Financial sector structure and financial crisis burden : a model based on the Russian default of 1998 by George Mavrotas( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member 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

Examining private investment heterogeneity : evidence from a dynamic panel by Kul B Luintel( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member 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
