The Monetary approach to the balance of payments by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
38 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 665 libraries worldwide
This book collects together the basic documents of an approach to the theory and policy of the balance of payments developed in the 1970s. The approach marked a return to the historical traditions of international monetary theory after some thirty years of departure from them - a departure occasioned by the international collapse of the 1930s, the Keynesian Revolution and a long period of war and post-war reconstruction in which the international monetary system was fragmented by exchange controls, currency inconvertibility and controls over international trade and capital movements

The Economics of exchange rates : selected studies by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
18 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 537 libraries worldwide
The studies deal with the determination of foreign exchange rates and the characteristics of the foreign exchange market. They extend frontiers in theory and test the implications against current and past data. Analysis is made of flexible exchange rates through a new approach the authors have developed, called the "asset-market approach." In a fresh departure from the bulk of economic literature, theory is combined with practical application in a clear, concise way that will be understood by readers with a basic understanding of economics. The first three chapters of the book present the doctrinal history leading to today's view of exchange rate deterioration, outline the authors' new approach, and integrate it with an anlaysis of macroeconomic policies. The remaining eight chapters examine in detail (theoretically and empirically) the various building blocks presented in the initial chapters

Functioning of the international monetary system by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
15 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 170 libraries worldwide
The fiftieth anniversary of the Bretton Woods Conference has surprisingly served as an opportunity to reappraise the role of the International Monetary Fund. Among the appraisals done outside the Fund, a popular theme has been the desirability of strengthening the Fund's role in overseeing the functioning of the international monetary system. Whatever the design of the exchange rate system and the arrangements for the provision of international liquidity, it is widely accepted that such oversight, if it is to be effective, must rest on a strong analytical foundation

International VAT harmonization : economic effects by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
14 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 54 libraries worldwide
This paper highlights key macroeconomic issues related to VAT harmonization. A model is developed which emphasizes the effects of changes in the profile of various taxes on international behavior. Dynamic simulations reveal that the macroeconomic and welfare implications of VAT harmonization, including conflicts of interest, depend critically on the tax system and the degree of subsitution governing temporal and intertemporal allocations. We also demonstrate that the effects of revenue-neutral tax conversions between income and consumption tax systems undertaken by a single country depend critically on international differences in behavior
International effects of tax reforms by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
16 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
This paper highlights the significance of open-economy considerations in the analysis of tax reforms. It focuses on domestic and international consequences of revenue-neutral conversion between income and value-added tax systems. The principal result is that the direction of changes in key macroeconomic variables consequent on such tax conversions depends critically on the durrent account position. For example, a conversion from an income to a value-added tax system lowers the world interest rate if the country adopting the reform runs a surplus in the current account of its balance of payments, and vice versa
From centrally-planned to market economies : the road from CPE to PCPE by Guillermo A Calvo( Book )
16 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 libraries worldwide
This paper deals with the early stages of transformation of centrally planned economies (CPEs) into market economies during which expectations play a key role. It focuses on the transitional phase during which the economy is not any more a CPE but has not yet become a market economy. During this phase the economy is referred to as a "previously centrally-planned economy" (PCPE). A simple model is developed to analyze the consequences of expected price liberalization. The CPEs undergoing transformation lack depth and breadth of financial markets. The analysis illustrates the benefits from an early development of such markets. It demonstrates the benefits from an early development of such markets. It demonstrates the cost of a fine-tuning strategy and the benefits from a quick implementation of price reform. The paper also examines means to reduce "liquidity overhang," and shows that they involve taxation of one form or another. The consequences of privatization are analyzed and the benefits from an early development of an effective tax system highlighted
Obstacles to transforming centrally-planned economies : the role of capital markets by Guillermo A Calvo( Book )
14 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
This paper identifies obstacles hindering the transformation of centrally-planned economies (CPEs) into well-functioning market economies. The analysis is motivated by the recent experience with economic transformation and restructuring in Eastern Europe and the U.S.S.R. The economic system in CPEs is highly distorted. Prices do not represent real social costs, incentives systems are absent, losses of unprofitable state-owned enterprises are automatically financed, legislations vital for the functioning of markets are not in place, private ownership and property rights are underdeveloped, bankruptcy laws are absent, markets are missing, shortages prevail and, occasionally, inflation is high. The obstacles identified relate to (i) anticipatory dynamics, (ii) monetary overhang and the budget, and (iii) underdeveloped credit markets. It is demonstrated that these obstacles inhibit the effectiveness of price reform, monetary and credit policies, and trade liberalization. The analysis focuses on various ways to remove the obstacles. In this regard, a special examination is made of the implications of cleaning the balance sheets of enterprises and banks from nonperforming loans, as well as ways to enhance credibility. In the absence of such measures, privatization will be difficult since the necessary information about creditworthiness of firms is lacking. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of sequencing, safety nets. and their associated obstacles
