Equity Efficiency and Growth Book Description :

In the post-war period, spending on social security, health and education has grown continuously in the leading industrialized countries. The considerable size of this spending as a percentage of GDP together with the ageing population raise doubts on the sustainability of welfare spending. These doubts have been accompanied in recent years by an increasing awareness of the allocational inefficiencies and the distributive inequalities caused by the provision of some social services. The welfare state should therefore be reconstructed not only through readjustment of the social security system but also a change in unemployment benefits and the taxation of workers to avoid the perverse spiral that may be produced in the future by cuts in welfare benefi...

Interactions in Political Economy Book Description :

In recent years there has been a growing dissatisfaction with standard economic theorising which has fostered the development of alternative ways of understanding how economies actually work. Too often though these approaches have been developed in isolation, or even in opposition to each other. However, Interactions in Political Economy, demonstrates that the different heterodox approaches to economics have much to learn from each other. Economists working within different paradigms, including Post Keynesian, Marxism and Neo-Ricardian economics address a wide range of issues in methodology, the history of economics, theory and policy. The result is a wealth of insight into how economics ought to be done, how various theoretical approaches dovetail, ...

Inflation Targeting and the Unemployment Inflation Trade off Book Description :

This paper examines the impact of the introduction of inflation targeting on the unemployment-inflation trade-off in OECD countries. Theoretical models suggest that the credibility-enhancing effects of the adoption of inflation targeting should cause an improvement in the unemployment-inflation trade-off, i.e., that reducing inflation by a given amount should occur with a smaller rise in unemployment. The empirical evidence examined for OECD countries adopting inflation targeting supports this hypothesis. Using a smooth transition regression model, it is shown that the improvement in this trade-off does not take place immediately after the adoption of inflation targeting; rather, it improves over time as the credibility of the central bank is establi...
