Monetary policy by N. Gregory Mankiw( )
23 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Of the nine papers in this volume, the first three evaluate a variety of policy rules based on monetary aggregates, nominal income, commodity prices, and other economic variables. The next three analyze the behavior of prices and inflation with an emphasis on understanding the short-run behavior of prices. The following two chapters examine the monetary transmission mechanism - the channel through which the central bank's actions affect spending on goods and services - with a special focus on the reduction in bank lending that must accompany a reduction in reserves. The final chapter analyzes the causes and effects of the Federal Reserve's shift to an explicitly disinflationary policy, a shift which has been made several times since World War II. This volume makes an important contribution to monetary policy research and will be of special interest to central bankers and academic economists
Grundzüge der Volkswirtschaftslehre by N. Gregory Mankiw( Book )
68 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Economics is the UK and European adaptation of Greg Mankiw?s classic textbook 'Principles of economics', expertly adapted by Mark Taylor. The authors present economics from the viewpoint of a reader completely new to the subject. The book appeals to the more applied, business-oriented courses. The conversational yet precise writing style is superb for presenting the politics and science of economic theories to tomorrow's decision-makers. The book encourages students to apply an economic way of thinking in their daily lives. Economics is written to provide students with a robust conceptual understanding of the subject using contemporary approaches to theory where possible. It follows the structure of the original book while reflecting European economic structures and institutions and adapting the language and cultural references for a European readership. It mainly uses UK and European case studies, press extracts and the Euro and includes a section devoted to common currency areas and European monetary union

"Économiste de renommée mondiale, Gregory N. Mankiw a révolutionné l'économie moderne. Il est l'un des représentants de la nouvelle économie keynésienne. Ses recherches sont extrêmement variées, aussi importantes pour la théorie que dans leurs applications. Ce manuel de macroéconomie est LE cours le plus connu tant par sa richesse que par ses aspects pédagogiques. Il est également le plus utilisé dans le monde. Il a été traduit en arménien, chinois, français, allemand, grec, hongrois, indonésien, italien, japonais, coréen, portugais, roumain, russe, espagnol et ukrainien. Cette 4e édition expose de façon simple, progressive et rigoureuse les principes fondamentaux de la macroéconomie moderne avec le souci constant d'associer l'analyse théorique et le monde réel à l'aide de 79 études de cas puisées dans l'histoire économique. En outre, elle présente les avancées les plus récentes de la discipline et comporte de nouvelles données et analyses sur les grands débats de politique économique. Très complet, ce manuel est le support essentiel pour l'enseignant et le manuel de référence pour les étudiants de niveau licence et master. Il insiste sur l'importance de l'analyse aussi bien du court terme, tels que le cycle conjoncturel ou la politique de stabilisation, que du long terme, notamment la croissance, le chômage, l'inflation, ou encore la dette publique. Il intègre les lignes directrices de la pensée économique tant keynésienne que (néo-)classique grâce à la place réservée aux théories modernes des prix et des salaires. Il multiplie les modèles simples plutôt qu'un modèle complexe à vocation universelle, exposant d'emblée les étudiants à des approches diversifiées des phénomènes économiques."--[Résumé de l'éditeur]

Government debt by Douglas W Elmendorf( Book )
18 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: This paper surveys the literature on the macroeconomic effects of government debt. It begins by discussing the data on debt and deficits, including the historical time series, measurement issues, and projections of future fiscal policy. The paper then presents the conventional theory of government debt, which emphasizes aggregate demand in the short run and crowding out in the long run. It next examines the theoretical and empirical debate over the theory of debt neutrality called Ricardian equivalence. Finally, the paper considers the various normative perspectives about how the government should use its ability to borrow

Capital mobility in neoclassical models of growth by Robert J Barro( Book )
24 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The empirical evidence reveals conditional convergence in the sense that economies grow faster per capita if they start further below their steady-state positions. For a homogeneous group of economies - like the U.S. states, regions of western European countries, and the GECD countries - the convergence is unconditional in that the poor economies grow faster than the rich ones. The neoclassical growth model for a closed economy fits these facts if capital is viewed broadly to encompass human investments, so that diminishing returns to capital set in slowly, and if differences in government policies or preferences about saving lead to heterogeneity in steady-state positions. Yet if the model is opened to allow for full capital mobility, then the predicted rates of convergence for capital and output are much higher than those observed empirically. We show that the open-economy model conforms with the evidence if an economy can use foreign debt to finance only a portion of its capital, even if 50% or more of the total. The problems in using human capital as collateral can explain the required imperfection in the credit market

