Northern star : Canada's path to economic prosperity ( Book )
7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 197 libraries worldwide
Robust GDP growth, declining unemployment, low and stable inflation, and a string of fiscal and current account surpluses: these outcomes in Canada owe much to sound macroeconomic policies, as well as to a favorable external environment. This book focuses on these policies and the economy's salient features, including its close trade integration with the United States, large commodity sector, and substantial decentralization and regional diversity. It outlines what is unique about the Canadian experience and sheds light on policies and philosophies that can be applied in other economies.--Publisher's description.
Post-bubble blues : how Japan responded to asset price collapse ( Book )

Structural change in Japan : macroeconomic impact and policy challenges ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
This volume is based on a seminar on structural change in Japan held in early 1997 and chaired by the IMF's First Deputy Managing Director, Stanley Fischer. The seminar provided a forum for the IMF staff to discuss their views on the Japanese economy with a distinguished list of outside experts. Discussion of the day-to-day management of the standard levers of fiscal and monetary policy is interlinked with consideration for the more deep-seated structural issues.

Spillovers across NAFTA by A Swiston ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 104 libraries worldwide
This paper examines linkages across North America by estimating the size of spillovers from the major regions of the world-- the United States, Euro area, Japan, and the rest of the world-- to Canada and Mexico, and decomposing the impact of these spillovers into trade, commodity price, and financial market channels. For Canada, a one percent shock to U.S. real GDP shifts Canadian real GDP by some 3/4 of a percentage point in the same direction-- with financial spillovers more important than trade in recent decades. Thus, a large proportion of the reduction in Canadian output volatility since the 1980s can be accounted for by the 'Great Moderation' in U.S. growth. Before 1996, domestic volatility in Mexico swamped the contribution of external factors to the business cycle. After 1996, the response of Mexican GDP is 1 1/2 times the size of the U.S. shock-- "when the U.S. sneezes, Mexico catches a cold". These spillovers are transmitted through both trade and financial channels.

Benefits and spillovers of greater competition in Europe : a macroeconomic assessment by Tamim A Bayoumi ( Book )
14 editions published in 2004 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 84 libraries worldwide
"Using a general-equilibrium simulation model featuring nominal rigidities and monopolistic competition in product and labor markets, this paper estimates the macroeconomic benefits and international spillovers of an increase in competition. After calibrating the model to the euro area vs. the rest of the industrial world, the paper draws three conclusions. First, greater competition produces large effects on macroeconomic performance, as measured by standard indicators. In particular, we show that differences in competition can account for over half of the current gap in GDP per capita between the euro area and the US. Second, it may improve macroeconomic management by increasing the responsiveness of wages and prices to market conditions. Third, greater competition can generate positive spillovers to the rest of the world through its impact on the terms of trade"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site.

Shocking aspects of Canadian labor markets by Tamim Bayoumi ( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 70 libraries worldwide
Analyzes the flexibility of the Canadian labor market across provinces in both an inter- and intra-national context using macroeconomic data on employment, unemployment, participation, and (for Canada) migration and real wages. Finds that Canadian labor markets respond in a similar manner to their U.S. counterparts and are more flexible than those in major euro area countries. Within Canada, the results indicate that labor markets in Ontario and provinces further west are more flexible, particularly with regard to migration, while those further east are less so.
Energy, the exchange rate, and the economy macroeconomic benefits of Canada's oil sands production by Tamim Bayoumi ( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
This paper describes potential benefits from Canada's expanding oil sands production, higher energy exports, and further improvements in the terms of trade. Contrary to the previous Canadian exchange rate literature, this paper finds that both energy and nonenergy commodity prices have an influence on the Canadian dollar, and some upward pressure on the exchange rate would therefore be expected. Model results suggest, however, that the impact on other tradable goods exports is limited.
Mr Ricardo's great adventure estimating fiscal multipliers in a truly intertemporal model by Tamim A Bayoumi ( Book )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 64 libraries worldwide
We estimate tax multipliers in a "Blanchard-Yaari" consumption model where Ricardian equivalence is broken because the private sector discounts the future at a faster rate than the real rate of interest. The model fits U.S. data since 1955 extremely well-entailing a discount wedge of around 20 percent a year and fiscal multipliers of 0.15-0.4-depending on the permanence of the change in taxes/transfers, and is much superior to one that assumes some consumers are fully Ricardian and others follow simple rules of thumb. The implied high private sector rate of discount has wide implications for policymakers.
