Mark A. Wynne, Janet Koech, One-Size-Fits-All Monetary Policy: Europe and the U.S., Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, September 2012

"The ongoing euro-area crisis is seen by many as vindication of skeptics who said that a monetary union encompassing a disparate group of countries is doomed to fail because the countries do not constitute what economists call an optimum currency area. Thus, they argued, a one-size-fits-all monetary policy that goes with participation in an alliance such as the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) creates strains that ultimately prove insurmountable.

In the eyes of the skeptics, each country is better off setting its own interest rates at levels appropriate for local economic conditions. Such a contention raises the question: How far apart were the interest rates the European Central Bank (ECB) set for the euro area as a whole from those that would have been more appropriate for individual member states given their local economic conditions?"

Daniel L. Thornton, Greenspan’s Conundrum and the Fed’s Ability to Affect Long-Term Yields, St. Louis Fed, Sept. 2012

Abstract:

"In February 2005 Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan noticed that the 10-year Treasury yields failed to increase despite a 150-basis-point increase in the federal funds rate as a “conundrum.” This paper shows that the connection between the 10-year yield and the federal funds rate was severed in the late 1980s, well in advance of Greenspan’s observation. The paper hypothesize that the change occurred because the Federal Open Market Committee switched from using the federal funds rate as an operating instrument to using it to implement monetary policy and presents evidence from a variety of sources supporting the hypothesis. The analysis has implications for central banks’ interest rate policies."

Hayek's reflections on central planning and non-distorted pricing systems are - of course - highly actual in a world where political central planning has contributed to a huge mess (a.o. thinking about Europe) and where more central planning is applied in the belief the problems can be solved this way.

Samuel Bowles, Alan Kirman, Rajiv Sethi, Markets, Information, and Laissez Faire: Hayek Reconsidered, Columbia University, August 16, 2012

"In his celebrated 1945 essay "The Use of Knowledge in Society," Friedrich Hayek confronted both the advocates of central planning and the economic theory on which their arguments were based. The theory, he observed, was de cient because it neglected the fact that information essential tothe ecient functioning of the economic system was decentralized, and needed to be aggregated insome fashion. In comparing markets to planning, therefore, it was important to determine \whether we are more likely to succeed in putting at the disposal of a single central authority all the knowledge which ought to be used but which is initially dispersed among many different individuals, or in conveying to the individuals such additional information as they need in order to enable them to fit their plans in with those of others."
To Hayek, the answer was clear:"

Hausman, Naomi, University Innovation, Local Economic Growth, and Entrepreneurship (June 1, 2012). US Census Bureau Center for Economic Studies Paper No. CES-WP- 12-10. Available at SSRN: http://ssrn.com/abstract=2097842

Abstract:

"Universities, often situated at the center of innovative clusters, are believed to be important drivers of local economic growth. This paper identifies the extent to which U.S. universities stimulate nearby economic activity using the interaction of a national shock to the spread of innovation from universities - the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 - with pre-determined variation both within a university in academic strengths and across universities in federal research funding. Using longitudinal establishment-level data from the Census, I find that longrun employment and payroll per worker around universities rise particularly rapidly after Bayh-Dole in industries more closely related to local university innovative strengths. The impact of university innovation increases with geographic proximity to the university. Counties surrounding universities that received more pre-Bayh-Dole federal funding - particularly from the Department of Defense and the National Institutes of Health - experienced faster employment growth after the law.
