Trends in private investment in developing countries : statistics for 1970-1998 by Lawrence Bouton( )

19 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 990 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation International Finance Corporation Discussion Paper no. 41. While theoretical growth models developed in the economics literature make no distinction between private and public components of investment, there is an emerging appreciation that private investment is more efficient and productive than public investment. Results from the recent empirical literature, updated here with the recent data on private investment, suggest that private investment has a stronger association with long run economic growth than public investment. The role of private investment in economic growth is examined in the first part of this discussion paper. The second part shows trends in private and public fixed investment in fifty developing countries

Trends in private investment in developing countries : statistics for 1970-2000 and the impact on private investment of corruption and the quality of public investment by Stephen Everhart( )

20 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report is part of the continued investigation on the public-private investment relationship, and its focus for this year is on the quality of public investment, its interaction with corruption, and the resulting impact on private investment. The first chapter provides statistics on trends in private, and public fixed investment in sixty three developing countries, with a substantially expanded sample coverage of the Eastern Europe and Central Asia Region, as well as some smaller economies of the Latin America and Caribbean Region. On average, the ratio of private investment to GDP, declined in 1999 compared to 1998, while public investment increased in simple average terms, and remained at 1998 levels in weighted average terms. The 1999 decline brings investment ratios back to their 1995 level, and, preliminary (incomplete) estimates for 2000, suggest that private investment may be poised for a return to growth. The second chapter examines whether higher levels of public investment are associated with higher, or lower levels of private investment, the impact of corruption on this relationship, and the long-run implications for growth, and sustainable development. The paper is consistent with the hypothesis that corruption lowers the quality of public investment, and that this reduced quality is associated with lower private investment

Trends in private investment in developing countries : Statistics for 1970-97 and Perceived Obstacles to Doing Business by Guy Pierre Pfeffermann( )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: This is the tenth annual edition of "Trends in Private Investment in Developing Countries." To mark this event, this report includes figures for each of the countries for which data are available as well as the first country-specific results of a worldwide survey on obstacles to doing business perceived by executives in 74 countries (including several industrial countries for comparison). The first part of this report documents trends in private and public fixed investment. The second part presents country-specific results of a 1996/97 worldwide survey of business executives. The discussion focus on obstacles to doing business and their relationship to levels of private investment. A few factors emerge as being of particular importance to private investment decisions: the real exchange rate, the rule of law, predictability of judiciary systems, and the extent to which financing is available to enterprises
International reserve trends in the South Caucasus and Central Asia region by Holger Floerkemeier( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the South Caucasus and Central Asia countries (CCA-6) have received significant foreign exchange inflows. While a healthy reserve buffer is desirable to self-insure against external crises, holding international reserves also involves costs. We analyze the adequacy of CCA-6 reserves using widely recognized rules of thumb, and simulate optimal reserve levels applying the Jeanne (2007) model. Both the adequacy measures and the model-based simulations indicate that, with the exception of Tajikistan, CCA-6 reserves had increased to broadly comfortable levels by 2006. More recently, reserve adequacy has been tested in Kazakhstan, which has been affected by the 2007 global liquidity crunch
An application of the "fan-chart approach" to debt sustainability in post-HIPC low-income countries by Maximilien Kaffo Melou( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We analyse the debt dynamics in countries that benefited from the HIPC/MDRI debt relief initiatives with a view to applying a probabilistic approach to estimating future debt paths for those countries. We extend the probabilistic approach to public debt sustainability analysis (DSA) proposed by Celasun et al. (2006). This required addressing the twin challenges of a the time period that is too short to conduct country-by-country estimations and the presence, suggested by econometric evidence, of a break?point around 2006 in the dynamics of debt accumulation. To overcome the data limitations
Arrears to the IMF - A Ghost of the Past? by Anne Oeking( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper, we consider incidences of arrears to the IMF, focusing on protracted arrears cases and attempt to identify determinants of their occurrence. We use narrative and formal methods. In addition, we analyze determinants of the duration of arrears. We find that previous arrears, reserves coverage, and institutional quality are among the main determinants of arrears. In addition, we identify a role for political developments, including civil unrest, which make arrears more likely to arise and to last longer. We conclude that improved macroeconomic conditions and turnaround of political fortunes would help to clear the currently remaining protracted arrears cases
International reserves : too much of a Zipf's thing by Mariusz A Sumlinski( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concentrated distribution of international reserves is puzzling. I show that the growth rates of international reserves bear only a very weak relationship to their initial stocks (scaled by GDP or in absolute terms), and that, by implication, the cross-sectional distribution of reserves conforms to Zipf's law. The law states that the size of reserves is inversely related to their ranking. Evidence in favor of the law is strong and time robust. I compare the cross section distribution of international reserves embedded in the WEO projections to that implied by Zipf's law and find that international reserves are much less concentrated in the WEO projections than implied by Zipf's law

This discussion paper examines in its first part, the role of private investment in economic growth. While theoretical growth models developed in the economics literature, make no distinction between private, and public components of investment, there is an emerging appreciation that private investment is more efficient, and productive tan public investment. Results from the recent empirical literature, updated here with the recent data on private investment, suggest that private investment has a stronger association with long run economic growth than public investment. The second part shows trends in private, and public fixed investment in fifty developing countries. On average, the ratio of private investment to GDP continued its upward trend, reaching record levels in 1998, the most recent year for which comparable data exist. That year, average private investment reached 14.3 percent of GDP, but public investment, fell to only 7.0 percent of GDP, its lowest level since 1974
