Government Ownership of Banks, Institutions and Economic Growth

We present new cross-country evidence that reveals that during 1995-2007, government ownership of banks has been robustly associated with higher long-run growth rates. We also show that previous results suggesting that government ownership of banks is associated with lower long-run growth rates are not robust to conditioning on more "fundamental" determinants of economic growth.

China's Overt Economic Rise and Latent Human Capital Investment: Achieving Milestones and Competing for the Top

We provide an overview of China's economic rise through time. Over the past decade, China has maintained 10% growth in GDP, albeit with a GDP per capita at the low level of a developing country. Its tremendous economic development has overlooked the growing social inequalities and rising resentments of the 'cheap' workers and those laid off. The main contributor to its ascension is international trade ...

This paper examines the forecasting performance of a broad monetary aggregate (M3) in predicting euro area inflation. Excess liquidity is measured as the difference between the actual money stock and its fundamental value, the latter determined by a money demand function.

Regionale Unterschiede in China: Konvergenz noch zu schwach

Im Verlauf der rasanten wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung Chinas haben sich enorme regionale Unterschiede herausgebildet. In der leistungsstärksten Provinz (Shanghai) war das Pro-Kopf-Einkommen 2007 fast zehnmal so hoch wie in der wirtschaftlich schwächsten Provinz (Guizhou). Eine Verringerung der Disparitäten zwischen den Provinzen ist bisher nicht erkennbar. Etwas anders ist die Situation auf der Ebene ...
