Inflation targeting : lessons from the international experience by Ben Bernanke( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How should governments and central banks use monetary policy to create a healthy economy? Traditionally, policymakers have used such strategies as controlling the growth of the money supply or pegging the exchange rate to a stable currency. In recent years a promising new approach has emerged: publicly announcing and pursuing specific targets for the rate of inflation. This book is an in-depth study of inflation targeting. Combining penetrating theoretical analysis with detailed empirical studies of countries where inflation targeting has been adopted, the authors show that the strategy has clear advantages over traditional policies. They argue that the U.S
Essays on the great depression by Ben Bernanke( Book )

The inflation-targeting debate( Book )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Inflation-Targeting Debate, a distinguished group of contributors explores the many underexamined dimensions of inflation targeting - its potential, its successes, and its limitations - from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, and for both developed and emerging economies. The volume opens with a discussion of the optimal formulation of inflation-targeting policy and continues with a debate about the desirability of such a model for the United States. The concluding chapters discuss the special problems of inflation targeting in emerging markets, including the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary."--Jacket
Essays on the Great Depression by Ben Bernanke( Book )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ben S. Bernanke has gathered together his essays on why the Great Depression was so devastating and lasted so long. These essays include some of the most recent research on the international character of the crisis. This broad view shows us that while the Great Depression was an unparalleled disaster on a truly universal scale, some economies pulled up faster than others, and some made an opportunity out of a disaster. By comparing and contrasting the economic strategies and statistics of the world's nations as they struggled to survive economically, the fundamental lessons of macroeconomics stand out in bold relief against a background of immense human suffering. The essays in this volume present a uniquely coherent view of the economic causes and worldwide propagation of the depression." --Résumé de l'éditeur

Economics : a very short introduction by Partha Dasgupta( Book )

19 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los principios básicos. El principio de la escasez: tener una cantidad mayor de una cosa normalmente significa tener una menor de otra. El principio del coste-beneficio: no debe emprenderse una acción a menos que su beneficio marginal sea al menos tan grande como su coste marginal. El principio de los incentivos: las comparaciones coste-beneficio son relevantes no sólo para identificar las decisiones que deben tomar las personas racionales sino también para predecir las decisiones que tomarán realmente. El principio de la ventaja comparativa: todo el mundo obtiene mejores resultados cuando cada uno se concentra en la actividad en la que es relativamente más productivo. El principio del coste de oportunidad creciente: deben utilizarse los recursos que tienen el menor coste de oportunidad antes que los que tienen el mayor coste de oportunidad. El principio del equilibrio: un mercado en equilibrio no deja sin explotar ninguna oportunidad individual, pero puede no explotar todas las oportunidades que pueden aprovecharse por medio de la acción colectiva. El principio de la eficiencia: la eficiencia es un importante objetivo social, ya que cuando la tarta económica aumenta, todo el mundo puede obtener un trozo mayor. El naturalismo económico. ¿Por qué están las ballenas y los elefantes en peligro de extinción, pero no los pollos? ¿Por qué están los comercios concentrados en una misma zona? ¿Por qué las colas que se forman en las cajas de los supermercados tienden a ser todas ellas más o menos de la misma longitud? ¿Por qué bajó la Reserva Federal los tipos de interés en 2001 2003 y los subió en 2004 2005? ¿Es China el número uno?

The financial accelerator and the flight to quality by Ben Bernanke( Book )

18 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adverse shocks to the economy may be amplified by worsening credit-market conditions-- the financial 'accelerator'. Theoretically, we interpret the financial accelerator as resulting from endogenous changes over the business cycle in the agency costs of lending. An implication of the theory is that, at the onset of a recession, borrowers facing high agency costs should receive a relatively lower share of credit extended (the flight to quality) and hence should account for a proportionally greater part of the decline in economic activity. We review the evidence for these predictions and present new evidence drawn from a panel of large and small manufacturing firms
Measuring monetary policy by Ben Bernanke( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extending the approach of Bernanke and Blinder (1992), Strongin (1992), and Christiano, Eichenbaum, and Evans (1994a, 1994b), we develop and apply a VAR-based methodology for measuring the stance of monetary policy. More specifically, we develop a "semi-structural" VAR approach, which extracts information about monetary policy from data on bank reserves and the federal funds rate but leaves the relationships among the macroeconomic variables in the system unrestricted. The methodology nests earlier VAR-based measures and can be used to compare and evaluate these indicators. It can also be used to construct measures of the stance of policy that optimally incorporate estimates of the Fed's operating procedure for any given period. Among existing approaches, we find that innovations to the federal funds rate (Bernanke-Blinder) are a good measure of policy innovations during the periods 1965-79 and 1988-94; for the period 1979-94 as a whole, innovations to the component of nonborrowed reserves that is orthogonal to total reserves (Strongin) seems to be the best choice. We develop a new measure of policy stance that conforms well to qualitative indicators of policy such as the Boschen-Mills (1991) index. Innovations to our measure lead to reasonable and precisely estimated dynamic responses by variables such as real GDP and the GDP deflator. -- monetary policy ; monetary policy stance ; semi-structural VAR approach
The financial accelerator in a quantitative business cycle framework by Ben Bernanke( Book )

