Can we use neoclassical growth model to single out the important transmission channels through which primitives a¤ected the Indian economy and caused the remarkable growth of the period 1982 to 2002? In this paper, we answer the question by applying the new technique of business cycle accounting to the Indian economy. Business cycle accounting procedure is(More)
This paper quantitatively investigates the role of technology shocks in propagating business cycles in a neoclassical growth model. I use the new technique of business cycle accounting (BCA) which enables me to maintain the basic framework of a standard growth model, but allows multiple propagation channels (referred to as wedges), technology ‡uctuations(More)
Sol/gel-derived silica gel was prepared at room temperature from tetraethyl orthosilicate precursor. The extracts of Terminalia chebula (Haritoki) were entrapped into the porous silica gel. Fourier transform infrared analysis revealed the proper adsorption of herbal values in the nanopores of the silica gel. Porosity was estimated by transmission electron(More)
In this paper we quantitatively investigate the boom and the bust of the Japanese economy during 1980–2000 using the business cycle accounting technique. This method helps us identify the distortion margins called ‘‘wedges’’ that played a significant role in accounting for the output fluctuations. Applying our model to Japan, we find that efficiency and(More)
The presence of labile iron fractions in intravenous iron supplements compromises their safety. Poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-assisted silica xerogel was evaluated as a potential drug carrier for iron sucrose with the purpose of limiting labile iron available for in vitro uptake by transferrin. The drug entrapped xerogels were synthesized by the sol-gel(More)

While three generations of models have studied the causes of financial crises, less is known about the mechanisms by which crises lead to output drops. One unresolved question is whether the mechanisms behind output drops are similar across episodes. To address this question, we apply the Business Cycle Accounting (BCA) methodology by Chari et al. (2007) to(More)
