The Economics of exchange rates : selected studies by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
23 editions published between 1978 and 2013 in English and held by 541 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

International VAT harmonization : economic effects by Jacob A Frenkel( Book )
16 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 60 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 )
18 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 59 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
