"In recognizing that our bodies have a remarkable power to heal their wounds and fight off disease, Mark Twain once quipped that "Nature heals and the doctor sends the bill." Perhaps this fundamental truth has been too long ignored by Western medicine in its preoccupation with physical cures." "Throughout history, cultures worldwide have provided us with incontrovertible evidence that under certain circumstances the body heals itself without intervention and that the mind has great influence over the body's health. In thoroughly examining this evidence, The Heart of Healing delves into various cultures to reveal the long and successful association that healing has had with faith, belief, spirit, family support, the web of everyday life, and even altered states of consciousness. It offers as further evidence cases of spontaneous remission from cancer and other diseases that have been documented in both oral and written histories throughout the centuries. During the last several decades, many researchers have clearly demonstrated that our feelings and attitudes can, in fact, push us toward either health or illness." "Although many Western-trained physicians have been skeptical about the role of the mind in medicine, this skepticism is gradually eroding in the face of overwhelming evidence. Scientists have already discovered definite links between the mind and the central and autonomic nervous systems, the endocrine system, and the immune system. Indeed, researchers in several fields have proposed that our psychological characteristics ultimately affect our immunological defenses, and through them our basic health." "Experiments have revealed that hypnotic suggestion can hasten burn healing, for example, and that laughter can increase immune function - all indicating that something is going on, that feelings and emotions do influence health, and that the body's healing system may be far more powerful and complex than we have yet dared to imagine. The real message of The Heart of Healing is that we must rethink and re-establish our medical system to assign wider parameters to all the arts of healing - in recognition that the connection between our minds and our bodies affects our health."--Jacket

Monetary policy lessons of recent inflation and disinflation by William Poole( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The decline of velocity in the 1980s is a surprise that should not have been. Economists unwisely relied on a velocity trend of 3 percent per year when they should have insisted on an economic explanation for rising velocity. An analysis of velocity and interest rates from 1915 to 1986 suggests that the interest elasticity of money demand is substantially higher than previously thought. The postwar increase of rates followed by a major decline of rates in the 1980s explains velocity behavior. The large decline in velocity almost certainly would have caused severe economic problems had the Federal Reserve not accommodated the decline through more rapid money growth. Federal Reserve policy between October 1979 and October 1982 emphasized control of money growth. Money market behavior during this period, compared to periods before and after, provides strong evidence that the market sets interest rates on the basis of a sophisticated understanding of monetary policy. The evidence makes clear that the monetary authorities cannot use interest rates to provide information on the state of the economy unless they know the extent to which interest rates reflect expectations of future monetary policy

The Great Inflation : did the Shadow know better? by William Poole( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Shadow Open Market Committee was formed in 1973 in response to rising inflation and the apparent unwillingness of U.S. policymakers to implement policies necessary to maintain price stability. This paper describes how the Committee's policy views differed from those of most Federal Reserve officials and many academic economists at the time. The Shadow argued that price stability should be the primary goal of monetary policy and favored gradual adjustment of monetary growth to a rate consistent with price stability. This paper evaluates the Shadow's policy rule in the context of the New Keynesian macroeconomic model of Clarida, Gali, and Gertler (1999). Simulations of the model suggest that the gradual stabilization of monetary growth favored by the Shadow would have lowered inflation with less impact on output growth and less variability in inflation or output than a one-time reduction in monetary growth. We conclude that the Shadow articulated a policy that would have outperformed the policies actually implemented by the Federal Reserve during the Great Inflation era
