Privatizing social security by Martin S Feldstein( )

24 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 2,202 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
Behavioral simulation methods in tax policy analysis by Martin S Feldstein( )

21 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,939 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
Economic and financial crises in emerging market economies by Martin S Feldstein( )

28 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,908 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

This volume brings together nontechnical essays on these issues by economists associated with the NBER and personal statements by leaders of America's major national art muse

The costs and benefits of price stability by Martin S Feldstein( )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 1,774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the Federal Reserve and central banks worldwide have enjoyed remarkable success in their battle against inflation. The challenge now confronting the Fed and its counterparts is how to proceed in this newly benign economic environment: Should monetary policy seek to maintain a rate of low-level inflation or eliminate inflation altogether in an effort to attain full price stability? In a seminal article published in 1997, Martin Feldstein developed a framework for calculating the gains in economic welfare that might result from a move from a low level of inflation to full price

Risk aspects of investment-based social security reform( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,619 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

As a group, the papers demonstrate that international tax rules have significant effects on firms' investment and other financing decisions.

Empirical foundations of household taxation by Martin S Feldstein( )

16 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historically, tax policy debates - and reforms - have depended heavily on estimates of how alternative tax rules would affect household and firm behavior. Research showing that capital gains realizations were very sensitive to capital gains tax rates played an important role in the 1978 capital gains tax reform. The 1981 Economic Recovery Tax Act was bolstered by studies suggesting that reductions in marginal tax rates would increase household labor supply and saving. In the early 1990s, federal tax policy debates focused on how raising marginal tax rates would affect household behavior and reported taxable income
