  • The risks to global value chains emerge not only from the decline in international trade, but also from key suppliers facing bankruptcy, and from firms re-considering their investment strategies and retrenching to core markets.

  • By creating the Federal Reserve System, Congress intended to eliminate the severe f inancial crises that had periodically swept the nation, especially the sort of f inancial panic that occurred in 1907. During that episode, payments were disrupted throughout the country because many banks and clearinghouses refused to clear checks drawn on certain other banks, a practice that contributed to the failure of otherwise solvent banks. To address these problems, Congress gave the Federal Reserve System the authority to establish a nationwide check-clearing system.

The evidence shows that ignoring climate change will eventually damage economic growth. Our actions over the coming few decades could create risks of major disruption to economic and social activity, later in this century and in the next, on a scale similar to those associated with the great wars and the economic depression of the first half of the 20th century. And it will be difficult or...

  • The Federal Reserve did not hold the size of its securities portfolio precisely constant after it ended its agency purchase program earlier this year. Instead, consistent with the Committee’s goal of ultimately returning the portfolio to one consisting primarily of Treasury securities, we adopted a policy of re-investing maturing Treasuries in similar securities while allowing agency securities to run off as payments of principal were received.

  • Applying strategic development assistance via a range of funding mechanisms and programs can stimulate long-term financing for the underserved markets described above.

  • Households will use the least costly and least disruptive means of responding to taxes, if in fact they respond at all, according to public finance economist Joel Slemrod. If households can simply alter the timing of an activity and largely avoid the impact of a tax change, they can be expected to do so. If they can alter the way their income is categorized for tax purposes and avoid the tax, they can be expected to do that. Households have been shown to dramatically shift when they sell an asset in advance of a pending capital gains tax increase, such as...

  • It has long been realized that while absolute measures of firm growth lead to a bias towards large firms, relative growth measures lead to a bias towards small firms (Acs et al., 2008; Schreyer, 2000). Due to the wide-spread use of the absolute and relative measures, we use these two measures for all growth indicators in the empirical analysis. We also apply the so- called composite index, i.e., the combination of employment growth measured in absolute and relative numbers, as growth measurement in order to relate to previous literature (see table 1).

  • Women's involvement in the formal sector has mainly been urban-based, as civil servants in the health and education sectors, where they had a sizeable presence before the conflict. This was severely disrupted by the strong restrictions on female employment during the Taliban period. Currently, close to one-third of all teachers are female, while an estimated 40% of all basic health facilities lack female staff, a clear constraint to delivering basic services (health, in particular) to women.
