Financial Markets, Money and the Real World (Paperback, New edition): Paul Davidson Financial Markets, Money and the Real World (Paperback, New edition)
Paul Davidson
R861 Discovery Miles 8 610 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Paul Davidson investigates why the 1990s was a decade of financial crises that almost precipitated a global market crash. He explores the reasons why the global economy still struggles with the aftermath of these crises and discusses the possibility that volatile financial markets in the future will have real impacts on whole industries and national economic systems. The author highlights the central role that domestic and international financial markets play in determining the economic growth rate, unemployment rate and international payments position of capitalist economies. He explains why the primary function of financial markets is to create liquidity and demonstrates that a liquid market cannot be efficient, and an efficient market cannot be liquid. He also proves that preventing liquidity problems from developing in national and international financial markets is the key element in fostering prosperity. Statistical evidence and theoretical analysis are combined to demonstrate why orthodox prescriptions for `liberalizing' labor, product, and capital markets are the wrong policies for promoting a civilized society in the 21st century. Professional economists, financial reporters, government policy makers, those working in international economic organizations such as the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO, and concerned citizens will all benefit greatly from reading this highly acclaimed book.

Purchasing Power Parity and Real Exchange Rates (Hardcover): Mark P. Taylor Purchasing Power Parity and Real Exchange Rates (Hardcover)
Mark P. Taylor
R2,351 Discovery Miles 23 510 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The term Purchasing Power Parity may date from the early twentieth century, when it was coined by the Swedish economist Gustav Cassel, but the underlying concept had been enjoying varying degrees of success since its development in sixteenth century Spain. Even towards the end of the twentieth century, and especially since the breakdown of the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates, PPP and the stability of real exchange rates continued to be the subject of academic debate.


This volume brings together essays covering aspects of current thinking on Purchasing Power Parity, from the various ways in which to test for its existence, to its appearance in different economies around the world, to examinations of the explanations given when PPP does not appear to hold

This book was published as a special issue of Applied Financial Economics. The academic editor of this journal is Mark P. Taylor.

Japan'S Economic Recovery - Commercial Policy, Monetary Policy, and Corporate Governance (Hardcover, illustrated edition):... Japan'S Economic Recovery - Commercial Policy, Monetary Policy, and Corporate Governance (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Robert M. Stern
R3,060 Discovery Miles 30 600 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The contributors to this book, from the US and Japan, explore the main issues involved in the international trade, foreign direct investment, and macro/financial relations of the United States and Japan and provide guidance to policymakers for measures to help overcome Japan's economic stagnation since the early 1990s. The book is divided into three parts. Part I contains an empirical analysis of trade diversion under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), a theoretical analysis of time in determining the structure and effects of trade with an application to Japan, and an empirical analysis of Japan's changing import behavior. Part II is focused on foreign direct investment (FDI), trade, and the behavior and structure of Japanese firms. Part III deals with macro/financial issues of current interest and importance in Japan. The analytical focus of the chapters is intended to enhance the understanding of the issues addressed and to provide some guidance to policymakers in the design of measures that will improve economic efficiency and welfare and help to overcome the economic stagnation that Japan has experienced in the past decade or more. Economists, political scientists and policymakers will find the analysis provided in this volume invaluable in understanding the Japanese economy and economic relations between Japan and the United States.

The Nature of Economic Growth - An Alternative Framework for Understanding the Performance of Nations (Paperback, New edition):... The Nature of Economic Growth - An Alternative Framework for Understanding the Performance of Nations (Paperback, New edition)
A.P. Thirlwall
R473 Discovery Miles 4 730 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This concise book, by one of the leading scholars in development economics, has been developed from a series of lectures given to masters students and will serve as an excellent introduction to the principles of growth and development theory. The author presents conventional wisdom with a critical eye and charts development economics as it has evolved from Adam Smith to `new' or endogenous growth theory. Thirlwall is critical of the latter, and its predecessor neo-classical growth theory, and tries to put back demand as a driving force in growth theory. He argues that in an open developing economy one of the major constraints is the availability of foreign exchange to pay for imports, so that export growth which relaxes a balance of payments constraint on demand becomes a crucial determinant of overall growth performance. Demand creating its own supply in a growth context, rather than the pre-Keynesian view of supply creating its own demand, provides an alternative framework to the neo-classical one for understanding the differential growth performance of nations. This highly original book will be essential reading for all students and scholars of development and growth economics.

