  • Improved Forecasts of Tax Revenue via the Permanent Income Hypothesis
    • Authors: Lance A. Fisher; Geoffrey Kingston
      Pages: 21 - 31
      Abstract: During the Costello era, Australian Budgets under-estimated tax receipts for the upcoming fiscal year on 11 out of 12 occasions. The Swan–Hockey era saw over-estimates of tax receipts for eight fiscal years in a row. In this way, the last two decades have seen substantial serial correlation in the errors of Budget revenue forecasts, revealing an inefficient forecasting process. We improve the efficiency and accuracy of Budget forecasts of tax revenue by incorporating National Accounts data on household saving behaviour. In particular, the adjusted R2-statistic is substantially higher. Household saving behaviour also helps to predict nominal gross domestic product growth.

  • Inequality and Growth: Reviewing the Economic and Social Impacts
    • Authors: Tony Ward
      Pages: 32 - 51
      Abstract: Does rising inequality provide incentives for individuals to work harder and invest? Or does it hamper economic growth? This article reviews the now-extensive literature on the subject. It starts by outlining some of the social impacts of recent increases in inequality, concentrating on those affecting economic growth. It then notes the diverse results from econometric studies. From these results, the article focuses on the mechanisms suggested in the literature linking inequality and economic growth. It summarises results in five broad areas. While specifics vary with circumstances, in most, increases in inequality have negative impacts on economic growth.

  • A Short Review of the Recent Literature on Uncertainty
    • Authors: Efrem Castelnuovo; Guay Lim, Giovanni Pellegrino
      Pages: 68 - 78
      Abstract: This article summarises the academic contributions presented and discussed during the 2016 edition of the Melbourne Institute Macroeconomic Policy Meetings, which focused on the role played by uncertainty for a number of countries’ business cycle. Considerations on the interaction between uncertainty and financial frictions, the global dimension of uncertainty, uncertainty shocks in times of unconventional monetary policy and the imperfect knowledge that agents have over policy targets are among the discussions entertained in this article. The main insights coming from those papers are connected with the extant literature and directions for future research are offered.

  • Observations on Uncertainty
    • Authors: Nicholas Bloom
      Pages: 79 - 84
      Abstract: I discuss three phenomena which appear important for modelling the impact of uncertainty on growth. The first is international spillovers in uncertainty, which arise even in large countries like the United States and particularly in smaller countries like Australia. Second, that the main channel for uncertainty to impact gross domestic product growth is through investment, which responds much more strongly and rapidly than consumption expenditure. This is possibly because firms are more forward-looking than consumers, so respond more strongly to changes in future expectations of business conditions. Third, I discuss how recently uncertainty has spiked in three waves: the great recession of 2008–2009, the fiscal crises in the United States and Europe from 2010 to 2012 and recently after the Brexit and Trump votes.

  • Uncertainty and Monetary Policy
    • Authors: Christopher Kent
      Pages: 85 - 88
      Abstract: This article presents three dimensions of uncertainty that policy-makers face when making policy decisions: data uncertainty, model uncertainty and unexpected events. Data uncertainty relates to both revisions and other measurement problems that imply that data are subject to a degree of ‘noise’. Model uncertainty relates to the imperfect knowledge we have on the structure of the economy, including the transmission mechanism of monetary policy and the effect of macroeconomic shocks. Unexpected events or shocks contribute to uncertainty about the future, along with the potential for the structure of the economy to evolve over time, which makes the past a poor guide to the future. The article discusses how these different dimensions of uncertainty can influence monetary policy decisions.

  • Accounting for Uncertainty in Public Debt Targets
    • Authors: Martin Fukač; Robert Kirkby
      Pages: 89 - 102
      Abstract: We use a semi-structural fan-chart approach to measure the changing nature of uncertainty for public debt targets in New Zealand. We find that economic and fiscal factors dominate the uncertainty landscape over the 3 year and longer time horizons. The near term tends to be dominated by non-fundamental factors, such as measurement errors, that are typically outside of reasonable policy responses. We conclude that medium-term fiscal targets are better placed to support macroeconomic stability than short-term targets. We also quantify the fiscal buffers that may be needed to offset some of the future uncertainty, if policy-makers choose to do so. The analysis is intended to support contingency planning in fiscal management and communication strategy of fiscal targets.

