Growth and productivity in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considering the examples of Australia and the Pacific Rim, Growth and Productivity in East Asia offers a contemporary explanation for national productivity that measures contributions not only from capital and labor, but also from economic activities and relevant changes in policy, education, and technology. Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose have organized a group of collaborators from several Asian countries, the United States, and other parts of the globe who ably balance both macroeconomic and microeconomic study with theoretical and empirical approaches.

Monetary policy with very low inflation in the Pacific Rim by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Extremely low inflation rates have moved to the forefront of monetary policy discussions. In Asia, a number of countries--most prominently Japan, but also Taiwan and China--have actually experienced deflation over the last fifteen years. Monetary Policy with Very Low Inflation in the Pacific Rim explores the factors that have contributed to these circumstances and forecasts some of the potential challenges faced by these nations, as well as some potential solutions. The editors of this volume attribute low inflation and deflation in the region to a number of recent phenomena. Some of these episodes, they argue, may be linked to rapid growth on the supply side of economies. Here, inadequate demand policy can produce what is referred to as a "liquidity trap" in which the expectation of falling prices encourages agents to defer costly purchases, thereby discouraging growth. Low inflation rates can also be traced to the presence of a "zero-lower bound" on interest rates, as well as the inflation-targeting phenomenon. Targets have been set so low, the editors argue, that in some cases a few bad shocks lead to deflation."--Publisher's website
International trade in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( Book )

14 editions published between 1950 and 2007 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'International Trade in East Asia' offers a summary of empirical factors of international trade specifically as they pertain to East Asian countries such as China, Japan, Korea & Taiwan
Fiscal policy and management in East Asia by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managing fiscal policy - the revenues and spending of an individual nation - is among the most challenging tasks facing governments. Wealthy countries are constrained by complex regulation and taxation policies, while developing nations often face high inflation and trade taxes. In this volume, esteemed economists Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose, along with other leading experts, examine the problems and challenges facing public finance in East Asian developing countries as well as the United States and Japan. "Fiscal Policy and Management in East Asia" explores the inefficient tax systems of developing countries, the relationship between public and private sector economic behavior, and the pressing issue of future obligations that governments have undertaken to provide pensions and health care for their citizens. Featuring both overviews and analyses of the countries discussed, this book will be of value to economists and policy makers seeking to understand fiscal policy in a global context
International finance and financial crises : essays in honor of Robert P. Flood, Jr. by Peter Isard( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the proceedings of a conference held in honor of Robert P. Flood Jr. Contributors to the conference were invited to address many of the topics that Robert Flood has explored including regime switching, speculative attacks, bubbles, stock market voloatility, macro models with nominal rigidities, dual exchange rates, target zones, and rules versus discretion in monetary policy. The results, contained in this volume, include five papers on topics in international finance
Financial sector development in the Pacific Rim by East Asian Seminar in Economics( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the institutional factors influencing financial innovation, the consequences of financial development, widespread consolidation occurring through mergers and acquisitions, and the implementation of policy reform.--From publisher description
Commodity prices and markets( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fluctuations of commodity prices, most notably of oil, capture considerable attention and have been tied to important economic effects. This book advances our understanding of the consequences of these fluctuations, providing both general analysis and a particular focus on the countries of the Pacific Rim
The economic consequences of demographic change in East Asia( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume offers comparative analysis from twelve countries and examines the issue of age in the labor force. Contributors analyze the relationship between incentives to retire and the proportion of older persons in the workforce, the effects that reforming social security would have on the employment rates of older workers, and how extending labor force participation will affect program costs. Dispelling the myth that employing older workers takes jobs away from the young, this timely volume challenges existing assumptions about the relationship between old and young people in the workforce
The collector's all-colour guide to toy soldiers : a record of the world's miniature armies, from 1850 to the present day by Andrew Rose( Book )

12 editions published between 1985 and 1990 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contagious currency crises by Barry J Eichengreen( Book )

33 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is concerned with the fact that the incidence of speculative attacks tends to be temporally correlated; that is, currency crises appear to pass contagiously from one country to another. The paper provides a survey of the theoretical literature, and analyzes the contagious nature of currency crises empirically. Using thirty years of panel data from twenty industrialized countries, we find evidence of contagion. Contagion appears to spread more easily to countries which are closely tied by international trade linkages than to countries in similar macroeconomic circumstances
One reason countries pay their debts : renegotiation and international trade by Andrew Rose( Book )

35 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper estimates the effect of sovereign debt renegotiation on international trade. Sovereign default may be associated with a subsequent decline in international trade either because creditors want to deter default by debtors, or because trade finance dries up after default. To estimate the effect, an empirical gravity model of bilateral trade is used, and a large panel data set covering fifty years and more than 200 trading partners. The model controls for a host of factors that influence bilateral trade flows, including the incidence of International Monetary Fund programs. Using the dates of sovereign debt renegotiations conducted through the Paris Club as a proxy measure for sovereign default, it appears that renegotiation is associated with an economically and statistically significant decline in bilateral trade between a debtor and its creditors. The decline in bilateral trade is approximately 8 percent a year and persists for about fifteen years
Noise trading and exchange rate regimes by Olivier Jeanne( Book )

