  • Monetary Policy Committees, Learning, and Communicationby Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    This paper considers optimal communication by monetary policy committees in a model of imperfect knowledge and learning. The main policy implications are that there may be costs to central bank communication if the public is perpetually learning about the committee's decision-making process and policy preferences. When committee members have heterogeneous... more...

  • Stock-Flow Adjustments and Fiscal Transparency: A Cross-Country Comparisonby Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    Over the past three decades, large and persistent discrepancies between the annual change in public debt and the budget deficit, so-called stock-flow adjustments, were a prominent feature of debt dynamics in many economies. The aim of this paper is to investigate the underlying determinants of such discrepancies and their relationship with fiscal transparency... more...

    International Monetary Fund 2017; US$ 9.00

    This paper examines the case for efficiency-driven banking sector consolidation in Italy, evaluates its potential effects on profitability, and discusses policy options to facilitate a consolidation process that is as effective as possible. A bottom-up analysis of 386 Italian banks suggests that while profitability is expected to improve as the economy... more...

  • Armeniaby Anke Weber; Chunfang Yang

    International Monetary Fund 2011; US$ 9.00

    This paper uses a range of different methodologies to estimate the equilibrium real exchange rate in Armenia with both single-country and panel estimation techniques.

  • The Challenge of Debt Reduction during Fiscal Consolidationby Luc Eyraud; Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    Studies suggest that fiscal multipliers are currently high in many advanced economies. One important implication is that fiscal tightening could raise the debt ratio in the short term, as fiscal gains are partly wiped out by the decline in output. Although this effect is not long-lasting and debt eventually declines, it could be an issue if financial... more...

  • Global Spillovers into Domestic Bond Markets in Emerging Market Economiesby Laura Jaramillo; Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    While fiscal conditions remain healthier than in advanced economies, emerging economies continue to be exposed to negative spillovers if global conditions were to become less favorable. This paper finds that domestic bond yields in emerging economies are heavily influenced by two international factors: global risk appetite and global liquidity. Using... more...

  • Bond Yields in Emerging Economies: It Matters What State You Are Inby Laura Jaramillo; Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2012; US$ 9.00

    While many studies have looked into the determinants of yields on externally issued sovereign bonds of emerging economies, analysis of domestically issued bonds has hitherto been limited, despite their growing relevance. This paper finds that the extent to which fiscal variables affect domestic bond yields in emerging economies depends on the level... more...

  • Fiscal Multipliers in Bulgaria: Low But Still Relevantby Dirk Muir; Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2013; US$ 9.00

    With fiscal adjustment proceeding quickly in Bulgaria and given the weak economic growth environment, there is keen interest in making the budget composition more growth friendly. This paper quantifies the short-term impact of fiscal policy on economic activity in Bulgaria using econometric and model-based approaches. While fiscal multipliers have... more...

  • Profitability and Balance Sheet Repair of Italian Banksby Andreas Jobst; Anke Weber

    International Monetary Fund 2016; US$ 9.00

    The profitability of Italian banks depends, among other factors, on the strength of the ongoing economic recovery, the stance of monetary policy, and the beneficial effects of current and past reforms, notably to address structural obstacles to resolving nonperforming loans (NPLs) and to foster banking sector consolidation. Improved profitability would... more...
