The economy of Puerto Rico : restoring growth by Susan M Collins( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a territory of the United States, Puerto Rico operates under U.S. judicial, monetary, and tariff systems. Despite sharing these key U.S. institutions, however, the region's economy has stalled. Since the 1970s, the island has experienced economic stagnation, large scale unemployment, and a widening income gap relative to the mainland. Here, economists from Puerto Rico and the United States address the major policy issues-labor supply and demand, entrepreneurship, the fiscal situation, financial markets, and trade-at the heart of Puerto Rico's economic difficulties." "While many studies have analyzed the implications of Puerto Rico's political relationship with the United States, The Economy of Puerto Rico focuses on the island's economic development. The contributors to this innovative book assess Puerto Rico's past experience with various growth policies. They analyze reforms and new initiatives for increasing employment, encouraging private sector development, improving education, upgrading infrastructure, and fixing government finance. They conclude by presenting policy recommendations and proposing a strategy to jump-start economic growth in Puerto Rico. Book jacket."--Jacket

Developing country debt and economic performance by Jeffrey D Sachs( )

16 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For dozens of developing countries, the financial upheavals of the 1980s have set back economic development by a decade or more. Poverty in those countries has intensified as they struggle under the burden of an enormous external debt. In 1988, more than six years after the onset of the crisis, almost all the debtor countries were still unable to borrow in the international capital markets on normal terms. Moreover, the world financial system has been disrupted by the prospect of widespread defaults on those debts. Because of the urgency of the present crisis, and because similar crises have r

Real exchange rate misalignments and growth by Ofair Razin( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Real exchange rate (RER) misalignment is now a standard concept in international macroeconomic theory and policy. However, there is neither a consensus indicator of misalignment, nor an agreed upon methodology for constructing such an indicator. This paper constructs an indicator of RER misalignment for a large sample of developed and developing countries. This indicator is based on a well-structured but simple extension of an IS-LM model of an open economy. The paper then uses regression analysis to explore whether RER misalignments are related to country growth experiences. Interestingly the work finds that there are important non-linearities in the relationship. Only very high over-valuations" appear to be associated with slower economic growth, while moderate to high (but not very high) under-valuations appear to be associated with more rapid economic growth
The expected timing of EMS realignments : 1979-83 by Susan Margaret Collins( )

12 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper develops and estimates a model of the time at which market participants expected the French franc to be devalued relative to the German deutschemark during the early years of the European Monetary System. The model assumes that the expected time of exchange rate realignment is determined by the time at which foreign exchange reserves in the Banque de France first fall below a critical threshold level, and that reserves are a Brownian motion process with a drift that depends on current economic conditions. Thus, the probability distribution for the time of the next realignment is an Inverse Gaussian distribution. The empirical analysis uses the term structure of forward exchange rate premia to form indicators of perceived probabilities of realignment over various time horizons. The model fits quite well, especially prior to the March 1983 realignment. The estimation suggests that the expected timing of realignments was quite sensitive to the level of reserves in France and to factors that affect the mean rate of change of reserves
Attitudes towards inflation and the viability of fixed exchange rates : evidence from the EMS by Susan Margaret Collins( )

15 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History provides us with many examples of multiple country fixed exchange rate regimes that have eventually fallen apart. In light of these failures, why has the EMS been so successful in stabilizing exchange rates among members, and in expanding its membership? This paper argues that one key aspect of the explanation lies in a convergence in attitudes toward inflation and unemployment among EMS members since the late 1970s. This paper presents new empirical evidence for this convergence using household survey data for eight European countries during 1974-90. We find evidence that initially high inflation countries -- France and Italy -- have experienced a decrease in tolerance for inflation relative to unemployment. Germany and other low inflation countries, in contrast, appear to have experienced a decrease in tolerance for unemployment. The paper also contains a theoretical section that illustrates why shifts in attitudes of voters within a given country might lead that country to join a fixed exchange rate regime
Returns on FDI : does the U.S. really do better? by Barry Bosworth( )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the U.S. external accounts, U.S. investors earn a significantly higher rate of return on their foreign investments than foreigners earn in the United States. This continued strong performance has produced a positive net investment income balance despite the deterioration in the U.S. net asset position in recent years. We examine the major competing explanations for the apparent differential between the rates of return. In particular, almost the entire difference occurs in FDI, where American firms operating abroad appear to earn a persistently higher return than that earned by foreign firms operating in the U.S. We first review a number of explanations in the literature for this differential. We then offer some new evidence on the role of income shifting between jurisdictions with varying rates of taxation. Using country-specific income and tax data, we find that about one-third of the excess return earned by U.S. corporations abroad can be explained by firms reporting "extra" income in low tax jurisdictions of their affiliates
South Korea's experience with external debt by Susan Margaret Collins( )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines South Korea's macroeconomic performance and experience with external debt during 1960-1986. Most of Korea's debt was accumulated during three periods: 1966-69, 1974-75 and 1979-81. Each involved an initial phase of economic difficulty and an slow-down in growth, followed by an impressive recovery. The paper reviews the economic and political developments during each cycle in some detail. Of particular interest are the shifts in economic policy as domestic authorities responded to external and internal developments. The paper is part of a larger study of the Korean experience
Accounting for growth : comparing China and India by Barry Bosworth( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We compare the recent economic performances of China and India using a simple growth accounting framework that produces estimates of the contribution of labor, capital, education, and total factor productivity for the three sectors of agriculture, industry, and services as well as for the aggregate economy. Our analysis incorporates recent data revisions in both countries and includes extensive discussion of the underlying data series. The growth accounts show a roughly equal division in each country between the contributions of capital accumulation and TFP to growth in output per worker over the period 1978-2004, and an acceleration of growth when the period is divided at 1993. However, the magnitude of output growth in China is roughly double that of India at the aggregate level, and also higher in each of the three sectors in both sub-periods. In China the post-1993 acceleration was concentrated mostly in industry, which contributed nearly 60 percent of China & rsquo;s aggregate productivity growth. In contrast, 45 percent of the growth in India in the second sub-period came in services. Reallocation of workers from agriculture to industry and services has contributed 1.2 percentage points to productivity growth in each country
External debt and macroeconomic performance in South Korea by Susan Margaret Collins( )

10 editions published in 1988 in English and German and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During 1980-1986, South Korea went from being the world's fourth largest debtor country, in the midst of an economic crisis, to a model of successful adjustment, with high growth rates and a current account surplus. This paper summarizes the findings of an in depth analysis of Korea's performance, focusing on the experience with external debt. We argue that the explanations for Korea's recovery are closely linked to the explanations for Korea's very rapid growth during the 1960s and 1970s. The centerpieces have been a comprehensive export focused investment plan with external borrowing wed to supplement domestic savings in financing the investment and an active, interventionist government policy
