Most widely held works by David Miles
The economics of public spending( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work investigates the extent of government involvement in the economy and its rationale, tracing its historical record. The book unites articles previously published in "Fiscal Studies", each one addressing a different area of expenditure and written by an economist with an international reputation in that field. Both the data and the relevant theory are analysed and an introduction investigates the overall role of the public sector, discussing the general theory of public expenditure
Macroeconomics : understanding the wealth of nations by David K Miles( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revised and updated edition of a very successful macroeconomics textbook. The authors deal with sophisticated issues using advanced economic theory, but in a manner that is accessible to anyone taking a single course in macroeconomics. They begin with real-world economic issues, and describe why these matter, before embarking on economic theory, ensuring that readers emerge with a good practical understanding of the global economy and how economists think about it

Optimal portfolio allocation for corporate pension funds by David McCarthy( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We model the asset allocation decision of a stylized corporate defined benefit pension plan in the presence of hedgeable and unhedgeable risks. We assume that plan fiduciaries--who make the asset allocation decision--face non-linear payoffs linked to the plan's funding status because of the presence of pension insurance and a sponsoring employer who may share any shortfall or pension surplus. We find that even simple asymmetries in payoffs have large and highly persistent effects on asset allocation, while unhedgeable risks exert only a small effect. We conclude that institutional details are crucial in understanding DB pension asset allocation

Optimal bank capital by David K Miles( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper reports estimates of the long-run costs and benefits of banks funding more of their assets with loss-absorbing capital, or equity. Measuring those costs requires careful consideration of a wide range of issues about how shifts in funding affect required rates of return and on how costs are influenced by the tax system; it also requires a clear distinction to be drawn between costs to individual institutions (private costs) and overall economic (or social) costs. Without a calculation of the benefits from having banks use more equity no estimate of costs--however accurate--can tell us what the optimal level of bank capital is. We use empirical evidence on UK banks to assess costs; we use data from shocks to incomes from a wide range of countries over a long period to assess risks to banks and how equity funding (or capital) protects against those risks. We find that the amount of equity capital that is likely to be desirable for banks to use is very much larger than banks have used in recent years and also higher than targets agreed under the Basel III framework
The relevance or otherwise of the central bank's balance sheet by David K Miles( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper explores the impacts on an economy of a central bank changing the size and composition of its balance sheet. One of the ways in which such asset purchases could influence prices and demand is via portfolio balance effects. We develop and calibrate a simple OLG model in which risk-averse households hold money and bonds to insure against risk. Central bank asset purchases have the potential to affect households' choices by changing the composition and return of their asset portfolios. We find that the effect is weak, and that its size depends on how fiscal policy is conducted. That is not to say that the big expansion of central bank balance sheets in recent years has been ineffective. Our finding is rather that the portfolio balance channel evaluated in an environment of normally functioning (though nonetheless incomplete) asset markets is weak. That is not inconsistent with the evidence that large-scale asset purchases by central banks since 2008 have had significant effects, because those purchases were made when financial markets were, to varying extents, dysfunctional. Nonetheless our results are relevant to those purchases because they may be unwound in an environment where financial markets are no longer dysfunctional

Should central banks provide reserves via repos or outright bond purchases? by Jochen Schanz( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of the financial crisis banks are likely to wish to hold far more highly liquid assets than before. Some of those liquid assets are likely to be held in the form of reserves at the central bank. We ask whether the central bank should provide these reserves by purchasing nominal, fixed-rate government bonds outright, or by repo-ing them in for a limited period. The key difference between these options is that with repos, the private sector retains the price risk associated with bonds, whereas this risk rests with the central bank if it purchases these bonds outright. There is a significant, practical policy issue for central banks here: should those central banks (most notably the Fed and the Bank of England) who built up a large stock of bonds during the QE operations, which were financed by creating reserves for commercial banks, expect to sell those bonds in due course or continue to hold a high proportion of them for a long period since the demand for reserves will be permanently higher? We develop and calibrate a simple OLG model in which risk-averse households hold money and bonds to insure against risk. We find that the composition of the central bank's assets should depend on how fiscal policy is conducted; but in general it has only a small impact on welfare
