  1. The Kennedy–Johnson Tax Cut

    The Kennedy–Johnson Tax Cut

    Martin F.J. Prachowny
    The 1964 Kennedy–Johnson tax cut is often cited as the single most successful application of Keynesian stabilization policy. The author challenges this orthodox historical view by exposing the haphazard planning, simplistic economic theorizing, irreconcilable numerical projections, and partisan political influences on the Council of Economic Advisers.

  2. Regulatory Reform and Competitiveness in Europe, 2

    Regulatory Reform and Competitiveness in Europe, 2

    Edited by Giampaolo Galli, Jacques Pelkmans
    Concerns about European prospects for competitiveness, jobs and growth are high on the European Union agenda and regulatory reform, both at national and EU levels, is widely recognised as a crucial tool for improving the performance of European companies. Despite the single market, selective sectoral regulatory reform and certain reforms at the national level, regulation in Europe still tends to discourage new entrants, impede new production methods and inhibit the exit of existing competitors. It often increases costs without providing compensatory benefits, reduces operational flexibility and distorts capital expenditure, creating obstacles to innovation. The authors in this book argue that regulatory reform can, more often than not, help improve the competitiveness of companies while generating net growth effects for the European Union as a whole.

  5. The Political Economy of Pension Reform in Central–Eastern Europe

    The Political Economy of Pension Reform in Central–Eastern Europe

    Katharine Müller
    This highly topical book focuses on a particularly interesting area of post–1989 social policy. Existing public pension systems in Central–Eastern Europe underwent fundamental change as Latin–American style pension reforms were adopted. Such radical change in retirement provision defied conventional wisdom among scholars of the political economy of pension reform, suggesting a need for fresh research. This unique study accepts the challenge, focusing on the divergent pension reform experiences of Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Learn More
