Hedge funds and financial market dynamics( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hedge funds are collective investment vehicles, often organized as private partnerships and resident offshore for tax and regulatory purposes. Their legal status places few restrictions on their portfolios and transactions, leaving their managers free to use short sales, derivative securities, and leverage to raise returns and cushion risk. This paper considers the role of hedge funds in financial market dynamics, with particular reference to the Asian crisis
International capital markets : developments, prospects, and key policy issues by D. F. I Folkerts-Landau( Book )

Unemployment, investment and sectoral reallocation by Bankim Chadha( Book )

12 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a model of development of an economy comprised of a rural-agricultural sector and an urban-industrial sector. The interaction of investment with unemployment creates a channel for potentially divergent long-run outcomes. If the urban-industrial capital stock falls short of a threshold level, the urban-industrial sector will not develop. If the capital stock is high enough, there is a unique path by which it will develop. Between these two extremes is a region of indeterminacy where expectations can play a pivotal role in determining the long-run outcome

Economic restructuring, unemployment, and growth in a transition economy by Bankim Chadha( Book )

6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper develops a model of the process of reallocation of labor from the state sector to the private sector. When growth is exogenously determined, we show that in the initial stages of transition unemployment will rise over time. After a critical stage in the transition process, restructuring is accompanied by a decline in unemployment. When growth is endogenously determined, and human capital is acquired by learning-by-doing, we show that whether restructuring eventually occurs is determined by the level of human capital in the private sector and the rate of unemployment. The effects of various shocks and government policies in affecting the costs, speed, and eventual outcome of restructuring are analyzed

Growth, productivity, and the rate of return on capital by Charles F Adams( Book )

4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the ability of alternative classes of growth models to explain the historical experience of the U.S. economy. The potential returns to the U.S. from raising its investment rate in terms of both the level and growth rate of future output are then quantified. The long-run growth performance of the U.S. economy is found to be broadly consistent with the predictions of the neoclassical growth model. Endogenous growth models, which suggest a larger contribution of capital to growth and long-run effects of investment on the growth rate, do not seem to be supported by the data
Models of inflation and the costs of disinflation by Bankim Chadha( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper focuses on the output costs of disinflation. A model of inflation with both forward and backward elements seems to characterize reality. Such an inflation model is estimated using data for industrial countries, and the output costs of a disinflation path are calculated, first analytically in a simple theoretical model, then by simulation of a global, multi-region empirical model. The credibility of a preannounced path for money consistent with the lowest output losses is considered. An alternative, more credible poicy may be to announce an exchange rate peg to a low inflation currency

Real and nominal exchange rates in the long run by Charles F Adams( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper decompasses longer-run movements in (major) dollar real exchange rates into components associated with changes in nominal exchange rates and price levels, and their comovements. Though the decompositions suggest some permanent movements, they imply that there are large transitory components in real exchange rates. These transitory components in real exchange rates are found to be closely associated with those in nominal exchange rates. A stochastic version of Dornbusch's overshooting model--configured with representative parameter values for the United States and subjected to permanent nominal shocks--can rationalize these transitory comovements of nominal and real exchange rates as well as several other features of the decompositions
Wages, profitability, and growth in a small open economy by Bankim Chadha( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines issues raised by the evolution of a rapidly growing small open economy--Singapore--from a labor-intensive, low-technology production base to a capital-intensive, high-technology, knowledge-and-skills-intensive emphasis as it approached the limits of its resource constraints in the labor market. In order to analyze the process of restructuring a model of endogenous growth for a small open economy that is driven by increases in labor productivity from learning and that allows for the dynamic acquisition of comparative advantage is developed. In this framework the effects of various policies and exogenous shocks on the direction and pace of restructuring are investigated
Structural models of the dollar by Bankim Chadha( Book )

7 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper addresses several questions about the time series processes followed by dollar exchange rates. The stochastic process for exchange rates implied by stuctural models and the conditions under which they would be described by random walks are examined. Tests on the univariate time series for dollar exchange rates are undertaken to determine if there is evidence for departures from a random walk. Multiveriate tests examine whether longer-run movements in the dollar are linked to those in other economic variables, and whether deviations from these long-run relationships contain information for predicting exchange rte movements
Sustainability, premia, and the dollar by Bankim Chadha( Book )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper models the effects of foreign investors imposing a limit on the proportion of U.S. liabilities they are prepared to hold in their portfolios. Simulations show that actual premiums required on dollar assets implied by such a limit will be small. Nevertheless, such small premiums can play a quantitatively important role in preventing large buildups of claims on the United States. Moreover, the costs of such an imposed adjustment can be substantial in terms of private consumption, investment and output in the United States
On interpreting the random walk behavior of nominal and real exchange rates by Bankim Chadha( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The random walk property of exchange rates is frequently regarded as carrying strong implications for the kinds of shocks that have driven exchange rates and the models appropriate for analyzing their behavior. This paper conducts stochastic simulations of Dornbusch's (1976) sticky-price monetary model, calibrated for representative parameter values for the United States. It shows that the model is capable of generating time series for both real and nominal exchange rates that are statistically indistinguishable from random walks when all shocks are nominal
Are prices countercyclical? by Bankim Chadha( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the comovement of prices with the cyclical component of output. It argues that determining the cyclical behavior of prices by applying the same stationarity-inducing transformation to the levels of both output and prices, and examining the correlations of the result series, can be misleading. A more appropriate procedure is to examine the correlations between the rate of inflation and the level of the cyclical component of output. In post-war U.S. data the correlations between similarly transformed price and output data are consistently and often strongly negative, as reported recently by a number of authors as evidence of countercyclical price behavior. The rate of inflation, however, is consistently and usually strongly positively correlated with various measures of the cyclical component of output
Macroeconomics and famine by Bankim Chadha( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of the paper is to shift the focus of famine analysis away from food supply towares the macroeconomic determinants of food entitlement--ie., to the ability of individuals to purchase food. Towards this end, we develop a model of demonstrate how loose monetary and fiscal policies may give rise to famine even when there is no change description of the 1974 Bangladesh famine
A simulation model for financial programming by Richard C Barth( Book )

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper describes a simulation model that can serve a basis for a developing country growth-oriented adjustment program. The model has been designed to provide explicit links between fiscal, monetary and exchange rate policies and major macroeconomic variables. While the model is applied to an solved for the case of Turkey, its simplicity and flexibility make it sufficiently general to be applicable to a wide range of countries. The model integrates demand-determined output with a supply side that responds to policies which affect investment and it allows the relative shares of domestic and foreign factors of production to be determined by their relative prices. The model is solved using Lotus 1-2-3, software that is familiar to Fund economists and which allows the user to quickly evaluate alternative assumptions and policies
