Growth Convergence and Spillovers among Indian States What Matters? : What Does Not? by Sanjay Kalra( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Convergence and spillovers across countries and within countries are old, but recurrent policy concerns, and India is no exception to this rule. This paper examines convergence and spillovers across Indian states using non-stationary panel data techniques. Results on convergence among Indian states are generally found to be similar, but more nuanced, than previous studies. Generally speaking, there is evidence of divergence over the entire sample period, convergence during sub-periods corresponding to structural breaks, and club convergence. There is strong evidence of club convergence among the high- and low-income states; the evidence for middle-income states is mixed. Dynamic spillover effects among states are small

Current Account Imbalances in the Southern Euro Area by Florence Jaumotte( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The paper examines the causes, consequences, and potential cures of the large current account deficits in the southern euro area (SEA). These were mostly driven by a decline in private saving rates. But it was the European Monetary Union and the euro, which enabled these countries to maintain investment rates, and thus run larger current account deficits, by improving their access to the international pool of saving. The paper finds that the deficits in SEA in 2008 were larger than can be explained by fundamentals, though the situation varies substantially across countries. It also finds that although the global financial crisis has started to force some unwinding, the current account deficits are expected to remain high in the medium run, though again with substantial variation across countries. The paper argues these large external deficits pose risks to the economy and therefore matter, even in a currency union, and discusses some policy options to reduce them
Republic of Slovenia : selected issues by Piyaporn Sodsriwiboon( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
1. The spike in Slovenian inflation in 2007 and 2008 (an increase from 3.8 percent in 2007 to 5.5 percent in 2008, well above the euro-area average) has shown how structural bottlenecks may hamper Slovenian growth in the future. This paper investigates the role of supply factors (i.e., the increase in commodity prices and the catching-up effect) and demand-side effects (i.e., business cycle) in explaining this surge. Commodity related cost-push factors account for about 30 percent of the 2007-2008 surge in inflation while demand-pull factors explain approximately 37 percent; the remaining third is explained by other factors, including possibly labor cost pressure
Romania selected issues ( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This paper discusses the following important issues related to the Romanian economy: inflation and inflation expectations, the need to bolster expenditure efficiency, minimum wage policy, and financial sector development. Headline inflation has decreased markedly in Romania in recent years. Key factors in this trend were oil and food price developments and, in particular, the recent reduction in the VAT rate. Romania has undertaken a strong fiscal consolidation since 2010, which reduced expenditure to among the lowest in the region. Minimum wages in Romania have risen sharply, which could directly affect wage distribution and improve income inequality
Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia : selected issues by Hua Zhai( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Public infrastructure investment and economic growth in FYR Macedonia: FYR Macedonia faces a strong need for its transport infrastructure. Recognizing this, the government has significantly scaled up infrastructure investments in recent years. This paper attempts to quantify the short and medium term growth effects of major ongoing highway and railway projects using a simple model-based simulation approach. The standard neo-classical growth model is augmented with public capital to capture both demand and supply side effects of public infrastructure investments. The calibrated model suggests that the four ongoing highway and railway investments of 2–3 percent of GDP annually for 2014–18 are likely to raise real GDP growth rate by 0.5 percentage points on average for each year in 2014–20. Enhancing public investment efficiency can increase growth effects up to 0.8 percentage points. --
Cross-country report on minimum wages : selected issues by Faezeh Raei( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
In the past few years, many countries in Central Eastern and South Eastern Europe (CESEE) have increasingly turned to minimum wage policies. Throughout the region, statutory minimum wages had been in place at least since the early 1990s, but they were typically set at relatively moderate levels and affected relatively few workers. In the boom period from the mid-2000s to 2007/8, wages rose rapidly in general, including for low-wage earners without requiring recourse to active minimum wage policies. In the context of economic adjustment programs after the 2008/09 crisis, wages stagnated or were cut while minimum wages remained unchanged in most countries. With the economic recovery, wages are growing again but more slowly, raising particular concerns about the wellbeing of low-wage earners. In response, many governments in the region have started use minimum wage policies more prominently to support those on low incomes and address income inequality
