Conference Paper
Comments on \\"Understanding global imbalances\\" by Richard Cooper

In short, Cooper tells us not to worry about our current account or its underlying causes. I have a much darker and, I believe, more accurate view of our current account deficit. While I agree with much of what Cooper says, I disagree most strongly with his central thesis that the current account portends no major problem. To the contrary, the current account is symptomatic of a longterm generational policy that has been slowly, but surely driving our nation broke. When the last straw hits the camel?s back, which could happen any day now, we?re going to see the bond and stock markets crash, ...

Summary panel: Japan's experience with zero interest rates

The current policy stance of the BOJ has an automatic stabilizer element in it despite the fact that we have hit the zero rate bound. That is to say, the promise to "keep the zero rate until deflationary concerns are over" puts downward pressure on long-term interest rates when people see negative signs about the economy because they expect the zero rate to stay for a longer period of time. A similar thing will happen anyway. But the current commitment seems to have strengthened the effect.

Conference Paper
The impact of economic slowdowns on financial institutions and their regulators; a symposium jointly sponsored by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Journal of Financial Intermediation April 17-19, 2002

The 1990 recession had a significant impact on the financial landscape both in the United States and in the rest of the world. Large numbers of financial institutions failed, problems in the financial sector reduced credit availability to the real economy, and the recovery from the recession was unusually slow. Are future economic slowdowns likely to have a similar impact on the financial services industry? How are economic slowdowns likely to affect bank financial condition, bank risk management, and bank and financial holding company supervision?

America's historical experience with low inflation

The inflation of the 1970s was a marked deviation from America's typical peacetime historical pattern as a hard-money country. We should expect America to continue to be a hard-money--low inflation--country in the future, at least in peacetime. The low rate of future inflation that we thus forecast changes the balance of macroeconomic risks and opportunities. The risk of debt-deflation-mediated recessions is somewhat higher because a low trend rate of goods-and-services price index inflation somewhat increases the changes of deflation. But it does not raise such risks as much as one might ...

American leadership in the human capital century: have the virtues of the past become the vices of the present?

America led other nations by a wide margin in the provision of general, formal education to the masses and did so because of characteristics -virtues -that were shaped by New World endowments and republican ideology. Almost all of these virtues are now being questioned, and in the twenty-first century an entirely new set of virtues could emerge.
