  • Designing the optimal public pension system
    • Authors: Takao Fujii; Fumiaki Hayashi, Jun Iritani, Kazumasa Oguro
      Abstract: This paper uses a two-period overlapping generations model in order to provide a theoretical design for the optimal public pension system based on a partial equilibrium analysis. Household preferences depend on two periods' consumption and leisure and are positively homogeneous of degree m with respect to consumption in the working and retired periods. We present characteristic features of the optimal public pension system in this paper. First, differences in the population growth rate do not affect the large/small relation between the optimal net lifetime burden rates of generations. Second, we present the optimal public pension system explicitly if m

  • Corporation Diversification and Firm Performance: Evidence from Vietnamese
           Listed Firms
    • Authors: Duc Nam Phung; Anil V. Mishra
      Abstract: We examine the effect of corporate diversification on the performance of firms listed on the Vietnamese stock exchanges, using 2744 firm year observations over the period from 2007 to 2012. We find that corporate diversification has a negative impact on firm performance. Our results are robust to various econometric estimation techniques including fixed effect, instrumental fixed effect, Heckman selection model and system generalised method of moments. In the Vietnamese context, the lack of an efficient corporate governance system may encourage firms to follow corporate diversification strategies, thus impairing their performance.

  • Environmental Kuznets Curve with Adjusted Net Savings as a Trade-Off
           Between Environment and Development
    • Authors: Martin Neve; Bertrand Hamaide
      Abstract: The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesises that emissions first increase at low stages of development then decrease once a certain threshold has been reached. The EKC concept is usually used with per capita Gross Domestic Product as the explanatory variable. As others, we find mixed evidence, at best, of such a pattern for CO2 emissions with respect to per capita GDP. We also show that the share of manufacture in GDP and governance/institutions play a significant role in the CO2 emissions–income relationship. As GDP presents shortcomings in representing income, development in a broad perspective or human well-being, it is then replaced by the World Bank's Adjusted Net Savings (ANS, also known as Genuine Savings). Using the ANS as an explanatory variable, we show that the EKC is generally empirically supported for CO2 emissions. We also show that human capital and natural capital are the main drivers of the downward sloping part of the EKC.

  • Australian Bond Excess Returns: An Asset Allocation Perspective
    • Authors: Rui Chen; Meng Wang, Jiri Svec
      Abstract: We examine the out-of-sample predictability of excess returns in the Australian government bond market. Our results confirm previous findings that a linear combination of forward rates provides a statistically significant prediction of bond excess returns on 1- to 5-year maturity bonds. However, from an asset allocation perspective, our predictive model fails to obtain positive economic utility against the no-predictability benchmark. Our results are robust to the sample period and different parameter assumptions.

  • Government Size and Stochastic Growth
    • Authors: Shin-Chyang Lee; Shang-Fen Wu, Cheng-Te Lee
      Abstract: This paper analyses the effects of the size of government on economic growth in a stochastic endogenous growth model involving the supply-side effect and demand-side effect produced by government spending. We show that a rise in the government spending affects economic growth through three channels, including the crowding-out effect, the spin-off effect and the resource mobilisation effect. We demonstrate that there exists an optimal size of government that maximises the economic growth rate.

  • Endogenous Growth and Intellectual Property Rights: A North–South
           Modelling Proposal with Population Ageing
    • Authors: Mónica L. Azevedo; Óscar Afonso, Sandra T. Silva
      Abstract: This paper studies the effect of intellectual property rights (IPR) on economic growth, in the light of population ageing, i.e., in a more realistic context. The analysis is motivated by the implications of population ageing on economic growth. Moreover, this study analyses this relationship in a north–south framework where there is a healthcare sector. We conclude that population ageing has no impact on the sign of the IPR effect on economic growth. However, it positively affects the steady-state growth rate. Finally, under some conditions, the presence of the healthcare sector also increases the steady-state growth rate.

  • Economic Integration, Growth and Income Distribution
    • Authors: Kuo-Hsing Kuo; Cheng-Te Lee
      Abstract: This paper constructs a two-sector growth model with heterogeneous labour, to explore the impact of the economic integration on growth and income distribution. There are two sectors in each country, including the consumption-good sector and the R&D sector. We suppose that the R&D sector produces new blueprints or ideas for these innovations, and hence provides the engine of growth. Assume that the talent's distribution of workers is the uniform distribution. We show that the economic integration will stimulate the developing countries' economic growth and then decrease its income inequality. In addition, we also demonstrate that if the growth rate of the advanced country rises after the integration, then income inequality of that will increase, and vice versa.

  • Monetary Policy Transmission in Vietnam: Evidence from a VAR Approach
    • Authors: Xuan Vinh Vo; Phuc Canh Nguyen
      Abstract: A thorough understanding of the transmission mechanism is a key requirement for central banks for successful implementation of monetary policy. This paper investigates the existence of the interest rate channel, exchange rate channel and asset price channel in Vietnam by employing a vector autoregressive model analysis using monthly data ranging from 2003M1 to 2012M12. The results from the analysis present evidence for a cost channel. However, we find no evidence for the existence of an exchange rate channel or asset price channel of monetary transmission in Vietnam.

  • Asymmetry Effects of Exchange Rate Changes on Domestic Production:
           Evidence from Nonlinear ARDL Approach
    • Authors: Mohsen Bahmani-Oskooee; Amirhossein Mohammadian
      Pages: 181 - 191
      Abstract: Currency depreciation is said to have positive or negative effects on domestic production. Previous studies that tried to address this issue using Australian data have been inconclusive at best but mostly showed no effects. One common feature of all studies is that they have assumed that the effects of exchange rate changes are symmetric. In this paper, we use the concept of partial sum and separate appreciations from depreciations to test whether the effects are symmetric or asymmetric. Application of the nonlinear ARDL approach of Shin et al. (2014) reveals that indeed the effects of changes in the real effective exchange rate of the Australian dollar are asymmetric in the short run as well as in the long run. While in the short run both appreciations and depreciations affect Australian domestic production, only effects of appreciation last into the long run, a unique finding.

