"This book addresses a number of gaps in knowledge on aid allocation and effectiveness, and provides many new and important analytical insights into aid. Among the topics covered are the interface between aid allocation and perceptions of aid effectiveness, the inter-recipient concentration of aid from non-govenment organizations, the year-on-year volatility of aid, impacts of aid on public sector fistcal aggregates, and evaluation of the country-level impacts of aid.

Development finance in the global economy : the road ahead ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 174 libraries worldwide
For much of the last 30 years the global economy has not worked well for most poor countries or for most poor people. But there are now grounds for optimism. Presently, global liquidity is ample, pushing investors into parts of the world they previously avoided, and private investment is rising. A new and more positive chapter has begun in Africa's debt story and aid flows have started to rise again after years of stagnation. Yet progress remains tentative. Global liquidity and private investment could contract and the recent growth in aid is not enough. Very poor countries still receive too little private capital. This book explores how international finance can serve the needs of poor countries and poor people. Containing contributions from a wide range of economists and political scientists, including those who have been at the centre of the international policy debate, this volume is an essential companion for all scholars and policymakers in this important area.

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 147 libraries worldwide
This significant and timely volume offers crucial insights into the constantly evolving debate within the international development community regarding the mobilization of domestic resources and the crucial role that financial development can and should play in this regard.

The contributions, from leading experts in the area of finance and development, strike a fine balance between theory, evidence and policy.

Examining private investment heterogeneity : evidence from a dynamic panel by Kul B Luintel ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"We investigate domestic private investment behaviour in a panel of 24 low-income and middle-income countries spanning a period of 1981-2000. The paper rigorously addresses (i) the cross-country heterogeneity in private investment behaviour, and (ii) endogeneity. Indicators of financial sector development and other standard macroeconomic determinants of private investment appear significant in explaining private investment behaviour in out sample; however, the estimated parameters and adjustment dynamics exhibit important cross-country differences. The empirical findings of the paper have important implications namely that first, cross-country heterogeneity needs to be addressed while modelling the private investment behaviour, and second, at the policy level, the country-specific approach appears potentially more effective than the one-size-fits-all approach for boosting private investment" -- Abstract.

Financial sector structure and financial crisis burden : a model based on the Russian default of 1998 by George Mavrotas ( Book )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 14 libraries worldwide
"We consider an overlapping generations model with two production factors and two types of agents in the presence of financial intermediation and its application to the Russian default of August 1998. The paper focuses on the analysis of the consequences of a sudden negative repayments shock on financial intermediation capacity and consequently on the economy as a whole. The model exhibits a 'chain reaction" property, when a single macroeconomic shock can lead to the exhaustion of credit resources and to the subsequent collapse of the whole banking system. To maintain the capability of the system to recover, regulatory intervention is needed even in the presence of the state guarantees on agents' deposits in the banks (workout incentives). We compare the results for an intermediated economy with those derived under the assumption of a market economy, and draw some broad conclusions on the consequences of the crises, which are contingent on the financial sector structure. -- Abstract.
