Economic theory of optimal population by Klaus F Zimmermann( Book )

8 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are used to calling most developing countries overpopulated and consi dering some industrialized countries (like West Germany) "threatened by underpopulation". Analogous population policies with different objecti ves are discussed. However, none of the measures suggested can be justi fied or evaluated without an implicit concept of optimum population, a notion which has attracted attention ever since economics was made a science. The relevance of the subject and the recent rise in interest by popula tion economists has motivated the organization of a conference on "Opti mal Population" in Bielefeld, where most of this book originates.

Aspects of central bank policy making by Zvi Eckstein( Book )

14 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a collection of papers which were presented and discussed at a conference in January 1990 at the Bank of Israel and Tel Aviv University. The volume has three parts. The first part deals with the rules and the constraints that are fundamental for central bank policy making. It starts with a critical review of 75 years of monetary policy of the US Federal Reserve Bank (A. Meltzer), followed by several studies directed at the issues concerning the establishment of a European Central Bank (T. Padoa-Schioppa, A. Drazen, H. Bockelmann, A. Cukierman, E. Helpman and L. Leiderman). The second part deals with insurance, regulation and safety of commercial banks (B. Bental, Z. Eckstein and D. Peled; J.H. Boyd and A.J. Rolnick). The last part contains analyses of monetary policies in Germany (H.-J. Dudler) and Israel (L. Meridor and S. Pessach; A. Razin and E. Sadka; A. Offenbacher). Part of the research included in this volume is the result of a two-year research project on "Central Bank Policies, Desinflation and the Macroeconomy" conducted at the D. Horowitz Institute. The contributors to this project were: the Bundesbank, the Bank of England, the Bank of Italy, the Bank of Israel, the Bank for International Settlements and the Bank of The Netherlands

Dynamic female labor supply by Zvi Eckstein( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increase in female employment and participation rates is one of the most dramatic economic changes to have taken place during the last century. However, while the employment rate of married women more than doubled during the last fifty years, that of unmarried women remained almost constant. In order to empirically analyze these trends we divide the paper into two parts: In the first, we empirically estimate a traditional female dynamic labor supply model using an extended version of Eckstein and Wolpin (1989) in order to compare the various explanations in the literature for the observed trends. The main finding is that the rise in education levels accounts for about one-third of the increase in female employment while about 40 percent remains unexplained by observed household characteristics. We show that this unexplained portion can be empirically attributed to changes in preferences or the costs of childrearing and household maintenance. In the second part, we formulate and estimate a new framework for the couple intra-family game that is then used to analyze the household dynamic labor supply. We find that female labor supply may have increased significantly due to a change in the form of the household game. -- Dynamic discrete choice ; female employment ; accounting ; household game

Jewish occupational selection : education, restrictions or minorities? by Maristella Botticini( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This paper documents the major features of Jewish economic history in the first millennium to explain the distinctive occupational selection of the Jewish people into urban, skilled occupations. We show that many Jews entered urban occupations in the eighth-ninth centuries in the Muslim Empire when there were no restrictions on their economic activities, most of them were farmers, and they were a minority in all locations. Therefore, arguments based on restrictions or minority status cannot explain the occupational transition of the Jews at that time. Our thesis is that the occupational selection of the Jews was the outcome of the widespread literacy prompted by a religious and educational reform in the first century ce, which was implemented in the third to the eighth century. We present detailed information on the implementation of this religious and educational reform in Judaism based on the Talmud, archeological evidence on synagogues, the Cairo Geniza documents, and the Responsa literature. We also provide evidence of the economic returns to Jewish religious literacy"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
Estimating the return to training and occupational experience : the case of female immigrants by Sarit Cohen-Goldner( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Do government provided training programs benefit the participants and the society? We address this question in the context of female immigrants who first learn the new language and then choose between working or attending government provided training. Although theoretically training may have several outcomes, most evaluations have focused on only one outcome of training: the expected wage. However, training might have no direct effect on wage, but, nevertheless, affect employment probability in higher paid jobs. In order to measure the return to government provided training, and overcome the above reservations, we formulate an estimable stochastic dynamic discrete choice model of training and employment. Our estimates imply that training has no significant impact on the mean offered wage in bluecollar occupation, but training increases the mean offered wage in white-collar occupation by 19 percent. Training also substantially increases the job offer rates in both occupations. Furthermore, counterfactual policy simulations show that free access to training programs relative to no training could cause an annual earnings growth of 31.3 percent. This large social gain (ignoring the cost of the program) comes mainly from the impact of training on the job offer probabilities and, consequently, on unemployment, and not, as conventionally thought, from the impact of training on potential earnings. Moreover, free access to training increases the average ex-ante expected present value of utility for a female immigrant at arrival (individual benefit) by 50 percent relative to the existing training opportunity"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
A decade of editing the European economic review by Zvi Eckstein( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This story describes the circumstances that led to all five of us starting as editors at the same time, the unexpected things we have found, the unanticipated reactions we have encountered, how we worked as an editorial team, the central role of the editorial office manager, how we managed to work with five different publishers in ten years, the various initiatives we have developed to involve associate editors and referees, the early electronic editing system, and the creation of the essential database of potential referees. We will also describe the difficulties we have encountered in reaching one of our early goals to reduce the median time of first response to less than four months. Along the way, we will share a few anecdotes to illustrate the work of an academic journal editor
