Fiscal policies and the world economy : an intertemporal approach by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )

69 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the effects of fiscal policies on the evolution of real rates of interest and real exchange rates in the interdependent world economy. We construct an analytical framework suitable for a detailed examination of the various channels through which these variables are influenced by government spending and by tax policies. The analytical framework employs a general equilibrium approach highlighting the roles played by wealth effects and by temporal and intertemporal substitution effects. The general principle illustrated by the analysis of the dynamic effects of budget deficits is that the consequences of temporary tax policies stretch beyond the period during which the temporary policies are in effect. The counterpart to these dynamic implications is the rise in the economy's external debt induced by the budget deficit the service of which stretches into the indefinite future. By series of examples, allowing for both distortionary and non-distortionary taxes and for various patterns of government spending, it is shown that the quantitative and qualitative effects of fiscal policies on real exchange rates, real interest rates, debt accumulation and the like depend critically on the commodity composition of government spending and its intertemporal allocations on the one hand, and on the details of government debt issue and tax structure, including the timing of taxes and borrowing and the types of taxes used to finance the budget, on the other hand
The Monetary approach to the balance of payments by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )

42 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book collects together the basic documents of an approach to the theory and policy of the balance of payments developed in the 1970s. The approach marked a return to the historical traditions of international monetary theory after some thirty years of departure from them - a departure occasioned by the international collapse of the 1930s, the Keynesian Revolution and a long period of war and post-war reconstruction in which the international monetary system was fragmented by exchange controls, currency inconvertibility and controls over international trade and capital movements

This volume brings together nine papers from a conference on international macroeconomics sponsored by the NBER in 1985. International economists as well as graduate students in the fields of global monetary economics, finance, and macroeconomics will find this an outstanding contribution to current research. It includes two commentaries for each paper, written by experts in the field, and Frenkel's detailed introduction, which serves as a reader's guide to the arguments made, the models employed, and the issues raised by each contributor. The studies analyze national fiscal policies within th
The Economics of exchange rates : selected studies by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )

23 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The studies deal with the determination of foreign exchange rates and the characteristics of the foreign exchange market. They extend frontiers in theory and test the implications against current and past data. Analysis is made of flexible exchange rates through a new approach the authors have developed, called the "asset-market approach." In a fresh departure from the bulk of economic literature, theory is combined with practical application in a clear, concise way that will be understood by readers with a basic understanding of economics. The first three chapters of the book present the doctrinal history leading to today's view of exchange rate deterioration, outline the authors' new approach, and integrate it with an anlaysis of macroeconomic policies. The remaining eight chapters examine in detail (theoretically and empirically) the various building blocks presented in the initial chapters

International coordination of economic policies : scope, methods, and effects by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )

61 editions published between 1984 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper highlights key macroeconomic issues related to VAT harmonization. A model is developed which emphasizes the effects of changes in the profile of various taxes on international behavior. Dynamic simulations reveal that the macroeconomic and welfare implications of VAT harmonization, including conflicts of interest, depend critically on the tax system and the degree of subsitution governing temporal and intertemporal allocations. We also demonstrate that the effects of revenue-neutral tax conversions between income and consumption tax systems undertaken by a single country depend critically on international differences in behavior

International spillovers of taxation by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper highlights key issues pertinent for the understanding of international effects of domestic tax policies and of international tax harmonization. The analytical framework adopts the saving-investment balance approach to the analysis of international economic interdependence focusing on income, consumption, and international borrowing. A simulation model is developed that is richer in structure than the two period analytical model
The international transmission of fiscal expenditures and budget deficits in the world economy by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper deals with the international transmission of the effects of budget deficits on world rates of interest and spending. The model assumes a two-country world within which capital markets are integrated, individuals behave rationally, and the behavior of individuals and governments are governed by temporal and intertemporal budget constraints. Adopting Olivier Blanchard's formulation it is assumed that due to the probability of finite life individuals behave as if their horizon was finite. This formulation generates asimple pattern of aggregate behavior of the two-country world, and it assures that the model is not subject to the Ricardian proposition according to which budget deficits do not matter. It is shown that, for a given time path of government spending, a budget deficit raises world rates of interest and domestic wealth while it lowers foreign wealth. Thus, the deficit is transmitted negatively to the rest of the world. The channel of transmission is the world capital market and the negative transmission results from the higher rate of interest. The paper proceeds with an analysis of balanced-budget changes in government spending. It is shown that a transitory current rise in government spending raises interest rates and lowers domestic and foreign wealth while an expected future rise in government spending lowers interest rates, reduces the value of domestic wealth and raises the value of foreign wealth. The effect of a permanent rise in government spending on the rate of interest depends on whether the domestic economy is a net saver or dissaver in the world economy, i.e., if it has acurrent account surplus or deficit. If the home country runs a current account surplus then a rise in government spending raises world interest rates and lowers domestic and foreign wealth, and if the home country runs a current account deficit then a permanent balanced-budget rise in government spending lowers interest rates and domestic wealth and raises foreign wealth
