We assess the possible channels through which China’s accession to the WTO could affect East Asia and quantify these effects using a dynamic computable general equilibrium model. China will be the biggest beneficiary of accession, followed by the industrialized and newly industrializing economies (NIEs) in East Asia.

  • Stabilization Programs, Monetary Policy and Exchange Rate Movements in Emerging Markets Economies I use a unique data set consisting of observations on more than 300,000 metropolitan SAT takers from the 1994 cohort, matched to the high schools that students attended. The size of this sample permits accurate estimation of both peer quality and average performance for the great majority of high schools in each of 177 metropolitan housing markets. I find no evidence that the association between peer group and student performance is stronger in high-choice than in low-choice markets....

  • Most observers of the economy now accept that a major shift occurred during the 1970s. The rapid productivity growth of the postwar years came to an end—for reasons that are still being debated among economists and historians. Wage growth lagged, and the economy suffered multiple shocks from energy prices and rapid inflation. The surge of births in the postwar baby boom meant that the labor force grew rapidly, while women were entering the labor force in numbers unprecedented in peacetime.

  • A positive financial outlook. Small businesses are expecting better bottom lines in 2010 than in the previous year and a half. For the first time, more businesses expect to gain revenue (31 percent) in the current year than lose revenue (23 percent). To further support their optimism, more small businesses (58 percent) expect to show a profit this year than just six months ago (47 percent in December 2009 expected to show a profit in the current year). More caution with the economy. Despite the expectation of better bottom lines, small businesses remain...

  • Having discussed robustness, Section IV turns to three extensions of our baseline results. First, we check whether the baseline results differ depending on whether the fiscal consolidation reflects changes in government spending or changes in revenue. The results suggest that fiscal multipliers were, on average, underestimated for both sides of the fiscal balance, with a slightly larger degree of underestimation associated with changes in government spending. Second, we examine forecast errors for the unemployment rate and for the components of GDP.

  • In the longer run, the service sector is expected to continue ex- panding faster than the overall economy, i.e. the share of the service sector in overall employment will increase. Our baseline scenario for regional office employment does not forecast any big shifts in the regional distribution of the industries. Based on population size and the concentration of services, Istanbul is and will remain by far the largest office market in the country, with the market’s importance as a gateway between Europe and Asia continuing to increase.

  • In 1980, Austin, Texas, and Syracuse, New York, were roughly the same size. The Austin metro area had a population of about 590,000, and the Syracuse metro area had about 643,000 residents. By 2007, Austin’s population had increased by more than 1 million while Syracuse’s population had been stagnant. That same disparity exists when one examines the growth of employment and real per- sonal income. Another disparity between the two areas is the tax burden. State and local taxes accounted for nearly 13 percent of personal income in Syracuse but only about 9 percent in Austin.

  • At the same time that California is decreasing ECE funding, researchers throughout the nation are documenting the importance of the ECE industry as an engine of economic development. More than 58 states and localities have conducted analyses of the size and regional economic impact of the industry. Because of the way that ECE expenditures “ripple” through the local economy, this sector has been found to have an economic impact that rivals the impact of many of the industries that have traditionally received economic development dollars from local and state governments (Liu et al. 2004).

  • This paper empirically examines the inf luence of “community effects,” in the form of word-of-mouth communication, on the decision about whether to participate in the stock market. In addition to its importance at the individ- ual level, equity market participation is also important at the aggregate level because of its ability to inf luence the size of the equity premium (Mankiw and Zeldes (1991), Heaton and Lucas (2000), Brav, Constantinides, and Gezcy (2002)).

  • The large size of the four banks relative to GDP and the banking system behooves careful attention to their vulnerabilities and resilience to shocks. 2 Any distress among these banks could have a sizable impact on the financial sector and the real economy in Australia and New Zealand. 3 Moreover, they may be perceived by the markets as too big to fail, which implies they could pose a potential fiscal liability.

  • The second aim of this thesis is to investigate whether Thai mutual fund performance can be explained by any of its characteristics. The study examines statistic and economic importance of fund characteristics to its performance. In the literature, evidence is sparse and mixed on developed markets, let alone that on emerging markets. Rather than focusing on one particular characteristic, this study draws on the evidence from five important characteristics in the literature, which offer theoretical and empirical support.

  • There is an oft-quoted saying believed to have originated as a Chinese proverb: “May you live in interesting times”. It is often not interpreted with a positive connotation! At present, it would be fair to say that the Indian mutual fund industry is living in interesting times. It remains to be seen how positively that can be interpreted. The last few years have seen a series of events, both within and outside the Indian economy, which have had a deleterious effect on the industry. The world as we knew it has changed in many ways....

  • Korea’s experience also illustrates how good crisis management can accelerate structural adjustment. The Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s led to significant down-sizing among large firms in Korea. This process was characterized by mass lay-offs of highly-skilled personnel, and large reductions in corporate R&D spending. The response of the Korean government, in addition to boosting education expenditure, was to increase its R&D budget, to offset the decline in corporate R&D spending.
