Fiscal rules in India are they effective? by Willem H Buiter ( )
9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper, a chapter in the forthcoming Oxford University Press Handbook of the Indian Economy, edited by Chetan Ghate, considers India's experience with fiscal (responsibility) rules during the past decade. After reviewing the basic facts concerning public debt and deficits in India, the background and basic arithmetic of the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act, 2003 (FRBMA) are presented and commented upon. With the very small number of data points at our disposal, no formal statistical estimation and hypothesis testing about the efficacy of the rules can even be attempted. Instead we critically explore the outcomes of the FRBMA over the 5-year period of its operation, 2004/05-2008/09, using an eclectic but comprehensive metric comprising quantitative targets, qualitative strictures, transparency, integrity, and overall financial performance over the business cycle. We also briefly review fiscal responsibility legislation (and outcomes) at the state level. The evidence suggests that in recent years the fiscal space "vacated" by the states has been usurped by the central government. Finally, the recommendations of the 13th Finance Commission regarding a roadmap for fiscal consolidation are examined. We also outline a basic incentive compatible framework for state and central governments to hold each other accountable over agreed pre-determined targets

Decarbonisation strategies how much, how, where and who pays for [delta] [less than or equal-to] 2° celsius? by Urjit R Patel ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At a panel discussion at the London School of Economics (LSE) in early October, I said in my concluding remarks that while I was not optimistic about the likelihood of a robust global climate deal at Copenhagen, "there seemed to be a strong consensus in world capitals for a weak agreement." Well, I was more or less right. We ended up with something rather ineffectual: a less than unanimous declaratory announcement (of feeble aims), although they call it an accord; and, in any case, it is neither a treaty nor even a binding commitment underpinned in law. In fact, domestic politics and the recession have probably put paid to hopes for a precise emissions quota-focused treaty in the near term. At any rate, a legally binding multilateral document is hardly sufficient: emission outcomes even under the formally binding Kyoto Protocol with a built-in enforcement mechanism are widely perceived to have been inadequate -- intro (p.1)
Transactions costs or the costs of doing business : empirical estimates for some developing countries by D Lal ( Book )

International trade and internal organization by Urjit R Patel ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper integrates theories of internal organisation with a model of international trade. We add another dimension ù how decisions regarding which ideas or projects to accept are made ù to the standard trade framework. It is shown that asymmetry in the organisation of economies per se can be a source of comparative advantage and two-way trade. The framework in the paper is flexible enough to be incorporated in most international trade models (irrespective of market structure)

Nonlinear adjustment in real exchange rates and long run purchasing power parity further evidence ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The paper investigates, using a threshold autoregression model, the nature of nonlinear adjustments in real exchange rates (RERs) arising from the presence of transaction costs and uncertainty, and their implications for the testing of unit roots
Dynamics of inflation "herding" : decoding India's inflationary process by Gangadhar Darbha ( )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Compared to immediately preceding years, that is, its own recent history, India's inflation became unhinged (thereby reversing creditable performance) from as far back as 2006. The paper puts forward an empirical framework to analyze the time series and cross-sectional dynamics of inflation in India using a large panel of disaggregated sector prices for the time period, 1994/95 to 2010/11. This allows us to rigorously explore issues that have been, at best, loosely posed in policy debates such as diffusion or co-movement of inflation across sectors, role of common and idiosyncratic factors in explaining variation, persistence, importance of food and energy price changes to the overall inflation process, and contrast the recent experience with the past. We find, inter alia, that the current period of high inflation is more cross-sectionally diffused, and driven by increasingly persistent common factors in non-food and non-energy sectors compared to that in the 1990s; this is likely to make it more difficult for anti-inflationary policy to gain traction this time round compared to the past. The paper has also introduced a novel measure of inflation, viz., Pure Inflation Gauges (PIGs) in the Indian context by decomposing price movements into those on account of: (1) aggregate shocks that have equiproportional effects on all sector prices; (2) aggregated relative price effects; and (3) sector-specific and idiosyncratic shocks. If PIGs, in conjunction with our other findings, for example, on persistence had been used as a measure of underlying (pure) inflationary pressures, the monetary authorities may not have been sanguine regarding the timeliness of initiating anti-inflationary policies
