    Description: This paper introduces new data on the term in office of central bank governors in 137 countries for 1970-2004. Our panel models show that the probability that a central bank governor is replaced in a particular year is positively related to the share of the term in office elapsed, political and regime instability, the occurrence of elections, and inflation. The latter result suggests that the turnover rate of central bank governors (TOR) is a poor indicator of central bank independence. This is confirmed in models for cross-section inflation in which TOR becomes insignificant once its endogeneity is taken into account.

    Description: This paper analyses revisions of Swiss current account data, taking into account the actual data revision process and the implied types of revisions. In addition we investigate whether the first release of current account data can be improved upon by the use of survey results as gathered by the KOF Swiss Economic Institute, ETH Zurich. An answer in the affirmative indicates that it is possible to improve first releases and thereby enhance the current assessment of the Swiss economy.

    Description: This study applies parametric distance functions to estimate the efficiency of foreign banks in Australia, and subsequently employs extreme bounds analysis to establish the determinants of foreign bank efficiency that are robust to model specification. The limited global advantage hypothesis of Berger et al (2000) is supported. Following clients is found to reduce the efficiency of the profit-creation process. The market share of the incumbent banks acts as a barrier to entry to efficiency in the retail market, with acquisition of a domestic bank reducing this effect. Internet-based bank product delivery reduces the efficiency of profit creation in the initial phases of operation, and parent profits do not improve efficiency in the host market.

    Description: Die vorliegende Studie wurde im ifo Arbeitsbereich Branchenforschung erstellt und im Frühjahr 2005 abgeschlossen. Auftraggeber war das Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Arbeit. Gegenstand der Studie sind der Stand und die Perspektiven der „New Economy“ in Deutschland sowie ein Vergleich mit fünf anderen Mitgliedstaaten der Europäischen Gemeinschaft (Frankreich, Großbritannien, Italien, Niederlande und Schweden) in Hinblick auf die Diffusion und die Wirkungen des Einsatzes moderner Informations- und Kommunikationstechniken (IKT). In methodischer Hinsicht basieren die Analysen auf einem meso-ökonomischen Vorgehen, bei dem vier Branchen beispielhaft untersucht wurden: der Maschinenbau, der Fahrzeugbau, der Bankensektor und der Handel. Die Fragestellung wird interdisziplinär angegangen. Ausgehend von der vorhandenen wissenschaftlichen Literatur zur „New Economy“ wird eine Synopse bisheriger Ergebnisse angefertigt und in Kooperation mit Professor Jan-Egbert Sturm, Universität Konstanz, die wirtschaftstheoretischen Wirkungszusammenhänge, insbesondere die meist nicht explizit genannten Annahmen, aufgedeckt. Mit Hilfe ökonometrischer Schätzansätze werden verschiedene Modelle auf den Zusammenhang zwischen dem Einsatz von IKT und dem Anstieg der Arbeitsproduktivität getestet. Diese Arbeiten wurden von Cambridge Econometrics durchgeführt, einem Kooperationspartner, der über eine europäische, nach Sektoren und Ländern disaggregierte Datenbasis verfügt. Qualitative Untersuchungen, Fachgespräche und die Auswertung von Erhebungen zum Einsatz von IKT haben die Branchenexperten des ifo Instituts geleitet und unter Verwendung der aus den verschiedenen Analysen gewonnenen Ergebnisse eine abschließende Bewertung für jede einzelne Branche erstellt. Aus der Aggregation der Branchenresultate werden Schlussfolgerungen für den Stand der Diffusion der IKT in Deutschland und ihre potenziellen Wirkungen auf Produktivität und Wachstum gezogen.

    Description: We investigate whether temporary members of the UN Security Council receive favorable treatment from the World Bank, using panel data for 157 countries over the period 1970-2004. Our results indicate a robust positive relationship between temporary UN Security Council membership and the number of World Bank projects a country receives, even after accounting for economic and political factors, as well as regional and country effects. The size of World Bank loans, however, is not affected by UN Security Council membership.

    Description: Nowadays, it is widely believed that greater disclosure and clarity over policy may lead to greater predictability of central bank actions. We examine whether communication by the European Central Bank (ECB) adds information compared to the information provided by a Taylor rule model in which real time expected inflation and output are used. We use five indicators of ECB communication that are all based on the ECB President's introductory statement at the press conference following an ECB policy meeting. Our results suggest that even though the indicators are sometimes quite different from one another, they add information that helps predict the next policy decision of the ECB. Furthermore, also when the interbank rate is included in our Taylor rule model, the ECB communication indicators remain significant.

    Description: This paper estimates forward-looking Taylor rules for the euro area. Using the asymmetries in inflation and cyclical output developments across countries, we investigate the adequacy of the single monetary policy for each of the EuropeanMonetary Union (EMU) member countries. Notable differences emerge across the countries. Taking a euro area perspective, we also show that it depends upon the underlying country weighting scheme in the monetary decision process of the ECB whether or not there has been a synchronisation of business and inflation cycles among the EMU member countries over the years. Finally, we produce an estimate of the actual policy weights the ECB has implicitly attached to each of the member countries. Developments in small member countries have received more than proportional weights in actual monetary policy decisions of the ECB.

    Description: Using panel data for 188 countries over the period 1970-2002 this paper empirically analyzes the influence of the IMF and the World Bank on voting patterns in the UN General Assembly. Countries receiving adjustment programs and larger non-concessional loans from the World Bank vote more frequently in line with the average G7 country. The same is true for countries obtaining non-concessional IMF programs. Regarding voting coincidence with the US, World Bank (concessional and non-concessional) loans have a significant impact, while the IMF has not. These results are robust to the inclusion of control variables and method of estimation.
