The Federal Reserve and the financial crisis by Ben Bernanke( Book )
31 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,289 libraries worldwide
In 2012, Ben Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, gave a series of lectures about the Federal Reserve and the 2008 financial crisis, as part of a course at George Washington University on the role of the Federal Reserve in the economy. In this unusual event, Bernanke revealed important background and insights into the central bank's crucial actions during the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Taken directly from these historic talks, "The Federal Reserve and the Financial Crisis" offers insight into the guiding principles behind the Fed's activities and the lessons to be learned from its handling of recent economic challenges. Bernanke traces the origins of the Federal Reserve, from its inception in 1914 through the Second World War, and he looks at the Fed post-1945, when it began operating independently from other governmental departments such as the Treasury. During this time the Fed grappled with episodes of high inflation, finally tamed by then-chairman Paul Volcker. Bernanke also explores the period under his predecessor, Alan Greenspan, known as the Great Moderation. Bernanke then delves into the Fed's reaction to the recent financial crisis, focusing on the central bank's role as the lender of last resort and discussing efforts that injected liquidity into the banking system. Bernanke points out that monetary policies alone cannot revive the economy, and he describes ongoing structural and regulatory problems that need to be addressed. Providing first-hand knowledge of how problems in the financial system were handled, "The Federal Reserve and the Financial Crisis" will long be studied by those interested in this critical moment in history

Inflation targeting : lessons from the international experience by Ben Bernanke( Book )
20 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 741 libraries worldwide
How should governments and central banks use monetary policy to create a healthy economy? Traditionally, policymakers have used such strategies as controlling the growth of the money supply or pegging the exchange rate to a stable currency. In recent years a promising new approach has emerged: publicly announcing and pursuing specific targets for the rate of inflation. This book is an in-depth study of inflation targeting. Combining penetrating theoretical analysis with detailed empirical studies of countries where inflation targeting has been adopted, the authors show that the strategy has clear advantages over traditional policies. They argue that the U.S. Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank should adopt this strategy, and they make specific proposals for doing so
Principles of economics by Robert H Frank( Book )
76 editions published between 1000 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 690 libraries worldwide
From the publisher: In recent years, innovative texts in mathematics, science, foreign languages, and other fields have achieved dramatic pedagogical gains by abandoning the traditional encyclopedic approach in favor of teaching a shorter list of core principles in depth. Two well-respected writers and researchers, Bob Frank and Ben Bernanke, have shown that the less-is-more approach affords similar gains in introductory economics. The authors introduce a coherent short list of core principles and reinforce them by illustrating and applying each in numerous contexts. With engaging questions, explanations and exercises, the authors help students relate economic principles to a host of everyday experiences such as going to the ATM or purchasing airline tickets. Throughout this process, the authors encourage students to become "economic naturalists:" people who employ basic economic principles to understand and explain what they observe in the world around them
Essays on the great depression by Ben Bernanke( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 619 libraries worldwide

The inflation-targeting debate ( Book )
19 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 364 libraries worldwide
"In The Inflation-Targeting Debate, a distinguished group of contributors explores the many underexamined dimensions of inflation targeting - its potential, its successes, and its limitations - from both theoretical and empirical standpoints, and for both developed and emerging economies. The volume opens with a discussion of the optimal formulation of inflation-targeting policy and continues with a debate about the desirability of such a model for the United States. The concluding chapters discuss the special problems of inflation targeting in emerging markets, including the Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary."--Jacket
Essays on the Great Depression by Ben Bernanke( Book )
24 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 261 libraries worldwide
"Ben S. Bernanke has gathered together his essays on why the Great Depression was so devastating and lasted so long. These essays include some of the most recent research on the international character of the crisis. This broad view shows us that while the Great Depression was an unparalleled disaster on a truly universal scale, some economies pulled up faster than others, and some made an opportunity out of a disaster. By comparing and contrasting the economic strategies and statistics of the world's nations as they struggled to survive economically, the fundamental lessons of macroeconomics stand out in bold relief against a background of immense human suffering. The essays in this volume present a uniquely coherent view of the economic causes and worldwide propagation of the depression." --Résumé de l'éditeur
The financial accelerator and the flight to quality by Ben Bernanke( Book )
18 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
Adverse shocks to the economy may be amplified by worsening credit-market conditions-- the financial 'accelerator'. Theoretically, we interpret the financial accelerator as resulting from endogenous changes over the business cycle in the agency costs of lending. An implication of the theory is that, at the onset of a recession, borrowers facing high agency costs should receive a relatively lower share of credit extended (the flight to quality) and hence should account for a proportionally greater part of the decline in economic activity. We review the evidence for these predictions and present new evidence drawn from a panel of large and small manufacturing firms
