The flat tax by Robert E Hall( Book )

33 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On December 10, 1981, the authors of The Flat Tax proposed replacing the federal income tax with a low, simple, flat tax in an article in the Wall Street Journal. That article, titled "A proposal to simplify our tax system," displayed the iconic postcard that became the flat tax's symbol, meaning that an individual or business could file a federal income tax return on a postcard-sized form. -- from dust jacket

Whether in reaching retail customers, arranging B-to-B procurement, selling stocks and bonds, or any of a host of other applications, harnessing the Internet to your business model opens tremendous opportunities." "As the art of the deal goes online, a little science helps to separate successful business models from those that fall by the wayside. Entrepreneurs, managers, and analysts have no better guide than this new book by leading economist and business consultant Robert E. Hall. Grounded in auction theory and pricing strategy, Digital Dealing provides a set of principles for the deal engines that power e-markets."--Jacket

Tax reform," but for necessarily of the flat tax variety. These experts present a lively discussion of the pros and cons of the proposals for a flat tax, think through the likely effects of such a radical change, and make clear what can seem a confusing array of facts and figures
Forward-looking decision making : dynamic-programming models applied to health, risk, employment, and financial stability by Robert E Hall( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Individuals and families make key decisions that impact many aspects of financial stability and determine the future of the economy. These decisions involve balancing current sacrifice against future benefits. People have to decide how much to invest in health care, exercise, their diet, and insurance. They must decide how much debt to take on, and how much to save. And they make choices about jobs that determine employment and unemployment levels. Forward-Looking Decision Making is about modeling this individual or family-based decision making using an optimizing dynamic programming model." "Robert Hall first reviews ideas about dynamic programs and introduces new ideas about numerical solutions and the representation of solved models as Markov processes. He surveys recent research on the parameters of preferences - the intertemporal elasticity of substitution, the Frisch elasticity of labor supply, and the Frisch cross-elasticity. He then examines dynamic programming models applied to health spending, long-term care insurance, employment, entrepreneurial risk-taking, and consumer debt." "Linking theory with data and applying them to real-world problems. Forward-Looking Decision Making uses dynamic optimization programming models to shed light on individual behaviors and their economic implications."--Jacket

Aggregate job destruction and inventory liquidation by Robert E Hall( Book )

12 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a recession, jobs are destroyed and inventories are liquidated. I concentrate on the intertemporal mechanisms that result in economy-wide job destruction and inventory runoffs. Forces that raise the real interest rate -- especially temporarily -- also cause destruction and runoffs. I consider a model where the job destruction decision is made efficiently, will full consideration of the search costs imposed on discharged workers. I also consider a model of inefficient job destruction, where employers discharge workers who are paid fixed wages as long as they are employed. The impulse response functions for these models resemble those found in data for the United States. A shock that causes a jump in the expected real interest rate results in an immediate spike of job destruction and inventory liquidation, followed by a declining pattern of additional destruction and runoff
Why do some countries produce so much more output per worker than others? by Robert E Hall( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Output per worker varies enormously across countries. Why? On an accounting basis, our analysis shows that differences in physical capital and educational attainment can only partially explain the variation in output per worker we find a large amount of variation in the level of the Solow residual across countries. At a deeper level, we document that the differences in capital accumulation, productivity, and therefore output per worker are driven by differences in institutions and government policies, which we call social infrastructure. We treat social infrastructure as endogenous, determined historically by location and other factors captured in part by language
Controlling the price level by Robert E Hall( Book )

12 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Governments determine the size of the unit of value just as they determine the length of the length and weight of physical units of measure. What are the different ways that a government can control the size of the unit of value, that is, control the price level? In general, the government designates a resource gold, paper currency, another country's currency and defines its unit of value as a particular amount of that resource. An interesting variant proposed by Irving Fisher in 1913 and implemented more recently in Chile is to alter the resource content of the unit to stabilize the price level. Another idea is to alter the interest rate paid on reserves in a way that stabilizes the price level
Labor-market frictions and employment fluctuations by Robert E Hall( Book )

9 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The labor market occupies center stage in modern theories of fluctuations. The most important phenomenon to explain and understand in a recession is the sharp decline in employment and jump in unemployment. This chapter for the Handbook of Macroeconomics considers explanations based on frictions in the labor market. Earlier research within the real business cycle paradigm considered frictionless labor markets where fluctuations in the volume of work effort represented substitution by households between work in the market and activities at home. A preliminary section of the chapter discusses why frictionless models are incomplete they fail to account for either the magnitude or persistence of fluctuations in employment. And the frictionless models fail completely to describe unemployment. The evidence suggests strongly that consideration of unemployment as a third use of time is critical for a realistic model. The two elements of a theory of unemployment are a mechanism for workers to lose or leave their jobs and an explanation for the time required for them to find new jobs. Theories of mechanism design or of continuous re-bargaining of employment terms provide the first. The theory of job search together with efficiency wages and related issues provides the second. Modern macro models incorporating these features come much closer than their predecessors to realistic and rigorous explanations of the magnitude and persistence of fluctuations
