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)
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)
Are regulatory intervention measures successful in alleviating a …nancial crisis? What works? Using the Japanese banking crisis as our laboratory, we utilize a novel, hand-gathered, bank-speci…c database to provide an empirical answer to the above questions. Our results indicate that while substantial risk-based capital infusions (similar to the 2009 stress(More)
We build a two-country model with di¤erential productivity and …-nancial frictions to quantitatively account for the recent increase in the U.S. current account de…cit. An in ‡uential literature says that as U.S. productivity surged, capital was attracted to the U.S. to take advantage of the high returns to investment. We show, however, that when we include(More)
Can we use neoclassical growth model to single out the important transmission channels through which external factors or 'primitives' affected the Indian economy and caused the remarkable growth of the period 1982–2002? In this paper, we answer the question by applying the new technique of business cycle accounting to the Indian economy. Our results show us(More)
An in ‡uential explanation for the recent rise in the U.S. current account de…cit is the boom in U.S. productivity. As U.S. productivity surged in the mid-1990s, capital was attracted to the U.S. to take advantage of the higher real returns. Using a two country general equilibrium model, this paper quantitatively shows that the gap in productivity growth(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)
