Rethinking Pension Reform

release date: Aug 02, 2004
Rethinking Pension Reform
This book is unique as it presents an academic and a practical aspect on managing pension funds to clarify the global debate on social security. The authors establish the basic choices in designating any system to help policy makers develop the system that achieves their many objectives. The success of reforms depends on financial innovation to mitigate key risks and some innovations are discussed, which also demonstrates how pension reform choices affect the achievement of retirement objectives. Finally, the authors examine some proposed hybrid options to show how the beneficial features of these hybrids can be captured through good design in a single fund.

The Debate Over Stabilization Policy

release date: Sep 18, 1986
The Debate Over Stabilization Policy
This 1986 book examines some of the main issues that have characterized macroeconomics: the debate between 'monetarists' and 'Keynesians'; the response to demand shocks and supply shocks, by which the monetary authorities control aggregrate nominal income and the use and relevance of the money supply as a target; and the consumption function and the determinants of wealth. It shows that Keynesian stabilization policies succeeded in reducing instability due to demand shocks dramatically, but that no aggregrate demand policy can stabilize both price and employment simultaneously after a supply shock. However, by assigning an overall 'social cost' to (excess) unemployment and (initially) unexpected inflation, an optimism path can be derived. In looking at the consumption function and determinants of wealth the empirical evidence is shown to be most consistent with the life-cycle hypothesis. A concluding section is devoted to the impact on private and national society of the 'social security revolution'.

Mortgage and Mortgage-backed Securities Markets

release date: Jan 01, 1992
Mortgage and Mortgage-backed Securities Markets
The U.S. mortgage market, estimated at roughly $3.7 trillion, easily exceeds the values of the U.S. government bond market. Daily trading alone runs in the billions of dollars, and the value of mortgage-backed securities now outstanding is more than $1 trillion. The vastness of this market has inspired a variety of financial innovations, both in the design of mortgages and in the securities that derive from them. These innovations--adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs) and mortgage-backed securities (MBSs), which include passthroughs, collateralized mortgage obligations (CMOs), stripped MBSs, and so forth--have been a great success, created a large and growing industry, and demonstrated how financial engineering can redirect cash flows from a pool of assets to more closely satisfy the asset/liability needs of different classes of institutional investors. MBSs have proven to be a useful model for other forms of asset securitizations such as securities based on auto loans and credit card receivables. Mortgage-backed securities provide many useful benefits to both issuers and investors, but they are among the most complex of securities and appear in many interesting puzzling forms. Success in issuing, trading, and investing in MBSs requires a thorough understanding of their pricing and management of prepayment risks, and Professors Fabozzi and Modigliani have made an important contribution to that understanding in this important new book, . In this state-of-the-art treatment, Frank Fabozzi and Franco Modigliani offer the first book to systematically address the complex subject of mortgages and mortgage-backed securities without being unduly mathematical. Beginning with the basic mortgage, theauthors explain the development of the secondary mortgage market. They show how the market has been transformed from total dependence on local deposits to a market with a broad base of investors in the United States, Europe, and Japan. The business of mortgage origination, servicing, insurance, mortgage pooling, and the historical origins of securitization are fully described. The authors take the reader through the procedure for pricing traditional bonds to the complex process of valuing a variety of mortgage-backed securities. Because the borrower/homeowner has an option to prepay part or all of the mortgage at any time, yields and prices on these instruments can vary dramatically. The conventions used in this market for estimating prepayments are discussed and critically evaluated, as are the factors that affect prepayments. Fabozzi and Modigliani provide a review of the fundamental principles used in valuing fixed-income securities, then extend them to the various frames of analysis used in determining values for MBSs. This book fills an important need for mortgage bankers, institutional investors, and other financial professionals who need to understand the mortgage market and its complex instruments.
