The political economy of Japanese monetary policy by Thomas F Cargill( file )
16 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Japanese and held by 1,912 libraries worldwide
In The Political Economy of Japanese Monetary Policy, Cargill, Hutchison, and Ito investigate the formulation and execution of monetary and financial policies in Japan within a broad technical, political, and institutional context. Their emphasis is on the period since the early 1970s, when the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates collapsed, and on how policies and institutions have shaped the modern Japanese economy. In addition to presenting basic themes, recent developments, and their own research findings, they review and integrate the large literature, considering theoretical arguments and empirical evidence
Governance, regulation, and privatization in the Asia-Pacific Region by Takatoshi Itō( file )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 1,684 libraries worldwide
Over the last twenty-five years, there has been an acceleration in the move from government regulation towards privatization. Governance, Regulation, and Privatization in the Asia-Pacific Region is the first thoroughgoing account of the relative success of the different approaches to privatization as undertaken in Korea, China, Australia, and Japan.In most contexts, privatization is expected to yield greater efficiency and cost effectiveness while avoiding the corruption and bloated budgets of government regulation or monopoly control. But broad-scale privatization, if ill designed, has also y
Fiscal policy and management in East Asia by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( file )
14 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 1,620 libraries worldwide
Managing fiscal policy--the revenues and spending of an individual nation--is among the most challenging tasks facing governments. Wealthy countries are constrained by complex regulation and taxation policies, while developing nations often face high inflation and trade taxes. In this volume, esteemed economists Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose, along with other leading experts, examine the problems and challenges facing public finance in East Asian developing countries as well as the United States and Japan. Fiscal Policy and Management in East Asia explores the inefficient tax systems of many d
International financial issues in the Pacific Rim global imbalances, financial liberalization, and exchange rate policy by Takatoshi Itō( file )
12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,552 libraries worldwide
The imbalanced, yet mutually beneficial, trading relationship between the US and Asia has long been one of the financial world's most puzzling mysteries. This work explains how this symbiotic relationship is able to exist despite the stark inequalities in the trade balance
Monetary policy with very low inflation in the Pacific Rim by Takatoshi Itō( file )
16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,489 libraries worldwide
Extremely low inflation rates have moved to the forefront of monetary policy discussions. In Asia, a number of countries?most prominently Japan, but also Taiwan and China?have actually experienced deflation over the last fifteen years. Monetary Policy with Very Low Inflation in the Pacific Rim explores the factors that have contributed to these circumstances and forecasts some of the potential challenges faced by these nations, as well as some potential solutions. The editors of this volume attribute low inflation and deflation in the region to a number of recent phenomena. Some of these episo

The role of foreign direct investment in East Asian economic development by Takatoshi Itō( file )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,451 libraries worldwide
The international flow of long-term private capital has increased dramatically in the 1990s. In fact, many policymakers now consider private foreign capital to be an essential resource for the acceleration of economic growth. This volume focuses attention on the microeconomic determinants and effects of foreign direct investment (FDI) in the East Asian region, allowing researchers to explore the overall structure of FDI, to offer case studies of individual countries, and to consider their insights, both general and particular, within the context of current economic theory
Changes in exchange rates in rapidly developing countries theory, practice, and policy issues by Takatoshi Itō( file )
12 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 1,435 libraries worldwide
The exchange rate is a crucial variable linking a nation's domestic economy to the international market. Thus choice of an exchange rate regime is a central component in the economic policy of developing countries and a key factor affecting economic growth. Historically, most developing nations have employed strict exchange rate controls and heavy protection of domestic industry-policies now thought to be at odds with sustainable and desirable rates of economic growth. By contrast, many East Asian nations maintained exchange rate regimes designed to achieve an attractive climate for exports an
Regional and global capital flows macroeconomic causes and consequences by NBER-East Asia Seminar on Economics( file )
8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,416 libraries worldwide
The volume of capital flows between industrial and developing countries has grown dramatically in the past decade and has become a major issue in a world that is increasingly "globalized." Here Takatoshi Ito and Anne O. Krueger, two leading experts on this topic, have assembled a group of scholars who address different types of capital flows--bank lending, bonds, direct foreign investment--and the implications they hold for economic performance. With its particular focus on the Asian financial crises, this work presents a new model for policy makers everywhere in thinking about the rol
Trade in services to the Asia-Pacific region by Takatoshi Itō( file )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1,409 libraries worldwide
In recent years the tremendous growth of the service sector?including international trade in services?has outstripped that of manufacturing in many industrialized nations. As the importance of services has grown, economists have begun to focus on policy issues raised by them and have tried to understand what, if any, differences there are between production and delivery of goods and services. This volume is the first book-length attempt to analyze trade in services in the Asia-Pacific region. Contributors provide overviews of basic issues involved in studying the service sector; investigate th
Growth and productivity in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( file )

Considering the examples of Australia and the Pacific Rim, Growth and Productivity in East Asia offers a contemporary explanation for national productivity that measures contributions not only from capital and labor, but also from economic activities and relevant changes in policy, education, and technology.Takatoshi Ito and Andrew K. Rose have organized a group of collaborators from several Asian countries, the United States, and other parts of the globe who ably balance both macroeconomic and microeconomic study with theoretical and empirical approaches. Growth and Productivity in East Asia

