    International Monetary Fund 1993; US$ 7.50

  • Recent Experiences with Surges in Capital Inflowsby Robert Kahn

    International Monetary Fund 1993; US$ 7.50

    This paper explores the experience of six countries (Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Mexico, Spain and Thailand) with capital inflows.

  • Exchange Rates and Economic Fundamentals: A Framework for Analysisby Steven Symansky

  • Evolution and Performance of Exchange Rate Regimesby Robin Brooks

    International Monetary Fund 2004; US$ 12.50

    The issue of the appropriate exchange rate regime for individual countries has been perennially lively, and the role played by international capital flows and domestic financial systems in determining the performance of these regimes has gained prominence in the policy debate. Using recent advances in the classification of exchange rate regimes, the... more...

  • Exchange Rate Assessment: Extension of the Macroeconomic Balance Approachby Peter Isard

    International Monetary Fund 1998; US$ 9.00

    The IMF's internal analysis of exchange rate issues has been guided by, and limited by, the conceptual and empirical frameworks that have emerged from the collective research of the economics profession. The research has provided several general approaches that are useful for assessing whether countries' exchange rates seem broadly appropriate. One... more...

  • Improving the International Monetary System: Constraints and Possibilitiesby Morris Goldstein

    International Monetary Fund 1995; US$ 7.50

    This study addresses major policy issues associated with the future of the international monetary system.

  • Exit Strategies: Policy Options for Countries Seeking Exchange Rate Flexibilityby Barry Eichengreen

    International Monetary Fund 1998; US$ 9.00

    In a world of increasing capital mobility and broadening and more diversified trade, many (but not all) developing and transition economies are likely to find it desirable to move from relatively fixed exchange rate regimes to regimes of greater exchange rate flexibility. This paper suggests why, and considers strategies that countries may consider... more...

  • A New Look at Exchange Rate Volatility and Trade Flowsby Peter Clark

    International Monetary Fund 2004; US$ 12.50

    The effect of exchange rate volatility on trade flows was examined by a 1984 IMF study on G-7 countries. Over the past two decades, many developments in the world economy, such as the currency crises in the 1990s and increasing cross-border capital flows, may have exacerbated exchange rate volatility, while others, such as a deepening of the market... more...

  • Monetary Policy in Dollarized Economiesby Adam Bennett

    International Monetary Fund 1999; US$ 9.00

    Dollarization - the holding by residents of a substantial portion of their assets in foreign-currency-denominated assets- is a common feature of developing and transition economies, and therefore typical of many countries with IMF - supported adjustment programs. This paper analyzes policy issues that arise-and various monetary strategies that may... more...