What measure of inflation should a central bank target? by N. Gregory Mankiw( Book )
19 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: This paper assumes that a central bank commits itself to maintaining an inflation target and then asks what measure of the inflation rate the central bank should use if it wants to maximize economic stability. The paper first formalizes this problem and examines its microeconomic foundations. It then shows how the weight of a sector in the stability price index depends on the sector's characteristics, including size, cyclical sensitivity, sluggishness of price adjustment, and magnitude of sectoral shocks. When a numerical illustration of the problem is calibrated to U.S. data, one tentative conclusion is that a central bank that wants to achieve maximum stability of economic activity should use a price index that gives substantial weight to the level of nominal wages
What do budget deficits do? by Laurence M Ball( Book )
13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper discusses the effects of budget deficits on the economy in four steps. First, it reviews standard theory about how budget deficits influence saving, investment, the trade balance, interest rates, exchange rates, and long-term growth. Second, it offers a rough estimate of the magnitude of some of the effects. Third, it discusses how budget deficits affect economic welfare. Finally, it considers the possibility that continuing budget deficits in a country could lead to a 'hard landing' in which the demand for the country's assets suddenly collapses

Stock market yields and the pricing of municipal bonds by N. Gregory Mankiw( Book )
13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: This paper proposes an alternative to the traditional model for explaining the spread between taxable and tax-exempt bond yields. This alternative model is a special case of a general class of clientele models of portfolio choice and asset market equilibrium. In particular, we consider a setting with two types of investors, a taxable investor and a tax-exempt investor, who hold specialized bond portfolios. The tax-exempt investor holds only taxable bonds, and the taxable investor holds only tax-exempt bonds. Both investors hold equity, and the taxable and tax-exempt bond markets are linked through the equilibrium conditions governing equity holding and bond holding for each type of investor. In contrast to the traditional model, this alternative model has the potential to explain the small observed spread between taxable and tax-exempt yields. In addition, this model predicts that the yield spread between taxable and tax-exempt bonds should be an increasing function of the dividend yield on corporate stocks. Although the substantial changes in the tax code during the last four decades complicate the testing of this model, we find some support for the predicted relationship between the equity dividend yield and the yield spread between taxable and tax-exempt bonds
A sticky-price manifesto by Laurence M Ball( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Macroeconomists are divided on the best way to explain short-run economic fluctuations. This paper presents the case for traditional theories based on short-run price stickiness. It discusses the fundamental basis for believing in this class of macreconomic models. It also discusses recent research on the microeconomic foundations of sticky prices

An asset allocation puzzle by Niko Canner( Book )
12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper examines popular advice on portfolio allocation among cash, bonds, and stocks. It documents that this advice is inconsistent with the mutual-fund separation theorem, which states that all investors should hold the same composition of risky assets. In contrast to the theorem, popular advisors recommend that aggressive investors hold a lower ratio of bonds to stocks than conservative investors. The paper explores various possible explanations of this puzzle. It concludes that the portfolio recommendations can be explained if popular advisors base their advice on the unconditional distribution of nominal returns. It also finds that the cost of this money illusion is small, as measured by the distance of the recommended portfolios from the mean-variance efficient frontier
The deficit gamble by Laurence M Ball( Book )
14 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The historical behavior of interest rates and growth rates in U.S. data suggests that the government can, with a high probability, run temporary budget deficits and then roll over the resulting government debt forever. The purpose of this paper is to document this finding and to examine its implications. Using a standard overlapping-generations model of capital accumulation, we show that whenever a perpetual rollover of debt succeeds, policy can make every generation better off. This conclusion does not imply that deficits are good policy, for an attempt to roll over debt forever might fail. But the adverse effects of deficits, rather than being inevitable, occur with only a small probability
