Handbook of public economics by Alan J Auerbach( Book )
48 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 929 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 chapters that follow. Public Economics is the positive and normative study of government's effect on the economy. We attempt to explain why government behaves as it does, how its behavior influences the behavior of private firms and households, and what the welfare effects of such changes in behavior are. Following Musgrave (1959) one may imagine three purposes for government intervention in the economy: allocation, when market failure causes the private outcome to be Pareto inefficient, distribution, when the private market outcome leaves some individuals with unacceptably low shares in the fruits of the economy, and stabilization, when the private market outcome leaves some of the economy's resources underutilized. The recent trend in economic research has tended to emphasize the character of stabilization problems as problems of allocation in the labor market. The effects that government intervention can have on the allocation and distribution of an economy's resources are described in terms of efficiency and incidence effects. These are the primary measures used to evaluate the welfare effects of government policy
International economic cooperation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
27 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 840 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 )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 737 libraries worldwide
The policy changes he introduced included reallocation of public spending and serious reforms in the tax system. Taxes were lowered and inflation was brought down, but the changes also produced a spiraling government debt. The sharpest post-World War II recession preceded nearly eight years of strong economic growth
Privatizing social security by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
23 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 674 libraries worldwide
The aging of the population will raise the cost of maintaining the existing pay-as-you-go tax financed system of social security pensions. Government actuaries estimate that the payroll tax rate would have to rise to more than 18 percent to maintain the current relation between benefits and lifetime earnings. To avoid such cost increases, the United States is now considering following the lead of other countries that have shifted from the pay-as-you-go method of financing pensions to systems based on mandatory saving during the working years. This book will be of interest to government policy makers and private pension experts, in addition to economists

The Effects of taxation on capital accumulation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
17 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 646 libraries worldwide
Research on capital formation has long been a major focus of studies sponsored by the National Bureau of Economic Research because of the crucial role of capital accumulation in the process of economic growth.

The economics of art museums ( Book )
22 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 577 libraries worldwide
Behavioral simulation methods in tax policy analysis by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
18 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 570 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
Taxes and capital formation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
18 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 526 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
Economic and financial crises in emerging market economies by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
27 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
Following each paper, personal statements from the major players give firsthand accounts of what really went on behind the scenes during the crises, giving us a rare glimpse into how international economic policy decisions are actually made. Finally, wide-ranging discussions and debates sparked by these papers and statements are summarized at the end of each section. The result is an indispensable overview of the key issues at work in these crises, written by the people who move markets and reshape economies, and accessible not just to economists and policymakers but also to educated general readers."--Jacket
International capital flows by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

The costs and benefits of price stability by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
22 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 356 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 effects of taxation on multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 347 libraries worldwide
This volume examines the effect of tax policy on international investment choices by presenting in-depth analyses of the interaction of international tax rules and the investment decisions of multinational enterprises. Ten papers assess the role of investment by multinational firms in the U.S. economy and the design of international tax rules for multinational investment; analyze channels through which international tax rules affect the costs of international business activities; and examine ways in which international tax rules affect financing decisions of multinational firms. As a group, the papers demonstrate that international tax rules have significant effects on firms' investment and other financing decisions. This state-of-the-art volume will be of interest to researchers in public finance and international economics and to policymakers concerned with tax policy and international investment issues
Risk aspects of investment-based social security reform ( Book )
16 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 340 libraries worldwide
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 a
Taxing multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( Book )

Empirical foundations of household taxation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
Despite decades of interest by scholars and policy makers in the effect of tax policy on household behavior, there is still considerable controversy about the key empirical links among tax rates, household behavior, and revenue collections. The eight papers in this volume present new statistical findings on how taxes affect a range of household decisions, including labor supply, saving, choice of health insurance plan, choice of child care arrangements, portfolio choice, and tax evasion. They also present new analytical results on the effects of different types of tax policy. All of this research relies on household-level data - drawn either from public-use tax return files provided by the U.S. Treasury or from large household-level surveys - to explore various aspects of the relationship between taxes and household behavior