  • Policy Uncertainty from a Central Bank Perspective
    • Authors: C. John McDermott
      Pages: 103 - 106
      Abstract: In this article, I argue that a substantial portion of macroeconomic policy uncertainty derives from the external environment, which propagates into uncertainty about actual policy. I also illustrate elements of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's monetary policy framework that aim to mitigate uncertainty, highlighting our clear objectives, regular decision-making cycle and active communication strategy. Lastly, I leave researchers with two questions: What measures of uncertainty should be pre-eminently important to policy-makers' And how should policy-makers respond to those measurements'

  • Uncertainty and Macroeconomic Policy
    • Authors: John Swieringa
      Pages: 107 - 109
      Abstract: The policy-maker's decision-making environment is rarely characterised by complete certainty or complete uncertainty, but it is useful to contemplate these extremes as a guide to action in the grey area in-between. A pragmatic approach to circumstances without existing evidence to rely upon is to assume all events should be treated as equally likely. With detrimental outcomes as likely as neutral or positive ones, the value of insuring against the negative increases. Unless insurance itself has become more expensive, policy-makers should consider rising uncertainty as motivating greater insurance but be cognisant of factors that may limit policy effectiveness in uncertain times.

  • Measurement of Peer Effects
    • Authors: Chris Ryan
      Pages: 121 - 129
      Abstract: Papers that aim to measure peer effects on the educational outcomes of an individual face at least two problems in estimating them convincingly. The first is a sorting problem: in education, individuals who are already alike tend to sort together into similar schools or institutions. The second is the reflection problem: if my peers affect me, do I not also affect them' Solutions to these problems are not straightforward and the methods often used in the literature are contentious, as this review aims to make clear. External manipulation of peer groups, via quasi- or full randomisation, provides a necessary starting point.

  • Renewable versus nonrenewable resources: an analysis of volatility in
           futures prices
    • Authors: Arkady Gevorkyan
      Pages: 19 - 35
      Abstract: This study outlines a new approach for differentiating commodity futures based on their exhaustibility. Various aspects of volatility in the futures prices of renewable resources (palm oil, coffee, soya beans, rice, wheat and corn) and nonrenewable resources (zinc, aluminium, natural gas, gold, crude oil and copper) are studied, exploring whether volatility is greater in the former than in the latter. We use a generalised autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (GARCH) model to test our main hypothesis that the volatility in futures prices for renewable resources has recently been equal to or greater than the volatility in futures prices for nonrenewable resources. Our key findings suggest that futures prices for some renewable resources have greater variance than those for benchmark crude oil in a simulated GARCH series. We extend our analysis using a nonlinear vector smooth transition autoregressive (VSTAR) model to test for the existence of a shifting-mean tendency in the commodity series that we researched. We show that transition from a stable to a volatile regime is more abrupt for renewable resources.

  • State-contingent analysis of farmers’ response to weather variability:
           irrigated dairy farming in the Murray Valley, Australia
    • Authors: Thilak Mallawaarachchi; Céline Nauges, Orion Sanders, John Quiggin
      Pages: 36 - 55
      Abstract: The agricultural sector is commonly regarded as one of the most vulnerable to climate change. Current understanding of the impact of climate change on this sector relies on the underlying assumptions about farmers’ possible responses to weather variability, including changes in crop choice, input combinations and land management practices. Many previous analyses rely on the implicit (and restrictive) assumption that farmers operate under a fixed technology set across different states of nature. This assumption, represented through stochastic production or profit functions, is commonly made but seldom tested and may understate farmers’ responses to climate change if state-contingent production technologies are, in reality, more flexible. The potential for farmers to adapt production technologies in response to unforeseen events is at the core of the state-contingent approach. Advanced in Chambers and Quiggin (2000), the theory contends that producers can manage uncertainty through the allocation of productive inputs to different states of nature. In this article, we test the assumption that farmers’ observed behaviour is consistent with the state-contingent production theory using farm-level data from Australia. More precisely, we estimate the milk production technology for a sample of irrigated dairy farms from the southern Murray–Darling Basin over the period from 2006–2007 to 2009–2010.

  • Convergent validity in contingent valuation: an application to the
           willingness to pay for national climate change mitigation targets in
           Germany
    • Authors: Reinhard Uehleke
      Pages: 76 - 94
      Abstract: This stated preferences survey determines the willingness to pay (WTP) for climate change mitigation policies using a representative sample of the German population. WTP is compared across three valuation question formats in a split sample design: the dichotomous choice (DC) referendum, the dissonance minimizing (DM) referendum and the two-way payment ladder (TWPL). The influence of multinational cooperation on WTP is assessed by variation in the hypothetical scenarios. We demonstrate that the DM referendum and the TWPL, two question formats that induce similar response incentives, yield equal mean WTPs. Multinational cooperation did not change WTP in any of the question formats. Implications for current contingent valuation practice are discussed.

