Users' guide to the SDR a manual of transactions and operations in SDRs by Fonds monétaire international ( )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the publication of the first edition of this guide in 1982 (an reprinted in 1985 with minor revisions), a number of changes have taken place that have considerably facilitated transactions and operations in the Special Rights Department and have led to a large increase in their number and volume. Salient among these changes are the emergence of the SDR buying and selling (two-way) arrangements, certain members stand ready to buy or sell SDRs in voluntary transactions for one or more freely usable currencies at any time, provided that their SDR holdings remain within certain limits. These arrangements now accommodate the vast majority of acquisitions and sales of SDRs, and they have obviated any need for recourse to the designation mechanism since September 1987

5 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Persistence in the variability of daily exchange rates by Georg C Tsibouris ( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rational speculation in foreign exchange trading is often assumed to dampen exchange rate fluctuations by bringing the market back to fundamentals. Nevertheless, information congestion provides incentives for traders to follow positive feedback strategies which result in persistent and volatile exchange rate behavior by magnifying the impact of exogenous shocks. Empirical evidence is presented which is consistent with such autocatalytic effects
Financial innovations involving the Greek drachma by Michael G Papaioannou ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The tremendous growth of financial transactions in the United States in the early 1980s led to a wave of innovations in financial products and processes which quickly spread outside its borders.2 Before that time, only a few traditional hedging products-such as forward contracts-were used and very few futures and options exchanges operated outside the United States. The subsequent extraordinary growth in European financial transactions, including the issuance and trading of Euromarket securities, was accompanied by the deregulation of financial markets in the United Kingdom and several other European countries

The structure and operation of the world gold market by Gary O'Callaghan ( Book )
2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper describes the structure of the world gold market, its sources of supply and demand, and how it functions. The market has three principal functions in three major locations: the New York futures market speculates on spot prices, which are largely determined in London, whereas physical gold is in large part shipped through Zurich. The market is dominated by large suppliers and gold holders, including monetary authorities. Some unique characteristics of the gold market ensure confidentiality, and as a result, there are gaps in existing knowledge and data. The paper identifies and attempts to fill these gaps
Sovereign credit ratings methodology : an evaluation by A Bhatia ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper describes and evaluates the sovereign credit ratings methodologies of Standard & Poor's, Moody's Investors Service, and Fitch Ratings. A simple definition of ratings failure-based on ratings stability-is proposed and tested, pointing to falling failure rates, consistent upside bias, and strong interagency correlation. Possible causes of ratings failure are separated into informational, analytical, revenue bias, and other incentive problems, each of which is discussed. The paper seeks to highlight methodological developments after the Asian crisis, particularly with regard to the estimation of contingent liabilities and the assessment of international reserves adequacy
A political-economic model of the choice of exchange-rate regime by Yan Sun ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Facing electoral uncertainty, a government chooses its exchange regime in a trade-off among three incentives: (i) tying the hands of its opponent should it lose the election; (ii) facilitating its own future policy implementation should it win the election; and (iii) increasing its chance of reelection
Do fixed exchange rates induce more fiscal discipline? by Yan Sun ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conventional wisdom has held that a fixed exchange rate regime induces more fiscal discipline, but Tornell and Velasco (1995, 1998) argue the opposite. Using a dynamic model with fragmented fiscal policymaking, this paper evaluates the two arguments in a single framework and shows that (1) future punishment against fiscal laxity exists under both fixed and flexible regimes; (2) fiscal authorities have a greater incentive to spend more today under fixed rates than under flexible rates; (3) in the presence of both factors above, fixed rates will induce more fiscal discipline only if the future punishment is sufficiently stronger than under flexible rates; and (4) neither fixed nor flexible rates could resolve the structural distortions caused by fragmented policymaking, and fiscal centralization needs to be undertaken to strengthen fiscal discipline
Economic transition, entrepreneurial capacity, and intergenerational distribution by Svend E. Hougaard Jensen ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A defining feature of transition economies is the expansion of the private sector. Motivated by the observation that new enterprises in transition economies seem to have a strong preference for recruiting young people, this paper studies intergenerational redistribution following from market reforms that stimulate private sector activity and firm creation. We implement a theoretical model and find that in some cases more than half of the current working age population may be made worse off by an increase in entrepreneurial capacity. This may help explain why market reforms have been voted down despite their long-run benefits
Anticipating arrears to the IMF : early warning systems by Chikako Oka ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper attempts to predict the incidence of arrears to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) by modifying and applying two of the major early warning systems for currency crises: the "signals" approach proposed by Kaminsky, Lizondo, and Reinhart (1997) and the probit-based alternative developed by Berg and Pattillo (1998). The results, based on both in-sample and out-of-sample tests, appear encouraging. While the unique nature of IMF arrears poses some challenges, the models could be useful tools for identifying countries at high risk of incurring arrears to the IMF
The "hard" SDR : an exploratory analysis by Subhash Madhav Thakur ( Book )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The impact of cyclical factors on the U.S. balance of payments by Magda Kandil ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Real GDP growth and real effective exchange rate (REER) appreciation appear cointegrated with the current and financial accounts of the U.S. balance of payments. On this basis, we estimate reduced form equations showing that expected changes and shocks to real GDP, the REER, energy prices, and growth in emerging market economies and other industrial countries explain much of the short-term variation in the U.S. current account balance, with the balance worsening as real GDP, energy prices, and the REER increase. In addition, foreign direct investment rises with real growth, while stock market prices affect the composition of capital inflows
