International capital flows in calm and turbulent times the need for new international architecture ( )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Annotation International Capital Flows in Calm and Turbulent Times analyzes the financial crises of the late 1990s and draws attention to the type of lenders and investors that triggered and deepened the crises. It concentrates on institutional investors and banks and provides detailed analysis of the countries most affected by the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis as well as the Czech Republic and Brazil. It also suggests necessary international financial reforms to make crises less likely. The book is unique in its scrutiny of the type of lenders and investors that triggered and deepened the crises, focusing particularly on institutional investors and banks; allocation of their assets; the criteria used in this process; and the impact of the nature of the investor on the volatility of different types of capital flow. It addresses such questions as: What determines or triggers massive changes in perceptions and sentiment by different investors and leaders? To what extent does contagion spread not just among countries but between actors? What are the policy implications of this analysis? The book concludes by examining the asymmetries in the financial architecture discussions and implementation and by offering policy proposals

This text examines the growth and changes in capital flows globally and to emerging markets.

International finance and Latin America by Stephany Griffith-Jones( Book )
22 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This reissue, initially published in 1984, examines the evolution of international financial flows to Latin America since 1945, along with their implications for National Development . The book describes how, in each of the first three decades since the war, a new agency emerged (foreign investors in the 1950s, official aid agencies in the 1960s and multinational banks in the 1970s) which was willing to play a dynamic role in generating new financial flows to the region. The lack of such an agent in the 1980s, combined with a reluctance on the part of former investors to maintain their level o

From capital surges to drought seeking stability for emerging economies by Ricardo Ffrench-Davis( )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 437 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection analyses the new trends in capital flows to emerging markets since the Asian crisis, their determinants and policy implications. It explains why such flows have declined so dramatically in recent years, emphasising both structural and cyclical factors. Senior bankers, regulators and academics explain the behaviour of different players. The book breaks new ground by detailing how such behaviour has contributed to the decline of flows and their volatility. Suggestions are made for coping mechanisms which developing countries could adopt to deal with crisis situations; what measures should be taken at the national and international levels to make recipient countries less vulnerable to international financial instability; how such instability can be reduced; and what can be done in the source countries to encourage larger more stable capital flows to developing countries

Coping with capital surges : the return of finance to Latin America ( Book )
10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Private capital flows to Latin America have increased dramatically since 1989. This book examines the possible causes and consequences of this new and unforeseen wave of investment from the perspectives of both the borrower and the lender. The authors first analyze direct investment, securities investment (both bonds and shares), and bank lending by investors in the United States, Europe, and Japan, as well as the regulations affecting those investors. They differentiate among the scale, features, and motivations of those investors and lenders. The authors then turn to the features of capital flows, their macroeconomic impact, and policy responses in three recipient countries: Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. Those policy responses fundamentally relate to attempts to moderate the impact of capital inflows on exchange rates, to reduce the monetary impact of foreign exchange operations, and to moderate short-term capital inflows
Short-term capital flows and economic crises by Stephany Griffith-Jones( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contributors to this volume examine the macroeconomic and policy dilemmas confronting public authorities in the emerging economies as they deal with short-term capital movements, especially in the period before the outbreak of currency crises
International finance and development ( Book )
14 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"International Finance and Development offers a comprehensive survey of the major financing issues influencing economic development since the historic Monterrey Consensus of the International Conference on Financing for Development in 2002. As most recent international private capital flows have been unlikely to significantly enhance new productive investments in the developing countries, it is necessary to design appropriate mechanisms to ensure they contribute to development. However, recent trends in official development financing offer some grounds for optimism, although much more needs to be done. External debt problems of many developing countries, especially the least developed countries, seem likely to continue to constrain their prospects for development. The final part on systemic issues highlights new concerns and the modest progress in ensuring that the international monetary and financial system better serves economic growth and development throughout the world, especially in the developing countries."--BOOK JACKET

Third world debt : managing the consequences by Stephany Griffith-Jones( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In attempting to analyse the management of debt crisis in Latin America from 1982, several difficulties present themselves. In the first place, we are analysing an extremely complex process, whose final outcome is not yet known. In some ways, it is like analysing a play at a time when only two or perhaps three of the acts have actually been performed, and in circumstances when nobody--including the actors--know the full script. Secondly, analysis is made more difficult owing to the differences between rhetoric and reality. For example, after mid-1985, in the analysis made in industrial and developing countries alike, a consensus seemed to emerge that debt crisis management, as practised up to then, was both unsustainable and undesirable, given future likely trends in the world economy
