  • This note presents the neoclassical growth model in discrete time. The model is based on microfoundations, which means that the objectives of the economic agents are formulated explicitly, and that their behavior is derived by assuming that they always try to achieve their objectives as well as they can: employment and investment decisions by the firms are derived by assuming that firms maximize profits; consumption and saving decisions by the households are derived by assuming that households maximize their utility....

  • Openness and trade liberalization are now seen almost universally as key components of the national policy cocktail required for economic growth and aggregate economic well-being. They are believed to have been central to the remarkable growth of industrial countries since the mid-20th century and to the examples of successful economic development since around 1970. The continued existence of widespread and abject poverty, on the other hand, represents perhaps the greatest failure of the contemporary global economy and the greatest challenge it faces as we enter the 21st century.

  • To improve their influence on SRH legislation, policy and spending decisions at all levels, it is necessary to strengthen the capacity of marginalised people and of other civil society organisations concerned with SRH including women’s groups, health and human rights groups and elected representatives so they can better negotiate for their demands. Civil society groups should collect evidence to support these demands, support marginalised people to express their concerns, and form alliances to strengthen their representation.

  • Chapter 3 The Behavior of Households with Markets for Commodities and Credit In this chapter we move from the world in which Robinson Crusoe is alone on his island to a world of many identical households that interact. To begin, we consider one particular representative household. When we add together the behaviors of many households, we get a macroeconomy.

  • The evidence does suggest that high-income households take tax increases into account in decisions about the timing of income and the form in which they receive income. For example, research on capital gains demonstrates that people may plan when they sell an asset if a pending law change will affect their taxes on income from the sale. Similarly, changes in the difference in tax rates between household and corporate income have been shown to produce shifts in the type of compensation taken by corporate executives and business owners....

  • This scoping study is relevant to a variety of potential stakeholders. This subject area is a classic case of the possibility that those already working with media might be slow to adopt change preferring “business as usual”, and the new opportunities may be taken up by entrepreneurial community organisations. The target audiences are the networks represented by the collaborators in those countries specified, and a wider global network of organisations working with the collaborators. The direct users of the scoping study will be policy and decision makers and international donors.

  • Currently, poverty is broadly defined by the lack of public services and the lack of opportunities to generate income, as well as the inability of people to act in their own interests, to express their needs through con- crete proposals, and to organize collectively to implement solutions. Poverty constitutes a challenge to the peaceful coexistence of people and represents ignorance of their social, economic, and political rights. How- ever, creating permanent jobs and implementing productive projects for poverty reduction are not simple tasks....

  • This paper proposes a simple consumption-based explanation of both the cross-sectional variation in expected stock returns and the countercyclical vari- ation in the equity premium. I use a representative household model, in which intraperiod utility is a constant elasticity of substitution (CES) function of nondurable and durable consumption. The household’s intertemporal utility is Epstein and Zin’s (1991) recursive function, which allows for the separation of the elasticity of intertemporal substitution (EIS) from risk aversion.

  • In related work, Pakoˇ s (2004) considers a representative household model with nonhomothetic utility in nondurable and durable consumption. He fo- cuses on the Leontief model, in which the elasticity of substitution between the two types of goods is zero. Since the consumption of durables relative to nondurables is procyclical, a low elasticity of substitution between the goods implies procyclical marginal utility.
