Summary Vol. 26, No. 3 | September 2017

Summary Fall 2017

This issue of the Summary opens with a Strategic Analysis that uses the Institute’s stock-flow model to assess the effect of the Trump administration’s policy promises on the recovery from the Great Recession. A policy note investigates the trends in income inequality in the United States over the past four decades.

Working papers included in this issue examine the literature on stock-flow consistent macroeconomic models; the determinants of government bond yields for the eurozone; the potential job-creation effects of the Trump administration’s proposed infrastructure investment; the role of trust in an issuer’s promise of redemption in the valuation of monetary instruments; Germany’s rejection of Keynesianism as the root of the eurozone’s economic woes; the quality of a synthetic dataset that seeks to provide complete information on household demographics in Turkey; the gender divisions of time use in Turkey and how they change over the life cycle; macroeconomic conditions in the United States during the Great Recession and their effect on time use in households with children; and the impact of public spending on economic development in G-20 countries.
