This publication sets out the Global Economic Model (GEM), a new multicountry macroeconomic model developed by IMF research department staff, based on an explicit microeconomic framework. The paper explains how GEM differs from its predecessor model Multimod, outlines how its new features can improve IMF policy analysis, and discusses three simulation exercises completed
Financial integration and real activity by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
Northern star : Canada's path to economic prosperity by Vladimir Klyuev( Book )
15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
Robust GDP growth, declining unemployment, low and stable inflation, and a string of fiscal and current account surpluses: these outcomes in Canada owe much to sound macroeconomic policies, as well as to a favorable external environment. This book focuses on these policies and the economy's salient features, including its close trade integration with the United States, large commodity sector, and substantial decentralization and regional diversity. It outlines what is unique about the Canadian experience and sheds light on policies and philosophies that can be applied in other economies.--Publisher's description
Post-bubble blues : how Japan responded to asset price collapse by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
20 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 218 libraries worldwide
In this volume, a team from the International Monetary Fund examines the causes of the lingering economic problems of Japan, the crisis in its banking system, the reasons for weak business investment, and the government's efforts to kick-start the economy through a series of stimulus packages
Managing complexity : economic policy cooperation after the crisis by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 172 libraries worldwide
Structural change in Japan : macroeconomic impact and policy challenges by International Monetary Fund( Book )
10 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 155 libraries worldwide
This volume is based on a seminar on structural change in Japan held in early 1997 and chaired by the IMF's First Deputy Managing Director, Stanley Fischer. The seminar provided a forum for the IMF staff to discuss their views on the Japanese economy with a distinguished list of outside experts. Discussion of the day-to-day management of the standard levers of fiscal and monetary policy is interlinked with consideration for the more deep-seated structural issues
R & D spillovers and global growth by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
22 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 115 libraries worldwide
Abstract: We examine the growth promoting roles of R & D, international R & D spillovers, and trade in a world econometric model. A country can raise its total factor productivity by investing in R & D. But countries can also boost their productivity by trading with other countries that have large stocks of knowledge from their cumulative R & D activities. We use a special version of MULTIMOD that incorporates R & D spillovers among industrial countries and from industrial countries to developing countries. Our simulations suggest that R & D, R & D spillovers, and trade play important roles in boosting growth in industrial and developing countries
Is regionalism simply a diversion? : evidence from the evolution of the EC and EFTA by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
28 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 114 libraries worldwide
This paper considers the impact on trade of preferential arrangements in Europe since the 1950s. Using a first difference version of the gravity model, we find that the EC and EFTA altered the pattern of international trade. We also find evidence of trade diversion in several cases, notably that of the EC in the 1960s
The morning after : explaining the slowdown in Japanese growth in the 1990s by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
26 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 113 libraries worldwide
This paper uses a VAR to investigate four possible explanations of the extended slump in Japanese economic activity over the 1990s: the absence of bold and consistent fiscal stimulus; the limited room for expansionary monetary policy due to a liquidity trap; overinvestment and debt overhang; and disruption of financial intermediation. The results indicate that all of these factors played a role, but that the major explanation is disruption in financial intermediation, largely operating through the impact of changes in domestic asset prices on bank lending
Mr. Ricardo's great adventure : estimating fiscal multipliers in a truly intertemporal model by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
We estimate tax multipliers in a "Blanchard-Yaari" consumption model where Ricardian equivalence is broken because the private sector discounts the future at a faster rate than the real rate of interest. The model fits U.S. data since 1955 extremely well-entailing a discount wedge of around 20 percent a year and fiscal multipliers of 0.15-0.4-depending on the permanence of the change in taxes/transfers, and is much superior to one that assumes some consumers are fully Ricardian and others follow simple rules of thumb. The implied high private sector rate of discount has wide implications for policymakers
Shocking aspects of Canadian labor markets by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
16 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 25 libraries worldwide
We analyze the flexibility of the Canadian labor market across provinces in both an interand intra-national context using macroeconomic data on employment, unemployment, participation, and (for Canada) migration and real wages. We find that Canadian labor markets respond in a similar manner to their U.S. counterparts and are more flexible than those in major euro area countries. Within Canada, the results indicate that labor markets in Ontario and provinces further west are more flexible, particularly with regard to migration, while those further east are less so
