    Towards Secure Information Sharing Models for Community Cyber Security

    This paper motivates the need for new models for Secure Information Sharing (SIS) in the specific domain of community cyber security. The authors believe that similar models will be applicable in numerous other domains. The term community in this context refers to a county or larger city size unit with...

    Nonlinearity And Stationarity Of Inflation Rates: Evidence From The Euro-zone Countries

    Few studies have empirically examined the possibility of nonlinearity in inflation and tested nonlinear stationarity of the inflation rates. The present paper thus intends to fill the gap. The paper examines the hypothesis that, for a group of countries having exercised target-zone type stabilization policies with their inflation eventually converging...

    Liquidity Risk And Financial Competition: Implications On Asset Prices And Monetary Policy

    Recent events in financial markets have led to a substantial decline in the number of financial institutions, which may affect the extent of financial competition. What are the implications of such outcome on the degree of risk sharing, asset markets, and monetary policy? In order to answer these questions, the...

    Optimal Path Selection for Ethernet Over SONET Under Inaccurate Link-State Information

    Ethernet over SONET (EoS) is a popular approach for interconnecting geographically distant Ethernet segments using a SONET transport infrastructure. It typically uses Virtual Concatenation (VC) for dynamic bandwidth management. The aggregate SONET bandwidth that supports a given EoS system is obtained by "Concatenating" a number of Virtual Channels (VCs), which...

    Minimizing the Differential Delay for Virtually Concatenated Ethernet Over SONET Systems

    This paper considers the problem of minimizing the differential delay in a virtually concatenated Ethernet over SONET (EoS) system by suitable path selection. The Link Capacity Adjustment Scheme (LCAS) enables network service providers to dynamically add STS-n channels to or drop them from a Virtually Concatenated Group (VCG). A new...

    The Role Of Financial Sector Competition For Monetary Policy

    In this paper, the authors examine the impact of competition in the banking industry on financial market activity. In particular, they explore this issue in a setting where banks simultaneously insure individuals against liquidity risk and offer loans to promote intertemporal consumption smoothing. In addition, spatial separation and private information...

    Liquidity Risk, Economic Development, And The Effects Of Monetary Policy

    Empirical evidence indicates that monetary policy is not super-neutral in many countries. In particular, in high inflation economies, inflation is negatively related to economic activity. By comparison, inflation may be positively correlated with output in low inflation countries. The authors present a neoclassical growth model with money in which the...

    Liquidity Risk And Banks? Asset Composition: Implications For Monetary Policy

    Monetary growth models in which the government is a net debtor demonstrate that inflation adversely affects capital formation through the crowding out effect. Interestingly, the results are at odds with empirical evidence. In particular, recent studies point out to an asymmetric relationship between inflation and the real economy across countries....

    The Cost Of Capital, Asset Prices And The Affects Of Monetary Policy

    The primary objective of this paper is to study the interaction between monetary policy, asset prices, and the sources of technological progress. The authors develop a two sector model in which financial institutions promote risk sharing and fiat money alleviates trade frictions. Since the price of capital goods depends on...

    The Stock Market, Monetary Policy, And Economic Development

    In this paper, the authors examine the impact of financial market development on capital accumulation and inflation. In particular, they explore this issue in a setting in which banks provide risk pooling services. Furthermore, money overcomes incomplete information to facilitate transactions between individuals. In contrast to previous work, they incorporate...
