Do capital markets predict problems in large commercial banks?

In the present climate of intense debate over deposit insurance reform, the nature and limits of market discipline become especially important.

Rumors of the death of the Phillips curve appear to have been greatly exaggerated.

The author takes the view that the primary reason for its longevity is that the Phillips curve has been an extremely robust empirical relationship, showing little or no sign of instability over the past 35 years.> He examines an array of empiracal evidence and finds that the Phillips curve has exhibited remarkable stability, even across data for what must be the most ...
