Behavioral simulation methods in tax policy analysis by Martin S Feldstein( file )
16 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,515 libraries worldwide
These thirteen papers and accompanying commentaries are the first fruits of an ongoing research project that has concentrated on developing simulation models that incorporate the behavioral responses of individuals and businesses to alternative tax rules and rates and on expanding computational general equilibrium models that analyze the long-run effects of changes on the economy as a whole. The principal focus of the project has been on the microsimulation of individual behavior. Thus, this volume includes studies of individual responses to an over reduction in tax rates and to changes in the

Economic and financial crises in emerging market economies by Martin S Feldstein( file )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,500 libraries worldwide
In the late 1990s, economic and financial crises raged through East Asia, devastating economies that had previously been considered among the strongest in the developing world. The crises eventually spread to Russia, Turkey, and Latin America, and impacted the economies of many industrialized nations as well. In today's increasingly interdependent world, finding ways to reduce the risk of future crises?and to improve the management of crises when they occur?has become an international policy challenge of paramount importance. This book rises to that challenge, presenting accessible papers and
The costs and benefits of price stability by Martin S Feldstein( file )
18 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 1,487 libraries worldwide
In recent years, the Federal Reserve and central banks worldwide have enjoyed remarkable success in their battle against inflation. The challenge now confronting the Fed and its counterparts is how to proceed in this newly benign economic environment: Should monetary policy seek to maintain a rate of low-level inflation or eliminate inflation altogether in an effort to attain full price stability?. In a seminal article published in 1997, Martin Feldstein developed a framework for calculating the gains in economic welfare that might result from a move from a low level of inflation to full price

The distributional aspects of social security and social security reform by Martin S Feldstein( file )
13 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,314 libraries worldwide
Social security is the largest and perhaps the most popular program run by the federal government. Given the projected increase in both individual life expectancy and sheer number of retirees, however, the current system faces an eventual overload. Alternative proposals have emerged, ranging from reductions in future benefits to a rise in taxrevenue to various forms of investment-based personal retirement accounts.As this volume suggests, the distributional consequences of these proposals are substantially different and may disproportionately affect those groups who depend on social security t
Risk aspects of investment-based social security reform ( file )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,304 libraries worldwide
<DIV>Our current social security system operates on a pay-as-you-go basis; benefits are paid almost entirely out of current revenues. As the ratio of retirees to taxpayers increases, concern about the high costs of providing benefits in a pay-as-you-go system has led economists to explore other options. One involves "prefunding," in which a person's withholdings are invested in financial instruments, such as stocks and bonds, the eventual returns from which would fund his or her retirement. The risks such a system would introduce-such as the volatility in the market prices of investment assets-are the focus of this offering from the NBER. Exploring the issues involved in measuring risk and developing models to reflect the risks of various investment-based systems, economists evaluate the magnitude of the risks that both retirees and taxpayers would assume. The insights that emerge show that the risk is actually moderate relative to the improved return, as well as being balanced by the ability of an investment-based system to adapt to differences in individual preferences and conditions.</DIV>

The result is a volume of essays that range from monetary policy to productivity development, from population change to international trade
Handbook of public economics by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
60 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 1,228 libraries worldwide
The Field of Public Economics has been changing rapidly in recent years, and the sixteen chapters contained in this Handbook survey many of the new developments. As a field, Public Economics is defined by its objectives rather than its techniques and much of what is new is the application of modern methods of economic theory and econometrics to problems that have been addressed by economists for over two hundred years. More generally, the discussion of public finance issues also involves elements of political science, finance and philosophy. These connections are evidence in several of the cha
International economic cooperation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
24 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,149 libraries worldwide
"A readable, balanced, and provocative view of the prospects for fruitful international economic cooperation. The papers are realistic: each discusses the difficulties involved in reaching cooperative solutions or procedures as well as the benefits of doing so. The discussion among the conference participants is lively, interesting, and insightful."--William H. Branson, Princeton University
American economic policy in the 1980s by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 1,013 libraries worldwide
The policy changes he introduced included reallocation of public spending and serious reforms in the tax system.

Taxes and capital formation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
14 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 814 libraries worldwide
Economists have long recognized the importance of capital accumulation for productivity and economic growth. The National Bureau of Economic Research is currently engaged in a study of the relationship between such accumulation and taxation policies, with particular focus on saving, risk-taking, and corporate investment in the United States and abroad. The papers presented in Taxes and Capital Formation are accessible, nontechnical summaries of fourteen individual research projects within that study. Complete technical reports on this research are published in a separate volume, The Effects of

The effects of taxation on multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( file )
14 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 660 libraries worldwide
The tax rules of the United States and other countries have intended and unintended effects on the operations of multinational corporations, influencing everything from the formation and allocation of capital to competitive strategies. The growing importance of international business has led economists to reconsider whether current systems of taxing international income are viable in a world of significant capital market integration and global commercial competition
Taxing multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( file )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 659 libraries worldwide
In the increasingly global business environment of the 1990s, policymakers and executives of multinational corporations must make informed decisions based on a sound knowledge of U.S. and foreign tax policy. Written for a nontechnical audience, Taxing Multinational Corporations summarizes the up-to-the-minute research on the structure and effects of tax policies collected in The Effects of Taxation on Multinational Corporations. The book covers such practical issues as the impact of tax law on U.S. competitiveness, the volume and location of research and development spending, the extent of for
Empirical foundations of household taxation by Martin S Feldstein( file )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 619 libraries worldwide
Tax policy debates?and reforms?depend heavily on estimates of how alternative tax rules would affect behavior. Yet there is considerable controversy about the key empirical links among tax rates, household decisions, and revenue collections. The nine papers in this volume exploit the substantial variation in U.S. tax policy during the last two decades to investigate how taxes affect a range of household behavior, including labor-force participation, saving behavior, choice of health insurance plan, choice of child care arrangements, portfolio choice, and tax evasion. They also present new anal
