Global financial turmoil and reform : a United Nations perspective by Barry Herman( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Asia's financial and economic crisis deepened and spread around the world, United Nations economists on five continents shared notes to understand the upheaval and suggest reforms at national and international levels." "This process led the Secretary-General to present a set of recommendations to the General Assembly on methods to strengthen the capacity of developing and transitional economies to cope with international financial volatility and to reduce risks posed by the current international financial system. It also resulted in a joint statement by UN economic and social affairs officials to the ministerial committees that oversee the Bretton Woods institutions." "This volume presents the results of these exercises, including revised and updated papers and summaries of July 1998 discussions at which economists and scholars discussed the crisis in terms of the behaviour of direct investors and financial markets."--Jacket
Dealing fairly with developing country debt by Editor:Christian Barry( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The recent economic collapse in Argentina and financial crisis in Turkey, and the persistent unsustainable debt burdens of many developing countries highlight the practically urgent problem of excessive indebtedness. High debt levels can limit a sovereign government's capacity to provide social services necessary for the well-being of its citizens, and divert resources and energy from the pursuit of long-term development strategies. In this book, philosophers, theologians, lawyers and economists examine questions related to how to deal fairly with the over-indebted governments of developing countries. These questions include: How do you balance obligations to repay a debt with potentially worsening poverty in the debtor country? Should creditors be held accountable - and if so, how - for loans to governments that are not even minimally representative of their people's interests? Are there reforms to the practices governing sovereign borrowing and lending to sovereigns that would increase fairness in how the world treats developing countries with debt difficulties?"--Publisher's description
