Power play : energy and manufacturing in North America( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent boom in unconventional energy production has been transforming the energy landscape in North America, with important implications for global energy markets and broader competitiveness outlook. In parallel, and linked to a large extent to the energy boom, important but divergent trends in manufacturing have been emerging in the region. This collection tells the story of the energy-manufacturing nexus from the perspective of the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and of the region as a whole, which produces nearly a quarter of the world's energy. It also looks at the North American perspective on the energy-manufacturing linkages. Using model simulations, the authors look at how the changing energy landscape can affect the potential benefits of greater integration across the three North American economies. The volume concludes with a policy perspective on the North American energy relationships and prospects for collaboration

Fiscal risks : sources, disclosure, and management by Aliona Cebotari( Book )

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

This paper analyzes the main sources of fiscal risks, including from unexpected changes in macroeconomic variables and banking crises, which can have major consequences for countries' fiscal and public debt sustainability. It builds on an overview of existing practices in a wide range of countries to provide practical suggestions on how to promote disclosure of such risks and on risk mitigation and management. The paper was written in response to requests from IMF member countries for advice on this subject. The paper also includes an example of a possible statement of fiscal risks
Canada, selected issues by Lusine Lusinyan( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The unconventional energy boom has had significant positive effects on Canada's economic activity and has the potential to contribute even more in the future with the appropriate extension of infrastructure capacity. Our findings suggest that while limited exports capacity would result in output losses over the medium term, the potential output gains from a full market access of Canada's energy products could reach about 2 percent of GDP over a ten year horizon. Actions can be taken on a number of fronts to resolve transportation constraints and address domestic market segmentation. These include diversifying international export markets for Canadian energy products, which would require building pipeline and export infrastructure to facilitate access to non-U.S. markets. Energy integration between Canada's western and eastern provinces can be strengthened further, and recent initiatives in this direction are welcome. More generally, there appears to be an important scope to increase inter-industry linkages across Canada that would lead to wider sharing of benefits from the energy sector"--Abstract
Assessing the Macroeconomic Impact of Structural Reforms The Case of Italy by Lusine Lusinyan( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wide-ranging structural reforms are underway in Italy, aimed at addressing key bottlenecks in the product and labor markets. Our analysis, based on the IMF?s Global Integrated Monetary and Fiscal model (GIMF), attempts to quantify the potential gains to the economy from a comprehensive package of structural reforms. We find that these gains can be sizeable. While in most cases, the reforms go in the right direction, their impact would depend on effective and timely implementation. In some areas, especially in the labor market, reforms would benefit from further strengthening. The priorities sh

Italy selected issues by International Monetary Fund( Book )

Based on the economic literature, various policy measures and institutions in the product and labor markets that increase growth and employment are studied. From a cross-country approach, this study finds a significant relationship between Vertical Fiscal Imbalances (VFIs) and fiscal performance in OECD countries. Different measures of vertical imbalance are used. To assess the impact of a vertical gap, a panel equation is estimated that is related to general government primary balance to vertical balance, spending decentralization, covariates, and interaction terms

Work absence in Europe by Leo Bonato( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work absence is an important part of the individual decision on actual working hours. This paper focuses on sickness absence in Europe and develops a stylized model where absence is part of the labor-leisure decision made by workers and the production decision made by profit-maximizing firms, with insurance provisions and labor market institutions affecting the costs of absence. The results from a panel of 18 European countries indicate that absence is increased by generous insurance schemes where employers bear little responsibility for their costs. Shorter working hours reduce absence, but flexible working arrangements are preferable if labor supply erosion is a concern
Short-Term Capital, Economic Transformation, and EU Accession by Lusine Lusinyan( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Da eine Verschuldung in kurzfristiger Form oft als sehr volatil angesehen wird, betrifft ein wichtiger Aspekt der gegenwärtigen Diskussion über die Integration der internationalen Finanzmärkte die Frage, wie man die Fristigkeit der Auslandsverschuldung verlängern kann. Für die Transformationsländer Zentral- und Osteuropa scheinen politische Lehren in dieser Beziehung besonders wichtig. Diese Länder haben ihren Kapitalverkehr schon zu einem großen Teil liberalisiert und die künftige Mitgliedschaft in der EU verlangt das Ende der noch bestehenden Kontrollen. Dieses Papier betrachtet die Erfahrungen der Transformationsländer bei der Liberalisierung des kurzfristigen Kapitalölverkehrs und analysiert die Faktoren, die den Anteil der kurzfristigen Verschuldung beeinflussen
Argentina : selected issues( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medium-term prospects for Argentina's external balance sheet: Following the 2001/2 crisis, Argentina has experienced a steady contraction in its external balance sheet. After a build-up of external imbalances in the late 1990s, the 2001/2 crisis precipitated a collapse in the currency, sovereign default and large scale private sector debt restructuring: all of which led to significant external deleveraging. This trend of external balance sheet contraction continued for the proceeding decade, as capital account openness declined. An improvement in the terms of trade and a current account surplus meant that liabilities declined at a faster rate than assets, leading to the net International Investment Position (IIP) becoming positive and reaching 9 percent of GDP in 2014
Decentralizing spending more than revenue does it hurt fiscal performance? by Luc Eyraud( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many countries the decentralization of spending responsibilities has outpaced the decentralization of revenue powers. Sub-national governments have then to rely on transfers from the center and borrowing to finance their spending. When this occurs, we find that the overall fiscal deficit tends to increase. This result is based on cross-country econometric evidence from OECD countries, and is particularly strong in the presence of regional disparities. Fiscal discipline can be strengthened by ensuring that sub-national taxing powers are adequate to meet spending obligations

Argentina, economic developments( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document on economic developments and policies was prepared in the context of an informal Executive Board briefing on Argentina under the procedures for members with excessive delays in Article IV consultations. Under these procedures, IMF staff prepares an assessment of the member’s economy and policies based on information that is publicly available and without consultation with the member. The document, which constitutes the views of IMF staff, is aimed at keeping the Board informed about developments in the country. Given the absence of a more complete set of information, and a more thorough policy dialogue with authorities, this document should not be characterized as an IMF Article IV staff report nor should it be portrayed as representing the views of the Executive Board. Similarly, the associated informal Executive Board briefing does not constitute an Article IV consultation with the member. This document is based on the information available at the time it was completed on April 29, 2015

Determinants of Short-Term Debt by Lusine Lusinyan( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One key focus of the on-going debate on the integration of international financial markets have been measures to lengthen the maturity of foreign debt. Short-term debt is typically considered to be volatile and thus a potential trigger of currency crises. In contrast to the vivid policy debate on these issues, there is relatively little theoretical and empirical evidence on the determinants of short-term debt. This paper summarizes the theoretical literature on the issue and presents a stylized theoretical model, which focuses on the risks and benefits of short-term debt under conditions of uncertainty. Empirical evidence shows that the level of economic development, the presence of financial centres, and the share of loans to banks have a positive impact on the share of short-term loans. OECD membership, in contrast, has a negative influence
