Behavioral simulation methods in tax policy analysis by Martin S Feldstein( file )
15 editions published between 1983 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,347 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
The American economy in transition by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
22 editions published between 1980 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,278 libraries worldwide
This unusual volume marks the sixtieth anniversary of the National Bureau of Economic Research. In contrast to the technical and specialized character of most NBER studies, the current book is designed to provide the general reader with a broad and critical overview of the American economy. The result is a volume of essays that range from monetary policy to productivity development, from population change to international trade
The distributional aspects of social security and social security reform by Martin S Feldstein( file )
10 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,148 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 to avoid poverty in old age. Together, these studies persuasively show that appropriately designed investment-based social security reforms can effectively reduce the long-term burden of an aging society on future taxpayers, increase the expected future income of retirees, and mitigate poverty rates among the elderly
Risk aspects of investment-based social security reform by John Y Campbell( file )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 1,146 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 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

International economic cooperation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
22 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,067 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
Inflation, tax rules, and capital formation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
14 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 918 libraries worldwide
Inflation, Tax Rules, and Capital Formation brings together fourteen papers that show the importance of the interaction between tax rules and monetary policy. Based on theoretical and empirical research, these papers emphasize the importance of including explicit specifications of the tax system in such study
Privatizing social security by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
23 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 907 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
American economic policy in the 1980s by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
12 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 895 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
The Effects of taxation on capital accumulation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
16 editions published between 1987 and 2009 in English and held by 751 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 papers in this volume examine the influence of taxes on capital formation, with specific focus on the determinants of saving and the process of investment in plant and equipment
Taxes and capital formation by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
15 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 698 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

International capital flows by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 581 libraries worldwide
"International Capital Flows contains nontechnical background papers by eminent scholars and short essays by practitioners who have played key roles in the policy process and the private sector on the experience of capital flows to Latin America, Asia, and eastern Europe. This collection derived from materials presented at a National Bureau of Economic Research conference held in Woodstock, Vermont, in 1997 and is presented with a summary of the discussion at the conference. These papers discuss the role of banks, equity markets, and foreign direct investment in international capital flows, and the risks that investors and others face with these transactions
The costs and benefits of price stability by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 573 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 stability. The present volume extends that analysis, focusing on the likely costs and benefits of achieving price stability not only in the United States, but in Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom as well. The results show that even small changes in already low inflation rates can have a substantial impact on the economic performance of different countries, and that variations in national tax rules can affect the level of gain from disinflation
Economic and financial crises in emerging market economies by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 569 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."--BOOK JACKET

The effects of taxation on multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
13 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 558 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. In an attempt to quantify the effect of tax policy on international investment choices, this volume presents in-depth analyses of the interaction of international tax rules and the investment decisions of multinational enterprises. Ten papers assess the role played by multinational firms and their investment 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
Taxing multinational corporations by Martin S Feldstein( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 558 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
