Effective Eurozone QE: Size matters more than risk-sharing

Francesco Giavazzi, Guido Tabellini 17 January 2015

a

A

Now that a European quantitative easing (QE) is almost a sure thing, the question is how it will be implemented. Implementation details are of first-order importance for the success of the programme. Fudges or opaque wording are to be avoided at all costs, because QE also works through expectations. Indeed, the experience of other major central banks suggests that announcement effects are key.

Risk-pooling amongst central banks?

Most of the attention so far has been on risk-sharing.

Walking wounded: The British economy in the aftermath of World War I

Nicholas Crafts 27 August 2014

a

A

World War I was not over by Christmas of 1914. It was a prolonged, brutal, and expensive conflict.  Britain incurred 715,000 military deaths (with more than twice that number wounded), the destruction of 3.6% of its human capital, 10% of its domestic and 24% of its overseas assets, and spent well over 25% of its GDP on the war effort between 1915 and 1918 (Broadberry and Harrison, 2005).  Yet that was far from the sum of the losses that the Great War inflicted on the British economy; economic damage continued to accrue throughout the 1920s and beyond.

Secular stagnation: Facts, causes, and cures – a new Vox eBook

Coen Teulings, Richard Baldwin 10 September 2014

Teaser from original column posted on 15 August 2014

Six years after the Crisis and the recovery is still anaemic despite years of zero interest rates. Is ‘secular stagnation’ to blame? This column introduces an eBook that gathers the views of leading economists including Summers, Krugman, Gordon, Blanchard, Koo, Eichengreen, Caballero, Glaeser, and a dozen others. It is too early to tell whether secular stagnation is really secular, but if it is, current policy tools will be obsolete. Policymakers should start thinking about potential solutions.

Debt-for-equity swaps offer Greece a better way

Peter Allen, Barry Eichengreen, Gary Evans 28 February 2014

a

A

Last week, Eurogroup finance ministers in their wisdom decided that there would be no debt relief or restructuring for Greece until the end of the summer. Evidently they wish to avoid exciting voters in the European Parliament elections in May. This is regrettable, since it only puts off the inevitable and forces the Troika to use smoke and mirrors to fill the government’s funding gap.