Monetary Policy and Taiwan's Economy (Hardcover): Gerald P. Dwyer, Jin-Lung Lin, Jia-Dong Shea, Chung-Shu Wu Monetary Policy and Taiwan's Economy (Hardcover)
Gerald P. Dwyer, Jin-Lung Lin, Jia-Dong Shea, Chung-Shu Wu
R2,189 Discovery Miles 21 890 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Monetary Policy and Taiwan's Economy questions whether the Asian crisis could have been avoided through the application of recommendations highlighted by the contributors. The conclusion reached is that in an abstract world, perhaps; but in the world in which we live; no. It is argued that the proposals made could certainly contribute to improved policy, albeit effecting marginal improvements rather than ground breaking changes. The contributors demonstrate that proficient monetary policy and banking regulation can be achieved through sound economic analysis that takes into account: * monetary aggregates in monetary policy * the role of exchange rate policies in the Asian crisis * the relationship between the exchange rate, capital flows and central bank intervention * similarities between the restructuring of banking systems in Asia and in Eastern Europe following the fall of communism. This book will appeal to academics and researchers of macroeconomics - especially those with a particular interest in monetary theory and policy. Economic analysts, commercial banks, financial institutions and specialists in financial crisis will also find the book to be a fascinating read.

Strategic Multilateral Exchange - General Equilibrium with Imperfect Competition (Hardcover): Jean Jaskold Gabszewicz Strategic Multilateral Exchange - General Equilibrium with Imperfect Competition (Hardcover)
Jean Jaskold Gabszewicz
R1,998 Discovery Miles 19 980 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Jean Gabszewicz's new book is devoted to the study of strategic multilateral exchange. Contrary to the classical competitive paradigm in which agents are assumed to behave as price takers, here traders are allowed to consciously behave as strategic agents who aim to influence trade to their own advantage. This is usually done in oligopoly theory using a partial equilibrium approach while in this case a system of interrelated markets is considered. Primarily, the book discusses the game-theoretic concept of core and the relationship between core and the set of price allocations in economies embodying significant traders is explored. The author goes on to adopt a non-cooperative approach building on the concept of Nash equilibrium. Strategic Multilateral Exchange will be welcomed by academics, advanced research scholars and doctoral students with an interest in economic theory, microeconomic theory and general equilibrium. It will also appeal to mathematical economists with an orientation in mathematical economics and game theory.

Economic Performance in the Americas - The Role of the Service Sector in Brazil, Mexico and the USA (Hardcover, illustrated... Economic Performance in the Americas - The Role of the Service Sector in Brazil, Mexico and the USA (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Nanno Mulder
R2,407 Discovery Miles 24 070 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Economic Performance in the Americas compares the economic performances of Brazil, Mexico and the USA over the past half century. As with most other high and middle-income countries their economies are service-sector orientated and have been for several decades. This book encompasses all sectors of the economy but focuses primarily on services, analysing both the main trends in the various service industries in Brazil and Mexico and the underlying forces shaping their huge expansion. The growth of services obscures large differences between the two Latin countries and the USA in terms of the types of services that gained importance and the driving growth forces. The author provides a fascinatingly unique and comprehensive overview of the long run development of the entire service sector in the countries discussed. Using new methods for international comparisons of output and productivity in services, Nanno Mulder examines the impact of the increased service sector orientation in the overall economy. Relative to the USA, the Brazilian and Mexican service sectors performed better than agriculture and to a lesser extent, industry. However, this positive contribution hides large discrepancies, with some service industries showing important productivity gains whereas others turned out stagnant. Scholars and analysts of macroeconomics, industrial economics and development economics will warmly welcome this book.

