The transition in Eastern Europe by Olivier Jean Blanchard ( )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When communism fell in 1989, the question for most Eastern European countries was not whether to go to a market economy, but how to get there. Several years later, the difficult process of privatization and restructuring continues to concern the countries of the region. The Transition in Eastern Europe, Volumes 1 and 2 is an analysis of the experiences of various countries making the transition to market economies and examines the most important challenges still in store. Volume 1, Country Studies, gives an in-depth, country-by-country analysis of various reform experiences, including historical backgrounds and discussions of policies and results to date. The countries analyzed are Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, eastern Germany, Slovenia, and Russia. Written by leading economists, some of whom helped shape local and national reforms, this volume identifies common progress, common difficulties, and tentative solutions to the problems of economic transition. Volume 2, Restructuring, focuses on specific issues of transition, including how to design labor market institutions, privatization, new fiscal structures, and bankruptcy laws; how to reorganize foreign trade; and how to promote foreign direct investment. The articles, written by experts in the field, will be of direct help to those involved in the transition process. These volumes provide a standard reference on economic transition in the region for policymakers in Eastern Europe and in western countries, for international agencies concerned with the transition process, and for anyone interested in learning about the dramatic changes that have recently occurred in Eastern Europe

Suggestions for a new set of fiscal indicators by Olivier Blanchard ( Book )
8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are four sets of questions that fiscal indicators can help answer: (1) Of the changes in the fiscal position, what part is due to changes in the economic environment and what part is due to policy? (2) Can the current course of fiscal policy be sustained, or will the government have to adjust taxes or spending? (3) What is the effect of fiscal policy on activity, through its effects on relative prices, be it the price of labour or the price of capital? (4) What is the macroeconomic impact of fiscal policy, through deficit and debt finance?This paper is one of three in this Working Paper Series, along with those by Chouraqui et al. and Gramlich, in which the assessment of fiscal policy is reconsidered. It argues that no single indicator can give even rough answers to all those questions. It then develops four (sets of) indicators, aimed at answering each of the questions
Reconstructing the world economy by Olivier J Blanchard ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume presents papers from a high-level conference organized by the Korea Development Institute and the IMF "for policymakers and academics from the Asian region and from G-20 countries to discuss forward-looking economic and financial issues of interest to the international community, such as restoring normalcy to fiscal policy, macroprudential regulation, the future of the financial system, global fiscal imbalances, and the international monetary system. Topics include: (1) A strategy for renormalizing fiscal and monetary policies in advanced economies. Key principles for restoring financial stability in the wake of the crisis, including the timing and sequence for exit, are identified. (2) Rethinking macroeconomic policy. This section examines if and how macroeconomic policy should respond to sectoral imbalances and asset-price and housing imbalances, as well as a potential role for macroprudential regulation. (3) Redesigning the financial system of the future. Responses by both policymakers and the private sector to recent events are evaluated in terms of how they will shape the future financial system and its role in the global economy. (4) Global imbalances. The argument is made that there is an urgent need to address the domestic and international distortions that are a key cause of imbalances; failure to do so would threaten the sustainability of the recovery. (5) The future of the international monetary system. Steps that can be taken to address the inherent weaknesses in the current system are described, including possible solutions on both the demand side and on the supply side."--Publisher's description

Macroeconomía by Olivier Blanchard ( Book )
34 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
- Dos son los grandes objetivos de este libro: 1) poner al lector en estrecho contacto con los acontecimientos macroeconómicos actuales; 2) Ofrecer una visión integrada de la macroeconomía. - La 4 ̇Edición de Macroeconomía de Blanchard está estructurada en torno a dos partes fundamentales: un núcleo y tres grandes extensiones. La organización flexible del libro pone el énfasis en una visión integrada de la macroeconomía que permite al mismo tiempo a los profesores centrar la atención en las teorías, los modelos y las aplicaciones que consideren fundamentales para su curso. El libro está estudiado con todo detalle en lo que a pedagogía se refiere. En ningún caso se presenta un resultado teórico sin relacionarlo con el mundo real, para lo cual, además de analizar los hechos en el propio texto, se han introducido un gran número de recuadros titulados "Temas concretos", en los que se analizan acontecimientos o hechos macroeconómicos específicos. Se recrean interacciones entre los estudiantes y los profesores que tienen lugar en el aula utilizando "notas al margen", que van paralelas al texto. Su función es establecer un diálogo con el lector, facilitar los pasajes más difíciles y permitir que se comprendan mejor los conceptos y los resultados obtenidos.Incluso para los estudiantes que quieran profundizar más se han introducido tres elementos: - Apéndices breves en algunos capítulos.- Un apartado titulado lecturas complementarias situado al final de la mayoría de los capítulos.- Cada capítulo concluye con tres apartados que pretenden asegurarse de que se ha asimilado su contenido: Un resumen.Una lista de términos clave.Una serie de ejercicios
Revisiting European unemployment : unemployment, capital accumulation, and factor prices by Olivier Blanchard ( Book )
11 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper starts from two sets of facts about Continental Europe. The first is the steady increase in unemployment since the early 1970s. The second is the evolution of the capital share, an initial decline in the 1970s, followed by a much larger increase since the mid-1980s. The paper then develops a model of capital accumulation, unemployment and factor prices. Using this model to look at the data, it reaches two main conclusions: The initial increase in unemployment, from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, was mostly due to a failure of wages to adjust to the slowdown in underlying factor productivity growth. The initial effect was to decrease profit rates and capital shares. Over time, the reaction of firms was to reduce capital accumulation and move away from labor, leading to a steady increase in unemployment, and a recovery of the capital share. The reason why wage moderation, clearly evident in the data since the mid-1980s, has not led to a decrease in unemployment is that another type of shift has been at work, this time on the labor demand side. At a given wage and a given capital stock firms have steadily decreased employment. The effect of this adverse shift in labor demand has been to lead to both continued high unemployment, and increasing capital shares. What lies behind this shift in labor demand? There are two potential lines of explanation. The first is shifts in the distribution of rents away from workers, for example, the elimination of chronic excess employment by firms. The second explanation points to technological bias: firms in Continental Europe are introducing technologies biased against labor and towards capital
