The formulation of monetary policy : a reassessment in the light of recent experience by Paul Atkinson ( Book )
27 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper reassesses, in the light of recent experience, the formulation of monetary policy in terms of targets for monetary aggregates in the major countries. A number of difficulties which have arisen are discussed: instability of the money-income relationship; constraints created by fiscal imbalances; exchange rate variability, as well as debt problems and threats to banks' solvency. The responses of monetary authorities to these difficulties are described and some possible options for the formulation of monetary policy in the future are considered (including nominal income and exchange rate targeting)
Public debt in a medium-term context and its implications for fiscal policy by Jean-Claude Chouraqui ( Book )
14 editions published in 1986 in English and French and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper examines the problems raised by the recent sharp increases in the ratio of public debt to GNP in most OECD Member countries. When interest rates exceed growth rates, this development appears as a symptom of instability in public finances. The paper also analyses the evolution of public debt within the wider framework of the government sector's net worth. One particular aspect of this approach -- the implicit pension liabilities of governments -- is seen to have a significant bearing on the debt outlook in several countries. Finally, the paper assesses the sensitivity of the public debt profile under alternative fiscal policy settings
Monetary policy in the second half of the 1980s : how much room for manoeuvre? by Kevin Clinton ( Book )
15 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper discusses how monetary policy might assist macroeconomic performance in the second half of the 1980s in the G-10 countries, without compromising the medium-term objective of price stability. From this perspective, the recent stance of monetary policy is assessed, as well as its possible effects on output and inflation. The paper also examines the gains that might be expected from a short-run monetary stimulus, internationally coordinated, against the risks that might be implied for central bank credibility
The medium-term macroeconomic strategy revisited by Jean-Claude Chouraqui ( Book )
14 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper discusses several aspects of the medium-term orientation of OECD countries' economic policies in the 1980s, concentrating on monetary and fiscal instruments. The developments that led to the adoption of such a "medium-term strategy", and the apparent analytical rationale for it, are first described. The paper then examines the way the strategy was actually implemented, attempting to judge how closely policies have in fact followed medium-term objectives, and assesses the results. Some lessons from experience with the strategy are outlined in conclusion
The effects of monetary policy on the real sector : an overview of empirical evidence for selected OECD economies by Jean-Claude Chouraqui ( Book )
15 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this study is to assess the current state of understanding about the effects of monetary policy, both at the conceptual level and in the light of the experience of the seven major OECD countries (the United States, Japan, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Italy and Canada) and three selected smaller open economies (Australia, the Netherlands and Sweden) since the early 1970s (1). Over this period, there have been substantial developments in the policy making environment and in the conduct and implementation of monetary policy which may have significantly affected the way monetary variables influence the real sector of the economy. A. Changes in the macroeconomic and financial environment and their implications for policy makingSince the early 1970s there has been a general deterioration in the macroeconomic situation in OECD countries. These have been subjected to large supply shocks, to substantial changes in the rate of inflation, to slow economic growth, to
Indicators of fiscal policy : a re-examination by Jean-Claude Chouraqui ( Book )
16 editions published in 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the past decade, the formulation of fiscal policy has been increasingly founded on medium-term considerations associated with public debt and economic efficiency. In this regard, this paper, and the ones by Olivier Blanchard and Edward Gramlich in the same Working Paper Series, considers the implications of this development for the overall appraisal of fiscal policy in OECD countries. The paper begins with a review of the existing measure of discretionary change in budget positions and proposes refinements to it. The paper then introduces and illustrates several new indicators designed to help assess the sustainability of policies in the short- and medium-run and their first-round impacts on aggregate demand
Medium-term financial strategy : the co-ordination of fiscal and monetary policies by Jean-Claude Chouraqui ( Book )
9 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The aim of this paper is to provide an assessment of the medium-term financial strategies operating in and available to OECD economies. Three issues are discussed: first, the rationale for the increasing adoption of medium-term budgetary and monetary objectives; second, the appropriate criteria for the determination of medium-term policy norms, and the institutional means through which these are implemented; and third, the problems of ensuring consistency between short-term policies and medium-term goals. Underlying these issues is the theme of monetary and fiscal policy co-ordination and the medium-term effectiveness of demand management. To the extent that central banks can contain the pressures stemming from the mix of restrictive monetary targets and expansionary budgets, monetary and fiscal policies might be assigned to different objectives - inflation control and short-term employment support respectively (although monetary restraint would not free expansionary fiscal action

The future of capital income taxation in a liberalised financial environment by David Carey ( Book )
16 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper first gives a brief account of the main changes introduced by OECD governments in their capital income tax rules during the 1980s with respect to both the corporate and personal sectors. It then examines the evolution of effective capital taxation, using a summary measure ("tax wedges") which takes into account the different nature of national tax systems. Finally, the paper discusses the future of capital income taxation in an environment of increasing international capital mobility

La conduite de la politique monétaire dans la phase actuelle de reprise économique by Paul Atkinson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in French and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Après la longue récession qui a suivi le second choc pétrolier, la reprise économique est actuellement amorcée dans la plupart des grands pays de l'OCDE. Elle est d'une importance variable selon les pays : si les Etats-Unis connaissent d'ores et déjà une croissance rapide de la production et une réduction sensible du chômage, on n'observe dans certains pays européens que les tout premiers signes d'un redressement. Néanmoins, la situation semble devoir s'améliorer dans presque tous les pays. En dehors de l'Amérique du Nord, toutefois, on continue de craindré que la reprise ne se révèle fragile dans le cadre de la politique actuellement suivie. De même, on se demande, surtout aux Etats-Unis, si la reprise ne se développera pas trop rapidement, ce qui relancerait l'inflation. Dans la conjoncture actuelle, le problème qui se pose aux autorités est de faire en sorte que ni l'un ni l'autre de ces risques éventuels ne se matérialise afin d'assurer une période d'expansion soutenue. L'étude
Taux d'intérêt réels et perspectives de croissance durable by Paul Atkinson ( Book )
5 editions published between 1983 and 1985 in French and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ces dernières années, le niveau des taux d'intérêt réels est apparu relativement élevé dans la plupart des pays de l'OCDE. Cela n'a pas empêché la reprise économique de se développer (à un rythme plus rapide aux Etats-Unis et au Japon qu'en Europe) pas plus qu'il n'y a eu, semble-t-il, d'effets réellement défavorables sur les investissements des entreprises, en forte progression dans certains pays (les Etats-Unis et le Royaume-Uni par exemple). Cependant, on peut craindre que la persistance de taux réels élevés ne contribue à ralentir l'activité économique. En outre, le niveau élevé des taux d'intérêt -- tant nominaux que réels -- a aggravé les difficultés d'un certain nombre de pays en développement lourdement endettés, affectant ainsi défavorablement les exportations des pays de l'OCDE et menaçant la solidité du système bancaire international. De ce fait, cette situation constitue un sujet de préoccupation quasi général. L'étude qui suit aborde une série de questions soulevées par le
