    International Monetary Fund 2011; US$ 9.00

    In today''s financial system, complex financial institutions are connected through an opaque network of financial exposures.

  • United Statesby International Monetary Fund

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    This paper presents a technical note on Crisis Management Arrangements for the United States.

  • FDI Flows to Low-Income Countriesby International Monetary Fund

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    What accounts for variations in FDI flows from advanced to developing countries? How have FDI inflows explained cross-country growth experiences?

Two key results emerge: (i) lower borrowing costs and positive real-side external factors were... more...

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    In the past decade, most of the EU New Member States experienced a severe credit-boom bust cycle. This paper argues that the credit boom-bust cycle was to a large extent the result of factors external to the region (“bad luck”). Rapid credit growth followed from a high liquidity in global markets and the particular attractiveness of “new Europe” for... more...

  • Commodity Prices and Inflation in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asiaby International Monetary Fund

    International Monetary Fund 2010; US$ 9.00

    Inflation followed a strikingly uniform pattern in all countries of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia during the period 1996-2009, falling until about 2000 and then rising. International fuel prices do not help explain this pattern. This conclusion is robust even when different cross sections of countries are tested or when different... more...
