Models of business cycles by
Robert E Lucas(
Book
)
26 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the past decade macroeconomic theory has undergone a remarkable transformation. At the forefront has been the "rational expectations revolution," and this school's most brilliant exponent is Robert E. Lucas. In this elegant and relatively nontechnical survey, Lucas reviews the nature and consequences of recent developments in monetary and business cycle theory. He discusses the usefulness of alternative models in determining the effects of economic policy on consumption streams and individual welfare. Drawing on a specific model of aggregate activity which represents the current frontier in business cycle research, he then examines the contemporary theory of unemployment. Finally and most controversially, he explores the role of monetary disturbances."Back Cover

Real effects of monetary shocks in an economy with sequential purchases by
Robert E Lucas(
Book
)
10 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We study the effects of monetary disturbances in an economy in which sellers must deal with potential buyers in sequence, rather than being able to sell their goods in a Walrasian auction market. Because of the structure of trading assumed, the current state of demand is not revealed to sellers until after the process of sequential transactions has concluded. As a consequence, unanticipated changes in nominal spending flows induce lessthanproportional responses in nominal transaction prices, and changes in the same direction in real output. These effects are similar to those obtained if sellers must commit themselves in advance to money prices, but do not depend upon any cost of changing prices. We fully characterize the stationary intertemporal equilibrium of an economy subject to i.i.d. money supply shocks. We show how the ex ante distribution of monetary shocks affects sellers' pricing strategies, and hence the equilibrium relation between the money supply, the distribution of transaction prices, and the degree to which available productive capacity is utilized

Menu costs and Phillips curves by
Mikhail Golosov(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper develops a model of a monetary economy in which individual firms are subject to idiosyncratic productivity shocks as well as general inflation. Sellers can change price only by incurring a real menu cost.' We calibrate this cost and the variance and autocorrelation of the idiosyncratic shock using a new U.S. data set of individual prices due to Klenow and Kryvtsov. The prediction of the calibrated model for the effects of high inflation on the frequency of price changes accords well with the Israeli evidence obtained by Lach and Tsiddon. The model is also used to conduct numerical experiments on the economy's response to credible and incredible disinflations and other shocks. In none of the simulations we conducted did monetary shocks induce large or persistent real responses

General equilibrium analysis of the EatonKortum model of international trade by
Fernando Alvarez(
Book
)
10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We study a variation of the EatonKortum model, a competitive, constantreturnstoscale multicountry Ricardian model of trade. We establish existence and uniqueness of an equilibrium with balanced trade where each country imposes an import tariff. We analyze the determinants of the crosscountry distribution of trade volumes, such as size, tariffs and distance, and compare a calibrated version of the model with data for the largest 60 economies. We use the calibrated model to estimate the gains of a worldwide trade elimination of tariffs, using the theory to explain the magnitude of the gains as well as the differential effect arising from crosscountry differences in preliberalization of tariffs levels and country size

Trade and the diffusion of the industrial revolution by
Robert E Lucas(
Book
)
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A model is proposed to describe the evolution of real GDPs in the world economy that is intended to apply to all open economies. The five parameters of the model are calibrated using the SachsWarner definition of openness and timeseries and crosssection data on incomes and other variables from the 19th and 20th centuries. The model predicts convergence of income levels and growth rates and has strong but reasonable implications for transition dynamics

Money and interest in a cashinadvance economy by
Robert E Lucas(
Book
)
7 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper we analyze an aggregative general equilibrimi model in which the use of money is motivated by a cashinadvance constraint, applied to purchases of a subset of consumption goods. The system is subject to both real and monetary shocks, which are economywide and observed by all. We develop methods for verifying the existence of, characterizing, and explicitly calculating equilibria. A main result of the analysis is that current money growth affects the current real allocation only insofar as it affects expectations about future money growth, i.e., only through its value as a signal

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper introduces and partially develops a new model of endogenous technological change, viewed as the product of a class of problemsolving producers. The model, based on earlier work by Eaton and Kortum, is built up from the premise that all knowledge resides in the head of some individual person and the knowledge of a firm, or economy, or any group of people is simply the knowledge of the individuals that comprise it. The model is applied to an economy with a cohort structure. A calibration the model using crosssection earnings data, in addition to aggregate GDP growth, is considered

Financial innovation and the control of monetary aggregates : some evidence from Canada by
Robert E Lucas(
Book
)
5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper presents an empirical test of the proposition that control of a monetary aggregate will generate a rise in its velocity.The test is carried out utilizing the Canadian experience of controlling Ml growth from 1975:3 to 1982:3. Section One of the paper presents evidence of the instability of the Canadian demand from Ml money since 1975:3. Section Two develops a specific form of the proposition which emphasizes the role of asset substitution between classes of chartered bank deposits. A relative asset demand equation is derived from a wealth maximization model subject to a technological transactions constraint and this equation is estimated from 1961 through 1982.The results lend support to the proposition that central bank control of Ml generated a rise in Ml velocity

Collected papers on monetary theory by
Robert E Lucas(
Book
)
6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Main description: Robert Lucas is one of the outstanding monetary theorists of the past hundred years. Along with Knut Wicksell, Irving Fisher, John Maynard Keynes, James Tobin, and Milton Friedman (his teacher), Lucas revolutionized our understanding of how money interacts with the real economy of production, consumption, and exchange. Lucas's contributions are both methodological and substantive. Methodologically, he developed dynamic, stochastic, general equilibrium models to analyze economic decisionmakers operating through time in a complex, probabilistic environment. Substantively, he incorporated the quantity theory of money into these models and derived its implications for money growth, inflation, and interest rates in the long run. He also showed the different effects of anticipated and unanticipated changes in the stock of money on economic fluctuations, and helped to demonstrate that there was not a longrun tradeoff between unemployment and inflation (the Phillips curve) that policymakers could exploit. The twentyone papers collected in this volume fall primarily into three categories: core monetary theory and public finance, asset pricing, and the real effects of monetary instability. Published between 1972 and 2007, they will inspire students and researchers who want to study the work of a master of economic modeling and to advance economics as a pure and applied science
