A Non-Linear Currency Substitution Model of Hysteresis in Debt and Competitiveness

Gazioğlu, Şaziye
McCausland, W. David
The model has four assets: domestic and foreign money and bonds. It is a two country macro model, with debt defined in terms of the net asset holdings of the domestic country. Asset flows between the domestic and foreign country are driven by the interaction between the current and capital account. Both the assets and goods markets are non-linear: the non-linearities in international debt create the possibility of multiple debt and competitiveness equilibria. The paper shows that domestic and foreign monetary policy, as well as trade shocks, can not only lead to irreversibility of international debt, but also of international competitiveness. This allows us to shed some light on the causes leading to 'debt traps' faced by newly industrialised and less developed countries, the so called 'Dutch disease' in countries with new resource discoveries, and the persistent effects on trade and competitiveness with capital controls and project linked lending.


A linear programming model for bank balance sheet management
Guven, S; Persentili, E (1997-08-01)
Bank balance-sheet management which involves the determination of the size and composition of a bank's assets and liabilities over a multiperiod planning horizon is one of the most prominent issues in bank strategic planning. Not only management policy choices, but legal restrictions and minimum safety requirements, dictated by the economic and political environment operated in, mean a balance has to be struck between the conflicting objectives of profitability, liquidity and risk. Bank balance-sheet manage...
Analysis of portfolio diversification between REIT assets
Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe (2014-03-15)
REIT assets have gained recognizable attention in capital markets in recent decades and their development in time speaks of the impact of interaction among portfolios of REITs assets. This paper aims to analyze cointegration structure between and within different types of REITs and investigate the influence of cointegrated assets on portfolio indicators. A portfolio-optimization analysis is done based on the bivariate relationship among asset prices for the years 1995-2008. Uni and bidirectional causalities...
Investigating the effects of illiquidity on credit risks via new liquidity augmented stochastic volatility jump diffusion model
Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Hekimoglu, Alper (2021-12-01)
Liquidity is extremely important not only within the context of financial markets but also in every scale of economic transactions. In this study, within the realm of financial markets, we configure liquidity as an independent stochastic process moderating the fluidity of all transactions and hence dynamically changing asset values. This study's asset value process ignoring liquidity is modelled with a stochastic volatility jump-diffusion (SVJ) model and that model is augmented with the incorporation of a l...

Banks are considered as the marginal and sophisticated investors of financial markets. This is evident in the Haddad and Sraer (2020) study that examines the US government bond excess returns. This study extends the Haddad/Sraer analysis to the Turkish government bond market. According to the forecasting results, exposure ratio provides explanatory power over bond excess returns, especially for longer maturities. On the other hand, output gap and industrial growth present strong in-sample forecasting power ...

The Greeks in finance are the partial derivatives of a financial quantity with respect to any of the model parameters. These derivatives could serve to measure the stability of the financial quantity under study (e.g. delta is the derivative of an option price with respect to the initial price) or to hedging a certain payoff (Higa and Montero, 2004). The Greeks are useful tools in finance which help to understand how the option reacts to a change in the parameters. The information gained from calculated Gre...
