  • Our troubling fiscal situation
    • Authors: Douglas W. Elmendorf
      Abstract: Federal debt is on an unsustainable path. Low interest rates mean that we do not need to reduce budget deficits immediately and that we should do more public investment. However, we will need to make deficit-reducing changes eventually, and we should set those changes in motion now and use the extra time provided by low interest rates to phase in the changes gradually. The largest long-term changes will come through tax increases rather than spending cuts: the appetite for significant reductions in the big benefit programs is very limited among voters and their representatives on both sides of the aisle. Moreover, we should reduce deficits in ways that do not “share the sacrifice” as much as “steer the sacrifice” toward people who have been doing better. I worry that, in the next economic downturn, we will not undertake the fiscal expansion we should. We will have fiscal space in an economic sense, but I fear that too many people will pick that moment to be especially concerned about deficits (as occurred in 2011 and 2012). We have a uniquely inefficient healthcare system in this country. We probably should and probably will make more policy changes that amount to price-setting, rather than relying on market forces to hold down prices.

  • The business cycle is alive and well
    • Authors: James H. Stock
      Abstract: Have the dynamic relations among macro variables changed markedly since the financial crisis' A dynamic factor model provides consistent evidence of stability across 248 variables The Great Moderation appears to be ongoing; you cannot reject the hypothesis that the standard deviation of four-quarter GDP growth is the same over 1984–2007 and over 2008–2018. Even so, the apparent slower GDP growth trend implies a substantial probability that a recession may start in the next 2 years, even not adding the risk that some large unprecedented negative event may occur. Because of low interest rates and already-large deficits, the ability of Congress and the Fed to mitigate the effects of a recession are historically constrained.

  • Nudging: a very short guide
    • Authors: Cass R. Sunstein
      Abstract: This brief essay offers a general introduction to the idea of nudging, along with a list of ten of the most important “nudges.” It also provides a short discussion of the question whether to create a separate “behavioral insights unit” or instead to rely on existing institutions.

  • A look back at a luck-filled career
    • Authors: John Silvia
      Abstract: A successful career as a business economist first depends upon knowing your subject. Content, more than show, matters. Nonetheless, the ability to communicate that knowledge is far more important. When making a presentation, do not lecture. Present your materials as a discussion. As a manager, hire people smarter than you in areas you fall short. Put ego aside and draw upon other talents when asking people to investigate and deal with an issue, but don’t tell them how, nor what, is the answer. Answers reveal themselves as the evidence is examined. As a member of a staff, bring your skills to any task that senior management requests even if it isn’t in your area of expertise.

  • From Keynesianism to the knowledge economy: the rise and fall of growth
           regimes
    • Authors: Peter A. Hall
      Abstract: This essay explores the evolution of postwar growth regimes, understood as the economic and social policies used by governments to pursue economic growth in the developed democracies. It charts movement in growth regimes from an era of modernization stretching from 1950 to 1975, through an era of liberalization running from 1980 to the late 1990s, to a subsequent era of knowledge-based growth. It argues that the capacities of democratic governments to pursue specific growth regimes depend, not only on economic circumstances, but also on evolving electoral conditions, marked especially by changes in the cleavage structures conditioning partisan electoral strategies. The essay concludes by exploring the implications of contemporary electoral politics for the development of growth regimes appropriate to a knowledge economy.

  • Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho: flexible labor contracts with real option
           characteristics
    • Authors: Julie Byrne; Rowena A. Pecchenino
      Abstract: What is the strategic value of flexible labor contracts to workers' To answer this question, we examine workers’ labor supply decisions when choosing among alternative work arrangements ranging from permanent and pensionable to fixed-term, shift work, zero-hour, and on-call to gigs. We then introduce the concept of real options as a framework in which to analyze contract valuation from the workers’ perspective. For a non-standard employment contract to have real option value, the contract must both lead to future choices and enable advantageous access to future opportunities. Using case studies from a diverse set of industries and guided by the real options framework, we examine when contract flexibility contains valuable real option characteristics for the utility maximizing worker, or the profit maximizing firm, or, surprisingly, both.

