The cost of capital for securities firms in the United States and Japan

The authors use stock market valuations to construct estimates of the cost of capital for five U.S. and four Japanese securities firms in 1982-91. They seek explanations for the observed capital cost differences in macroeconomic, risk, policy, and industrial organization factors. Their analysis also contrasts the gap in capital costs between U.S. and Japanese securities firms with the corresponding gap for industrial firms and banks.

The baby boom generation and aggregate savings

Many analysts predict a resurgence in national savings as baby boomers approach retirement. This analysis of demographic trends and survey measures of savings and income suggests that such expectations may be ill founded. Although baby boomer saving rates will likely rise over the next twenty years, aggregate saving may not increase because other, low-saving age groups will be claiming an increasing share of the population. Moreover, despite a reputation for free spending, many baby boomers have accumulated substantial savings already and may not raise their saving rates aggressively in their ...

In brief: high foreign real interest rates and investment in the 1990s

This article argues that high interest rates abroad have substantially depressed private investment in most foreign members of the Group of Seven during the 1990s. Business investment has been especially hard hit and housing construction disrupted, although the effect on housing has been offset in some countries by stimulative fiscal policies. The author estimates that overall, high interest rates have reduced output in the foreign G-7 by 2 1/2 to 4 1/4 percent per year on average over 1990-93.