  • How Well Does the Australian Aged Pension Provide Social Insurance'
    • Authors: Emily Dabbs; Cagri Kumru
      Pages: 192 - 211
      Abstract: Social security plays an essential role in an economy, but if designed incorrectly, it can distort individuals' labour supply and savings behaviour. We explore how well the Australian means-tested pension system provides social insurance by changing the settings of the system and calculating the impact on welfare. In order to exclude trivial welfare gains, we keep the cost of the programmes constant. We find that the means-tested pension system is welfare reducing, but does provide a better outcome than a PAYG system of equivalent cost. We also find that if the benefit amount is held constant, and hence the cost of the pension programme is allowed to vary, a taper rate of 1.0 is optimal. However, once we hold the cost of the programme constant, a universal benefit scheme provides the best welfare outcome.

  • Do Education and Sex Matter for Intergenerational Earnings Mobility'
           Some Evidence from Australia
    • Authors: David Fairbrother; Renuka Mahadevan
      Pages: 212 - 226
      Abstract: This paper analyses the intergenerational earnings mobility in Australia for all combinations of mothers, fathers, sons and daughters. We find that mobility is highest between parents and children of the opposite sex. Daughters are more mobile than sons with respect to fathers' earnings, but there is no statistical difference between the sexes' mobility with respect to mothers' earnings. We also consider how differing levels of mobility between the sexes may be related to the education level of the children. It was found that the father–son elasticity increases with son's education level and that the difference between son–father and daughter–father mobility may be associated with the higher levels of education obtained by females from less affluent backgrounds.

  • Monetary Policy Announcements, Communication, and Stock Market Liquidity
    • Authors: Jieun Lee; Doojin Ryu, Ali M. Kutan
      Pages: 227 - 250
      Abstract: Using the high-quality intraday transaction data from 2001–2012, we investigate changes in stock market liquidity in response to the monetary policy announcements of the Bank of Korea (BOK). We find that liquidity impairment associated with informed trading occurs prior to the announcements but it disappears subsequent to the global financial crisis. In addition, liquidity impairment appears to become more severe with insufficient experts' predictability and accuracy rather than with policy rate change itself and unscheduled announcements. Finally, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announcements, changes in the Volatility Index (VIX), and trading by foreign investors play a limited role in explaining stock market liquidity changes. Overall, results indicate that central bank communication plays a significant role in reducing liquidity impairment by enhancing the predictability of policy actions, and therefore, mitigating information asymmetry.

  • Optimal Intertemporal Consumption and Involuntary Memories of Consumption
    • Authors: Stan Miles; Peter Smoczynski
      Pages: 251 - 273
      Abstract: Recent studies introduce the notion of treating autobiographical memories of past pleasurable experiences as assets and expanding the discounted utility model to include the utility of memories of past consumption. Recent studies in psychology have found that involuntary autobiographical memories are common in everyday life. This paper builds on these two strands in the literature by expanding the discounted utility model to include the utility of involuntary memories of past consumption. Optimal control theory is used to develop a continuous-time optimal consumption model that takes into account the fact that consumption may generate involuntary memories that arrive at random times. The model is used in an in-depth analysis of optimal consumption with memories. It is shown that memories shift consumption to earlier times. This effect gets weaker as the time horizon gets longer, and it vanishes entirely when the time horizon is infinite.

  • “Fair go” for all' Wealth and Risk Aversion of Australian
    • Authors: Stamatios Tsigos; Kevin Daly
      Pages: 274 - 300
      Abstract: A mean-variance framework is applied to Australian household financial portfolios in order to provide estimates of relative risk aversion in the economy. Controlling for various socio-economic characteristics, we explore whether risk aversion heterogeneity is a function of wealth heterogeneity. In contrast to most studies, we find evidence of very high risk aversion amongst the majority of households of poor households but vastly lower risk aversion amongst the high percentiles in the wealth distribution. Applying a first differences model across three survey waves spanning 2002 to 2010, we find that risk tolerance increases significantly with wealth. Risk tolerance is positively associated with mortgage payments, but rental payments have no relationship. In addition, we found no evidence that holding a university education has any discernible impact on risk aversion. Lastly, we present some preliminary findings as to the impact of financial advice on observed risk aversion. Financial advice is found to accentuating risk aversion, particularly amongst the wealthiest households. The findings have potential implications for the distribution of wealth in Australia that has received renewed interest recently.

      Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between income and environmental quality using environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) hypothesis. The hypothesised link is tested using time-series analysis of 22 countries over the period 1961–2011. The degree of environmental impacts of economic activity is measured using ecological footprint (EF) per capita as explanatory variable, while real gross domestic product (GDP) per capita and its quadratic and cubic forms are used as predictor variables in these countries. First, the EKC hypothesis is tested through examining the relationship between EF and GDP using linear, quadratic and cubic functions. Further, the long-run relationship between EF and GDP is investigated using a vector error correction model. It was found that there is a cointegrated relationship between the variables in almost all countries, which was statistically significant, and EKC supported in 10 countries. Additionally, almost all error correction terms are correct in sign and are significant, which implies that some percentage of disequilibria in EF in the previous year adjusts back to the long-run equilibrium in the current year. Therefore, an efficient trade-off between environmental protection and economic benefits should be taken, and EF should be reduced through changing consumption patterns, improving the efficiency of use of resources and cleaner technology choices.
