Debt and taxes by John H Makin( Book )
5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 782 libraries worldwide
No subject arouses - and perplexes - Americans more than debt and taxes. They are agreed about only one thing: they would like to rid themselves of both. It is a fantasy of course, as Benjamin Franklin knew when he observed in 1789 that "in this world nothing is certain but death and taxes." The only certainty Franklin neglected to mention was the lasting controversy that these confounding issues would always provoke

Exchange rate targets : desirable or disastrous? ( Book )
8 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 345 libraries worldwide
How can international monetary stability best be achieved? Through government intervention in setting exchange rates? Through greater international coordination of economic policy? In papers presented at an AEI conference on the eve of the 1986 meeting of the IMF and the World Bank, the contributors review the collapse of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates, the historic 1985 agreement by the Group of Five, and the question of whether fixed or flexible exchange rates would best help stabilize the international monetary system
Real tax reform : replacing the income tax by American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research( Book )

U.S. fiscal policy : its effects at home and abroad by John H Makin( Book )
8 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
Would reducing the federal budget deficit improve the trade balance? Does a move toward fixed exchange rates make sense when efforts to control budget deficits are under way? Can the United States conduct tax and budget policy without paying attention to its implications for the rest of the world? In two essays, John Makin traces the unusual path of U.S. fiscal policy in the first half of the 1980s. He finds lessons helpful to businesses and policymakers as the world economy becomes more interdependent and the international competition more intense. His major conclusion is that fiscal policy is a more potent countercyclival tool than monetary policy under flexible exchange rates. Stabilizing exchange rates would therefore require active coordination of fiscal policies as well as monetary coordination

A fiscal framework for analysis of interest rate behavior in open economies by John H Makin( file )
6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
This paper derives a reduced-form expression for an interestrate in an open economy by incorporating after tax covered interest parity conditions into a simple neo-classical macro model. The result clearly demonstrates that the relationship between an interest rate and variables used to explain it is conditional on income tax rates at home and abroad and presence or absence of capital gains tax treatment of foreign exchange gains or losses. Effects of non-indexation of tax treatment of depreciation and inventories may also play a role. Any change in effective tax rates over a sample period employed to estimate interest rate (or exchange rate) equations may cause deterioration in the fit of a fixed coefficient model. Efforts are underway to employ a random coefficients approach to address this problem
The level and volatility of interest rates in the United States : the roles of expected inflation, real rates, and taxes by John H Makin( file )
6 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
This paper attempts to demonstrate a need to expand the simple Fisherian view whereby changes in interest rates are explained largely by changes in expected inflation. It presents and tests a model of expected, after-tax real interest rate behavior which, together with a group of explanatory variables suggested by a structural model, takes full account of implications of a broad range of U.S. tax code provisions for behavior of interest rates. Determinants of interest rate volatility are also investigated. The model and results of empirical testing suggest:(1) why the measured impact on interest rates of changes in anticipated inflation has been below levels anticipated by many investigators; (2) how the measured impact on interest rates of explanatory variables is conditional on tax rates which may change over time; (3) larger than expected fiscal deficits have a moderate positive impact on interest rates (40 basis points per 100 billion annual rise for three-month Treasury bills) while lower than expected money growth may also raise interest rates (as iri the second quarter of 1981 when it did so by an estimated 24 basis points); (4) inflation uncertainty produces no significant impact on interest rates due to the econometric effect of including a measure of excess capacity; (5) an unexpected rise in money demand may be responsible for persistently higher interest rates during the first half of 1982 but during most of the 1960-82 period money supply shocks had a more powerful impact on interest rates
Exchange rates and taxes by John H Makin( file )
5 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 44 libraries worldwide
This paper demonstrates that different rates of taxation on interest income and exchange gains may bias results of hypothesis testing regarding critical aspects of exchange rate behavior. Two problems are discussed specifically. First, it is shown that omission of tax considerations may bias tests of the uncovered interest parity condition toward acceptance of a "risk premium" hypothesis, conditional on exchange market efficiency. Second it is shown that a rational solution for the exchange rate conditions the relationship between an exchange rate and its determinants on two regimes: (1) tax rates on interest income and foreign exchange gains and losses at home and abroad and (2) the degree of foreign exchange market intervention and sterilization of its effects on the monetary base practiced by central banks
Exchange rate determination with systematic and unsystematic policy regime changes : evidence from the yen/dollar rate by John H Makin( file )
6 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
This paper presents results of estimating an exchange rate equation in light of theoretical considerations regarding changes in sterilization and intervention policy and tax policy which imply that the coefficients in the equation will not behave as fixed parameters in a given sample period, as standard econometric practice assumes. We compare the results of ordinary least squares and a random coefficients model of the Japanese Yen-- U.S. dollar exchange rate during the floating period of July 1973 through June 1982. When systematic end of year policy changes affecting Japanese reserves are explicitly modeled, both OLS and the random coefficients model show increased explanatory power. The random coefficients model appears to be superior to OLS however; by allowing the coefficients to vary over time as required by the economic theory discussed above, estimates of the mean response coefficients for the floating period all have the hypothesized sign, and explanatory power is sharply increased
