  • "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.

  • "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.

By keeping cuts brief, monetary policy... more...

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

    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.

We develop such a measure and uses it to... more...

    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...

    International Monetary Fund 2009; US$ 9.00

    After a long period of global price stability, in 2008 inflation increased sharply following unprecedented increases in the price of oil and other commodities, notably food. Although inflation remained lower and growth higher in inflation targeting countries than elsewhere, almost everywhere price stability seemed in jeopardy as consumer prices kept... more...

  • The $800 Million Pillby Merrill Goozner

    University of California Press 2004; US$ 26.95 US$ 21.56

    Why do life-saving prescription drugs cost so much? Drug companies insist that prices reflect the millions they invest in research and development.