  • Community acceptance of biodiversity offsets: evidence from a choice
           experiment
    • Authors: Michael Burton; Abbie Rogers, Claire Richert
      Pages: 95 - 114
      Abstract: This study of the community's acceptance of biodiversity offsets in Australia provides insights relevant to future revisions of offset policies of both State and Commonwealth Governments. A choice experiment was used to measure preferences for the general acceptability of offsetting, and for a number of attributes that define how an offset can be implemented. Based on a sample of 204 respondents from Perth, WA, we found that the majority of respondents did not object to the practice of biodiversity offsetting in general. A minority of respondents preferred that offset actions be direct, but most accepted a combination of direct and indirect actions. Individuals generally preferred that the offset be located near the site of impact, and it became more unacceptable the further away that it was located. However, there was heterogeneity in preferences for protecting the impacted species or a more endangered one.

  • Ecosystem impacts of pesticide reductions through Bt cotton adoption
    • Authors: Prakashan Chellattan Veettil; Vijesh V. Krishna, Matin Qaim
      Pages: 115 - 134
      Abstract: This article examines the ecosystem impacts of transgenic Bt cotton technology resulting from reduced chemical pesticide use. Employing unique panel data from smallholder farmers in India, negative environmental and health effects of pesticide use are quantified with the environmental impact quotient (EIQ), with and without Bt technology. An environmentally sensitive dynamic production function is estimated, treating the environmental risk of pesticide toxicity as an undesirable output in the production process. Negative externalities are significantly lower in Bt than in conventional cotton. The reduction in EIQ through Bt technology adoption has increased from 39 per cent during 2002–2004 to 68 per cent during 2006–2008. Bt adoption has also contributed to higher environmental efficiency. Environmental efficiency is influenced by the quality of Bt technology: high-quality Bt seeds are associated with higher environmental efficiency than lower-quality seeds.

  • Price linkages in the international skim milk powder market: empirical
           evidence from nonparametric and time-varying copulas
    • Authors: Panos Fousekis; Christos Emmanouilides, Vasilis Grigoriadis
      Pages: 135 - 153
      Abstract: The objective of this article is to assess the integration of the international skim milk powder (SMP) market. This is pursued using monthly data over 2001 to 2014 from the three principal SMP-producing regions (the EU, the USA and Oceania) and nonparametric kernel-based and time-varying copulas. The empirical results point to a strong and an increasing degree of overall price co-movement and to statistically significant probabilities for joint price crashes and booms. While the EU and Oceania have been the regions with the highest degree of integration, the USA has been catching up with them.

  • The distributional effect of a large rice price increase on welfare and
           poverty in Bangladesh
    • Authors: Syed A. Hasan
      Pages: 154 - 171
      Abstract: This paper studies the distributional effect of a sharp rice price increase on welfare and poverty in Bangladesh. We employ household consumption data and include the indirect effect of price responses to estimate the welfare loss. Our findings suggest that the estimated welfare effect can be misleading if household responses to rice consumption and production are ignored. This study further supports the hypothesis that the poor are the main victims of such a shock. Our examination also indicates that a higher rice price may increase or decrease the poverty head-count ratio, depending on the choice of the poverty line, but worsens the country's poverty situation when it is measured by the per capita consumption gap. Our analysis reveals that the government can play a central role to prevent and mitigate such shocks, particularly in the medium to long run. On the methodological side, we observe that consumption provides a more consistent outcome across different methods of analysis than household income.

  • Market integration between surplus and deficit rice markets during global
           food crisis period
    • Authors: Sabiha Akhter
      Pages: 172 - 188
      Abstract: Applying the maximum-likelihood method of co-integration, this study analysed spatial market integration between an adjacent rice surplus market (India) and deficit markets (Bangladesh and Nepal). The main focus is on the government policies of these three rice-producing countries which have been imposed to reduce domestic price volatilities in rice markets during the recent ‘global food crisis’ in 2007–2008. The co-integration tests find that domestic rice prices of India, Bangladesh and Nepal are integrated both in short-run and long-run periods despite the imposition of export restriction policies by India. The reason that prices are transmitted so effectively is most likely to be the widespread informal cross-border trade through the porous borders among India, Bangladesh and Nepal.

  • Resource reallocation and its contribution to productivity growth in
           Australian broadacre agriculture
    • Authors: Yu Sheng; Thomas Jackson, Peter Gooday
      Pages: 56 - 75
      Abstract: This article uses farm survey data to measure the contribution of cross-farm resource reallocation to industry-level productivity growth in Australian broadacre agriculture. We show that resource reallocation between farms mainly occurred between incumbent farms and between farms with different productivity growth. Resource reallocation is estimated to account for around half of the industry-level productivity growth that occurred between 1978 and 2010, and its contribution appears to have increased over time. Moreover, we also show that resource reallocation effects vary across different inputs, partly due to their different mobility. This analysis improves our understanding of how reforms targeting structural adjustment – and the resource reallocation this generates – can influence aggregate productivity growth.
