The economics of post-communist transition by Olivier Blanchard( )

42 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, by a distinguished economist who has worked on transition since its beginning, presents a unified analysis of this process of transition. It focuses on the U-shaped response of output, its causes and its implications. The book has four chapters. The first reviews the facts. The second focuses on the two basic mechanisms underlying transition, reallocation and restructuring. The third looks more closely at a number of pieces, from the interactions between restructuring and privatisation to the nature of the labour market in transition. The fourth chapter puts the pieces together in an analytical model of transition. The model is then used to discuss policy issues, from the design of privatization to the role of fiscal policy in transition
The Transition in Eastern Europe by Olivier Blanchard( )

22 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When communism fell in 1989, the question for most Eastern European countries was not whether to go to a market economy, but how to get there. Several years later, the difficult process of privatization and restructuring continues to concern the countries of the region. The Transition in Eastern Europe, Volumes 1 and 2 is an analysis of the experiences of various countries making the transition to market economies and examines the most important challenges still in store. Volume 1, Country Studies, gives an in-depth, country-by-country analysis of various reform experiences, including historic
Progress and confusion : the state of macroeconomic policy by Olivier Blanchard( )

20 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What will economic policy look like once the global financial crisis is finally over? Will it resume the pre-crisis consensus, or will it be forced to contend with a post-crisis "new normal"? Have we made progress in addressing these issues, or does confusion remain? In April of 2015, the International Monetary Fund gathered leading economists, both academics and policymakers, to address the shape of future macroeconomic policy. This book is the result, with prominent figures-including Ben Bernanke, John Taylor, and Paul Volcker-offering essays that address topics that range from the measurement of systemic risk to foreign exchange intervention. The chapters address whether we have entered a "new normal" of low growth, negative real rates, and deflationary pressures, with contributors taking opposing views; whether new financial regulation has stemmed systemic risk; the effectiveness of macro prudential tools; monetary policy, the choice of inflation targets, and the responsibilities of central banks; fiscal policy, stimulus, and debt stabilization; the volatility of capital flows; and the international monetary and financial system, including the role of international policy coordination. In light of these discussions, is there progress or confusion regarding the future of macroeconomic policy? In the final chapter, volume editor Olivier Blanchard answers: both. Many lessons have been learned; but, as the chapters of the book reveal, there is no clear agreement on several key issues

The transition in Eastern Europe by Olivier Jean Blanchard( )

What have we learned? : macroeconomic policy after the crisis by George A Akerlof( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 2008, economic policymakers and researchers have occupied a brave new economic world. Previous consensuses have been upended, former assumptions have been cast into doubt, and new approaches have yet to stand the test of time. Policymakers have been forced to improvise and researchers to rethink basic theory. George Akerlof, Nobel Laureate and one of this volume's editors, compares the crisis to a cat stuck in a tree, afraid to move. In April 2013, the International Monetary Fund brought together leading economists and economic policymakers to discuss the slowly emerging contours of the macroeconomic future. This book offers their combined insights. The contributors consider the lessons learned from the crisis and its aftermath. They discuss, among other things, post-crisis questions about the traditional policy focus on inflation; macroprudential tools (which focus on the stability of the entire financial system rather than of individual firms) and their effectiveness; fiscal stimulus, public debt, and fiscal consolidation; and exchange rate arrangements

Growth forecast errors and fiscal multipliers by Olivier Blanchard( )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper investigates the relation between growth forecast errors and planned fiscal consolidation during the crisis. We find that, in advanced economies, stronger planned fiscal consolidation has been associated with lower growth than expected, with the relation being particularly strong, both statistically and economically, early in the crisis. A natural interpretation is that fiscal multipliers were substantially higher than implicitly assumed by forecasters. The weaker relation in more recent years may reflect in part learning by forecasters and in part smaller multipliers than in the early years of the crisis

Politique économique by Agnès Bénassy-Quéré( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in French and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique: "Les crises ont profondément transformé la politique économique. La tempête financière de 2008, la Grande Récession qui a suivi, les déboires de la zone euro, le niveau très faible de l'inflation, le ralentissement de la croissance, la hausse des dettes publiques et l'augmentation des inégalités ont ébranlé les certitudes passées et appellent de nouvelles réponses. Des chapitres oubliés de la théorie économique ont été relus et des instruments nouveaux ont été mis en place. Les questions qui se posent sont plus pressantes que jamais. Dans quelles circonstances la politique budgétaire est-elle efficace pour combattre une récession? Quelles sont les limites de l'endettement public? Que peut la politique monétaire lorsque l'inflation est voisine de zéro? Comment contrôler la finance? Quelles politiques faut-il mener ensemble, et lesquelles faut-il conduire séparément? Comment taxer le capital? Comment stimuler l'emploi? Comment changer la qualité de la croissance? Parce qu'il réunit, dans un seul volume, les principaux enseignements théoriques et l'analyse des débats actuels, Politique économique s'est imposé depuis plus de dix ans comme la référence pour comprendre les politiques économiques d'aujourd'hui. Cette quatrième édition a été entièrement refondue pour prendre en compte les derniers développements et débats sur la politique économique. Elle propose notamment un nouveau chapitre consacré à l'instabilité financière et aux politiques susceptibles d'y répondre."
Spanish unemployment : Is there a solution? by Olivier Blanchard( Book )

