  • The crisis of Spanish savings banks
    • Authors: Ruiz, J. R; Stupariu, P, Vilarino, A.
      Pages: 1455 - 1477
      Abstract: In a brief period of time, Spanish savings banks (‘cajas’) have changed from being considered a crucial explanatory pillar of Spanish economic development to being seen as synonymous with international systemic risk. This document aims to analyse the circumstances that have brought about this radical change. We will first explore the period between 1997 and 2007, characterised by sustained credit growth and the formation of a real-estate bubble of unprecedented proportions in the Spanish economy. We will then focus on two main aspects related to the banking regulatory framework: the implementation of dynamic provisions by the national bank supervisory authority (Banco de España) designed to cope with expected losses rooted in procyclical bank lending behaviour and the role played by the implementation of the Basel II framework with respect to credit risk. This paper detects important deficiencies in the regulatory framework and supervisory process and concludes that these have been one of the main causes of the Spanish savings banks debacle.

  • Portugals bailout and the crisis of the European Union from a capability
    • Authors: Costa, L; Martins, N. O, de Oliveira, F. G.
      Pages: 1479 - 1496
      Abstract: The global financial crisis revealed the weaknesses of the EU integration process, in general, and of the Eurozone, in particular. The EU institutions responded to the crisis in an inadequate way, in the belief that government debt stabilisation had to be pursued before the economy recovers. This strategy was based on economic forecasting errors, exposing member-states to the speculative behaviour of financial markets, leading to the bailout of countries such as Portugal, and undermining the confidence in the single currency, in the European economy and in the European project itself. We analyse here the crisis of the European Union (EU) in light of the bailout of Portugal, and propose an alternative strategy for Portugal and the EU, drawing upon Amartya Sen’s capability approach.

  • Soft budget constraints and regional industrial policy: reinterpreting the
           rise and fall of DeLorean
    • Authors: Brownlow; G.
      Pages: 1497 - 1515
      Abstract: The rise and fall of DeLorean Motor Cars Limited has traditionally been interpreted as either the result either of John DeLorean’s psychological flaws or as confirming the supposed limitations of activist industrial policy. However when the episode is examined in greater historical detail, neither of these interpretations is compelling. The reinterpretation outlined here draws on institutional analysis as well as a range of archival sources, much of it previously unreleased. The inefficiencies within the original contractual agreement are highlighted. The lack of credibility associated with this agreement was in turn traceable to the institutional environment (with its associated risk–reward implications) under which industrial policy operated. This environment had a political element: it had been distorted by the Troubles and the resulting fears policymakers had of a cumulative causation relationship between violence and unemployment. Officials in Belfast, against Treasury opposition, advocated state-led entrepreneurship as a policy response.

  • Wage-led growth in the EU15 member-states: the effects of income
           distribution on growth, investment, trade balance and inflation
    • Authors: Onaran, O; Obst, T.
      Pages: 1517 - 1551
      Abstract: This paper estimates a multi-country demand-led growth model for the EU15. A decrease in the share of wages in national income in isolation leads to lower growth in Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, whereas it stimulates growth in Austria, Belgium, Denmark and Ireland. However, a simultaneous decline in the wage share leads to an overall decline in EU15 GDP; hence, the EU15 as a whole is a wage-led economy. Furthermore, Austria and Ireland also experience a decline in growth when they decrease their wage share along with their trading partners. The results indicate that the decline in the wage share had significant negative effects on growth in the EU15 and supports the case for wage coordination. We present different wage-led recovery scenarios and the effects on prices, investment and net exports.

  • Implicit asymmetric exchange rate peg under inflation targeting regimes:
           the case of Turkey
    • Authors: Benlialper, A; Cömert, H.
      Pages: 1553 - 1580
      Abstract: Especially after the 2000s, many developing countries let exchange rates float and began implementing inflation targeting (IT) regimes based on mainly manipulation of expectations and aggregate demand. However, most developing countries implementing IT regimes experienced considerable appreciation trends in their currencies. Might have exchange rates been utilised as implicit tools even under IT regimes in developing countries? To answer this question and investigate the determinants of inflation under an IT regime, as a case study, this article analyses the Turkish experience with IT between 2002 and 2008. There are two main findings. First, the evidence from a vector autoregressive (VAR) model suggests that the main determinants of inflation in Turkey during this period are supply-side factors, such as international commodity prices and the variation in exchange rate, rather than demand-side factors. Since the Turkish lira (TL) was considerably over-appreciated during this period, it is apparent that the Turkish Central Bank benefited from the appreciation of the TL in its fight against inflation during this period. Second, our findings suggest that the appreciation of the TL is related to the deliberate asymmetric policy stance of the bank with respect to the exchange rate. Both the econometric analysis from a VAR model and descriptive statistics indicate that appreciation of the TL was tolerated during the period under investigation, whereas depreciation was responded aggressively by the bank. We call this policy stance under IT regimes ‘implicit asymmetric exchange rate peg’. The Turkish experience indicates that as opposed to the rhetoric of central banks in developing countries, IT developing countries may have an asymmetric stance towards exchange rates and favour appreciation of their currencies to hit their inflation targets. In this sense, IT seems to contribute to the ignorance of dangers regarding over-appreciation of currencies in developing countries.

