Monetary independence and rollover crises by Javier Bianchi( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper shows that the inability to use monetary policy for macroeconomic stabilization leaves a government more vulnerable to a rollover crisis. We study a sovereign default model with self-fulfilling rollover crises, foreign currency debt, and nominal rigidities. When the government lacks monetary autonomy, lenders anticipate that the government will face a severe recession in the event of a liquidity crisis, and are therefore more prone to run on government bonds. By contrast, a government with monetary autonomy can stabilize the economy and can easily remain immune to a rollover crisis. In a quantitative application, we find that the lack of monetary autonomy played a central role in making the Eurozone vulnerable to a rollover crisis. A lender of last resort can help ease the costs from giving up monetary independence

Aventurera( Visual )

2 editions published in 1949 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The genre of moody musical melodramas known as rumberas could be kitsch but they were far from comedies. The films, like their heroines on screen, were socially condemned by the middle class, becoming forbidden pleasures for their cult following. Aventurera is considered the epitome of the genre and features a dynamic performance by the Cuban rumba dancer Ninón Sevilla, the queen of the cabareteras, cast against Andrea Palma. Sevilla was famous for her angry outbursts, which are well used in a film that presents a devastating indictment of bourgeois hypocrisy. The film follows the fall and rise of a talented girl from a "good" family, Elena (Sevilla), who becomes disenchanted when her upstanding mama reveals a down-and-dirty side. Becoming a cabaret dancer, Elena is spiraled into a net of vice and oppression, but slowly she becomes the spider and others, the flies. It seems to be her destiny to unveil the secret, vice-laden lives of bourgeoisie like her mother"--Pacific Film Archive program note
