Privatizing social security by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

37 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aging of the population will raise the cost of maintaining the existing pay-as-you-go tax financed system of social security pensions. Government actuaries estimate that the payroll tax rate would have to rise to more than 18 percent to maintain the current relation between benefits and lifetime earnings. To avoid such cost increases, the United States is now considering following the lead of other countries that have shifted from the pay-as-you-go method of financing pensions to systems based on mandatory saving during the working years. This book will be of interest to government policy makers and private pension experts, in addition to economists
American economic policy in the 1980s by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The policy changes he introduced included reallocation of public spending and serious reforms in the tax system. Taxes were lowered and inflation was brought down, but the changes also produced a spiraling government debt. The sharpest post-World War II recession preceded nearly eight years of strong economic growth
The Effects of taxation on capital accumulation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

18 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on capital formation has long been a major focus of studies sponsored by the National Bureau of Economic Research because of the crucial role of capital accumulation in the process of economic growth.

Behavioral simulation methods in tax policy analysis by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

19 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 572 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These thirteen papers and accompanying commentaries are the first fruits of an ongoing research project that has concentrated on developing simulation models that incorporate the behavioral responses of individuals and businesses to alternative tax rules and rates and on expanding computational general equilibrium models that analyze the long-run effects of changes on the economy as a whole. The principal focus of the project has been on the microsimulation of individual behavior. Thus, this volume includes studies of individual responses to an over reduction in tax rates and to changes in the
Taxes and capital formation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economists have long recognized the importance of capital accumulation for productivity and economic growth. The National Bureau of Economic Research is currently engaged in a study of the relationship between such accumulation and taxation policies, with particular focus on saving, risk-taking, and corporate investment in the United States and abroad. The papers presented in Taxes and Capital Formation are accessible, nontechnical summaries of fourteen individual research projects within that study. Complete technical reports on this research are published in a separate volume, The Effects of
International capital flows by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

39 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By focusing on capital flows' productivity and determinants, and the policy issues they raise, this collection is a valuable resource for economists, policymakers, and financial market participants."--Jacket
The costs and benefits of price stability by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

34 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper evaluates the welfare gain from achieving price stability and compares it to the cost of the transition. In calculating the gain from price stability, the paper emphasizes the distortions caused by the interaction of inflation and capital income taxes. Because inflation exacerbates the tax distortions that would exist even with price stability, the annual deadweight loss of a two percent inflation rate is a surprisingly large one percent of GDP. Since the real gain from shifting to price stability grows in perpetuity at the rate of growth of GDP, its present value is a substantial multiple of this annual gain. Discounting the annual gains at the rate that investors require for risky equity investments (i.e., at the 5.1 percent real net-of-tax rate of return on the Standard and Poors portfolio of equities from 1970 to 1994) implies a present value gain equal to more than 35 percent of the initial level of GDP. Since the estimated cost of shifting from two percent inflation to price stability is about five percent of GDP, the gain substantially outweighs the cost of transition
Economic and financial crises in emerging market economies by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following each paper, personal statements from the major players give firsthand accounts of what really went on behind the scenes during the crises, giving us a rare glimpse into how international economic policy decisions are actually made. Finally, wide-ranging discussions and debates sparked by these papers and statements are summarized at the end of each section. The result is an indispensable overview of the key issues at work in these crises, written by the people who move markets and reshape economies, and accessible not just to economists and policymakers but also to educated general readers."--Jacket
The effects of taxation on multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the effect of tax policy on international investment choices by presenting in-depth analyses of the interaction of international tax rules and the investment decisions of multinational enterprises. Ten papers assess the role of investment by multinational firms in the U.S. economy and the design of international tax rules for multinational investment; analyze channels through which international tax rules affect the costs of international business activities; and examine ways in which international tax rules affect financing decisions of multinational firms. As a group, the papers demonstrate that international tax rules have significant effects on firms' investment and other financing decisions. This state-of-the-art volume will be of interest to researchers in public finance and international economics and to policymakers concerned with tax policy and international investment issues
Risk aspects of investment-based social security reform( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our current social security system operates on a pay-as-you-go basis; benefits are paid almost entirely out of current revenues. As the ratio of retirees to taxpayers increases, concern about the high costs of providing benefits in a pay-as-you-go system has led economists to explore other options. One involves "prefunding," in which a person's withholdings are invested in financial instruments, such as stocks and bonds, the eventual returns from which would fund his or her retirement. The risks such a system would introduce--such as the volatility in the market prices of investment assets--are the focus of this offering from the NBER. Exploring the issues involved in measuring risk and developing models to reflect the risks of various investment-based systems, economists evaluate the magnitude of the risks that both retirees and taxpayers would assume. The insights that emerge show that the risk is actually moderate relative to the improved return, as well as being balanced by the ability of an investment-based system to adapt to differences in individual preferences and conditions
Taxing multinational corporations by M. P Devereux( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 334 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the increasingly global business environment of the 1990s, policymakers and executives of multinational corporations must make informed decisions based on a sound knowledge of U.S. and foreign tax policy. Written for a nontechnical audience, Taxing Multinational Corporations summarizes up-to-the-minute research on the structure and effects of tax policies. The book covers such practical issues as the impact of tax law on U.S. competitiveness, the volume and location of research and development spending, the extent of foreign direct investment, and the financial practices of multinational companies. In ten succinct chapters, the book documents the channels through which tax policy in the United States and abroad affects plant and equipment investments, spending on research and development, the cost of debt and equity finance, and dividend repatriations by United States subsidiaries. It also discusses the impact of U.S. firms' outbound foreign investment on domestic and foreign economies. Especially useful to non-specialists is an appendix that summarizes current United States rules for taxing international income. The findings of this volume will be of immediate value to executives, lawyers, accountants, and all who seek a concise, thorough overview of international taxation. It is also of long-term value to scholars and policymakers as they debate reforms of international tax rules in the United States and elsewhere
The distributional aspects of social security and social security reform by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

Empirical foundations of household taxation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite decades of interest by scholars and policy makers in the effect of tax policy on household behavior, there is still considerable controversy about the key empirical links among tax rates, household behavior, and revenue collections. The eight papers in this volume present new statistical findings on how taxes affect a range of household decisions, including labor supply, saving, choice of health insurance plan, choice of child care arrangements, portfolio choice, and tax evasion. They also present new analytical results on the effects of different types of tax policy. All of this research relies on household-level data - drawn either from public-use tax return files provided by the U.S. Treasury or from large household-level surveys - to explore various aspects of the relationship between taxes and household behavior
