Singapore : trade, investment and economic performance by Ramkishen S Rajan( )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Singapore's rapid evolution from a modest trading post under colonial rule into a prosperous, self-confident nation is one of the notable success stories of the second half of the 20th century. International trade and investment linkages have been the cornerstones of the city-state's economic success (more than 7 per cent per annum during the period 1970-2005). This book offers an overview of the Singapore economy with emphasis on its global trade and investment linkages and policies. It analyzes patterns and policies of Singapore's trade and foreign direct investment (FDI) and discusses issue
Exchange rate, monetary and financial issues and policies in Asia by Ramkishen S Rajan( )

17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A decade has passed since the Asian crisis of 1997-1998 which decimated many of the regional economies. While the crisis itself led to severe economic and political consequences, its primary cause was an inappropriate mix of policies, as regional economies attempted to simultaneously maintain fairly rigid exchange rates (soft US dollar pegs) and monetary policy autonomy in the presence of large-scale capital outflows. The chapters in this volume focus on selected exchange rate, monetary and financial issues and policies that are of contemporary relevance and importance to Asia, including choice of exchange rate regimes, causes and consequences of reserve accumulation, international capital flows, macroeconomic synchronization, and regional monetary and financial cooperation."--Jacket

Issues in governance, growth and globalization in Asia( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a compilation of important papers relating to the financial, governance and political-economy structures of the region, through a variety of methods and topics. Following the Asian crisis and subsequent global financial upheavals, policymakers and academics issued cries for institutional reform at the state and firm level; in many cases, reform was actually implemented rather than simply rhetorical. This volume begins by addressing issues relating to corporate governance within firms located in East Asia and as entities participating in corporate ownership elsewhere. Next, the key issues of globalization are directly addressed, including foreign direct investment into the region, integration among Southeast Asian countries and with the rest of Asia, and multinational enterprise investment strategy in Asia following initial entry decisions. Finally, the macroeconomic policies of state actors, and the effects of economic growth are examined"-
(Ir)relevance of currency-crisis theory to the devaluation and collapse of the Thai Baht by Ramkishen S Rajan( Book )

19 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the sequence of events leading up to the Thai crisis and collapse through the lens of the existing currency-crisis literature. It discusses, in addition to first- and second-generation currency-crisis models, the relevant third-generation models that include financial factors. In addition, it reviews a new set of models (spawned by the tendency of markets during the recent currency crises to overreact) that attempt to explain financial and currency collapse following an initial devaluation

Singapore and free trade agreements : economic relations with Japan and the United States by Ramkishen S Rajan( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of its trade policy, Singapore has recently embarked on what can broadly be termed ""new regionalism"". This is characterized by its new-found desire to enter into Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with the economic powerhouses (Japan and the United States in particular) as well as with a number of other countries beyond the Southeast Asian region. What is behind this new trade policy and the seemingly sudden enthusiasm for such preferential trading arrangements? What, specifically, could Singapore be hoping to gain? Equally important, what are the potential risks and costs that the city-st
Fiscal sustainability and competitiveness in Europe and Asia by Ramkishen S Rajan( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last two decades the fiscal positions of many advanced economies have deteriorated significantly, leading to ever-growing levels of public debt and mounting concerns about debt sustainability. Fiscal positions are set to weaken further on account of the worsening demographics which are likely to place upward pressure on public social expenditures. This book examines key issues and policy concerns relating to fiscal sustainability and competitiveness in European and Asian economies. In addition to estimating the extent of fiscal capacity or lack thereof for these economies, this book supplements the empirical analysis with country case studies"--
Economic management in a volatile environment : monetary and financial issues by Ramkishen S Rajan( )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1990s, several emerging market economies (EMEs) have, to varying degrees, embraced the process of 'financial globalisation', broadly defined as a set of policies that involve allowing for greater openness to cross-border capital flows as well as greater market access to foreign financial institutions. By 2010, the EMEs accounted for just under half of global GDP and are set to surpass the advanced economies in the next few years. However, EMEs are not without their concerns. They have been faced with a variety of policy challenges owing to their increasing integration with global financial markets. This book discusses some of the challenges relating to macroeconomic and financial management in a volatile and uncertain world, brought about by greater financial openness. The emphasis of the book is on exploring the implications of a key set of issues emanating from financial globalisation on emerging market economies in a rigorous but readable manner."--

Managing the macroeconomy : monetary and exchange rate issues in India by Ramkishen S Rajan( )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the liberalisation of the Indian economy in 1991 the country has experienced sustained current account deficits. These deficits were serviced by a massive influx of capital inflows, made possible by the gradual removal of or reduction in restrictions on foreign investments since 1991. However, things changed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. While a growth slowdown coupled with a deterioration of the current account balance was expected during the global financial crisis, the extent of the negative spillovers to India was striking nonetheless. Though offering many growth-enhancing opportunities, India's ever increasing integration with the world economy has given rise to a host of new challenges in managing the economy, particularly given the absence of any type of global policy coordination. This book sets out to provide an empirical assessment of some of India's crucial policy challenges pertaining to its monetary and external sector management"--
Crisis, capital flows and FDI in emerging Asia by Ramkishen S Rajan( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There has been much interest in understanding various dimensions of the growth and integration of emerging Asia with the rest of the world, particularly with regard to international capital flows and external financing. Nonetheless, serious academic work in this area has lagged somewhat compared to issues relating to international trade. This book fills this gap by dealing with topics relating to booms and busts in capital flows, financial stability the sources of external financing, and the important role played by FDI. It also discusses the monetary transmission channel, extent of financial integration, and the choice of exchange rate regimes in emerging Asia. The book consists of ten chapters, divided into three sections pertaining to international capital flows and financial crises; foreign direct investment (FDI) flows to and from the region including Mergers and Acquisitions (M & As), exchange rate regimes and choices and monetary policy transmission mechanism. While some chapters focus specifically on India, which is one of the new growth stars of Asia, many chapters deal with emerging Asia more generally (or specific sub-regions of East and South Asia). The book focuses on important economic policy issues of contemporary relevance-informed by data and rigorous empirical analysis."--Publisher's website

Exchange rate and foreign direct investment in emerging Asia : selected issues and policy options by Ramkishen S Rajan( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Introduction Part I: Laying the foundations of communication With the rapid growth of China and India and the resurgence of Southeast Asia post-1997-8, emerging Asia has once again become one of the most dynamic regions in the world. This dynamism has in turn been fuelled largely by a carefully calibrated embracement of economic openness to international trade, investments and capital flows. While much has been written about international trade, there has been somewhat less work on the issue of capital flows, macroeconomic management and foreign direct investment (FDI) to and from the region, a gap that this book attempts to fill"--EBL