Energy, the exchange rate, and the economy : macroeconomic benefits of Canada's oil sands production by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
This paper describes potential benefits from Canada's expanding oil sands production, higher energy exports, and further improvements in the terms of trade. Contrary to the previous Canadian exchange rate literature, this paper finds that both energy and nonenergy commodity prices have an influence on the Canadian dollar, and some upward pressure on the exchange rate would therefore be expected. Model results suggest, however, that the impact on other tradable goods exports is limited
Spillovers across NAFTA by A Swiston( Book )
11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
This paper examines linkages across North America by estimating the size of spillovers from the major regions of the world-the United States, euro area, Japan, and the rest of the world-to Canada and Mexico, and decomposing the impact of these spillovers into trade, commodity price, and financial market channels. For Canada, a one percent shock to U.S. real GDP shifts Canadian real GDP by some 3/4 of a percentage point in the same direction- with financial spillovers more important than trade in recent decades. Thus, a large proportion of the reduction in Canadian output volatility since the 1980s can be accounted for by the "Great Moderation" in U.S. growth. Before 1996, domestic volatility in Mexico swamped the contribution of external factors to the business cycle. After 1996, the response of Mexican GDP is 11/2 times the size of the U.S. shock-"when the U.S. sneezes, Mexico catches a cold". These spillovers are transmitted through both trade and financial channels
Today versus tomorrow : the sensitivity of the non-oil current account balance to permanent and current income by Alun H Thomas( Book )
14 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 11 libraries worldwide
This paper applies the Permanent Income Model to the non-oil current accounts of the major oil exporters to assess the extent to which national consumption decisions in these countries are made on the basis of permanent versus current income. A test of whether the return on oil wealth and oil balance coefficients sum to unity is accepted for all specifications that adjust the return on wealth for future population changes. For oil-exporting countries outside Africa, around half of the fluctuations in the private sector non-oil balance are driven by considerations of changes in permanent income
Credit matters : empirical evidence on U.S. macro-financial linkages by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
14 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
This paper develops a framework for analyzing macro-financial linkages in the United States. We estimate the effects of a negative shock to banks' capital/asset ratio on lending standards, which in turn affect consumer credit, mortgages, and corporate loans, and the corresponding components of private spending (consumption, residential investment and business investment). In addition, our empirical model allows for feedback from spending and income to bank capital adequacy and credit. Hence, we trace the full credit cycle. An exogenous fall in the bank capital/asset ratio by one percentage point reduces real GDP by some 1 1/2 percent through its effects on credit availability, while an exogenous fall in demand of 1 percent of GDP is gradually magnified to around 2 percent through financial feedback effects
On impatience and policy effectiveness by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
An increasing body of evidence suggests that the behavior of the economy has changed in many fundamental ways over the last decades. In particular, greater financial deregulation, larger wealth accumulation, and better policies might have helped lower uncertainty about future income and lengthen private sectors' planning horizon. In an overlapping-generations model, in which individuals discount the future more rapidly than implied by the market rate of interest, we find indeed evidence of a falling degree of impatience, providing empirical support for this hypothesis. The degree of persistenc
Leverage? What leverage? a deep dive into the U by A Bhatia( Book )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This paper questions the view that leverage should have forewarned us of the global financial crisis of 2007-09, pointing to several gearing indicators that were neither useful portents of the onset of the crisis nor of its ferocity. Instead it shows, first, that the use of ill-suited collateral in the secured funding operations of U.S.-based investment banks was the fatal link between the collapse of structured finance and the global malfunction of funding markets that turbocharged the downdraft; and, second, that this insight (and others) can be decrypted from the Flow of Funds Accounts of t
Macroeconomic model spillovers and their discontents by Tamim A Bayoumi( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The Great Recession underlined that policies in some countries can have profound spillovers elsewhere. Sadly, the solution of simulating large macroeconomic models to measure these spillovers has been found wanting. Typical models generate lower international correlations of output and financial asset prices than are seen in even pre-crisis data. Imposing higher financial market correlations creates more reasonable cross-country spillovers, and is likely to become the norm in policy modeling despite weak theoretical underpinnings, as is already true of sticky wages. We propose using event stud
