Moral hazard does IMF financing encourage imprudence by borrowers and lenders? by Timothy D Lane ( )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 6 languages and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The argument that IMF financing creates moral hazard cannot be lightly dismissed. From the outset, this pamphlet recognizes that, to the extent IMF-supported programs try to contain the total economic costs of financial crises, some element of moral hazard - a greater willingness of creditors and debtors to take risks of such crises - is, in principle, an unavoidable consequence. But the key question, rather than a matter of presence or absence, is the degree of moral hazard. The most basic evidence, even in the case of countries that are supposed to be too big to fail, refutes the most extreme hypothesis - that investors believe they have a full guarantee from the IMF in the event of a financial crisis."--Pref

Fiscal discipline and the cost of public debt service : some estimates for OECD countries by Silvia Ardagna ( Book )
24 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"We use a panel of 16 OECD countries over several decades to investigate the effects of government debts and deficits on long-term interest rates. In simple static specifications, a one-percentage-point increase in the primary deficit relative to GDP increases contemporaneous long-term interest rates by about 10 basis points. In a vector autoregression (VAR), the same shock leads to a cumulative increase of almost 150 basis points after 10 years. The effect of debt on interest rates is non-linear: only for countries with above-average levels of debt does an increase in debt affect the interest rate. World fiscal policy is also important: an increase in total OECD-government borrowing increases each country's interest rates. However, domestic fiscal policy continues to affect domestic interest rates even after controlling for worldwide debts and deficits"--National Bureau of Economic Research web site
Real and financial economic dynamics in Russia and eastern Europe : with 50 figures and 63 tables by Timothy D Lane ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Russia and many other transition countries are now facing the challenges of opening up, restructuring, and modernizing their economies, which requires addressing numerous institutional weaknesses and supply-side distortions. The papers in this collection examine these issues both in Russia and from a regional perspective, drawing on the experience of other reforming countries. Aspects addressed include the implications of trade and capital flows, the process of labor market reform, financial market development, productivity growth, and innovation dynamics. The dynamics of the reform process are also studied in the context of new political economy models

Does public disagreement on monetary policy unsettle the markets? by Timothy D Lane ( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Increased transparency about the formulation of monetary policy is one of the key ingredients of inflation targeting.2 Such transparency is especially important given the nature of an inflation target-where the monetary authorities' inflation forecast is used as an intermediate target (Svensson, 1996). By way of comparison, if monetary policy uses the exchange rate or a monetary aggregate as an intermediate target, market participants and the public can in principle assess whether policy is on track through a straightforward examination of current data.3 With inflation targets, in contrast, any judgement of the appropriateness of policy relies on understanding the determinants of future inflation and how the authorities view these determinants. Inflation targeting thus depends on the dissemination of the data on the basis of which the monetary authorities arrive at their policy decisions, as well as information on how the authorities interpret these data

Household demand for money in Poland : theory and evidence by Timothy D Lane ( Book )
4 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper examines the household demand for narrow money in Poland during the 1980s. At the time, there were shortages, but informal trade in both goods and foreign exchange was common, and holdings of foreign currency were substantial. Household money demand in this environment is first examined at the theoretical level: a representative household's holding of domestic and foreign money is analyzed in a cash-in-advance model in which domestic currency is needed to purchase goods in the official shops while either domestic or foreign currency can be used in the black market. This model gives rise to a formulation of money demand which is then estimated using household-level data from 1979 to 1988
Market discipline by Timothy D Lane ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Under what circumstances can market forces prevent unsustainable borrowing? Effective market discipline requires that capital markets be open, that information on the borrower's existing liabilities be readily available, that no bailout be anticipated, and that the borrower respond to market signals. This paper explores the implications of these conditions, and reviews some relevant empirical evidence
Fiscal constraints on market-oriented reform in a socialist economy by Timothy D Lane ( Book )
4 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper develops a simple two-sector model of a socialist economy, in which government revenues required for servicing external debt are obtained from taxation of the socialized sector and from import taxes. Wages and employment in the socialized sector are the outcome of Nash bargaining between the government and and import-competing labor-dominated state enterprise with domestic market power. The effects of trade liberalization, demonopolization, technical improvements, and limitations on labor's bargaining power are examined, and the implications for privatization are considered. It is shown that some combination of tax reform and debt reduction may be a precondition for market-oriented reforms

Economic and monetary integration and the aggregate demand for money in the EMS by Jeroen J. M Kremers ( Book )
7 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study shows that the aggregate demand for M1 in a group of countries participating in the Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM) of the European Monetary System can be expressed as a stable function of ERM-wide income, inflation, interest rates, and the exchange rate of the European Currency Unit (ECU) vis-a-vis in U.S. dollar. A notable feature of the model is the rapid elimination of monetary disequilibria, in contrast with most single-country estimates which tend to find implausibly slow adjustment. These results are suggestive: if robust, they would indicate that, even at the present stage of economic and monetary integration, a European central bank could, in principle, implement monetary control more effictively than the individual national central banks
Aid and fiscal management by Aleš Bulíř ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper focuses on the macroeconomic aspects of fiscal management in aid-receiving countries. Despite the declining share of aid in budgets of donor countries, aid continues to play an important role in many developing countries. The paper first discusses the implications of aid in the economy as a whole and highlights the possibility of Dutch-disease effects of aid. Second, it discusses the implications of aid for short-term fiscal policy management?in particular, how actual or anticipated changes in aid receipts should be reflected in government spending
Market liberalization policies in a reforming socialist economy by Elias Dinopoulos ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper presents a model of a socialist economy, incorporating bargaining over wages and employment in the socialized sector, efficiency wages in the non-socialized sector, and shortages which are reflected in the black market. The model is used to analyze the implications of liberalization policies, including trade liberalizationk, an administered price increase, and permission for increased direct foreign investment. The results suggest, among other things, that reforms may have different effects under different trade regimes; that small price reforms may have perverse effects; and that foreign investment in a shortage economy may be immiserizing

Wage controls and employment in a socialist economy by Timothy D Lane ( Book )
3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wage controls have been an important element of several of the stabilization programs recently introduced in reforming socialist economies. In some cases, the controls have been placed on each state enterprise's total wage bill, rather than on the wage rate paid. Such an income policy would be expected to have a dampening effect on employment, but this has not generally occured; on the contrary, declines in employment in state enterprises have typically been much less than the associated declines in output. This paper presents a simple model of a labor-managed enterprise which offers an explanation of the behavior of wage and employment under such an incomes policy