  • Correctly analysing the balance-of-payments constraint on growth
    • Authors: Razmi; A.
      Pages: 1581 - 1608
      Abstract: The balance-of-payments-constrained growth (BPCG) model provides an interesting hypothesis regarding economic growth. The main implication is that world demand places the dominant constraint to which individual country growth adjusts. I discuss this implication and argue that tests of the BPCG model have essentially been tests of the hypothesis that trade is balanced over the long run; a plausible hypothesis but one that need not hold mainly through responses to world demand (as transmitted via income elasticities). I then discuss the role of relative prices and investment, point out logical inadequacies in the traditional BPCG framework and suggest an alternative theoretical framework to investigate its robustness. Our theoretical and empirical explorations suggest that traditional tests of the BPCG model may be misleading. Including investment as a proxy for the capacity to export and addressing endogeneity issues, for example, noticeably weakens the influence of world demand. The evidence presented contributes to reconciling evidence supporting the BPCG hypothesis with recent work that consistently finds an important role for the level of the real exchange rate and investment, independently of world demand.

  • Debt-driven growth? Wealth, distribution and demand in OECD countries
    • Authors: Stockhammer, E; Wildauer, R.
      Pages: 1609 - 1634
      Abstract: The paper investigates the effects of changes in the distribution of income and wealth on aggregate demand and its components. The model of Bhaduri and Marglin is extended to include personal income inequality as well as asset prices and debt. This allows for an evaluation of the wage- or profit-led nature of demand regimes, of the expenditure cascade argument and several hypotheses regarding the effects of wealth and debt. Our estimates are based on a panel of 18 OECD countries covering the period 1980–2013. For the full panel, the average demand regime is found to be wage led. We fail to find effects of personal inequality, but do find strong effects of debt and property prices, which have been the main drivers of aggregate demand in the decade prior to the 2007 crisis.

  • The state advances, the private sector retreats? Firm effects of
           Chinas great stimulus programme
    • Authors: Johansson, A. C; Feng, X.
      Pages: 1635 - 1668
      Abstract: It has been argued that the state sector is advancing at the cost of the private sector in China. To examine this issue, we conduct an empirical analysis in which we exploit the launch of a large stimulus programme in the autumn of 2008. We find that state-owned enterprises (SOEs) are better able to maintain their leverage levels and have better access to both short- and long-term debt compared with private firms after the introduction of the stimulus programme. We also find that preferential access to debt financing does not help SOEs improve their performance. Instead, SOEs perform significantly worse than private firms after the introduction of the stimulus programme. Moreover, political connections obtained through political participation help mitigate the discrimination that private firms face from Chinese banks and help improve firm performance. These results support the conjecture that China’s state sector is advancing, with negative consequences for aggregate performance in the economy.

  • Issues and concerns in developing regulated markets for endangered species
           products: the case of rhinoceros horns
    • Authors: Collins, A; Fraser, G, Snowball, J.
      Pages: 1669 - 1686
      Abstract: A proposal for addressing rhinoceros poaching is to legalise the trade in rhino horn and adopt a regulated market approach, overturning the current trade ban. This orthodox economic prescription aims to reduce incentives to poach endangered wildlife by driving down the market price of their products via auctioned stockpile releases. Biologists are clear, however, that securing a stockpile for some species needs biological success in captive breeding programmes (CBPs), which varies markedly across species and habitats. Rhinoceros herds in a CBP would need spatially extensive terrain and costly permanent security measures; this only appears feasible for the less aggressive ‘white’ rhino. We argue that the market price would actually need to be sustained at a high level to cover protection costs over the longer reproduction cycles in CBPs and that, without extensive monitoring and the correct institutional structures being in place, legalising trade may encourage, rather than prevent, poaching. Supplementary policy measures that differentiate among consumer groups would also likely prove necessary.

