Education Systems and Foreign Direct Investment

Elise Wendlassida Miningou & Sampawende J. Mr. Tapsoba

Education Systems and Foreign Direct Investment by Elise Wendlassida Miningou & Sampawende J. Mr. TapsobaThis paper examines the effect of the efficiency of the education system on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). First, it focuses on the external efficiency and applies a frontier-based measure as a proxy of the ability of countries to optimally convert the average years of schooling into income for individuals. Second, it shows the relationship between the external efficiency of the education system and FDI inflows by applying GMM regression technique. The results show that the efficiency level varies across regions and countries and appears to be driven by higher education and secondary vocational...

Optimal Fiscal and Monetary Policy, Debt Crisis and Management

Cristiano Mr. Cantore & Paul L. Mr. Levine

Optimal Fiscal and Monetary Policy, Debt Crisis and Management by Cristiano Mr. Cantore & Paul L. Mr. LevineThe initial government debt-to-GDP ratio and the government's commitment play a pivotal role in determining the welfare-optimal speed of fiscal consolidation in the management of a debt crisis. Under commitment, for low or moderate initial government debt-to-GPD ratios, the optimal consolidation is very slow. A faster pace is optimal when the economy starts from a high level of public debt implying high sovereign risk premia, unless these are suppressed via a bailout by official creditors. Under discretion, the cost of not being able to commit is reflected into a quick consolidation of government...

Inequality Overhang

Francesco Grigoli & Adrian Robles

Inequality Overhang by Francesco Grigoli & Adrian RoblesThe linearity of the relationship between income inequality and economic development has been long questioned. While theory provides arguments for which the shape of relationship may be positive for low levels of inequality and negative for high ones, most of the empirical literature assumes a linear specification finding conflicting results. Employing an innovative empirical approach robust to endogeneity, we find pervasive evidence of nonlinearities. In particular, similar to the debt overhang literature, we identify an inequality overhang level in that the slope of the relationship between...

Consumption in Brazil

Troy D. Mr. Matheson & G

Consumption in Brazil by Troy D. Mr. Matheson & GPrivate consumption has been a key driver of growth in Brazil for more than a decade. Over this time, Brazilian consumers have benefited from a favorable policy environment, a rapid phase of development-dramatically increasing economic, financial and social inclusion- and a supportive external environment. Meanwhile, infrastructure gaps have widened and investment and productivity levels have fallen behind. The consumption-led growth model now appears to have run its course. The prospect of a period of macroeconomic adjustment presents an opportunity to adjust policy settings to ensure stronger,...

The Effects of Data Transparency Policy Reforms on Emerging Market Sovereign Bond Spreads

Sangyup Choi & Yuko Ms. Hashimoto

The Effects of Data Transparency Policy Reforms on Emerging Market Sovereign Bond Spreads by Sangyup Choi & Yuko Ms. HashimotoWe find that data transparency policy reforms, reflected in subscriptions to the IMF's Data Standards Initiatives (SDDS and GDDS), reduce the spreads of emerging market sovereign bonds. To overcome endogeneity issues regarding a country's decision to adopt such reforms, we first show that the reform decision is largely independent of its macroeconomic development. By using an event study, we find that subscriptions to the SDDS or GDDS leads to a 15 percent reduction in the spreads one year following such reforms. This finding is robust to various sensitivity tests, including careful consideration...

Financial Stability Reports in Latin America and the Caribbean

Cheng Hoon Lim & Alexander D. Mr. Klemm

Financial Stability Reports in Latin America and the Caribbean by Cheng Hoon Lim & Alexander D. Mr. KlemmMany countries in Latin America and the Caribbean now publish financial stability reports. This study reviews their latest issues to assess their content, quality, and transparency. While some reports provide a strong analysis of risks and vulnerabilities, there are significant cross-country differences, and many reports could be improved by adopting a more comprehensive, forward-looking, and thematic assessment of financial stability. A well thought out communication strategy, including a regular and predictable publication schedule and an easily accessible website, is also important to enhance...

World Trade in Services

Prakash Mr. Loungani & Saurabh Mr. Mishra

World Trade in Services by Prakash Mr. Loungani & Saurabh Mr. MishraUsing a newly constructed dataset on trade in services for 192 countries from 1970 to 2014, this paper shows that services currently constitute one-fourth of world trade and an increasingly important component of global production. A detailed analysis of patterns and stylized facts reveals that exports of services are not only gaining strong momentum and catching up with exports of goods in many countries, but they could also trigger a new wave of trade globalization. Research applications of the trade in service dataset on structural transformation, resilience, labor reallocation, and income...

Excessive Private Sector Leverage and Its Drivers

Mariusz Jarmuzek & Rossen Rozenov

Excessive Private Sector Leverage and Its Drivers by Mariusz Jarmuzek & Rossen RozenovNonfinancial private sector debt increased significantly in advanced economies prior to the global financial crisis and, with a few exceptions, deleveraging has been limited. Furthermore, in some countries households and corporations have continued to accumulate debt. Drawing on the literature, the paper aims to provide a quantitative assessment of the gaps between actual and sustainable levels of debt and to identify the key factors that drive excessive borrowing. Results suggest that variables that are typically found important in studies focusing on borrowing decisions, are also relevant...

Does Prolonged Monetary Policy Easing Increase Financial Vulnerability?

Stephen Cecchetti & Tommaso Mancini Mr. Griffoli

Does Prolonged Monetary Policy Easing Increase Financial Vulnerability? by Stephen Cecchetti & Tommaso Mancini Mr. GriffoliUsing firm-level data for approximately 1,000 bank and nonbank financial institutions in 22 countries over the past 15 years we study the impact of prolonged monetary policy easing on risk-taking behavior. We find that the leverage ratio, as well as other measures of firm-level vulnerability, increases for banks and nonbanks as domestic monetary policy easing persists. Cross-border effects are also notable. We find effects of roughly similar magnitude on foreign financial sector firms when the U.S. eases policy. Results appear robust to a variety of specifications, and to be non-linear, with...

In Our Own Words: A people's commentary on life in the former Soviet Union

Joseph Fjelstad

In Our Own Words: A people's commentary on life in the former Soviet Union by Joseph Fjelstad

The Soviet Union collapse was both sudden and complete. The citizens of the former superpower were caught in a maelstrom of change seldom experienced outside of all out global war. This book captures the experiences of 60 individual citizens of the former Soviet Union for the reader to ponder. The human experience is universal and it is likely that the reader will find echos of some of their own thoughts expressed in these pages.

The following reviews of the first edition give testimony to the need to understand and appreciate the resilience of the human spirit under extreme duress.
