    Creative accounting is nothing new for the Eurozone

    Frances Coppola blogs on the Austrian government’s crash investigation into the failure of Hypo Alpe-Adria (latest detail – the biggest participant in the run on the bank was its garantor), also known as Haiderbank, and on the related topic of the Juncker Commission’s “investment plan”. The link is that the investment plan relies on a succession of heroic accounting assumptions to bulk up the final number without putting in any, you know, actual munn, and the Austrians’ response to the Haiderbank’s failure was based on a lot of funny figures. Frances so: But what struck me from this report was the sheer naivety of the government officials involved. They were like children playing with fireworks. The instruments they were handlin...more

    It’s Baaack: Looming Greek Elections Threaten To Re-ignite the Euro Crisis

    If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again……  aka third time unlucky. The Euro crisis has all the signs of being back amongst us, and this time it may be here to stay. After two earlier false alerts – one in July around the collapse of the Portuguese Banco Espirito Santo, and another in October over the state of the Greek bailout negotiations – the announcement this week that the Greek presidential decision was being brought forward to December has sent the markets reeling off into a complete tizzy. In a development reminiscent of the heady days of 2012 yields on Greek 10yr bonds surged over a percentage point in the two days following the announcement, while the stock market fell on Tuesday  by the most on a single day since 1...more

    Three economic history papers you should totally read

    The Berkeley Economic History Lab is blogging a lot of its recent working papers, and they’re a goldmine of great stuff. Here’s Richard Sutch writing in October this year, whose The Liquidity Trap, the Great Depression, and Unconventional Policy: Reading Keynes at the Zero Lower Bound basically recovers an important idea from the General Theory and Keynes’ practice during the Depression. Sutch’s gloss of Keynes is that an important way in which the zero lower bound constraint bites is that there is always a term-structure of interest rates, rather than anything like a single economywide rate of interest. As a result, even if short rates hit the ZLB or even go negative, a large segment of the yield spectrum will still be significantly positive. Th...more

    The EU Fiscal Framework: The Proof of the Pudding

    I have been invited to participate to a round table organized by Bruegel , the Brussels based think-tank, assessing the Fiscal framework in the Eurozone in the present crisis (the complete program is here). In brief, I made the following four points (slides are here).1) Since 2009 there was an unprecedented fiscal consolidation in the EUZ, where the average cyclically adjusted balance improved from -5.4 to -1.1of GDP in 5 years (red line in Fig 1).Yet the aggregate net debt position of the EUZ deteriorated sharply, with the average net debt ratio climbing from 40 to 60 percent of GDP (green line), the economy plunging in a double (possibly triple) dip recession (purple line), and inflation (blue) converging to zero.2) A country-by country disaggregated view makes the p...more
