  • Secular stagnation or financial cycle drag'
    • Authors: Claudio Borio
      Pages: 87 - 98
      Abstract: This speech compares and contrasts two different interpretations of the current plight of the global economy. It argues that the world has been suffering not so much from a structural deficiency in aggregate demand—secular stagnation—but from the aftermath of financial booms gone wrong—financial cycle drag. This perspective suggests that the very low levels of interest rates that have prevailed are not necessarily equilibrium ones—consistent with the “natural rate”. And although it indicates that the headwinds from the financial bust, while very persistent, are temporary, it also points to a number of material risks ahead: further episodes of financial distress, a “debt trap” and, ultimately, a rupture in the open global economic order. To limit these risks, policies should be rebalanced towards structural measures and address more systematically the financial cycle.

  • Does mismeasurement explain low productivity growth'
    • Authors: Chad Syverson
      Pages: 99 - 102
      Abstract: The “mismeasurement hypothesis” holds that the recent slowdown in recorded productivity growth merely reflects a fall-off in our ability to measure productivity rather than an actual deceleration in economic growth, in large part reflecting benefits people gain, but don’t pay for, from using new technology applications. If this hypothesis is valid, we should see that national drops in productivity growth are connected to usage of these services, we should be able to ascertain large gains in surplus related to them, growth in the technology sector should be sharply understated, and labor incomes should be swelling relative to output. None of these arenas show evidence that recent miscounts of aggregate productivity are notably large compared to the past.

  • Did Okun’s law die after the Great Recession'
    • Authors: Giorgio Canarella; Stephen M. Miller
      Abstract: This paper estimates Okun’s law, focusing on piecewise non-linearity in the form of structural breaks and threshold dynamics, and obtains regime-dependent as well as threshold-dependent changes in the unemployment rate. We employ an autoregressive distributed lag version of Okun’s law in first differences, which allows for delayed reactions of the unemployment rate to output growth. Applied to U.S. data over 1949Q1–2015Q4, the empirical analysis characterizes Okun’s law as a three-regime relationship with the first structural break coinciding with the 1973 oil price shock, and the second structural break immediately following the end of the Great Recession. We find support for threshold dynamics in each regime, which suggests that Okun’s law follows complex non-linear dynamics. Okun’s law, as a linear and constant “rule of thumb,” breaks down in each of the three regimes. In each regime, the unemployment rate responds asymmetrically to changes in output. In sum, Okun’s law died during the Great Recession. Only time will tell whether resurrection is feasible.

  • Prices of high-tech products, mismeasurement, and the pace of innovation
    • Authors: David Byrne; Stephen D. Oliner; Daniel E. Sichel
      Abstract: Introduction Two recent papers have made compelling cases that mismeasurement of prices of high-tech products cannot explain the slow pace of labor productivity growth that has prevailed since the mid-2000s. Does that result indicate that mismeasurement of high-tech products has limited implications for patterns of economic growth' The answer in this paper is “no.”. Results We demonstrate that the understatement of price declines for high-tech products in official measures has a dramatic effect on the pattern of multifactor productivity (MFP) growth across sectors. In particular, we show that correcting this mismeasurement implies faster MFP growth in high-tech sectors and slower MFP advance outside the high-tech sector. If MFP growth is taken as a rough proxy for the pace of innovation, our results suggest that innovation in the tech sector has been more rapid than the rate that would be inferred from official statistics (and less rapid outside high-tech). Conclusion These results deepen the productivity puzzle. If the pace of innovation in high-tech sectors has been more rapid than indicated by official statistics, then it is perhaps even more puzzling that overall labor productivity growth has been so sluggish in recent years.

  • The necessity for a strategic approach to monetary policy
    • Authors: Mickey D. Levy
      Abstract: The Fed has a spotty track record, and its discretionary approach to conducting monetary policy will lead to the same mistakes it made in the past. I emphasize the importance of adopting a strategic framework for conducting monetary policy. The Fed has constantly changed the course of monetary policy in response to high-frequency data and other temporary factors. The Fed’s excessive monetary ease has distorted economic and financial behavior. The Fed should base its policy on longer-run objectives rather than short-run economic and financial fluctuations, and communicate these objectives to the public and to financial markets. Under the Financial Choice Act, the Fed would have to establish a strategic guideline, and explain to Congress why monetary policy may be deviating from the guideline. I respect the Fed and see the need for change to maintain its credibility. The Fed must acknowledge its shortfalls and modify its focus.

