Model, myth, or miracle reassessing the role of governments in the East Asian experience by Beatrice Weder( file )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 1,720 libraries worldwide
"Before the financial crisis of the late 1990s, the East Asian experience was hailed as a miracle and a model of successful development. A broad consensus had been reached on the role of governments in engineering this economic success, and rapid growth was generally attributed to sound policies that were underpinned by a solid institutional framework." "In the aftermath of the financial crisis, however, the "miracle" has been dismissed as a myth and a bad example that other countries should avoid. Critics allege that governments not only made serious policy mistakes, but also that the institutional framework was not so beneficial after all. The term "crony capitalism" is frequently used to summarize this notion." "This book investigates the role that institutional conditions played in the miracle, and whether they had a part in causing the crisis. The focus is on such factors as the close ties between the public and private sectors, the incentives structures within the public sector, and corruption."--BOOK JACKET
How businesses see government responses from private sector surveys in 69 countries by Aymo Brunetti( file )
28 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,055 libraries worldwide
"This paper presents the results of a survey of almost 4,000 entrepreneurs in 69 countries who were asked to judge what constituted a major obstacle for business operations. Among the numerous findings in the report, corruption, crime and theft, and tax regulations were found to be important obstacles to doing business. OECD countries, six transition countries, and twelve developing countries were represented in the survey."

Do corrupt governments receive less foreign aid? by Alberto Alesina( Book )
13 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 101 libraries worldwide
Critics of foreign aid programs argue that these funds often support corrupt governments and inefficient bureaucracies. Supporters argue that foreign aid can be used to reward good governments. This paper documents that there is no evidence that less corrupt governments receive more foreign aid. On the contrary, according to some measures of corruption, more corrupt governments receive more aid. Also, we could not find any evidence that an increase in foreign aid reduces corruption. In summary, the answer to the question posed in the title is 'no.'

How private creditors fared in emerging debt markets, 1970-2000 by Christoph Klingen( Book )
12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 46 libraries worldwide
We estimate ex post returns to emerging market debt by combining secondary-market prices with observed flows based on World Bank data. From 1970-2000, returns averaged 9 percent per annum, about the same as returns on a ten-year U.S. treasury bond. This reflects the combined effect of the 1980s debt crisis and much higher returns during 1989-2000. Annual returns since 1986 have been less volatile than emerging market equity returns but more volatile than returns on U.S. corporate or high-yield bonds. However, unlike returns on these bonds, emerging market debt returns do not seem significantly correlated with U.S. or world stock markets
Corruption and the rate of temptation : Do low wages in the civil service cause corruption? by Caroline van Rijckeghem( Book )

"The [Singapore] government believed that an efficient bureaucratic system is one in which the officers are well-paid so the temptation to resort to bribes would be reduced
Economic transformation and income distribution : some evidence from the Baltic countries by Peter Cornelius( Book )
9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 38 libraries worldwide
This transition from a centrally planned to a market economy implies a massive reallocation of resources. The realignment of relative prices that is needed to achieve this may bring about important distributional effects. This paper examines the extent to which income differentials have changed in countries where bold reforms have been introduced. Discussing the experience in the Baltic states, it finds that recorded income differentials in these countries appear to have widened markedly largely as a result of an increase in the dispersion of earnings. The redistributive effects of social assistance and tax policies seem to have been only marginal.--SCAD summary

Institutional reform in transition economies : how far have they come? by Beatrice Weder( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
This paper examines how institutional conditions in transition economies compare with those in the rest of the world using various indicators of governance. The focus is on the countries in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union but, when possible, transition countries, in Asia and Africa are also considered. The main findings are that transition economies, as a group, are no longer distinguishable from other economies, but at the same time, there are large differences in institutional performance within the group of transition economies. A formal cluster analysis is conducted in order to map transition economies into homogeneus groupings of countries. The results of this analysis highlight that transition economies are found at all clusters (from best to worst institutional performers) and also that a group of five countries, all of which are EU accession countries, appear to have 'graduated': when taking into account their level of income, thwir institutional conditions are no longer distinguishable from those in the most advanced industrialized countries
Will Basel II Affect International Capital Flows to Emerging Markets? by Beatrice Weder( Computer File )
5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
The mapping of risk weights to ratings, assumptions about required return on capital, assumptions about competition and diversion effects and the assumption that minimum capital requirements are binding constraints. The paper provides evidence on each of these assumptions and estimates their effect on interest margins and bank flows. Overall the results suggest that Basel II - taking into account the 'Potential Modifications' of November 2001 - will have only a moderate impact on international capital flows
Sources of contagion : finance or trade? by Caroline van Rijckeghem( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Spillovers through banking centers : a panel data analysis by Caroline van Rijckeghem( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
International banks are a major source of financing for emerging economies and also one of the most volatile ones. In Asia, for example, banks were the single largest group of creditors before the crisis and bank lending was the most variable component of capital flows during the crisis. In 1996, net flows from banks into 29 emerging markets accounted for USD120 billion, or about a third of total private inflows. In 1997 banks had reduced their share to about 9 percent of private inflows and by 1998 net inflows had turned into net outflows of about USD30 billion. 2 Understanding banks' responses to crisis appears to be an important link in explaining the international transmission of currency crisis. 3 In the wake of the recent currency crises, observers have pointed to a number of reasons why banking centers may add to financial contagion which can be classified into two types: the first has been referred to as a "common lender" effect and the second as a "wake up call" effect
