange rates : selected studies ( Book )
6 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 533 libraries worldwide
The studies deal with the determination of foreign exchange rates and the characteristics of the foreign exchange market. They extend frontiers in theory and test the implications against current and past data. Analysis is made of flexible exchange rates through a new approach the authors have developed, called the "asset-market approach." In a fresh departure from the bulk of economic literature, theory is combined with practical application in a clear, concise way that will be understood by readers with a basic understanding of economics. The first three chapters of the book present the doctrinal history leading to today's view of exchange rate deterioration, outline the authors' new approach, and integrate it with an anlaysis of macroeconomic policies. The remaining eight chapters examine in detail (theoretically and empirically) the various building blocks presented in the initial chapters.

Functioning of the international monetary system ( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
The fiftieth anniversary of the Bretton Woods Conference has surprisingly served as an opportunity to reappraise the role of the International Monetary Fund. Among the appraisals done outside the Fund, a popular theme has been the desirability of strengthening the Fund's role in overseeing the functioning of the international monetary system. Whatever the design of the exchange rate system and the arrangements for the provision of international liquidity, it is widely accepted that such oversight, if it is to be effective, must rest on a strong analytical foundation.

International VAT harmonization : economic effects by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
8 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 56 libraries worldwide
This paper highlights key macroeconomic issues related to VAT harmonization. A model is developed which emphasizes the effects of changes in the profile of various taxes on international behavior. Dynamic simulations reveal that the macroeconomic and welfare implications of VAT harmonization, including conflicts of interest, depend critically on the tax system and the degree of subsitution governing temporal and intertemporal allocations. We also demonstrate that the effects of revenue-neutral tax conversions between income and consumption tax systems undertaken by a single country depend critically on international differences in behavior.
International spillovers of taxation by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
7 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 56 libraries worldwide
This paper highlights key issues pertinent for the understanding of international effects of domestic tax policies and of international tax harmonization. The analytical framework adopts the saving-investment balance approach to the analysis of international economic interdependence focusing on income, consumption, and international borrowing. A simulation model is developed that is richer in structure than the two period analytical model.
From centrally-planned to market economies : the road from CPE to PCPE by Guillermo A Calvo ( Book )
5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 55 libraries worldwide
This paper deals with the early stages of transformation of centrally planned economies (CPEs) into market economies during which expectations play a key role. It focuses on the transitional phase during which the economy is not any more a CPE but has not yet become a market economy. During this phase the economy is referred to as a "previously centrally-planned economy" (PCPE). A simple model is developed to analyze the consequences of expected price liberalization. The CPEs undergoing transformation lack depth and breadth of financial markets. The analysis illustrates the benefits from an early development of such markets. It demonstrates the benefits from an early development of such markets. It demonstrates the cost of a fine-tuning strategy and the benefits from a quick implementation of price reform. The paper also examines means to reduce "liquidity overhang," and shows that they involve taxation of one form or another. The consequences of privatization are analyzed and the benefits from an early development of an effective tax system highlighted.
The international monetary system : developments and prospects by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
8 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
This paper addresses several fundamental issues raised by recent developments in the world economy and considers their implications for the design and functioning of the international monetary system. We do not make any proposals. The four issues examined in the paper are: (1) can the exchange rate regime do much to discipline fiscal policy?; (2) What are the extent and costs of reduced monetary independence under greater fixity of exchange rates?; (3) How can the equilibrium exchange rate best be determined?; and (4) Does a well functioning international monetary system require a clearly defined set of rules, an acknowledged leader, and an explicit anchor?
