Can Developing Countries Maintain Financial Stability after the Global Crisis? The Role of External Financial Shocks

Download
2018-01-01
The recent global turmoil severely affected some developing economies. However, in general, these nations survived the crisis with less damage compared with advanced countries. The majority of developing countries did not experience a financial system collapse. What were the main factors behind their relatively better performance? We argue that the main reason was the relatively moderate financial account shocks, in terms of both magnitude and duration, experienced by developing economies during the global crisis. This was due to the fact that advanced countries could not fully serve their roles as safe havens during the recent global turmoil. Furthermore, developing countries enjoyed greater autonomy and legitimacy in implementing expansionary monetary and fiscal policies in an environment in which international cooperation partially met the need for an international lender of last resort. If the returns in advanced countries become more attractive, developing countries may face larger external financial shocks in future crises.

Managing financial instability in emerging markets: A Keynesian perspective
Akyüz, Yılmaz (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2008-6)
The Keynesian analysis of financial instability as developed by Hyman Minsky provides considerable insights into understanding the nature and dynamics of boom-bust cycles driven by international capital flows in emerging markets. Its main policy conclusion that financial control rather than macroeconomic policy holds the key to financial stability is equally valid. There is, however, need to develop a new approach to financial control and place greater emphasis on managing capital inflows than has hitherto ...
Dependency redivivus: the relevance of dependency theory in understanding contemporary capitalism and the crisis in Europe /
Savaş, Ayşe; Alpan, Başak Zeynep; Department of Political Science and Public Administration (2015)
Following the 2008 Economic Crisis, it has become apparent that some countries, while they had been applauded to be developing for decades, were far from becoming part of the developed core of the capitalist world economy.

In this thesis, it was argued that contemporary capitalism and the post-2008 situation in Europe can be explained with Dependency Theory and th...
