The European Central Bank : credibility, transparency, and centralization by Jakob de Haan( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The adoption of the euro in 1999 by 11 member states of the European Union created a single currency area second in economic size only to the United States. The euro area's monetary policy is now set by the European Central Bank (ECB) and its Governing Council rather than by individual national central banks. This CESifo volume examines issues that have arisen in the first years of ECB monetary policy and analyzes the effect that current ECB policy strategy and structures may have in the future."--Jacket

"Professors Eijffinger and de Haan give a brief history of European economic, financial, and monetary integration before the transition to EMU, and continue with a comprehensive analysis of institutions and policies." "With key issues and case material highlighted and summarized in boxes for easy access, this account provides a new look at a core topic of interest for students of European economics and financial markets, international economics and finance, and European studies."--Jacket
The history of the Bundesbank : lessons for the European Central Bank by Jakob de Haan( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After fifty years the Deutsche Bundesbank - the central bank that dominated European monetary affairs - has stepped down to entrust monetary policy to the European Central Bank (ECB). This is the first research work to thoroughly explore the lessons to be learned from the Bundesbank by the ECB, in areas such as price stability and political interference
European financial markets and institutions by Jakob de Haan( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written for undergraduate and graduate students of finance, economics and business, this textbook provides a fresh analysis of the European financial system.

Financial markets and institutions : a European perspective by Jakob de Haan( Book )

28 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the first edition of this book, the world's financial system went through its greatest crisis for a century. What made this crisis unique is that severe financial problems emerged simultaneously in many different countries and that its economic impact was felt throughout the world as a result of the increased interconnectedness of the global economy. Written for undergraduate and graduate students of finance, economics and business, the second edition of this successful textbook provides a fresh analysis of the world financial system in light of the recent financial crisis. Combining theory, empirical data and policy, it examines and explains financial markets, financial infrastructures, financial institutions and challenges in the domain of financial supervision and competition policy. This new edition features three completely new chapters, one on financial crises, a second on financial innovation, and, on the policy side, a third on the monetary policy of the European Central Bank"--

Is there really a European business cycle? by Robert Inklaar( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we argue that in contrast to the conclusion of Artis and Zhang, there is not much evidence in support of the view that increased exchange rate stability is related to more synchronised business cycles in Europe. This finding may have important consequences, as existing differences in business cycles in the EMU-countries may not disappear due to further monetary integration, making a common monetary policy hazardous

