4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
The sections in this volume include presentations on specific topics, followed by commentaries and discussion, and proceed from theoretical issues to actual country experiences. The papers are the best evidence of the variety of topics discussed in the seminar and the diversity of views expressed there. In the final session, however there was general agreement with two principles spelled out, namely (1) that it is impossible to maintain an exchange rate policy independent of other key elements of economic policy, in particular monetary policy, but also fiscal and trade policies; and (2) that "one size does not fit all," because exchange rate policy mus take into account not only the nature of the country's economy, but also any existing constraint on domestic economic policy.
Frameworks for monetary stability : policy issues and country experiences : papers presented at the sixth seminar on central banking, Washington, D.C., March 1-10, 1994 ( Book )
4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 198 libraries worldwide
There is now a wide consensus that monetary stability should be the primary concern of a central bank. In the last few years, this consensus has been manifested in a wide-ranging revision of the statutes and laws regulating the operations of central banks in many industrial and developing countries. These laws now incorporate the principal that price stability is the primary objective of the central bank and that all other objectives should be pursued only insofar as they are not in conflict with the achievement of this primary goal. In many economies in transition, central bank laws have also followed the same standard. Therefore, many central banks have been considering ways in which they can better carry out their strengthened mandate to pursue monetary stability.

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 135 libraries worldwide
The economic problems afflicting Africa in general are many and varied. Among these, the twin problems of mounting external debt and large-scale capital flight have been at the forefront since at least the 1980s. The papers in this volume analyze these problems for a selected group of sub-Saharan African countries. All the studies were sponsored by the African Economic Research Consortium (AERC) in the period 1989-97. The various analyses of the different countries are brought together here to highlight common themes, and to compare and contrast the experiences of different countries. The issues raised in these papers still remain relevant to the countries today, and indeed apply to many other African countries as well.
Financial programming and policy : the case of Sri Lanka ( Book )
4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
The volume contains a series of workshops designed to introduce readers to the process of formulating a hypothetical macroeconomic and structural adjustment program, which is a central element in the financial programmiing courses offered by the IMF Institute. In addition to elaborating key concepts for the four major sectoral accounts, the workshops are designed to help readers develop step-by-step a reference scenario for Sri Lanka based on the assumption that policies will remain unchanged during the selected program year of 1991. Based on the diagnosis of financial and structural imbalances that emerge from the reference scenario, readers can then elaborate a program scenario for 1991 and the medium term, focusing principally on the macroeconomic aspects of a financial program, but also identifying the main elements of structural reform.

Probabilistic sustainability of public debt a vector autoregression approach for Brazil, Mexico, and Turkey by Evan Tanner ( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 96 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the sustainability of fiscal policy under uncertainty in three emerging market countries, Brazil, Mexico, and Turkey. For each country, we estimate a vector autoregression (VAR) that includes fiscal and macroeconomic variables. Retrospectively, a historical decomposition shows by how much debt accumulation reflects unsustainable policy, adverse shocks, or both. Prospectively, Monte Carlo techniques reveal the primary surplus that is required to keep the debt/GDP ratio from rising in all but the worst 50 percent, 25 percent, and 10 percent of circumstances. Such a value-at-risk approach presents a clearer menu of policy options than currently used frameworks.
Financial supervisory independence and accountability exploring the determinants by Donato Masciandaro ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 92 libraries worldwide
We analyze recent trends in, and determinants of, financial supervisory governance. We first calculate levels of supervisory independence and accountability in 55 countries. The econometric analysis of the determinants indicates that the quality of public sector governance plays a decisive role in establishing accountability arrangements, more than independence arrangements. It also shows that decisions regarding levels of independence and accountability are not well-connected. The results also show that the likelihood of establishing adequate governance arrangements are higher when the supervisor is located outside the central bank.
How does the introduction of health insurance change the equity of health care provision in Bulgaria by Nora Markova ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 90 libraries worldwide
The study examines the effect of health care reform in Bulgaria in 1999 on the equity of health care financing. It explores the distribution of different types of health care financing by income. Furthermore, it separates the financial and social reasons for these differences, dividing them into economic and social inequalities. It suggests a method of distinguishing between financially based and "exclusion based" reasons for having progressive/regressive health care financing. Moreover, it looks at the social factors that shape health expenditure patterns and identifies those social characteristics that lead to exclusion from the health care system.
