The future of EMU : what does the history of monetary unions tell us? by Michael D Bordo( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creation of EMU and the ECB has triggered a discussion of the future of EMU. Independent observers have pointed to a number of shortcomings or hazard areas' in the construction of EMU, such as the absence of a central lender of last resort function for EMU, the lack of a central authority supervising the financial systems of EMU, unclear and inconsistent policy guidelines for the ECB, the absence of central co-ordination of fiscal policies within EMU, unduly strict criteria for domestic debt and deficits, as set out in the Maastricht rules, in the face of asymmetric shocks, and Euroland as not an optimal' currency area. Do these 'flaws' represent major threats to the future of EMU? Or will they be successfully resolved by the European policy authorities, leading to a lasting and prosperous EMU? We provide answers to these questions by examining the historical record of monetary unions. We try to extract the key conditions for establishing and for maintaining monetary unions intact. Our main lesson from the history of monetary unions is that political factors will be the central determinants of the future of EMU. The 'economic' shortcomings of EMU will likely be overcome as long as political unity prevails within EMU

The common development of institutional change as measured by income velocity : a century of evidence from industrialized countries by Michael D Bordo( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Previous evidence, most recently by Bordo and Jonung (1990) and Silclos (1988b, 1991), has shown on a country-by-country basis that proxies for institutional change significantly improve our understanding of the long-run behaviour of velocity and. consequently, of the demand for money. If institutional change is a common development across industrialized countries it should have a common influence on velocity whereas the same need not be true for the other principal determinants of velocity such as income and interest rates. In statistical terms, this implies that the institutional change process should be cointegrated across countries but the conventional velocity determinants need not be. The purpose of this study is to extend the existing evidence to study common features in velocity, income, and interest rates, across countries. The countries considered are Canada, the U.S., the U.K.. Norway. and Sweden. We are relying on a sample of annual observations from 1870. The recently developed and refined techniques of testing for conintegration are used to study the common features in the series of interest. Briefly, the evidence suggests support for the view that there exists a unique long-run relationship in velocity but not in income and interest rates and that the common feature in velocity is more apparent after rather than before World War 11. However, before World War II, common features in velocity are more apparent for the U.S. and Canada. and separately, for Norway and Sweden. Finally. we find that only a model which includes institutional change proxies possesses a single common stochastic trend in the pooled time series. as well as long-run elasticities consistent with theoretical predictions. We argue that the evidence can only be understood in the context of common historical developments in the respective countries' financial systems

The euro - what's in it for me? : an economic analysis of the Swedish euro referendum of 2003 by Lars Jonung( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of approximately 170 publications shows (a) that US academic economists concentrated on the question "Is the EMU a good or bad thing?", usually adopting the paradigm of optimum currency areas as their main analytical vehicle, (b) that they displayed considerable scepticism towards the single currency, (c) that economists within the Federal Reserve System had a less analytical and a more pragmatic approach to the single currency than US academic economists, and (e) that US economists adjusted their views and analytical approach as European monetary unification progressed. In particular, the traditional optimum currency approach was gradually put into question"--Publication information page
A fiscal union for the euro : some lessons from history by Michael D Bordo( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent financial crisis 2007-2009 was the longest and the deepest recession since the Great Depression of 1930. The crisis that originated in subprime mortgage markets was spread and amplified through globalised financial markets and resulted in severe debt crises in several European countries in 2010 and 2011. Events revealed that the European Union had insufficient means to halt the spiral of European debt crisis. In particular, no pan-European fiscal mechanism to face a global crisis is available at present. The aim of this study is to identify the characteristics of a robust common fiscal policy framework that could have alleviated the consequences of the recent crisis. This is done by using the political and fiscal history of five federal states; Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Germany and the United States
