Renminbi internationalization : achievements, prospects and challenges by Barry J Eichengreen( )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meet the next global currency: the Chinese renminbi, or the "redback." Following the global financial crisis of 2008, China's major monetary policy objective is the internationalization of the renminbi, that is, to create an inter-national role for its currency akin to the international role currently played by the U.S. dollar. Renminbi internationalization is a hot topic, for good reason. It is, essentially, a window onto the Chinese government's aspirations and the larger process of economic and financial transformation. Making the renminbi a global currency requires rebalancing the Chinese economy, developing the country's financial markets and opening them to the rest of the world, and moving to a more flexible exchange rate. In other words, the internationalization of the renminbi is a monetary and financial issue with much broader supra-monetary and financial implications. This book offers a new perspective on the larger issues of economic, financial, and institutional change in what will eventually be the world's largest economy.--

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume develops new analytical frameworks and provides policy prescriptions to do just that, presenting medium- and long-term strategies for strengthening the regulatory frameworks that facilitate and broaden financial development while also helping to manage and mitigate the risks involved. It provides prescriptions for how the policy frameworks should be adapted to a world of more free (and more volatile) capital

Exchange rate regimes in East Asia by Masahiro Kawai( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a deepening debate in East Asia about the prospects for common exchange rate arrangements, even including the formation of a common currency in the longer term. This raises a complex set of issues and this volume provides a detailed yet comprehensive examination of key issues in the debate. It looks, for example, at the nature and extent of linkages in East Asia, in terms of trade and foreign investment, finance, labour, and consumption, investment and output. It examines how the exchange rate affects various aspects of economies. And it critically analyzes various proposals for currency regimes for the region, including floating exchange rates, basket pegs, and currency union
New frontiers in Asia-Latin America integration : trade facilitation, production networks, and FTAs( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic ties between Asia and Latin America are growing as a part of a global shift toward more South-South cooperation. Yet trade costs remain high, which may impede future interregional trade and integration. Furthermore, an emerging trans-Pacific trade architecture based on free trade agreements (FTAs) carries risks of a noodle bowl effect. This book examines new frontiers in Asia-Latin America integration through interregional comparative studies in three key areas: trade facilitation, logistics, and infrastructure; production networks, supply chains, and small and medium-sized enterprises; and FTAs. The chapters written by Asian, Latin American, and international experts provide new insights on regional integration, impediments, and policy issues

Reform of the international monetary system : an Asian perspective by Masahiro Kawai( )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The recent global financial crisis and its aftermath, including the sovereign debt and banking crisis in Europe, are key drivers of the current policy debate on the international monetary system. The crisis highlighted a number of weaknesses of the current international monetary system including over-reliance on the US dollar as the key currency for international transactions, the vulnerability of emerging economies to volatile international capital flows, and the lack of a reliable international financial safety net. Another important development is the potential development of the yuan as a global reserve currency. One area of debate surrounds the search for alternative international reserve currencies to supplement the role of the US dollar as the preeminence of the United States in the global economy is being gradually eroded. A second question relates to the management of monetary and currency policy in the presence of large and volatile capital flows. A third issue is the need for a global financial safety net and the role that regional financing arrangements can play in it. A fourth topic is the need for institutional support mechanisms to make a common, single currency system (such as the eurozone) viable, including fiscal policy coordination and banking union. A fifth important question is the value of soft currency cooperation at a regional level where economies are highly interdependent as in the case of Asia. This volume brings together studies that address aspects of reform of the international monetary system noted above. Many of the studies have a specific focus on Asia, while others address such diverse areas as the implications of the eurozone crisis, reforms of the international monetary system, and cooperation of regional and global safety nets. Given that the period of very low interest rates and sluggish growth in the major developed economies is likely to persist for some time, these conditions will tend to support continued large-scale capital outflows to Asian and other emerging economies. Therefore, the topics covered in the book are both urgent and timely.

Lamberte is team leader, COMPETE Project, The Asia Foundation, Makati City, Philippines, and was director of research at the Asian Development Bank Institute from 2007 to 2012. Peter J.

The political economy of Asian regionalism by Giovanni Capannelli( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contributes to the theoretical and empirical literature on Asian regionalism, with a focus on the innovations needed to reform the current institutional architecture in Asia. After reviewing the key issues and challenges related to the political economy of Asia's economic cooperation and integration, the book discusses various aspects of regionalism from political and economic perspectives. It looks at the rationale for regional collective action and reviews the trend of economic integration with a focus on the implications of the global financial crisis. In addition to reviewing the key issues related to the development of regional institutions for integration, the book analyzes issues such as trade and finance and deals with the implications of regionalism in terms of the introduction of domestic reforms in Asian countries before discussing the possible formation of a region-wide economic community. The eight chapters of the book are based on respective papers initially prepared for the Asian Development Bank Institute Conference 2010
Rebalancing for sustainable growth : Asia's postcrisis challenge( )

10 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Asian model of export-led growth served it well in the post-war period, but prolonged sluggish growth of the developed economies following the global financial crisis, together with growing inequality and rising environmental problems, point to the need for a new growth model. The purpose of this book is to describe the challenges facing Asian economies in the post-global financial crisis environment and to identify structural issues and policies that can help guide Asian policymakers to expand the growth potential of domestic and regional demand in coming years, and thereby create a basis for balanced, sustainable, and inclusive long-term growth. These issues and policies span a variety of dimensions, including macroeconomic policy (monetary, fiscal, and foreign currency management), real sector issues (trade and industrial structure), infrastructure development, labor market and social policy, financial sector reform and regulation, and regional cooperation and architecture.

Monetary and financial cooperation in East Asia : the state of affairs after the global and European crises( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The global financial crisis and the Eurozone crisis have led to a profound rethink in East Asia about the international monetary system and regional monetary and financial integration. After the Asian financial crisis of 1997-8, deeper regional cooperation was seen as the way to avoid reliance on the IMF and to create self-help mechanisms. Steps were taken, but they were limited because of disagreements reflecting differences in financial capacities and regional rivalries. Still, integration into the global financial system and Europe's regional process were seen as objectives to be adapted to East Asia, as detailed in an overview chapter. The crises have shaken this strategy but also revealed the pre-existing deep disagreements. This book presents contributions by scholars from different countries. Each one was invited to describe the vision of their policymakers. The traditional rivalry between the PRC and Japan, the region's largest economies, reveals PRC confidence in its rising power and Japanese growing doubts about its ability to weigh on the debate. For opposite reasons, both display a declining interest regional cooperation. The Republic of Korea and the ASEAN countries do not wish to choose between the regional powers but remain attached to regional cooperation and integration. They look for pragmatic solutions that recognize the value-chain characteristic of trade. Additional contributions by US and European scholars provide evaluations of the global and Eurozone crises and of their relevance for East Asian integration
Managing capital flows : the search for a framework by Masahiro Kawai( Book )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managing Capital Flows provides analyses that can help policymakers develop a framework for managing capital flows that is consistent with prudent macroeconomic and financial sector stability. While capital inflows can provide emerging market economies with invaluable benefits in pursuing economic development and growth, they can also pose serious policy challenges for macroeconomic management and financial sector supervision. The expert contributors cover a wide range of issues related to managing capital flows and analyze the experience of emerging Asian economies in dealing with surges in capital inflows. They also discuss possible policy measures to manage capital flows while remaining consistent with the goals of macroeconomic and financial sector stability. Building on this analysis, the book presents options for workable national policies and regional policy cooperation, particularly in exchange rate management. -- Back cover