Political Pressure, Rhetoric and Monetary Policy - Lessons for the European Central Bank (Hardcover): Philipp Maier Political Pressure, Rhetoric and Monetary Policy - Lessons for the European Central Bank (Hardcover)
Philipp Maier
R1,993 Discovery Miles 19 930 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Philipp Maier offers a unique examination of the extent to which governments and various interest groups have exerted pressure on central banks. The book looks in particular at the Deutsche Bundesbank - which acted as the blueprint for the European Central Bank (ECB) - and utilises an original set of indicators to measure external pressure and support from the government and other institutions. The author demonstrates that although some of the rhetoric of the Bundesbank may have been a response to political pressure, the operation and conduct of German monetary policy has not been influenced. The role of various pressure groups remains a more contentious issue, as there is evidence that the Bundesbank may have acted to appease the financial sector. The author also finds that a high degree of public support towards the Bundesbank has helped to mitigate the effect of external forces. As the ECB was closely modelled on its German counterpart, the author is able to extend his analysis to the European level and draw out explicit predictions for the ECB. He argues that external pressure is unlikely to influence the conduct of monetary policy, as it will be less efficient and organised, and public support is likely to be high. In the future, however, this could be jeopardised by a rapid enlargement of EMU which may result in more concentrated and powerful pressure groups. This interesting empirical study of the effect of governments, interest groups and public support on the behaviour and rhetoric of Central Banks will be welcomed by financial and monetary economists, students and scholars of European finance and European policymakers.

Economic Behavior and Distributional Choice - Selected Writings of Harold M. Hochman (Hardcover): Harold M. Hochman Economic Behavior and Distributional Choice - Selected Writings of Harold M. Hochman (Hardcover)
Harold M. Hochman
R2,217 Discovery Miles 22 170 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Economic Behavior and Distributional Choice brings together, for the first time, Harold M. Hochman's key papers on income redistribution and policy in one accessible volume. The introduction describes the genesis and development of a new direction in thinking, and the papers that follow cover the evolutions of an idea: the alliance between distribution policy and distributional preference as developed through public choice theory. This fine collection illustrates Harold M. Hochman's major contributions to the discussion of the relationship between distributional preference, income transfer policy and economic justice, including the concept of Pareto Optimal Distribution. These contributions have significantly advanced our understanding of the ways in which economic analysis can inform income distribution policy.

Monetary Policy Over Fifty Years - Experiences and Lessons (Hardcover): Heinz Herrmann Monetary Policy Over Fifty Years - Experiences and Lessons (Hardcover)
Heinz Herrmann
R2,537 Discovery Miles 25 370 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book is based on a conference celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Deutsche Bundesbank. Since the 1950s, there have been fundamental changes in the monetary order and financial systems, in our understanding of the effects of monetary policy, the best goals for central banks and the appropriate institutional setting of central banks. Prominent monetary economists and central bankers give their views on the most significant developments during this period and the lessons we should draw from them.

The book contains four sections on central issues. The first part discusses the main successes and failures of monetary policy since the 1950s. The second part asks what economists have learned about monetary policy over the past 50 years. It gives an overview on experiences with various monetary strategies, focusing in particular on monetary targeting and its problems, on inflation targeting and why it was successful and the institutional framework for monetary policy. The next section outlines the progress that monetary economists have made since the Bundesbank was founded and discusses the extent to which central banks can rely on "scientific" principles. The final part describes the interaction between monetary policy, fiscal policy and labour markets.

The book provides a comprehensive overview of the main challenges faced by central bankers in the past and how and to what extent monetary economics have been helpful in tackling them. It outlines our current knowledge about the effects of monetary policy and the appropriate institutional framework for central banks and raises some open questions for the future. It will be of great interest to monetary economists, central bankers and economic historians.

Financial Liberalization and Intervention - A New Analysis of Credit Rationing (Hardcover): Santonu Basu Financial Liberalization and Intervention - A New Analysis of Credit Rationing (Hardcover)
Santonu Basu
R1,964 Discovery Miles 19 640 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book seeks to provide a coherent explanation as to why the policies of financial liberalization and financial intervention have been unable to achieve the goal of improving the access of borrowers to the loan market, irrespective of size. This is one of the prime criteria for achieving efficiency in the operation of the loan market and its failure has resulted in increased uncertainty and financial fragility. Santonu Basu develops an original theory of credit rationing which provides a theoretical explanation as to why neither policy has worked. He introduces two new concepts, namely credit standard and credit risk, in order to explain why bankers ration credit to some, while quite willingly offer loans to others. He then uses these two concepts to show why the implementation of either policy involves forcing or inducing the banking sector to relax its credit standard requirements. This in turn increases credit risk to an unprecedented level, thereby engendering either financial crisis or financial fragility. The author employs empirical evidence from both India and South Korea to demonstrate how these scenarios can unfold. Financial Liberalization and Intervention provides a comprehensive analysis of the uncertainty that prevails in the operation of the loan market. It will be welcomed by scholars and students of economics, policymakers, banking regulators and the financial sector as a whole.