28 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both the literature and new empirical evidence show that exchange rate regimes differ primarily by the noisiness of the exchange rate, not be measurable macroeconomic fundamentals. This motivates a theoretical analysis of exchange rate regimes with noise traders. The presence of noise traders can lead to multiple equilibria in the foreign exchange market. The entry of noise traders both create and share the risk associated with exchange rate volatility. In such circumstances, monetary policy can be used to lower exchange rate volatility without altering macroeconomic fundamentals
Do we really know that the WTO increases trade? by Andrew Rose( Book )

33 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper estimates the effect on international trade of multilateral trade agreements: the World Trade Organization (WTO), its predecessor the Generalized Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), and the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) extended from rich countries to developing countries. I use a standard gravity' model of bilateral merchandise trade and a large panel data set covering over fifty years and 175 countries. An extensive search reveals little evidence that countries joining or belonging to the GATT/WTO have different trade patterns than outsiders. The GSP does seem to have a strong effect, and is associated with an approximate doubling of trade
Contagion and trade : why are currency crises regional? by Reuven Glick( Book )

23 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Currency crises tend to be regional; they affect countries in geographic proximity. This suggests that patterns of international trade are important in understanding how currency crises spread, above and beyond any macroeconomic phenomena. We provide empirical support for this hypothesis. Using data for five different currency crises (in 1971, 1973, 1992, 1994, and 1997) we show that currency crises affect clusters of countries tied together by international trade. By way of contrast, macroeconomic and financial influences are not closely associated with the cross-country incidence of speculative attacks. We also show that trade linkages help explain cross-country correlations in exchange market pressure during crisis episodes, even after controlling for macroeconomic factors
Speculative attacks on pegged exchange rates : an empirical exploration with special reference to the European Monetary System by Barry J Eichengreen( Book )

27 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and French and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents an empirical analysis of speculative attacks on pegged exchange rates in 22 countries between 1967 and 1992. We define speculative attacks or crises as large movements in exchange rates, interest rates, and international reserves. We develop stylized facts concerning the univariate behavior of a variety of macroeconomic variables, comparing crises with periods of tranquility. For ERM observations we cannot reject the null hypothesis that there are few significant differences in the behavior of key macroeconomic variables between crises and non-crisis periods. This null can be decisively rejected for non-ERM observations, however. Precisely the opposite pattern is evident in the behavior of actual realignments and changes in exchange rate regimes. We attempt to tie these findings to the theoretical literature on balance of payments crises
Currency crashes in emerging markets : empirical indicators by Jeffrey A Frankel( Book )

23 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We use a panel of annual data for over one hundred developing countries from 1971 through 1992 to characterize currency crashes. We define a currency crash as a large change of the nominal exchange rate that is also a substantial increase in the rate of change of nominal depreciation. We examine the composition of the debt as well as its level, and a variety of other macroeconomic factors, external and foreign. Crashes tend to occur when: output growth is low; the growth of domestic credit is high; and the level of foreign interest rates is high. A low ratio of FDI to debt is consistently associated with a high likelihood of a crash
The endogeneity of the optimum currency area criteria by Jeffrey A Frankel( Book )

22 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A country's suitability for entry into a currency union depends on a number of economic conditions. These include, inter alia, the intensity of trade with other potential members of the currency union, and the extent to which domestic business cycles are correlated with those of the other countries. But international trade patterns and international business cycle correlations are endogenous. This paper develops and investigates the relationship between the two phenomena. Using thirty years of data for twenty industrialized countries, we uncover a strong and striking empirical finding: countries with closer trade links tend to have more tightly correlated business cycles. It follows that countries are more likely to satisfy the criteria for entry into a currency union after taking steps toward economic integration than before
A panel project on purchasing power parity : mean reversion within and between countries by Jeffrey A Frankel( Book )

23 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous time-series studies have shown evidence of mean- reversion in real exchange rates. Deviations from purchasing power parity (PPP) appear to have half-lives of approximately four years. However, the long samples required for statistical significance are unavailable for most currencies, and may be inappropriate because of regime changes. In this study, we re-examine deviations from PPP using a panel of 150 countries and 45 annual observations. Our panel shows strong evidence of mean-reversion that is similar to that from long time-series. PPP deviations are eroded at a rate of approximately 15% annually, i.e., their half-life is around four years. Such findings can be masked in time-series data, but are relatively easy to find in cross-sections
Financial integration : a new methodology and an illustration by Robert P Flood( Book )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper develops a simple methodology to test for asset integration, and applies it within and between American stock markets. Our technique relies on estimating and comparing expected risk-free rates across assets. Expected risk-free rates are allowed to vary freely over time, constrained only by the fact that they must be equal across (risk-adjusted) assets in well integrated markets. Assets are allowed to have standard risk characteristics, and are constrained by a factor model of covariances over short time periods. We find that implied expected risk-free rates vary dramatically over time, unlike short interest rates. Further, internal integration in the S&P 500 market is never rejected and is generally not rejected in the NASDAQ. Integration between the NASDAQ and the S&P, however, is always rejected dramatically
