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

9 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 350 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
International finance and developing countries in a year of crisis : 1997 discussions at the United Nations by United Nations( Book )

As the international financial crisis unfolded in Asia in 1997, the United Nations General Assembly hosted a series of lectures and discussions with prominent authorities on international finance and developing countries. At the end of its session, the Assembly agreed to start preparing for a high-level UN meeting on finance for development to take place by 2001. This book is the result of efforts by the United Nations University, which helped to arrange the expert presentations in New York, to make the relevant materials readily available to a larger audience. The book opens with a background chapter on financial flows, financial crises, and financial policy needs at the national and global levels by its editors, Barry Herman and Krishnan Sharma. The views of the International Monetary Fund on the lessons to be drawn from the Asian currency crisis are presented by its Managing Director, Michel Camdessus, while two former E×ecutive Directors of IMF, Ariel Buira and Arjun Sengupta, review policy issues in capital flows to developing countries
