Macroeconomic policies and poverty reduction by Ashoka Mody ( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Macroeconomic Policies and Poverty Reduction goes beyond the traditional literature on poverty, dealing with this critical topic in a technically sophisticated, yet accessible, manner. Recognizing that economic growth is crucial for poverty reduction, this book nevertheless emphasizes the importance of particular country circumstances in mediating the relationship between growth and poverty reduction. The innovative essays use country case studies to analyze how the political economy of budgetary decisions, financial reforms, and trade liberalization, and periods of crises affect inequality and poverty."--BOOK JACKET

Sudden stops and IMF-supported programs by Barry J Eichengreen ( )
14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Could a high-access, quick-disbursing "insurance facility" in the IMF help to reduce the incidence of sharp interruptions in capital flows ("sudden stops")? We contribute to the debate on this question by analyzing the impact of conventional IMF-supported programs on the incidence of sudden stops. Correcting for the non-random assignment of programs, we find that sudden stops are fewer and generally less severe when an IMF arrangement exists and that this form of "insurance" works best for countries with strong fundamentals. In contrast there is no evidence that a Fund-supported program attenuates the output effects of capital account reversals if these nonetheless occur

The role of information in driving FDI flows : host-country transparency and source-country specialization by Ashoka Mody ( Book )
28 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We develop a simple information-based model of FDI flows in which the abundance of intangible' capital in the source countries, which generates expertise in cream-skimming investment projects in the host countries and enhances FDI flows. Corporate transparency in the host countries, on the other hand, diminishes the value of this expertise and thereby reduces the flow of FDI. Empirical evidence (from a sample of 12 source countries and 45 host countries over the 1980s and 1990s) which is analyzed in a gravity equation model provides some support to our theoretical hypotheses. The gains from FDI in the host country in our model are reflected in a more e.cient size of stock of domestic capital and its allocation across firms. These gains depend crucially (and inversely) on the degree of competition among FDI investors
The second transition Eastern Europe in perspective by Stefania Fabrizio ( )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The countries of Eastern Europe achieved two remarkable transitions in the short period of the last two decades: from plan to market and, then, in the run-up to and entry into the European Union, they rode a wave of global trade and financial market integration. Focusing on the second transition, this paper reaches three conclusions. First, by several metrics, East European and East Asian growth performances were about on par from the mid-1990s; both regions far surpassed Latin American growth. Second, the mechanisms of growth in East Europe and East Asia were, however, very different. East Europe relied on a distinctive-often discredited-model, embracing financial integration with structural change to compensate for appreciating real exchange rates. In contrast, East Asia contained further financial integration and maintained steady or depreciating real exchange rates. Third, the ongoing financial turbulence has, thus far, not had an obviously differential impact on emerging market regions: rather, the hot spots in each region reflect individual country vulnerabilities. If the East European growth model is distinctive, is it sustainable and replicable? The paper speculates on the possibilities

International dividend repatriations by Alexander Lehmann ( )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Income earned by the branches and subsidiaries of multinational firms can be either reinvested in the host country or repatriated as dividends to the firms' headquarters. Despite the rapid growth of foreign direct investment in the 1990s, there has been relatively limited analysis of the dividend behavior of multinationals. We find that investors in multinationals from the two largest foreign- investing countries-the United Kingdom and the United States-require a steady flow of dividends, consistent with a view that such regular dividend payments are a mechanism through which to discipline host-country managers. In contrast, German investors, who tend to invest in riskier countries, do not appear to demand persistent dividend payments. Changes in income also influence dividends. This payout ratio from income appears, for example, to be lower for less risky countries. Finally, the evidence suggests that dividend payments do not necessarily aggravate the balance of payments position during crises
Can budget institutions counteract political indiscipline? by Stefania Fabrizio ( )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The budget is an expression of political rather than economic priorities. We confirm this proposition for a group of new and potential members of the European Union, finding that politics dominates. The contemporary practice of democracy can increase budget deficits through not only ideological preferences but also more fragmented government coalitions and higher voter participation. Long-term structural forces, triggered by societal divisions and representative electoral rules, have more ambiguous implications but also appear to increase budget pressures, as others have also found. However, our most robust, and hopeful, finding is that budget institutions-mechanisms and rules of the budget process-that create checks and balances have significant value even when the politics is representative but undisciplined, and when long-term structural forces are unfavorable
Managing confidence in emerging market bank runs by Se-Jik Kim ( )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a rational-expectations framework, we model depositors' confidence as a function of the probability of future bank bailouts. We analyze the effect of alternative bank bailout policies on depositors' confidence in an emerging market setting, where liquidity shortages of banks are revealed sequentially and governments cannot credibly commit to bailing out all potentially distressed banks. Our findings suggest that allowing early bank failures and using available liquidity for credible commitments to later bailouts can better boost confidence than early bailouts. This conclusion arises because with a high chance of liquidity shortage in the future, depositors may lose confidence and hence withdraw deposits even from potentially sound banks. Such a policy of late bailouts is likely to receive political support when a full bailout needs to be financed by taxation. The logic of late bailout remains valid even when banks may hide their distress or when closures of early distressed banks create contagion
Paths to eurobonds by Stijn Claessens ( )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper discusses proposals for common euro area sovereign securities. Such instruments can potentially serve two functions: in the short-term, stabilize financialmarkets and banks and, in the medium-term, help improve the euro area economic governance framework through enhanced fiscal discipline and risk-sharing. Many questions remain onwhether financial instruments can ever accomplish such goals without bold institutional and political decisions, and,whether, in the absence of such decisions, they can create new distortions. The proposals discussed are also not necessarily competing substitutes; rather, they can be complements to be sequenced along alternative paths that possibly culminate in a fully-fledged Eurobond. The specific path chosen by policymakers should allow for learning and secure the necessary evolution of institutional infrastructures and political safeguards. -- Eurobonds ; eurozone ; fiscal risk-sharing ; European ; Monetary Union
Would collective action clauses raise borrowing costs? by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
29 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Collective action clauses raise borrowing costs for low-rated borrowers and lower them for high-rated borrowers. This result holds for all developing country bonds and also for the subset of sovereign bond issuers
Lending booms, reserves and the sustainability of short-term debt : inferences from the pricing of syndicated bank loans by Barry J Eichengreen ( Book )
14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
International banks provide more credit to smaller borrowers (about whom information is least complete) than bond markets do. High external short-term debt can coexist with rapid growth for extended periods. But overdependence on such debt is risky, because it is likely to unravel if perceptions of sustainability shift
