Econometric modelling of UK aggregate investment : the role of profits and uncertainty by Alan A Carruth( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper focuses on the determinants of aggregate investment spending in the UK for the industrial and commercial company (ICC) sector. It complements recent work by Cuthbertson and Gasparro (1995), who study an augmented Tobin's q model of investment in the manufacturing sector. Important focal points of our analysis are a role for real profits (internal funds), which allow firms to combat liquidity constraints when access to capital markets is not perfect, Chirinko (1987), and the impact of irreversibility and uncertainty in determining aggregate investment spending. Earlier work on manufacturing investment by Bean (1981a) developed a dynamic, error correction specification based on the flexible accelerator model. Following Cuthbertson and Gasparro we use multivariate cointegration techniques to discover a parsimonious dynamic model, which can explain the 1980s and early 1990s investment experience of the ICC sector. Our results show that a model based on investment and output alone does not cointegrate, and a short-run dynamic model of these variables suffers from heteroscedasticity. This may be consistent with the idea that increased (uncontrolled for) uncertainty has led to increased volatility in investment. The possibility that movements in the real price of gold reflect uncertainty in financial and other traded commodity markets is explored. Investigation of this more general model indicates that real profits and the real price of gold can enhance the explanation of investment spending by the ICC sector

Helping the unemployed : active labour market policies in Britain and Germany by Richard Disney( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both Germany and Great Britain have recently experienced increases in unemployment. Both countries have developed substantial labor market programs. Germany offers full-time adult training and retraining courses for employed and unemployed persons. Great Britain has a system of youth training but, until recently, has done little for adults. It has now, however, instituted a large program of part-time employment training for unemployed adults and subsidies to employers providing work experience. Germany has its own recruitment subsidy system that subsidizes 50-70 percent of the wages earned by persons recruited from the ranks of the hard-to-place unemployed. Germany has a job creation scheme for employing mostly long-term unemployed persons with a focus on social service employment, whereas Great Britain abolished its own large-scale job creation program in 1988 and now allocates resources directly to training. Both countries offer free job placement services. In Great Britain, the Restart Programme works to remotivate unemployed persons and pressure them to fill available vacancies. Both countries' employment programs have had degrees of success in reducing unemployment but could be improved by the following: an active system of placement and counseling, a system to recruit hard-to-place workers, and a system of publicly supported temporary work at regular workplaces.
