Economics after the crisis : objectives and means by Adair Turner( Book )
17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The global economic crisis of 2008--2009 seemed a crisis not just of economic performance but also of the system's underlying political ideology and economic theory. But a second Great Depression was averted, and the radical shift to New Deal-like economic policies predicted by some never took place. Perhaps the correct response to the crisis is simply careful management of the macroeconomic challenges as we recover, combined with reform of financial regulation to prevent a recurrence. In Economics After the Crisis, Adair Turner offers a strong counterargument to this somewhat complacent view. The crisis of 2008--2009, he writes, should prompt a wide set of challenges to economic and political assumptions and to economic theory
Just capital : the liberal economy by Adair Turner( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Challenging and at times provocative, "Just Capital" explores how we combine, reconcile and, if necessary, trade-off a dynamic and growing economy with an inclusive and environmentally responsible society. It considers in particular, and debunks, the proposition that the "globalization" of the world economy limits our ability to combine economic success and a "good" society. It explores how information technology is transforming businessess and economic structures, but challenge conventional assumptions about the social implications of the "knowledge" society
The future of finance : the LSE report ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Each month for this past year, twelve leading economists have been meeting at the London School of Economics (LSE) to try to get to the heart of what is wrong with today's global financial system. This report synthesizes this collective, collaborative knowledge. This report is an in-depth, important work of economic analysis. "A key theme is that the scale of financial asset creation has been grossly excessive and far beyond the needs of the real economy--which is the ultimate touchstone of a healthy financial system." One of the issues that INET is deeply concerned about is how to rethink the way finance could work better in the modern economy. We are attempting to create a discussion about the shape of a new paradigm of economic thinking, one that is informed by some of these top economists, but also evolves from democratic input as well
A new pension settlement for the twenty-first century : the second report of the Pensions Commission by Great Britain( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Pensions Commission is an independent body established by the Government to review the adequacy of current arrangements for private pensions and retirement savings in the UK, and to make recommendations on appropriate policy changes, including the option of moving to a compulsory system. Following on from its first report (available below) published in October 2004, 'A New Pension Settlement for the Twenty-First Century - The Second Report of the Pensions Commission', sets out the Commission's conclusions on the likely evolution of the UK pension system if policy is unchanged, and makes recommendations for a new policy direction. Recommendations are based on two key elements: the automatic enrolment of employees into either a new National Pensions Savings System or into existing company pension schemes, with an option for employees to opt-out, and with a modest compulsory employer matching contribution; and reform of state pension provision in order to make it simpler to understand and less means-tested

The 1999 Annual McCormick Lecture Competitiveness, growth and unemployment - Europe's flexibility challenge ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper addresses the causes of the high levels of unemployment in Europe. It argues that the conventional wisdom according to which Europe is undergoing a crisis of competitiveness is wrong. It shows that the crisis is of flexibility, in terms of labour mobility, working practices, skill and the skill to learn, working time, firing and its corollary hiring, wage dispersion. Against this background, the analysis highlights the need to change existing labour market policies as well as the weaknesses of some wrong solutions such as the enforcement of a generalised working time reduction or a tax harmonisation across Europe in order to struggle against the so-called "social dumping".--SCAD summary
Too much of the wrong sort of capital flow by Adair Turner( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The global financial crisis of 2007 to 2008 was in some senses not global at all - but a crisis within the financial systems of the most advanced economies, in particular the US and Europe. And among its origins lay profound mistakes in the regulation of domestic financial markets and of major financial centres. But it is widely believed that imbalances in the global economy and inadequacies in the international monetary system were also root causes of both this latest and of previous financial crises. Among the arguments made are that: i) Large current imbalances, reflecting a surplus country 'savings glut', lay behind the harmful explosion of unsustainable credit in deficit countries; ii) Inadequate IMF official liquidity facilities encouraged precautionary reserve accumulation, and thus contributed to the large imbalances; iii) The US dollar's status as the predominant reserve currency allows the US the 'exorbitant priviledge' of running large current-account deficits matched by unsustainable domestic credit extension; iv) Short-term capital flows unrelated to economic fundamentals introduce dangerous instability

Shadow banking and financial instability by Adair Turner( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In a speech to the CASS Business School the Chairman of the Financial Services Authority (FSA), Lord Turner, set out how the 'shadow banking' sector contributed to the financial crisis, the risks it still poses to financial stability and the importance of a sufficiently comprehensive and radical policy response. He highlighted that the 2007-08 financial crisis was not one simply caused by high street banks but one where shadow banking activities played a major role. He described how the shadow banking sector is not simply a standalone system running parallel to the regular banking system but is linked to the banking system in complex and difficult to discern ways that can make the whole system less stable. He stressed that major reforms had been put in place in the wake of the crisis for 'normal' banks including increased capital and liquidity requirements and better supervision, but said there had yet to be a similar response to the 'shadow' sector and that this needed to be addressed urgently. Lord Turner described shadow banking as covering multiple specific institutions and activities including securitised lending, hedge funds active in credit markets, investment bank trading of credit securities, the issuance of asset backed commercial paper and the 'repo' market. He set out how money could move through the system in long and complex chains which in combination performed the same role as banks, which involved the same risks, but which fell outside the framework of controls with which regulators seek to make the banking system safe