No need to run millions of regressions by Jan-Egbert Sturm( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We argue that in modelling cross-country growth models one should first identify so-called outlying observations. For the data set of Sala-i-Martin, we use the least median of squares (LMS) estimator to identify outliers. As LMS is not suited for inference, we then use reweighted least squares (RLS) for our cross-country growth models. We identify 27 variables that are significantly related to economic growth. Subsequently, applying Sala-i-Martin's approach for the data set without outliers hardly reveals any additional information. Variables that are insignificant according to the RLS method are generally not significantly related to economic growth under the Sala-i-Martin approach
Look who's talking: ECB communication during the first years of EMU by David-Jan Jansen( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper studies ECB and Bundesbank communication on monetary policy during the first years of the European Economic and Monetary Union. We study whether statements by different (groups of) central bankers have been contradictory and whether differences have diminished over time. We find that statements on the interest rate, inflation and economic growth have indeed been contradictory. Furthermore, national central banks continue to dominate communication on monetary policy. Finally, only the ECB Executive Board has observed radio silence before ECB Governing Council meetings. A positive conclusion is that, over time, interest rate statements have become less contradictory
Restructuring the ECB by Helge Berger( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soon, euro area membership could more than double, with the vast majority of accession countries being quite different in economic terms compared with current members. Under the current decision-making system, this can lead to high decisionmaking costs and there is a risk that monetary policy could deviate from the targets specified in the Maastricht treaty. While centralization might be a first-bestʺ solution to these problems in many ways, there are possible disadvantages from a political economy perspective, including a potential conflict with the established voting rights of current euro area member countries. An alternative solution to ensure the European perspective of decision-making in the ECB Council is to match economic size and voting power. One way to implement this principle is a rotation scheme for national central bank governors that takes economic differences between the member countries into account. The paper discusses various rotation schemes, also with a view to the decision-making cost argument
The European Central Bank at ten by Jakob de Haan( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coming at a critical juncture for the euro, the book takes stock of the ECB's experience during its first ten years and discusses the way ahead. The articles are written by well-known experts in the field and provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of relevant policy issues, including the ECB's communication and its monetary strategy and instruments
Financial supervision in the 21st century by A. Joanne Kellermann( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The financial crisis prompted financial supervisors to take a critical look at their own performance. Supervision has become more forward-looking, taking into account also soft controls, such as 'conduct and culture', corporate governance, and business models of financial institutions. The 'toolkit' available to supervisors is considerably more varied than it was a few years ago. This collection of essays discusses several significant changes in supervision methods and supervisory organisations and examines what methods contribute to 'good supervision' and what can reasonably be expected of supervisors. The authors are experts in the field and most of them are affiliated to organisations responsible for financial supervision
Does money matter in the ECB strategy? : New evidence based on ECB communication by Helge Berger( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine the role of money in the policies of the ECB, using introductory statements of the ECB President at the monthly press conferences during 1999-2004. Over time, the relative amount of words devoted to the monetary analysis has decreased. Our analysis of indicators of the monetary policy stance suggests that developments in the monetary sector, while somewhat more important in the later half of the sample, only played a minor role most of the time. Our estimates of ECB interest rate decisions suggest that the ECB's words (monetary-sector based policy intensions) are not an important determinant of its actions. -- ECB ; communication ; monetary policy
The importance of being vigilant : has ECB communication influenced euro area inflation expectations? by David-Jan Jansen( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using daily data on inflation-indexed bonds, we find evidence of a negative relationship between ECB communication regarding risks to price stability - measured on the basis of the frequency and strength of the keyword 'vigilance' - and changes in euro area break-even inflation. However, this result is only found for the second half of 2005. At that time, the start of a tightening of ECB monetary policy was increasingly likely. This suggests that communication should be closely in line with policy actions before it can be effective. Still, we also find that the economic significance of this type of communication has been small
Interest rate linkages in EMU countries : a rolling threshold vector error-correction approach by Tigran Poghosyan( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest rate linkages, financial integration, EMU, threshold vector error-correction. - This paper revisits financial market integration in the European Economic and Monetary Union, using a threshold vector error-correction model (TVECM) for a fixed rolling window. This approach enables us to analyze the dynamics of transaction costs and detect any co-movements with (policy induced) changes in the financial environment. The TVECM methodology is applied on interest rates from different financial markets (government bonds, deposits, loans and mortgages) in Germany, France, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands for the 1980-2006 period. Our main finding is that only for some country pairs and financial market segments there is evidence in support of financial integration
Does ECB communication help in predicting its interest rate decisions? by David-Jan Jansen( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine the usefulness of communication by the European Central Bank for predicting its interest rate decisions. We use ordered probit models based on the Taylor rule which we estimate using statements by ECB officials as well as macroeconomic variables. Statements by ECB officials on the main refinancing rate and future inflation are significantly related to ECB decisions. However, an out-of-sample evaluation shows that communication-based models do not outperform models based on macroeconomic data in predicting decisions. Both sets of models only accurately predict decisions to leave interest rates unchanged
Does high inflation cause central bankers to lose their job? : evidence based on a new data set by Axel Dreher( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper introduces new data on the term in office of central bank governors in 137 countries for 1970-2004. Our panel models show that the probability that a central bank governor is replaced in a particular year is positively related to the share of the term in office elapsed, political and regime instability, the occurrence of elections, and inflation. The latter result suggests that the turnover rate of central bank governors (TOR) is a poor indicator of central bank independence. This is confirmed in models for cross-section inflation in which TOR becomes insignificant once its endogeneity is taken into account
Determinants of cross-border bank acquisitions in transition economies a latent class analysis by Tigran Poghosyan( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We analyze the microeconomic determinants of cross-border bank acquisitions in 16 transition economies over the period 1996-2006. By using a latent class discrete choice model we explicitly incorporate the macroeconomic and institutional heterogeneity of the transition economies into our analysis. We find that foreign banks target relatively large and efficient banks when they enter transition economies with weak institutions. This evidence provides support for the market power hypothesis. However, when foreign banks enter more developed transition economies that have made progress in economic reform, they acquire less efficient banks. This result is in line with the efficiency hypothesis
