Some scholars argue that the free movement of capital across borders enhances welfare; others claim it represents a clear peril, especially for emerging nations. In Capital Controls and Capital Flows in Emerging Economies, an esteemed group of contributors examines both the advantages and the pitfalls of restricting capital mobility in these emerging nations. In the aftermath of the East Asian currency crises of 1997, the authors consider mechanisms that eight countries have used to control capital inflows and evaluate their effectiveness in altering the maturity of the resulting external debt.

The economics of crime lessons for and from Latin America ( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 461 libraries worldwide
"Taking an empirical economics perspective, this volume assesses the causal impacts of disadvantage on youth outcomes and how policy interventions can alleviate those impacts. Each chapter develops a framework to describe the relationship between youth disadvantages and later life outcomes, addressing such factors as educational opportunity, health, neighborhood crime rates, and employment. This book documents the serious short-and long-term consequences of childhood disadvantage and provides nuanced evidence of the impact of public policy designed to help needy children." "This volume offers comparative analysis from twelve countries and examines the issue of age in the labor force. Contributors analyze the relationship between incentives to retire and the proportion of older persons in the workforce, the effects that reforming social security would have on the employment rates of older workers, and how extending labor force participation will affect program costs. Dispelling the myth that employingolder workers takes jobs away from the young, this timely volume challenges a raft of existing assumptions about the relationship between old and young people in the workforce." "In less than three decades, China has grown from playing a negligible role in world trade to being one of the world's largest exporters, a substantial importer of raw materials, intermediate outputs, and other goods, and both a recipient and source of foreign investment. This volume undertakes an empirical investigation of the effects of China's new status, providing detailed analyses of the microstructure of trade, the macroeconomic implications, sector-level issues, and foreign direct investment. Careful examination of micro data in light of established economic theories clarifies a number of misconceptions, overturns some conventional wisdom, and documents data patterns that enhance our understanding of issues related to China's trade.".
