The political economy of Japanese monetary policy by Thomas F Cargill( )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 2,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Political Economy of Japanese Monetary Policy, Cargill, Hutchison, and Ito investigate the formulation and execution of monetary and financial policies in Japan within a broad technical, political, and institutional context. Their emphasis is on the period since the early 1970s, when the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates collapsed, and on how policies and institutions have shaped the modern Japanese economy. In addition to presenting basic themes, recent developments, and their own research findings, they review and integrate the large literature, considering theoretical arguments and empirical evidence
Governance, regulation, and privatization in the Asia-Pacific Region by Takatoshi Itō( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 2,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last twenty-five years, there has been an acceleration in the move from government regulation toward privatization. Governance, Regulation, and Privatization in the Asia-Pacific Region is the first thoroughgoing account of the relative success of the different approaches to privatization as undertaken in Korea, China, Australia, and Japan." "Providing provocative examples of the methods of privatization in the Asia-Pacific region specifically, these papers will be of huge import to any economist or policymaker interested in transposing those successes to their own region"--Jacket

International trade in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( )

16 editions published between 1950 and 2007 in English and held by 1,854 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In International Trade in East Asia, a group of esteemed contributors provides a summary of empirical factors of international trade specifically as they pertain to East Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan." "Comprised of twelve fascinating studies, International Trade in East Asia highlights many of the trading practices between countries within the region as well as outside of it. While many praise the region's sophisticated production and distribution networks, the contributors here bring into focus some of the region's internal and external barriers to international trade and discuss strategies for improving productivity and fostering trade relationships. Studies on some of the factors that drive exports, the influence of research and development, the effects of foreign investment, the World Trade Organization's new dispute settlement system, and the ramifications of different types of protectionism will particularly resonate with the financial and economic communities that are trying to keep pace with this dramatically altered landscape."--Jacket
Fiscal policy and management in East Asia by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,825 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managing fiscal policy--the revenues and spending of an individual nation--is among the most challenging tasks facing governments. Wealthy countries are constrained by complex regulation and taxation policies, while developing nations often face high inflation and trade taxes. In this volume, esteemed economists Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose, along with other leading experts, examine the problems and challenges facing public finance in East Asian developing countries as well as the United States and Japan. Fiscal Policy and Management in East Asia explores the inefficient tax systems of many developing countries, the relationship between public and private sector economic behavior, and the pressing issue of future obligations that governments have undertaken to provide pensions and health care for their citizens. Featuring both overviews and analyses of the countries discussed, this book will be of value to economists and policymakers seeking to understand fiscal policy in a global context

Trade and protectionism by Takatoshi Itō( )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first two papers in the volume look at the context in which East Asian trading relations with the United States take place. The papers focus on the role of GATT, the importance of an open multilateral trading system, and the current threats to it. An analysis of the United States' regional trading arrangements is also included. The second set of papers addresses sensitive sectoral issues that have led to frictions in Japanese-American semiconductor trade and agricultural protection among Japan, Korea, and Hong Kong. In the third group of studies, the authors examine U.S.-Japanese trade issues, the impact of U.S.-administered protection on Korean exports, and the openness of the Japanese market to exports from other Asian countries
The role of foreign direct investment in East Asian economic development by Takatoshi Itō( )

15 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 1,723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The international flow of long-term private capital has increased dramatically in the 1990s. In fact, many policymakers now consider private foreign capital to be an essential resource for the acceleration of economic growth. This volume focuses attention on the microeconomic determinants and effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the East Asian region, allowing researchers to explore the overall structure of FDI, to offer case studies of individual countries, and to consider their insights, both general and particular, within the context of current economic theory
Changes in exchange rates in rapidly developing countries : theory, practice, and policy issues by Takatoshi Itō( )

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The exchange rate is a crucial variable linking a nation's domestic economy to the international market. Thus choice of an exchange rate regime is a central component in the economic policy of developing countries and a key factor affecting economic growth. Historically, most developing nations have employed strict exchange rate controls and heavy protection of domestic industry-policies now thought to be at odds with sustainable and desirable rates of economic growth. By contrast, many East Asian nations maintained exchange rate regimes designed to achieve an attractive climate for exports an
Regionalism versus multilateral trade arrangements by Takatoshi Itō( )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no doubt that after World War II the open multilateral trading system was a key ingredient in the rapid economic development of the entire world. Especially in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, exports increased dramatically both in absolute terms and as a percentage of GNP. In the 1980s, however, preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) began to emerge as significant factors affecting world trade. This volume contains thirteen papers that analyze the tensions between multilateral trading systems and preferential trade arrangements and the impact of these tensions on East Asia
Regional and global capital flows : macroeconomic causes and consequences by Takatoshi Itō( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume of capital flows between industrial and developing countries has grown dramatically in the past decade and has become a major issue in a world that is increasingly ""globalized."" Here Takatoshi Ito and Anne O. Krueger, two leading experts on this topic, have assembled a group of scholars who address different types of capital flows-bank lending, bonds, direct foreign investment-and the implications they hold for economic performance. With its particular focus on the Asian financial crises, this work presents a new model for policy makers everywhere in thinking about the role o

Monetary policy with very low inflation in the Pacific Rim by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Extremely low inflation rates have moved to the forefront of monetary policy discussions. In Asia, a number of countries--most prominently Japan, but also Taiwan and China--have actually experienced deflation over the last fifteen years. Monetary Policy with Very Low Inflation in the Pacific Rim explores the factors that have contributed to these circumstances and forecasts some of the potential challenges faced by these nations, as well as some potential solutions. The editors of this volume attribute low inflation and deflation in the region to a number of recent phenomena. Some of these episodes, they argue, may be linked to rapid growth on the supply side of economies. Here, inadequate demand policy can produce what is referred to as a "liquidity trap" in which the expectation of falling prices encourages agents to defer costly purchases, thereby discouraging growth. Low inflation rates can also be traced to the presence of a "zero-lower bound" on interest rates, as well as the inflation-targeting phenomenon. Targets have been set so low, the editors argue, that in some cases a few bad shocks lead to deflation."--Publisher's website
Growth and productivity in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 1,663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considering the examples of Australia and the Pacific Rim, Growth and Productivity in East Asia offers a contemporary explanation for national productivity that measures contributions not only from capital and labor, but also from economic activities and relevant changes in policy, education, and technology. Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose have organized a group of collaborators from several Asian countries, the United States, and other parts of the globe who ably balance both macroeconomic and microeconomic study with theoretical and empirical approaches. Growth and Productivity in East Asia
Financial policy and central banking in Japan by Thomas F Cargill( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Japan's financial institutions and policy underwent remarkable change in the past decade. The country began the 1990s with a heavily regulated financial system managed by an unchallenged Ministry of Finance and ended the decade with a Big Bang financial market reform, a complete restructuring of its regulatory financial institutions, and an independent central bank. These reforms have taken place amid recession and rising unemployment, collapsing asset prices, a looming banking crisis, and the lowest interest rates in the industrial world. This book analyzes how the bank-dominated financial system--a key element of the oft-heralded "Japanese economic model"--Broke down in the 1990s and spawned sweeping reforms. It documents the sources of the Japanese economic stagnation of the 1990s, the causes of the financial crisis, the slow and initially limited policy response to banking problems, and the reform program that followed. It also evaluates the new financial structure and reforms at the Bank of Japan in light of the challenges facing the Japanese economy. These challenges range from conducting monetary policy in a zero-interest rate environment characterized by a "liquidity trap" to managing consolidation in the Japanese banking sector against the backdrop of increasing international competition