  • Are yield-curve/monetary cycles’ approaches enough to predict
           recessions'
    • Authors: Azhar Iqbal; Sam Bullard; John Silvia
      Abstract: This paper proposes a new framework that identifies a threshold between the fed funds rate and the 10-year Treasury yield and, when the threshold is breached, the risk of a recession in the near future is significant. Our framework predicted several recessions before the yield curve inversion point/monetary cycles’ approaches. In addition, our framework accurately forecasted peaks in the S&P 500 index.

  • Monetary policy and risk management at a time of low inflation and low
           unemployment
    • Authors: Jerome H. Powell
      Abstract: I do not see it as likely that the Phillips curve is dead, or that it will soon exact revenge. It is more likely that many factors, including better conduct of monetary policy over the past few decades, have greatly reduced, but not eliminated, the effects that tight labor markets have on inflation. However, no one fully understands the nature of these changes or the role they play in the current context. Common sense suggests we should beware when forecasts predict events seldom before observed in the economy.

  • Oil and the economy: evolution not revolution
    • Authors: Mine Yücel
      Abstract: Oil price shocks have had significant effects on the U.S. economy, keeping energy supply, energy policy, and energy security always in focus. The U.S. energy industry has become more efficient and productive, with increased output despite a smaller energy sector. Since the oil price shocks of the 70s, both the impact of oil price shocks and the way we think about them have changed. The impact of an oil price shock on GDP and core inflation is much smaller in magnitude than in the past and depends on the source of the price shock. The recent shale boom in the U.S. has significantly increased oil production to a record high. The short-cycle supply response of shale producers to price changes have trimmed the peaks and troughs of oil prices in the medium term. The shale boom has lowered our dependence on foreign oil and made us less vulnerable to a classic oil supply shock, but we need to contemplate the vulnerabilities that arise from the externalities of our energy use, which will become more critical as we go forward.

  • Explaining the slow U.S. recovery: 2010–2017
    • Authors: Ray C. Fair
      Abstract: This paper argues that the slow U.S. recovery after the 2008–2009 recession was due to sluggish government spending. The analysis uses a structural macroeconometric model. Conditional on government policy, the errors in predicting output for the 2009.4–2017.4 period are within what one would expect historically. Productivity and labor force participation are endogenous variables in the model, and so their behaviors in this period are a consequence of the slow growth rather than a cause.

  • Improving the usefulness of the Purchasing Managers’ Index
    • Authors: Rolando F. Peláez
      Abstract: A structural break in the GDP growth—PMI relationship occurred in 2004Q1. The break is likely the result of a secular slowdown in average GDP growth. PMI-based forecasts of GDP growth that ignore the break are biased. Modeling the break eliminates forecast bias, reduces root mean square forecast error, and significantly increases the signaling power of the PMI.

  • Retirement concerns and planning of cooperative members: a study in the
           Dutch healthcare sector
    • Authors: George Apostolakis; Gert Van Dijk
      Abstract: Retirement planning is a key component in achieving goals and fulfilling expectations. Although several socioeconomic and psychological factors associated with retirement planning have been reported in the literature, little is known about the influence that specific retirement-related issues have on retirement planning. We examine the influence of five concerns—the individual’s financial situation, living situation, care provision, health condition, and loneliness—on retirement planning. In addition, we investigate the influence of these concerns on individuals’ perceptions of their ideal post-retirement situations in terms of financial standards. Our dataset is derived from a 2010 web-based survey of the care and well-being sector in the Netherlands.

  • Behavioral attitudes toward current economic events: a lesson from
           neuroeconomics
    • Authors: Kavous Ardalan
      Abstract: This paper discusses the implications of neuroeconomics with respect to behavioral attitudes toward the interpretation of current economic events. To this end it first brings to the fore two aspects of neuroeconomics, namely, that thinking imposes strain on the mind, and that brain activity is a scarce resource. It then discusses how this affects the attitude of an economist trained in a specific school of thought. Without exposure to other schools of economic thought, the economist will have unknowingly biased views.