Trade and protectionism by Takatoshi Itō( file )
13 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and held by 1,308 libraries worldwide
During the first three decades following the Second World War, an increasingly open international trading system led to unprecedented economic growth throughout the world. But in recent years, that openness has been threatened by increased protectionism, regional trading arrangementsEurope 1992 and the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreementand setbacks in negotiations on the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade. In Trade and Protectionism, American and East Asian scholars consider the dangers of this trend for the world economy and especially for East Asian countries. The authors look at the cur
Regionalism versus multilateral trade arrangements by Takatoshi Itō( file )
13 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,288 libraries worldwide
There is no doubt that the open multilateral trading system after World War II was a key ingredient in the rapid economic development of the entire world. Especially in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, and Taiwan, exports increased dramatically both in absolute terms and as a percentage of GNP. In the 1980s, however, preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) began to emerge as significant factors affecting world trade. This volume contains thirteen papers that analyze the tensions between multilateral trading systems and preferential trade arrangements and the impact of these tensions on East Asia
A vision for the world economy openness, diversity, and cohesion by Robert Z Lawrence( file )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,208 libraries worldwide
As the twentieth century comes to a close, technological changes, corporate strategies, and international market pressures are undermining the traditional separation between the domains of international and domestic policy. Indeed almost every aspect of domestic policy has international ramifications. The challenge to international governance holds both perils and promise. Attempts to reassert national autonomy or to rely exclusively on competition to resolve international tension could fragment the global economy, producing inferior outcomes for all or most nations. But the promise lies in the possibility of creating a global community able to balance the objectives of openness, diversity, and cohesion
The Japanese economy by Takatoshi Itō( Book )
24 editions published between 1992 and 1996 in English and held by 1,030 libraries worldwide
The political economy of tax reform by Takatoshi Itō( Book )
13 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and held by 608 libraries worldwide
The rapid emergence of East Asia as an important geopolitical-economic entity has been one of the most visible and striking changes in the international economy in recent years. With that emergence has come an increased need for understanding the problems of interdependence. As a step toward meeting this need, the National Bureau of Economic Research joined with the Korea Development Institute to sponsor this volume, which focuses on the complexities of tax reform in a global economy. Experts from Taiwan, Korea, the Philippines, Japan, and Thailand, as well as the United States, Canada, and Israel examine the major tax programs of the 1980s and their domestic and international economic effects. The authors provide overviews, country studies, and analyses of the effect of taxes on specific economic behavior, including saving and economic growth. The overviews include an examination of the link between taxes and domestic capital formation in open economies, and a look at the similarities and differences in the tax structure of eight East Asian countries. Other papers address broad issues related to tax policy and economic performance. Contributors evaluate the effects of changing the marginal tax rate on income from capital; analyze the relation between Korea's tax structure and its rate of economic growth; study the impact of tax reform and the aging Japanese population on savings; compare and contrast the gift and estate tax systems of the United States and Japan; and examine whether the tax systems of Korea and Taiwan, particularly the taxation of foreign capital, distort resource allocation. Studies of the political and economic interactions that underlie tax reform in the United States, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan reveal that in au of these countries domestic political considerations were far more important than international issues when deciding on tax reforms. Economists, policymakers, and members of the business community will benefit from these studies
Financial deregulation and integration in East Asia by Takatoshi Itō( file )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 585 libraries worldwide
The increased mobility and volume of international capital flows is a striking trend in international finance. While countries worldwide have engaged in financial deregulation, nowhere is this pattern more pronounced than in East Asia, where it has affected in unanticipated ways the behavior of exchange rates, interest rates, and capital flows. In these thirteen essays, American and Asian scholars analyze the effects of financial deregulation and integration on East Asian markets. Topics covered include the roles of the United States and Japan in trading with Asian countries, macroeconomic pol
The rise of China and structural changes in Korea and Asia by Takatoshi Itō( file )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 440 libraries worldwide
The rise of China and its integration with the rest of the world is probably one of the most important developments in today's global economy, but what impacts has China's rise had on the neighboring economies of East Asia? This book brings together research for those who wish to understand China's rise and policy challenges
Financial policy and central banking in Japan by Thomas F Cargill( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 372 libraries worldwide
Annotation Japan's financial institutions and policy underwent remarkable change in the past decade. The country began the 1990s with a heavily regulated financial system managed by an unchallenged Ministry of Finance and ended the decade with a Big Bang financial market reform, a complete restructuring of its regulatory financial institutions, and an independent central bank. These reforms have taken place amid recession and rising unemployment, collapsing asset prices, a looming banking crisis, and the lowest interest rates in the industrial world.This book analyzes how the bank-dominated financial system--a key element of the oft-heralded "Japanese economic model"--broke down in the 1990s and spawned sweeping reforms. It documents the sources of the Japanese economic stagnation of the 1990s, the causes of the financial crisis, the slow and initially limited policy response to banking problems, and the reform program that followed. It also evaluates the new financial structure and reforms at the Bank of Japan in light of the challenges facing the Japanese economy. These challenges range from conducting monetary policy in a zero-interest rate environment characterized by a "liquidity trap" to managing consolidation in the Japanese banking sector against the backdrop of increasing international competition
