Economics and marijuana : consumption, pricing and legalisation by Kenneth W Clements( Book )
17 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
"Do marijuana users cut back on consumption when the price rises? To what degree is marijuana consumption related to drinking and tobacco usage? What would happen if marijuana were legalised and taxed in the same way as alcohol and tobacco? Is marijuana priced in a similar way to other goods? Economics and Marijuana deals with these and other questions by drawing on a rich set of data concerning the consumption and pricing of marijuana in Australia, a country where the drug has been decriminalised in some, but not all, states. The book applies the economic approach to drugs to analyse consumption, pricing and the economics of legalising the use of marijuana. The result is a fascinating analysis of this widely used, but little understood illicit drug that provides much needed information and policy advice for a wide range of readers, including economists, policy makers and health professionals"--Provided by publisher
Currencies, commodities and consumption : measurement and the world economy by Kenneth W Clements( Book )
14 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 233 libraries worldwide
"Currency values, prices, consumption and incomes are at the heart of the economic performance of all countries. In order to make a meaningful comparison between one economy and another, economists routinely make use of purchasing power parity (PPP) exchange rates, but whilst PPP rates are widely used and well understood they take a lot of effort to produce and suffer from publication delays. Currencies, Commodities and Consumption analyses the strengths and weaknesses of two alternatives to PPP. Firstly, the so-called 'Big Mac Index' which uses hamburger prices as a standard of measurement and secondly, a less well known technique which infers incomes across countries based on the proportion of consumption devoted to food. Kenneth Clements uses international macroeconomics, microeconomic theory and econometrics to provide researchers and policy makers with insights into alternatives to PPP rates and make sense of the ongoing instability of exchange rates and commodity prices"--
Applied demand analysis : results from system-wide approaches by Henri Theil( Book )
5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 219 libraries worldwide
World consumption economics by Dongling Chen( Book )
5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 200 libraries worldwide
"This book extends research in consumption economics by identifying similarities and differences in consumption patterns in a large number of countries, both developed and less developed. Its approach is to carefully analyze a large body of data from a highly diverse group of countries to determine the extent to which a simple economic framework can be used to understand and explain consumer behavior. It uses data from more than 40 countries which range from the most affluent to the poorest in the world. The book pays particular attention to the consumption of food and to new simulation techniques applied to systems of demand equations."--Jacket
Recent developments in applied demand analysis : alcohol, advertising and global consumption by E. Antony Selvanathan( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 142 libraries worldwide
This book presents a number of recent developments in demand analysis. These include new, simple data-analytic techniques for analysing consumption data; new tests based on computer simulations for hypothesis testing; new methodological results on how to estimate demand equations; innovative applications to alcohol demand; extensions of the system-wide framework to analyse the effects of advertising on consumption; novel approaches to forecasting consumption patterns; and new theoretical results on aggregation of demand systems over consumers. All these innovations are extensively illustrated with the use of data from the OECD countries

Exchange Rates, Money and Relative Prices the Dollar-Pound in the 1920's by Kenneth W Clements( file )
5 editions published between 1979 and 1980 in English and held by 22 libraries worldwide
This paper applies the analytical framework of the monetary approach to exchange rate determination to the analysis of the Dollar/Pound exchange rate during the first part of the 1920's. The analysis uses monthly data up to the return of Britain to gold in 1925. The equilibrium exchange rate is shown to be influenced by both real and monetary factors which operate through their influence on the relative demands and supplies of monies. Special attention is given to examination of the relationship between exchange rates and the relative price of traded to non-traded goods. In the empirical work the prices of traded goods are proxied by the wholesale price indices and the prices of non-traded are proxied by wages. One of the key findings of the paper is the estimate of the elasticity of the exchange rate with respect to the relative price of traded to non-traded goods. This elasticity is estimated with high precision and is shown to be .415 which provides an independent measure of the relative share of spending on non-traded goods. This estimate is consistent with other estimates obtained in studies of expenditure shares. The paper concluded with a dynamic simulation which indicates the satisfactory quality of the predictive ability of the model
Exchange Rates in The 1920's a Monetary Approach ( file )
2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Current views about flexible exchange rate systems are based, to a large extent, on the lessons from the period of the 1920's during which many exchange rates were flexible. This paper re-examines the evidence from the perspective of the recently revived monetary approach (or more generally, asset-market approach) to the exchange rate. The analysis starts by developing a simple monetary model of exchange rate determination. The key characteristic of the model lies in the notion that, being a relative price of two monies, the equilibrium exchange rate is attained when the existing stocks of the two monies are willingly held. The equilibrium exchange rate is shown to depend on both real and monetary factors which operate through their influence on the relative demands and supplies of monies. The analysis then proceeds to examine the relationship between spot and forward rates for the Franc/Pound, Dollar/Pound and Franc/Dollar exchange rates and the results are shown to be consistent with the efficient market hypothesis. The monetary model is then estimated using monthly data and using the forward premium on foreign exchange as a measure of expectations. In addition to the single-equation ordinary-least-squares estimates, the various exchange rates are also estimated as a system using the mixed-estimation procedure which combines the sample information with prior information which derives from the homogeneity postulate and from known properties of the demand for money. The various results are shown to be consistent with the predictions of the monetary model
