Global financial turmoil and reform a United Nations perspective by Barry Herman ( )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 1,931 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

Overcoming developing country debt crises by Barry Herman ( )
22 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examining historical sovereign debt crises in developing and transition economies, this text concludes that these occurrences have been economic and social catastrophes and are likely to happen again in the future due to the 'boom and bust' nature of economic cycles
Dealing fairly with developing country debt ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 263 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

Asuntos inconclusos en el diálogo internacional sobre la deuda by Barry Herman ( )
2 editions published in 2003 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Desde noviembre de 2001 hasta abril de 2003 el Fondo Monetario Internacional (FMI) debatió una propuesta radical para manejar la deuda externa de los países insolventes de economías en desarrollo y economías en transición, denominada mecanismo de reestructuración de la deuda soberana. Aunque la propuesta fue rechazada, se están introduciendo en los contratos de bonos soberanos nuevas cláusulas de acción colectiva con miras a encarar algunas de las dificultades existentes para reestructurar la deuda de bonos. Además, el FMI está desarrollando un enfoque pragmático y ecléctico para evaluar la sostenibilidad de la deuda, que sea útil tanto para los gobiernos como para los acreedores. Sin embargo, muchos de los problemas que plantea la reestructuración de la deuda soberana siguen en pie. Este artículo sugiere reformas específicas y algunas maneras de examinarlas."--Editor

Global trade and financial governance together by Barry Herman ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This paper addresses the unnecessary and damaging separation of global trade and financial governance. The International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the World Trade Organization are distinct, with the meetings of the Group of Seven industrial countries (G8 including Russia on political matters) providing the only opportunity to forge a more coherent policy involving trade and financial issues. This author discusses how to build a more broadly representative international structure to deal coherently with the concerns of many nations, not just the wealthier ones."--Editor

Half a century of proposals for "innovative" development financing by Barry Herman ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper recalls the history of proposed "innovative" mechanisms by which governments could strengthen financial cooperation for development. Such proposals sought more predictable and assured financial flows to facilitate recipient country programming, while also substantially adding to the volume of highly concessional international support for development. International discussions of these proposals mostly began in the 1960s and in many cases continue today, although implementation thus far has been modest. These discussions are contrasted with generally more recent proposals that proponents call "innovative" but that do not share the characteristics of the more radical thinking underlining the older proposals
