The following information is now available on the Philadelphia Fed’s website:

Working Paper 09-32
“How Important Is the Currency Denomination of Exports in Open-Economy Models?” by Michael Dotsey and Margarida Duarte

http://www.philadelphiafed.org/research-and-data/publications/working-papers/2009/

The authors show that standard alternative assumptions about the currency in which firms price export goods are virtually inconsequential for the properties of aggregate variables, other than the terms of trade, in a quantitative open-economy model.

Working Paper 09-33
“Worker Flows and Job Flows: A Quantitative Investigation” by Shigeru Fujita and Makoto Nakajima

http://www.philadelphiafed.org/research-and-data/publications/working-papers/2009/

The authors investigate the sources of the differences in the cyclicality of worker flows and job flows by studying quantitative properties of a multiple-worker version of the search/matching model that features endogenous job separation and intra-firm wage bargaining.

We welcome your comments, questions, and suggestions.

What Drives Diesel Fuel Prices?

Crude oil prices, seasonal shifts and regulatory changes are major factors driving long-term diesel fuel prices, according to the latest issue of Economic Letter. It also notes that diesel prices departed from historic norms in recent years and rose above gasoline prices on spot markets. The authors estimate that spot diesel fuel prices should rise 25 cents a gallon over the next six months and 41 cents a gallon over the next 18 months.

JOSEPH ROTH NOVEL ABOUT HISTORY'S WAITING ROOMS: "HOTEL SAVOY" 1924

Hotel Savoy

Joseph Roth (Author)

The Austrian-Jewish writer Joseph Roth (1894-1939)

Hotel Savoy (1924)

It is 1919. World War I has ended. Soldiers and survivors of prisons are straggling out of Russia toward the West. One of them, our narrator, reaches a squalid industrial town (Lodz) between here and there, and finds himself stranded, coaxing nothing out of his rich uncle except an elegant hand-me-down suit.

He takes a room at the Hotel Savoy, an immense indefinite structure that seems to expand and contract like an accordion, though ‘we’ never scale higher than the seventh floor. There are luxurious quarters on the lower floors, or at least so it seems, but our narrator lodges on the fifth floor, just below the exotic dancer Stasia, who has managed at least not to become one of the naked bar girls who fawn on the rich industrialists in the bar of the Hotel Savoy.

The elevator operator, Ignatz, has odd powers of intimidation — may in fact be Death — and keeps everyone’s luggage locked somewhere until the room charges are settled, which of course can never happen. There’s a strike underway among the factory workers, and everyone is waiting for “Bloomfield”, the native of the town who has become filthy rich in America, to reinvent their businesses. Unquestionably, the “revolution” is near …

The Austrian-Jewish writer Joseph Roth (1894-1939) amazes us with his ability to compress an entire genre of writing into each of his highly original novellas. “Hotel Savoy” is a blend of Baroque allegory with post-Freudian surrealism, as if Sebastian Brant’s “Ship of Fools” had been updated by Vladimir Nabokov, with stylistic accents from Franz Kafka and Robert Walser. We are also reminded of Eugene O’Neill’s play, “The Iceman Cometh.”

One is reminded of the great paintings by Pieter Brueghel, of soldiers and beggars carousing while the plague fires burn. Obviously the ‘hotel’ is the whole of European civilization in the midst of an historical debacle. Terrifying as Roth’s vision is, this novella is fiercely funny, a foxtrot of despair, a purgative bonfire of the vanities.

Joseph Roth (1894-1939) ranks among the most important of early 20th-century European raconteurs. In his second novel, Hotel Savoy (1924), he skillfully depicts a string of events in the life of his character Gabriel Dan. Roth was intent on portraying in prose the psychology of the uprooted, the hopeless, and the hopeful.

Gabriel is adrift in a world torn asunder by a recent war, so for several months, he lives in the most prominent hotel in an Eastern town. He hopes that his wealthy uncle will offer him financial assistance, so he can travel westward.

Product Description

Still bearing scars from the gulag, a freed POW traverses Russia to arrive at the Polish town of Lodz. In its massive Hotel Savoy, he meets a surreal cast of characters, each eagerly awaiting the return from America of a rich man named Bloomfield.

Like Europe itself later in 1932, the hotel is the stage upon which characters follow fate to its tragic destiny.