13 editions published between 1989 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there a solution to Spanish unemployment? Currently standing at an extraordinary rate of 25% of the workforce, its reduction to 5% within ten years requires the annual creation of 400,000 jobs, and economic growth of at least 5% a year. This report contends that such a goal is not only possible. but that it should be the primary focus of Spain's economic policy. The authors, a distinguished group of economists from Spain, France, the United Kingdom and the United States, first diagnose the proximate causes of high unemployment. More importantly, they then identify the conditions under which it can be reduced, arguing for a sustained expansion of demand, encouraged by appropriate macroeconomic policies, and made in combination with supply-side reforms of the Spanish labour market. Within the context of an economic environment highly favourable to the implementation of such a strategy, the authors present specific recommendations on collective bargaining, firing costs, social insurance, the long-term unemployed and fiscal and monetary policies. These form a timely contribution to the problem of Spanish unemployment. The report consists of a straightforward statement of the proposed strategy, accompanied by a series of more technical papers
Reconstructing the world economy by Il SaKong( Book )

15 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents papers from a high-level conference organized by the Korea Development Institute and the IMF "for policymakers and academics from the Asian region and from G-20 countries to discuss forward-looking economic and financial issues of interest to the international community, such as restoring normalcy to fiscal policy, macroprudential regulation, the future of the financial system, global fiscal imbalances, and the international monetary system. Topics include: (1) A strategy for renormalizing fiscal and monetary policies in advanced economies. Key principles for restoring financial stability in the wake of the crisis, including the timing and sequence for exit, are identified. (2) Rethinking macroeconomic policy. This section examines if and how macroeconomic policy should respond to sectoral imbalances and asset-price and housing imbalances, as well as a potential role for macroprudential regulation. (3) Redesigning the financial system of the future. Responses by both policymakers and the private sector to recent events are evaluated in terms of how they will shape the future financial system and its role in the global economy. (4) Global imbalances. The argument is made that there is an urgent need to address the domestic and international distortions that are a key cause of imbalances; failure to do so would threaten the sustainability of the recovery. (5) The future of the international monetary system. Steps that can be taken to address the inherent weaknesses in the current system are described, including possible solutions on both the demand side and on the supply side."--Publisher's description
Evolution or revolution? : rethinking macroeconomic policy after the Great recession by Olivier Blanchard( Book )

16 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Great Depression led to the Keynesian revolution and dramatic shifts in macroeconomic theory and macroeconomic policy. Similarly, the stagflation of the 1970s led to the adoption of the natural rate hypothesis and to a major reassessment of the role of macroeconomic policy. Should the financial crisis and the Great Recession lead to yet another major reassessment and intellectual revolution?Will it? If so, what form should it, or will it, take? These are the questions taken up in the book, in a series of contributions by policymakers and academics. The contributors discuss the complex role of the financial sector, the relative roles of monetary and fiscal policy, the limits of monetary policy to address financial stability, the need for fiscal policy to play a more active role in stabilization, and the relative roles of financial regulation and macroprudential tools. The general message is a warning against going back to precrisis ways--to narrow inflation targeting, little use of fiscal policy for stabilization, and insufficient financial regulation
Suggestions for a new set of fiscal indicators by Olivier Blanchard( Book )

18 editions published in 1990 in English and German and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are four sets of questions that fiscal indicators can help answer: (1) Of the changes in the fiscal position, what part is due to changes in the economic environment and what part is due to policy? (2) Can the current course of fiscal policy be sustained, or will the government have to adjust taxes or spending? (3) What is the effect of fiscal policy on activity, through its effects on relative prices, be it the price of labour or the price of capital? (4) What is the macroeconomic impact of fiscal policy, through deficit and debt finance?This paper is one of three in this Working Paper Series, along with those by Chouraqui et al. and Gramlich, in which the assessment of fiscal policy is reconsidered. It argues that no single indicator can give even rough answers to all those questions. It then develops four (sets of) indicators, aimed at answering each of the questions
On the speed of transition in Central Europe by Philippe Aghion( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transition in central Europe involves the closing and restructuring of state firms, as well as the emergence of a new private sector. The speed of closing and restructuring and the rate of private job creation determine the dynamics of unemployment. And unemployment in turn affects both the decisions to restructure as well as to create new private jobs. Our paper presents a model which captures these interactions. It characterises the positive and normative properties of the equilibrium speed of transition and unemployment rate, and the role of policy
