Expanding membership of the European Union by Richard E Baldwin( Book )
22 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 355 libraries worldwide
This compelling volume, from the Centre for Economic Policy Research, examines the discussion surrounding expansion of the European Union (EU). The contributors address the key issues in the debate, including the implications of expansion for the global trading system, enlargement-related pressures to reform EU decision-making, and the economic consequences of membership for entrants. Using theoretical techniques to report results and insights, this book not only sheds light on the consequences of Austria, Finland and Sweden joining the
The great financial crisis in Finland and Sweden : the Nordic experience of financial liberalization ( Book )
10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Following World War II, Nordic countries were commonly regarded as successful and stable economies. This perception was, however, shattered in the early 1990s when Finland and Sweden encountered severe financial crises. This book explores the symptoms of financial crisis and their devastating effects
The great financial crisis in Finland and Sweden : the dynamics of boom, bust and recovery 1981-2000 by Lars Jonung( Book )
16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
This paper explores the anatomy of the boom, deep depression and recovery in the Finnish and Swedish economies in the period 1985-2000. These fifteen years are divided into three phases: (1) financial liberalization and the boom and the overheating of 1985-90, (2) the outbreak and spread of the crisis to all sectors of the economy in 1990-92, and (3) the recovery 1993-2000. The focus is on the interaction between financial market liberalization and general economic activity. For the boom phase, we examine how financial deregulation set off a process of credit expansion, asset price inflation, rapid growth in consumption and investment, an inflow of foreign capital, loss of foreign competitiveness, and speculation against the pegged exchange rates in both countries. For the bust phase, we describe a vicious circle of rising real rates of interest, falling asset prices (asset price deflation), financial fragility, exploding budget deficits and rising unemployment. Here we stress the role of monetary and fiscal policies first in creating and then in alleviating the crisis. Finally, we examine the recovery phase. Our comparative perspective reveals that Finland and Sweden followed a strikingly similar pattern of economic polices and macroeconomic performance. The two countries behaved as if they were "economic twins". A new economic order emerged after the financial liberalization and the boom-bust cycle based on the free flow of capital across borders, stronger central bank independence, and a convergence to the EU institutional framework in both countries

Measuring labour market flexibility in the OECD countries ( Article )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"This paper investigates the adjustment of employment to population shocks in 22 OECD countries over the period 1960-1997. Most of the countries have experienced significant population shocks during that period - due to migration and other reasons. We estimate the speed of adjustment parameter which is used as a measure of the functioning of the labour market. If the OECD countries are compared using this measure, it turns out that the Anglo Saxon countries clearly outperform the other (European) countries in terms of labour market adjustment. In the case of the Nordic countries, the results presented are the most extreme. In practically all OECD countries, the functioning of the labour market seems to have deteriorated over time. These observations seem to be helpful in explaining the behaviour of unemployment rates in the OECD area."--Editor
