The Public Debt’s Dedollarization Effect in an Inflation Target Economy: A Theoretical Approach  [PDF]
Fernando Motta Correia, Luciano Ferreira Gabriel
Modern Economy (ME) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/me.2015.63033
Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to verify the necessary conditions for a possible existence of a steady state balance in an economy. This steady state balance contemplates in its long-term period, the dynamics of the inflation, the interest rate and the exchange rate. Besides, it is considered the public debt of the economy, which is indexed to these three variables in an environment where monetary politics incorporates the use of inflation target. In the stability analysis, it is possible to verify a rest position in the system framework. The conditions at this point present an economy with a mechanism of “dedollarization” of the public debt. By this first condition, the stability analysis calls attention with respect to the measure of the process of “dedollarization”. Depending on its intensity, the economy will show a positive wealth effect that could stimulate the expansion of the investments.

Video Object Relevance Metrics for Overall Segmentation Quality Evaluation
Correia Paulo,Pereira Fernando
EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing , 2006,
Abstract: Video object segmentation is a task that humans perform efficiently and effectively, but which is difficult for a computer to perform. Since video segmentation plays an important role for many emerging applications, as those enabled by the MPEG-4 and MPEG-7 standards, the ability to assess the segmentation quality in view of the application targets is a relevant task for which a standard, or even a consensual, solution is not available. This paper considers the evaluation of overall segmentation partitions quality, highlighting one of its major components: the contextual relevance of the segmented objects. Video object relevance metrics are presented taking into account the behaviour of the human visual system and the visual attention mechanisms. In particular, contextual relevance evaluation takes into account the context where an object is found, exploiting, for instance, the contrast to neighbours or the position in the image. Most of the relevance metrics proposed in this paper can also be used in contexts other than segmentation quality evaluation, such as object-based rate control algorithms, description creation, or image and video quality evaluation.
Política fiscal, sustentabilidade da dívida pública e liquidez dos títulos: uma análise para o Brasil
Correia, Fernando Motta;Meurer, Roberto;
Estudos Econ?micos (S?o Paulo) , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-41612008000300008
Abstract: this article evaluates such a fiscal effort and in particular the role played by the liquidity of the public debt bonds market to alleviate the effort. a model based on edwards (2003) is applied to forecast the primary fiscal surplus in alternative scenarios of demand for the public debt bonds, real gdp growth, inflation target, real interest rate and changes in exchange rate. we focus on the impact of the changes in demand for the public debt bonds on the fiscal effort necessary to stabilize the debt-gdp ratio. results show that such changes alter the response of the fiscal effort to gdp growth and changes in exchange rate. although the other variables considered can affect the fiscal effort their response to gdp growth is constant.
Stand-Alone Objective Segmentation Quality Evaluation
Correia Paulo Lobato,Pereira Fernando
EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing , 2002,
Abstract: The identification of objects in video sequences, that is, video segmentation, plays a major role in emerging interactive multimedia services, such as those enabled by the ISO MPEG- and MPEG- standards. In this context, assessing the adequacy of the identified objects to the application targets, that is, evaluating the segmentation quality, assumes a crucial importance. Video segmentation technology has received considerable attention in the literature, with algorithms being proposed to address various types of applications. However, the segmentation quality performance evaluation of those algorithms is often ad hoc, and a well-established solution is not available. In fact, the field of objective segmentation quality evaluation is still maturing; recently, some more efforts have been made, mainly following the emergence of the MPEG object-based coding and description standards. This paper discusses the problem of objective segmentation quality evaluation in its most difficult scenario: standalone evaluation, that is, when a reference segmentation is not available for comparative evaluation. In particular, objective metrics are proposed for the evaluation of standalone segmentation quality for both individual objects and overall segmentation partitions.
Fiscal Multipliers in Brazil: A Sensitivity Analysis on the Structural Identification Procedure  [PDF]
Gilberto da Silveira Barros, Fernando Motta Correia
Modern Economy (ME) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/me.2019.1010137
Abstract: The present study measured the effectiveness of Brazilian fiscal policy (the effects of fiscal shocks on output) through several specifications of SVAR models. The focus was on the impact of tax shocks on output, but spending shocks effects were also estimated. Two databases for fiscal variables were used: the official data from National Treasury and a set of alternative data by Gobetti and Orair [1]. The tax multiplier depends on the assumption about the sensitivity of government’s revenue to output: the greater the sensitivity, the greater is the tax multiplier. The preferred estimates of tax multipliers in this paper are higher than other estimates in the Brazilian literature. In most identifications both spending and tax (impact) multipliers are below unit.
Curva de Phillips e macrodinamica do capital ótimo
Correia, Fernando Motta;Pereima, Jo?o Basílio;
Revista de Economia Contemporanea , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-98482011000200001
Abstract: this paper presents new arguments for some recent stylized facts about the dynamics of inflation shown by mishkin (2007), which are: a) the persistence of inflation shocks are declining; b) the phillips' curve of this becoming more horizontal and; c) inflation has been less reactive to shocks on prices. it addressed the problem of determining the aggregate supply where the new version of the keynesian phillips' curve, that despite progress, not yet incorporating the determinants of the expansion potential of the product and that this inclusion is one of the explanations for stylized facts (fact b ) revealed recently by mishkin.