14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper develops a dynamic general equilibrium model that is intended to help clarify the role of credit market frictions in business fluctuations, from both a qualitative and a quantitative standpoint. The model is a synthesis of the leading approaches in the literature. In particular, the framework exhibits a financial accelerator, ' in that endogenous developments in credit markets work to amplify and propagate shocks to the macroeconomy. In addition, we add several features to the model that are designed to enhance the empirical relevance. First, we incorporate money and price stickiness, which allows us to study how credit market frictions may influence the transmission of monetary policy. In addition, we allow for lags in investment which enables the model to generate both hump-shaped output dynamics and a lead-lag relation between asset prices and investment, as is consistent with the data. Finally, we allow for heterogeneity among firms to capture the fact that borrowers have differential access to capital markets. Under reasonable parametrizations of the model, the financial accelerator has a significant influence on business cycle dynamics
What does the Bundesbank target? by Ben Bernanke( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although its primary ultimate objective is price stability, the Bundesbank has drawn a distinction between its money-focus strategy and the inflation targeting approach recently adopted by a number of central banks. We show that, holding constant the current forecast of inflation, German monetary policy responds very little to changes in forecasted money growth; we conclude that the Bundesbank is much better described as an inflation targeter than as a money targeter. An additional contribution of the paper is to apply the structural VAR methods of Bernanke and Mihov (1995) to determine the optimal indicator of German monetary policy: We find that the Lombard rate has historically been a good policy indicator, although the use of the call rate as an indicator cannot be statistically rejected
The liquidity effect and long-run neutrality by Ben Bernanke( Book )

12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: The propositions that monetary expansion lowers short-term nominal interest rates (the liquidity effect), and that monetary policy does not have long-run real effects (long-run neutrality), are widely accepted, yet to date the empirical evidence for both is mixed. We reconsider both propositions simultaneously in a structural VAR context, using a model of the market for bank reserves due to Bernanke and Mihov (forthcoming). We find little basis for rejecting either the liquidity effect or long-run neutrality. Our results are robust over the space of admissible model parameter values, and to the use of long-run rather than short-run identifying restrictions
The courage to act : a memoir of a crisis and its aftermath by Ben Bernanke( Book )

9 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2006, Ben S. Bernanke was appointed chair of the Federal Reserve, capping a meteoric trajectory from a rural South Carolina childhood to professorships at Stanford and Princeton, to public service in Washington's halls of power. There would be no time to celebrate, however -- the burst of the housing bubble in 2007 set off a domino effect that would bring the global financial system to the brink of meltdown. Here, Ben Bernanke pulls back the curtain on the tireless and ultimately successful efforts to prevent a mass economic failure. Working with two U.S. presidents and two Treasury secretaries, Dr. Bernanke and his colleagues used every Fed capability, no matter how arcane, to keep the U.S. economy afloat. From his arrival in Washington in 2002 and his experiences before the crisis, to the intense days and weeks of the crisis itself, and through the Great Recession that followed, Dr. Bernanke gives readers a unique perspective on the American economy
Inside the black box : the credit channel of monetary policy transmission by Ben Bernanke( Book )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: The 'credit channel' theory of monetary policy transmission holds that informational frictions in credit markets worsen during tight- money periods. The resulting increase in the external finance premium--the difference in cost between internal and external funds-- enhances the effects of monetary policy on the real economy. We document the responses of GDP and its components to monetary policy shocks and describe how the credit channel helps explain the facts. We discuss two main components of this mechanism, the balance-sheet channel and the bank lending channel. We argue that forecasting exercises using credit aggregates are not valid tests of this theory
