The new monetary policy : implications and relevance by Philip Arestis( )

19 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with an assessment of new thinking in macroeconomics and monetary theory, this book suggests that many countries have adopted the New Consensus Monetary Policy since the early 1990s in an attempt to reduce inflation to low levels. It goes on to illustrate that the explicit control of the money supply, which was fashionable in the 1970s and 1980s in the UK, US, Europe and elsewhere, was abandoned in favour of monetary rules that focus on interest rate manipulation by the central bank. The objective of these rules is to achieve specific, or a range of, inflation targets.--

Why are some countries richer than others? : a reassessment of Mankiw-Romer-Weil's test of the neoclassical growth model by Jesus Felipe( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper provides evidence of a problem with the influential testing and assessment of Solow's (1956) growth model proposed by Mankiw et al. (1992) and a series of subsequent papers evaluating the latter. First, the assumption of a common rate of technical progress maintained by Mankiw et al. (1992) is relaxed. Solow's model is extended to include the different levels and rates of technical progress of each country. This increases the explanatory power of the cross-country variation in income per capita of the OECD countries to over 80 percent. The estimates of the parameters are statistically significant and take the expected values and signs. Second, and more important, it is shown that the estimates merely reflect a statistical artifact. This has serious implications for the possibility of actually testing Solow's growth model."

What global economic crisis?( )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics has become an excessively esoteric discipline. Opportunities to bridge the gap between theorizing and policymaking are becoming increasingly limited. One issue of great importance to modern policymakers is the relationship between globalization and economic crisis. With unprecedented trends towards globalization (in part propelled by developments in information technology), the repercussions of economic crisis are more profound than ever before, particularly for developing countries. What Global Economic Crisis? bridges the gap between theory and policy by examining the destabilising effects of financial crises on economic growth, stability and development. It also presents some innovative ideas intended to inform the design of institutions able to foster more effective international policy coordination

Missing links in the unemployment relationship( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unemployment has been somewhat neglected within the world of economics in recent years. Primarily, this is because the subject has become of less of an issue for many countries. However, even within the EU, several regions still suffer from worrying levels of people out of work. Europe has experienced significant fluctuations in unemployment levels since the Second World War, and there have been many attempts at analysing the problem and confronting the related issues. This book explores the subject of unemployment in detail, analysing past successes and failures in the area, and offering lessons and proposals for the future. Focusing on the EU, but with coverage of several regions worldwide, this book brings together a wide range of experts to examine the experiences and approaches of a variety of countries to this issue of employment, and provides an overview of unemployment and its economic implications which will be invaluable to all scholars and policymakers interested in this key area
