From capital surges to drought seeking stability for emerging economies by Ricardo Ffrench-Davis( file )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
This collection analyses the new trends in capital flows to emerging markets since the Asian crisis, their determinants and policy implications. It explains why such flows have declined so dramatically in recent years, emphasising both structural and cyclical factors. Senior bankers, regulators and academics explain the behaviour of different players. The book breaks new ground by detailing how such behaviour has contributed to the decline of flows and their volatility. Suggestions are made for coping mechanisms which developing countries could adopt to deal with crisis situations; what measures should be taken at the national and international levels to make recipient countries less vulnerable to international financial instability; how such instability can be reduced; and what can be done in the source countries to encourage larger more stable capital flows to developing countries

Coping with capital surges : the return of finance to Latin America ( Book )
10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 356 libraries worldwide
Private capital flows to Latin America have increased dramatically since 1989. This book examines the possible causes and consequences of this new and unforeseen wave of investment from the perspectives of both the borrower and the lender. The authors first analyze direct investment, securities investment (both bonds and shares), and bank lending by investors in the United States, Europe, and Japan, as well as the regulations affecting those investors. They differentiate among the scale, features, and motivations of those investors and lenders. The authors then turn to the features of capital flows, their macroeconomic impact, and policy responses in three recipient countries: Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. Those policy responses fundamentally relate to attempts to moderate the impact of capital inflows on exchange rates, to reduce the monetary impact of foreign exchange operations, and to moderate short-term capital inflows
Reforming Latin America's economies : after market fundamentalism by Ricardo Ffrench-Davis( Book )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 316 libraries worldwide
"Provides a comprehensive analysis of why reforms in Latin America have failed in achieving growth and equity. The book focuses on three strategic areas of reforms of the Washington Consensus: Macroeconomics, Trade and Finance. Identifies main analytical inconsistencies in the market fundamentalism that has dominated present reforms. In a firmly based policy-oriented approach, Ffrench-Davis offers alternative policies to reform the reforms in the three areas of macroeconomics, trade and finance, seeking for sustained equitable growth."--BOOK JACKET
Capital flows and investment performance : lessons from Latin Amarica by Ricardo French-Davis( Book )
15 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 260 libraries worldwide
Countries receiving large-scale capital inflows are at risk if these flows do not find their way into productive and long-term investment, as the Asian crisis of the late 1990s has proven. This book, the result of a joint project between the OECD Development Centre and the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), examines the policies of a group of major Latin American countries faced with large inflows. The authors conclude that domestic policies impact on the effects of capital inflows. They demonstrate that certain countries, particularly Chile and Colombia, have been able to use policy to direct capital inflows into investment and thereby reduce the risk of instability in the financial sector. Such policies lead to effective management of foreign capital inflows and the creation of a stable, growth-oriented environment conducive to more sound external investment. The lessons of this book are as applicable in other regions of the world as they are in Latin America

Seeking growth under financial volatility by Ricardo Ffrench-Davis( Book )
12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
"This volume deals with macroeconomic issues and their relationship to growth in emerging economies. Lack of economic growth has been a feature of Latin American economies since the 1980s. In this book the analysis is complemented by two studies focused in East Asia and South Africa. All country cases examined have exhibited low inflation but high instability of economic activity in the 1990s and early 2000s. These cases provide relevant theoretical implications for a broader understanding of real macroeconomic policies in economies vulnerable to the globalization of financial volatility."--BOOK JACKET
Economic growth with equity : challenges for Latin America by Ricardo Ffrench-Davis( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 199 libraries worldwide
Concern about the striking degree of inequality in Latin America is now at a peak. This situation is exacerbated by the disappointing growth performance of its economies in the past two and a half decades. During that period, which includes the years of profound reforms under the 'Washington consensus', GDP per capita in Latin America has diverged from that of developed nations. In economies with average GDP per capita of about one-quarter of that of richer economies and twice as wide a gap between the high-income and low-income sectors of their populations, tackling the challenge of achieving equitable growth emerges as a prerequisite for reducing the development gap between the region and richer countries. This is the focus of the analysis of the growth with equity challenge presented in this book, which includes ten papers written by an outstanding group of Latin American and international researchers and policy-makers brought together by ECLAC. Ricardo Ffrench-Davis is an Adviser to ECLAC and Professor of Economics at the University of Chile. In 2005, he was awarded the Chilean National Prize for the Humanities and Social Sciences. He is the author of Economic Reforms in Chile: From Dictatorship to Democracy and Reforming Latin America's Economies after Market Fundamentalism. He holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Chicago. Još Luis Machinea is Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), headquartered in Santiago, Chile. He is a former Minister of Economic Affairs of Argentina and has also served as the President of that nation's Central Bank. He holds a PhD in Economics from the University of Minnesota
