  • "Der weisse Hai" im Weltraumby Veit Etzold

    Wiley 2013; US$ 17.50

    80 Prozent ihrer Zeit verbringen Manager mit Kommunikation. Dumm nur, dass das Meiste davon beim Gegenüber nicht hängenbleibt. Warum? Wir haben verlernt, gute Geschichten zu erzählen. Obwohl wir es können. Denn der Mensch ist ein geborener Storyteller. Doch gerade im Unternehmen glaubt man, dass nur faktenschwangere und schwer verdauliche... more...

  • "Fiscal Devaluation" and Fiscal Consolidation: The VAT in Troubled Timesby Michael Keen; Ruud A. de Mooij

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    This paper focuses on two core tax design issues that arise in addressing current fiscal challenges. It first explores the idea, prominent in troubled Eurozone countries, of a "fiscal devaluation": shifting from social contributions to the VAT as a way to mimic a nominal devaluation. Empirical evidence is presented which suggests that in Eurozone countries... more...

  • "International Reserves in Low Income Countries: Have They Served as Buffers?"by International Monetary Fund

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    This paper provides a historical perspective on the role of international reserves in low-income countries as a cushion against large external shocks over the last three decades - including the current global crisis.

  • "Leaning Against the Wind" and the Timing of Monetary Policyby Itai Agur; Maria Demertzis

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    If monetary policy is to aim also at financial stability, how would it change? To analyze this question, this paper develops a general-form framework. Financial stability objectives are shown to make monetary policy more aggressive: in reaction to negative shocks, cuts are deeper but shorter-lived than otherwise. By keeping cuts brief, monetary policy... more...

  • "Near-Coincident" Indicators of Systemic Stressby Ivailo Arsov; Elie Canetti; Laura E. Kodres; Srobona Mitra

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    The G-20 Data Gaps Initiative has called for the IMF to develop standard measures of tail risk, which we identify in this paper with systemic risk. To understand the conditions under which tail risk is present, it is first necessary to develop a measure of what constitutes a systemic stress, or tail, event. We develop such a measure and uses it to... more...

    Reaktion Books 2004; US$ 29.00

  • "Puts" in the Shadowby Manmohan Singh

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    In the aftermath of the Lehman crisis, payouts (i.e., taxpayer bailouts) in various forms were provided by governments to a variety of financial institutions and markets that were outside the regulatory perimeter - the "shadow" banking system. Although recent regulatory proposals attempt to reduce these "puts", we provide examples from... more...

  • "So What Are You Going to Do with That?"by Susan Basalla; Maggie Debelius

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 14.00

    Graduate schools churn out tens of thousands of Ph.D.’s and M.A.’s every year. Half of all college courses are taught by adjunct faculty. The chances of an academic landing a tenure-track job seem only to shrink as student loan and credit card debts grow. What’s a frustrated would-be scholar to do? Can he really leave academia?... more...
