International policy coordination and exchange rate fluctuations by William H Branson ( Book )
11 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the five largest industrial democracies concluded the Plaza Agreement in 1985, the theory and practice of international economic policy coordination has become the subject of spirited academic and public-policy debate. While some view policy coordination as crucial for the construction of an improved international monetary system, others fear that it risks delaying or weakening the implementation of macroeconomic and structural policies. In these papers and comments, prominent international economists consider past and present interpretations of the meaning of international policy coordination; conditions necessary for coordination to be beneficial both to the direct participants and the global economy; influential factors for the quantitative impact of coordination; obstacles to coordination; the most - and least - effective methods of coordination; and future directions of the coordination process, including processes associated with greater fixity of exchange rates. These studies will be readily accessible to policymakers, while offering sophisticated analyses to interested scholars of the global economy
The Economics of exchange rates : selected studies by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
13 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 559 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

Functioning of the international monetary system by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These two volumes present analytical work done in the Fund on the international monetary system over the 1987-91 period. Most of the articles were written by Fund staff, but the book also contains a number of countributions by academic consultants to the Fund. The aim is to provide not a comprehensive collection of work done in the Fund (the list would be too long for that), but rather to bring together a set of papers that conveys the flavor of those live issues about the system that commanded close attention in the research program. Consistent with this orientation, the book is divided into the following four sections: international economic policy coordination; European monetary and exchange rate issues (the EMS, EMU, and German unification); exchange rate determination, alternative exchange arrangements, and reform of the system; and foreign exchange markets, exchange market intervention, and international reserves
From centrally-planned to market economies : the road from CPE to PCPE by Guillermo A Calvo ( Book )
13 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper deals with the early stages of transformation of centrally-planned economies (CBEs) into market economies during which expectations playa key role. It focuses on the transitional phase during which the economy is not any more a CPE but has not yet become a market economy. During this phase the economy is referred to as a 'previously centrally-planned economy" (PCPE). A simple model is developed to analyze the consequences of expected price liberalization. The model highlights the anticipatory character of economic behavior during the early stages of the transformation process. A major focus is given to credit markets. The CPEs undergoing transformation lack depth and breadth of financial markets. The lack of information necessary to assess risk and creditworthiness complicates the conduct of credit polity. The analysis illustrates the benefits of an early development of such markets, and of finding appropriate ways to "clean" the balance sheets of enterprises and banks from bad loans. It demonstrates the cost of a fine-tuning strategy and the benefits from a quick implementation of price reform. The paper also examines alternative means to reduce 'liquidity overhang, " and shows that all involve taxation of one form or another. The consequences of privatization are analyzed and the benefits of an early development of an effective tax system highlighted

International effects of tax reforms by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
13 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper highlights the significance of open-economy considerations in the analysis of tax reforms. It focuses on domestic and international consequences of revenue-neutral conversions between income and value-added tax systems. The principal conclusion of this investigation is that the direction of changes in the world rate of interest, the domestic tax-adjusted rate of interest, domestic and foreign investment, growth rates of consumption, and other key macroeconomic variables consequent on revenue-neutral tax reforms depend on whether the country adopting the tax reform runs a surplus or a deficit in the current account of its balance of payments. For example, a conversion from an income to a value-added tax system lowers the world rate of interest if the country adopting the reform runs a surplus in the current account of its balance of payments, but raises the world rate of interest if its current account is in a deficit. The paper also examines the implications of such reforms in the presence of direct foreign investment and considers alternative specifications of tax treatments, one based on the source of income, and the other on the country of residence of the taxpayer. It demonstrates the robustness of the key propositions to these alternatives
International VAT harmonization : economic effects by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
12 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper highlights macroeconomic issues pertinent to the understanding of the international and domestic effects of international VAT harmonization. It outlines elements of the policies of VAT harmonization envisaged for Europe of 1992, and develops a basic tax model which is suitable for the analysis of the incentive effects of various tax policies and their welfare implications. The model emphasizes the effects of changes in the time profile of the various taxes on the intertemporal allocations of savings, investment, and labor. Dynamic simulations reveal that the macroeconomic and welfare implications of VAT harmonization depend critically on the tax system and on the degree of substitution governing temporal and intertemporal allocations. In this context we consider several forms of income (cash flow, labor income, and capital income taxes) as well as tax systems embodying various saving and investment incentives. The simulations also reveal the potential conflicts of interest, within each country and between countries, that can arise from VAT harmonization
Obstacles to transforming centrally-planned economies : the role of capital markets by Guillermo A Calvo ( Book )
10 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper identifies obstacles hindering the transformation of centrally-planned economies (CPEs) into well-functioning market economies. The analysis is motivated by the recent experience with economic transformation and restructuring in Eastern Europe and the U.S.S.R. The economic system in CPEs is highly distorted. Prices do not represent real social costs, incentives systems are absent, losses of unprofitable state-owned enterprises are automatically financed, legislations vital for the functioning of markets are not in place, private ownership and property rights are underdeveloped, bankruptcy laws are absent, markets are missing, shortages prevail and, occasionally, inflation is high. The obstacles identified relate to (i) anticipatory dynamics, (ii) monetary overhang and the budget, and (iii) underdeveloped credit markets. It is demonstrated that these obstacles inhibit the effectiveness of price reform, monetary and credit policies, and trade liberalization. The analysis focuses on various ways to remove the obstacles. In this regard, a special examination is made of the implications of cleaning the balance sheets of enterprises and banks from nonperforming loans, as well as ways to enhance credibility. In the absence of such measures, privatization will be difficult since the necessary information about creditworthiness of firms is lacking. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of sequencing, safety nets. and their associated obstacles
International spillovers of taxation by Jacob A Frenkel ( Book )
10 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 59 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
