December 12, 2000 -- Transcript of Economic Forum: The Information Economy: New Paradigm or Old Fashion? December 12, 2000
Recent experience in the U.S. with high growth, low unemployment, and low inflation has led a number of observers to conclude that maybe there's a new economy or a new economic paradigm in the United States.
December 01, 2000 -- IMF Staff Papers - Volume 47, Number 2, 2000 - Japan's Stagnant Nineties: A Vector Autoregression Retrospective, by Ramana Ramaswamy and Christel Rendu
This paper uses a vector autoregression (VAR) approach to identify the driving forces of the growth slowdown in Japan during the 1990s. Negative shocks to both residential and nonresidential investment are shown to have been important determinants of the slowdown. Despite the collapse in asset prices, negative shocks to private consumption were relatively small. A surprising conclusion is that trends in public consumption had a dampening impact on activity in the nineties. The VAR estimations do not support the counterfactual conjecture that activity in Japan would have been significantly weaker in the absence of the expansionary shift in fiscal policy.
November 08, 2000 -- Transcript of Economic Forum -- One World, One Currency: Destination or Delusion? November 8, 2000