The financial accelerator in a quantitative business cycle framework by Ben Bernanke( Book )
14 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
Abstract: This paper develops a dynamic general equilibrium model that is intended to help clarify the role of credit market frictions in business fluctuations, from both a qualitative and a quantitative standpoint. The model is a synthesis of the leading approaches in the literature. In particular, the framework exhibits a financial accelerator, ' in that endogenous developments in credit markets work to amplify and propagate shocks to the macroeconomy. In addition, we add several features to the model that are designed to enhance the empirical relevance. First, we incorporate money and price stickiness, which allows us to study how credit market frictions may influence the transmission of monetary policy. In addition, we allow for lags in investment which enables the model to generate both hump-shaped output dynamics and a lead-lag relation between asset prices and investment, as is consistent with the data. Finally, we allow for heterogeneity among firms to capture the fact that borrowers have differential access to capital markets. Under reasonable parametrizations of the model, the financial accelerator has a significant influence on business cycle dynamics
Measuring monetary policy by Ben Bernanke( Book )
21 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
In Erweiterung der Beiträge von Bernanke und Blinder (1992), Strongin (1992) und Christiano, Eichenbaum und Evans (1994a, 1994b) stellen wir eine VAR-Methode zur Messung des jeweils vorherrschenden geldpolitischen Ansatzes vor. Wir entwickeln eine "semi-strukturelle" VAR, die aus Daten über Bankreserven und die Federal Funds Rate Informationen über die Geldpolitik extrahiert, aber die Beziehungen zwischen den makroökonomischen Variablen im System unrestringiert läßt. Die Methode integriert frühere VAR-gestützte Ansätze und kann verwendet werden, um diese Indikatoren zu vergleichen und zu bewerten. Sie eignet sich auch zur Konstruktion von Maßen über den Stand der Geldpolitik, welche die Schätzungen für die Zentralbankoperationen in jeder Periode in optimaler Weise berücksichtigt. Wir finden, daß unter den existierenden Ansätzen auf die Federal Funds Rate wirkende Schocks (Bernanke-Blinder) ein gutes Maß für die Politikinnovationen in den Perioden 1965-79 und 1988-94 darstellen. Für die gesamte Periode 1979-94 scheinen Schocks auf die Komponente der frei verfügbaren Reserven, die orthogonal zu den Gesamtreserven sind (Strongin), die beste Wahl zu sein. Wir entwickeln eine neues Maß für den Stand der Geldpolitik, welches gut mit qualitativen Indikatoren wie dem Boschen-Mills-Index (1991) übereinstimmt. Schocks auf unser Maß führen zu vernünftigen und präzis geschätzten dynamischen Reaktionen von Variablen wie reales GDP und GDP Deflator
What does the Bundesbank target? by Ben Bernanke( Book )
16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
Although its primary ultimate objective is price stability, the Bundesbank has drawn a distinction between its money-focus strategy and the inflation targeting approach recently adopted by a number of central banks. We show that, holding constant the current forecast of inflation, German monetary policy responds very little to changes in forecasted money growth; we conclude that the Bundesbank is much better described as an inflation targeter than as a money targeter. An additional contribution of the paper is to apply the structural VAR methods of Bernanke and Mihov (1995) to determine the optimal indicator of German monetary policy: We find that the Lombard rate has historically been a good policy indicator, although the use of the call rate as an indicator cannot be statistically rejected
The liquidity effect and long-run neutrality by Ben Bernanke( Book )
12 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 73 libraries worldwide
The propositions that monetary expansion lowers short-term nominal interest rates (the liquidity effect), and that monetary policy does not have long-run real effects (long-run neutrality), are widely accepted, yet to date the empirical evidence for both is mixed. We reconsider both propositions simultaneously in a structural VAR context, using a model of the market for bank reserves due to Bernanke and Mihov (forthcoming). We find little basis for rejecting either the liquidity effect or long-run neutrality. Our results are robust over the space of admissible model parameter values, and to the use of long-run rather than short-run identifying restrictions
Inflation forecasts and monetary policy by Ben Bernanke( Book )
12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 69 libraries worldwide
Proposals for inflation targeting' as a strategy for monetary policy leave open the important operational question of how to determine whether current policies are consistent with the long-run inflation target. An interesting possibility is that the central bank might target current private-sector forecasts of inflation, either those made explicitly by professional forecasters or those implicit in asset prices. We address the issue of existence and uniqueness of rational expectations equilibria when the central bank uses private-sector forecasts as a guide to policy actions. In a dynamic model which incorporates both sluggish price adjustment and shocks to aggregate demand and aggregate supply, we show that strict targeting of inflation forecasts is typically inconsistent with the existence of rational expectations equilibrium, and that policies approximating strict inflation-forecast targeting are likely to have undesirable properties. We also show that economies with more general forecast-based policy rules are particularly susceptible to indeterminacy of rational expectations equilibria. We conclude that, although private-sector forecasts may contain information useful to the central bank, ultimately the monetary authorities must rely on an explicit structural model of the economy to guide their policy decisions