  • Tax cuts or social investment? Evaluating the opportunity cost of
           French employment strategy
    • Authors: Carbonnier, C; Palier, B, Zemmour, M.
      Pages: 1687 - 1705
      Abstract: Tax expenditures are widely used by French governments as employment and social policies. Such programmes together amounted to more than 1.3 points of GDP in 2011. Thanks to a systematic review of academic policy evaluations, we assess the efficiency of the different parts of such policies, showing that at least 6 billion is used for policies whose cost is greater than 62,500 per year and job created, and 0.5 billion for policies whose cost is greater than 160,000 per year and job created. We examine the replacement of these tax expenditures by direct public funding for (publicly or privately delivered) "quality" jobs addressing specific social needs. We discuss the conditions under which at least comparable employment performances could be achieved (factoring in the crowding out of privately funded jobs and the properties of created jobs in terms of the service provided or the characteristics of suppliers and consumers) as well as any positive economic and social externalities.

  • A critical assessment of transaction cost theory and governance of public
           services with special reference to water and sanitation
    • Authors: Dagdeviren, H; Robertson, S. A.
      Pages: 1707 - 1724
      Abstract: This paper aims to provide a critical assessment of Oliver Williamson’s work on the choice between public and private governance by focusing on his central proposition that public governance should be considered as an organisation of last resort when all else fails. Our primary argument is that Williamson’s work on public governance reflects an underdeveloped framework, mostly focusing on sovereign administration, and is not suitable for application to a host of other public services. It has the potential to corroborate any governance form that limits the usefulness of transaction cost theory (TCT) as an instrument of analysis and prediction. Although Williamson characterises TCT as an empirical success story, our application of it to the public–private dilemma for the water and sanitation sector finds very little historical and contemporary validity in this view.

  • Reading Keynes in Buenos Aires: Prebisch and the Dynamics of Capitalism
    • Authors: Caldentey, E. P; Vernengo, M.
      Pages: 1725 - 1741
      Abstract: Keynes had a profound influence on Prebisch in terms of the diagnosis about the main failures of market economies and the need to pursue pro-active and anti-cyclical policies. However, Prebisch was critical of some aspects of Keynes’s General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, in particular on the theory of interest and the multiplier. His attitude can be explained by a difference in the object and method of analysis. Prebisch’s interests focussed on dynamics and the cycle, themes that were peripheral to Keynes’s central message. Prebisch’s Keynesian influence and his rejection of some aspects of Keynes’s magnum opus explains why at the same time that Prebisch is often described as the Latin American Keynes, he is portrayed as concerned mainly with the long-run development problem of Latin America and without proper consideration to demand factors as fundamental determinants of output and employment.

  • Liberalism and democracy -- a comparative reading of Eucken and Hayek
    • Authors: Nientiedt, D; Köhler, E. A.
      Pages: 1743 - 1760
      Abstract: The paper compares Friedrich Hayek’s classic analysis of ‘unlimited democracy’ to arguments put forward by Walter Eucken, the founder of German ordoliberalism. It is shown that Eucken’s criticism of democracy is directly related to his liberal conviction: similar to Hayek, Eucken anticipates the possibility of interest groups to engage in rent seeking through the democratic process. In view of Hayek’s distinction between the basic ideal of democracy and its institutional realisation, it is argued that Eucken’s criticism relates to the latter aspect. Furthermore, the paper maintains that a comprehensive liberalism as represented by Eucken and Hayek implies a constitutional concept of democracy.

      Abstract: We draw on the seminal contribution to economics by Luigi Pasinetti, respond to his call to reverse what he saw as the ‘original sin’ of classical economists exacerbated by neoclassical economists, namely the assumption of non-increasing returns to scale, and move towards building a post-classical economics. We outline the contours of a post-classical framework that draws on key themes and contributions from Pasinetti on learning, technical progress, increasing returns, resource creation, trade and catching up, and contributions from within and without economics that are in line with, lend support to and challenge it. We advocate the pressing need and opportune timing for a concerted effort to revitalise ideas from the once vibrant ‘Cambridge School’ of economics and help develop a fresh, more pluralist and inclusive post-classical economics that cuts across divides and opens up opportunities for a less ‘dismal science’.
