Financial policies in emerging markets by Marko Skreb( )

17 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An overview of the financial vulnerability of emerging market economies and how the impact of exchange rate regimes affects this vulnerability.The 1994-1995 Mexican crisis was the first in a succession of financial crises to hit emerging markets in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, and Turkey. In almost all these cases, problems in the banking sector played a key role. Any analysis of recent developments in emerging market economies must consider two questions: What is the degree of financial vulnerability in emerging market economies, and what, if any, is the connection between the exchange rate regime and financial vulnerability?This book furthers understanding of the impact of financial policies on emerging market economies. Following an introduction by the editors, the book contains two main sections. The first presents theoretical and empirical evidence on the relation between financial policy and financial vulnerability. The second considers financial policy in central and eastern Europe in terms of the euro and the European Monetary Union. Although there is no clear-cut answer to which exchange rate regime works best, the book concludes that the financial vulnerability of emerging market economies suggests the advisability of greater caution in financial system liberalization and management
Inflation targeting in practice : strategic and operational issues and application to emerging market economies by Mario I Bléjer( )

17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A growing number of countries are anchoring their monetary policy through explicit inflation targeting. This policy has already scored remarkable successes in several countries, establishing central bank credibility, and reining in inflation where it had long been stubbornly high. But implementing inflation targets raises many difficult questions. What prerequisites must an economy and its institutions meet for the strategy to work? What choices should central banks make from the menu of possible variations on the basic approach? This book summarizes the discussions in a seminar at which economists and policymakers from ten countries reviewed their experiences with inflation targeting.--Publisher's description

Transition : the first decade by Mario I Bléjer( )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The former socialist countries' transition to market economies is one of the momentous transformations in modern history. The pace and degree of success have varied widely, and there is increasing divergence in performance, structure, and institutions among the transition economies. These differences are largely determined by country-specific conditions and political configurations. This book compares the experiences of the countries involved over the first ten years to determine what has worked and failed, as well as the nature of the challenges that lie ahead."--Jacket
How to measure the fiscal deficit : analytical and methodological issues by A Cheasty( )

22 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and German and held by 1,409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fiscal policy seeks to equilibrate the public sector's financing needs with the private sector's demand for investment and a sustainable balance of payments. Correct measurement of the public sector's net use of resources is therefore an important prerequisite for managing the macroeconomy. This volume, edited by Mario I. Blejer and Adrienne Cheasty, is organized around four issues: the adequacy of summary measures of the fiscal deficit, conventional and adjusted deficits, coverage (size) of the public sector, and the public sector's intertemporal budget constraint

28 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and Italian and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no magic formula for balancing fiscal policy and economic performance. As a scholar and policy advisor, Vito Tanzi has made a major contribution to identifying links between public finance and macro- and microeconomic consequences. His findings bear relevance in both developing and industrialized economies. The essays in this volume and its companion, "Fiscal Policy and Economic Reforms", highlight many of these interconnected issues, for instance the interaction between budgetary policy and economic aggregates, such as employment, inflation and growth, and the implication of economic linkages for designing fiscal policies. Further areas of interconnection include expenditure policies and alternative deficit financing strategies, and the trade-offs between macro- and microeconomic objectives. The list of contributors includes Max Corden, John Makin, Ronald McKinnon and Richard Musgrave

Economic liberalization and stabilization policies in Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay : applications of the monetary approach to the balance of payments by Nicolás Ardito Barletta( Book )

14 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the oil crisis of 1973-74, most Latin American countries began a search for new economic strategies to manage long-standing problems of acute external payments constraints, wildly fluctuating inflation rates, and difficulties in sustaining rapid economic growth. Reassessment of past interventionist and protectionist policies led several countries to introduce gradual liberalization of their foreign trade and financial markets. The countries of the "Southern Cone"--Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay - launched particularly bold programs to integrate their economies with the world economy. An important theoretical underpinning of their economic strategies was the market-oriented framework known as the "monetary approach to the balance of payments." In this volume twenty-eight leading international economists and regional specialists review the salient characteristics of the monetary approach, examine its variations in the three countries, and evaluate the success and failures in its applications. The emphasis throughout is on empirical evidence, on the dynamic aspects of the adjustment process, and on economic tradeoffs. The issues addressed are cross-referenced throughout the text