  • Policy uncertainty and the economic outlook
    • Authors: Douglas Holtz-Eakin
      Abstract: A large cloud of uncertainty hangs over the economic outlook, particularly the outlook for productivity growth and the long-term trend growth of output. This uncertainty stems from three sources: (a) the fiscal outlook, (b) the policy agenda shifting from campaign promises to partisan opportunity, and (c) the large reliance on executive branch actions. I discuss the foundations and likely evolution of policy uncertainty over the initial months of the Trump Administration.

  • Threats to monetary policy independence: reasons to be concerned
    • Authors: David J. Stockton
      Abstract: Several legislative efforts are under way that aim to impose greater congressional oversight of and influence on the monetary policy decision making of the Federal Reserve System. Some of these initiatives might do little harm or even make marginal improvements. But others pose more serious threats to the operational independence of monetary policy. Proposals to require the Federal Reserve to frame monetary policy decisions according to a mathematical formula imply a concrete simplicity of policy that is inaccurate and misleading. And the reporting requirements associated with these proposals threaten to negate the major advantage of monetary policy as a countercyclical weapon—speed. Proposals to subject the non-monetary policy functions of the Fed to the appropriations process provide Congress with additional leverage that could be used to apply pressure to monetary policy decisions. For its part, the Fed should continue to increase transparency through more timely and complete release of relevant information and analysis. To best promote the objectives of stable prices and maximum employment, the operational independence of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decision making needs to be preserved and protected.

  • Comments at the Panel “Responders of First or Last Resort: Central Bank
           Strategies in an Era of Ultra-Low Interest Rates”
    • Authors: Charles L. Evans
      Abstract: There is an emerging consensus among economists that the trend rate of economic growth in the U.S. is much lower now than in the past. In a lower-trend-growth regime, short-term equilibrium real interest rates are lower, all else being equal. In these circumstances monetary policymakers have less room to cut policy rates before hitting the zero lower bound and relying on unconventional policy tools to provide additional accommodation. Moreover, preserving the Fed’s credibility for providing sufficient accommodation to achieve our symmetric inflation objective and maximum employment remains an important consideration. Therefore, risk-management policies favor skewing policy today to lower the chances of facing more difficult zero-lower-bound outcomes in the future.

  • Monetary Policy Accommodation at the Lower Bound
    • Authors: Signe Krogstrup
      Abstract: Monetary policy was too tight in many countries following the financial crisis, due to the lower bound on interest rates. This is likely to have prolonged the recession that followed. This point is illustrated with an assessment of monetary accommodation in the US since the financial crisis, and the accommodation achieved through negative interest rates in countries that have adopted these. The lower bound will likely give rise to considerable economic costs in the future, as it has in the recent past. There is an urgent need to consider how policy tools and frameworks should be adapted.

  • The Competitive Dynamics of the Generic Drug Manufacturing Industry
    • Authors: Evan Hoffman
      Abstract: For decades, brand name drugs have been a cornerstone of growth and innovation for pharmaceutical manufacturers. In recent years, however, a combination of greater demand from the public for competitively price drugs and more frequent patent expirations has set the stage for the rise of generic drugs. The emergence of generics has tilted the competitive landscape of the industry as cheaper production costs for suppliers has had a significant impact on how industry operators interact with their supply chain. The following analysis aims to examine the competitive dynamics of the pharmaceutical sector as generics continue to flood the marketplace.

  • The U.S. Carpet Industry: History, Industry Dynamics, and a Simple Model
           for Short-Term Forecasting
    • Authors: Kevin Swift; Emily Sanchez
      Abstract: This article presents a simple model that can be used to assess the current situation of the carpet industry and develop a short-term outlook for it. Using quarterly data over the time period 1999:Q1–2016:Q2, we build a regression model of U.S. carpet industry shipments. We find that the recent leveling-off of shipments is likely to persist. While housing recovery will aid the demand for carpeting, increases in income are likely to be offsetting, as the switch to alternative floor coverings will be ongoing.

      Abstract: Since the late 1980s, young people aged 18–34 have increasingly stated that their primary reason for increasing their saving rate has been to protect themselves against uncertain future times. The rate of increase in “precautionary” savings exceeds that of all other age groups, and has occurred against a backdrop of declining real income, a tepid economic recovery from the Great Recession of 2008–09, a tightened credit environment, and changing household demographics. This study considers the impact of these and other elements on young adults’ decisions to save for precautionary purposes, and considers what possible impacts these developments might have for broader consumption and production trends in the U.S economy.
