Understanding Government Finance

#ad
BondEconomics #ad - The focus is on the types of constraints such a government faces. Some of the complications seen in real-world government finance are then added onto this simplified framework.

Breakeven Inflation Analysis

#ad
BondEconomics #ad - The great inflation of the 1970s in the developed countries provoked strong economic and political reactions. However, if one wants to delve into the analysis, it is necessary to come to grips with the complications in the subject. Is the forecast biased? are there technical factors in the bond market that affect pricing? The objective of this report is to offer an intermediate-level introduction to these issues.

In addition to being of interest to investors looking for protection against inflation, these bonds also provide a market-based measure of inflation expectations. The united kingdom launched the first modern inflation-linked bonds in 1981. For those with a casual interest in the subject, it is probably good enough to view those inflation breakeven rates as a market-implied forecast for inflation.

Breakeven Inflation Analysis #ad - Since investors have “skin in the game, ” the resulting forecasts might be better than a purely survey-based inflation forecast. More reliable inflation forecasts should be useful for policymakers that aim to control inflation. This report discusses the breakeven inflation rate that is implied by pricing in the fixed income markets.

The target audience is either those with an interest in finance and who are unfamiliar with inflation-linked bonds or economists who want to understand better the factors that affect inflation breakeven rates. In finance, investors searched for ways to protect themselves from inflation.

Abolish Money From Economics!

#ad
BondEconomics #ad - We need to instead focus our attention on non-monetary reforms. This book consists of 22 essays that discuss the role of money within economic theory, and the controversies raised by debates about the role of money. Economists have wasted considerable time discussing reforms to the monetary system, Positive Money, such as Quantitative Easing, and Helicopter Money.

The important psychological role of money within society has been transferred to monetary aggregates, and they are given far more significance than they deserve. We live in a monetary economy, so it is not surprising that money plays an important role within economic theory. The tone is informal, as the theoretical debates are translated into plain language.

Abolish Money From Economics! #ad - The argument of this book is that this role has become too important, and has warped our ability to think about the economy.
