Financial Crises and What to Do About Them

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses some successful initiatives for the prevention and management of international financial crises. On the prevention front, the focus on enhancing transparency, strengthening prudential supervision, and rationalizing exchange rate regimes has made a difference. This is highlighted in the Argentinean crises, which had a weaker spill over than in the Mexican Tequila of 1995, the Asian crisis of 1997, and the Russian default of 1998. On the management front, the successful initiatives include the augmentation of the resources of the International Monetary Fund, and the extension of Paris Club compatibility to Eurobond shareholders.

Keywords:   financial crises prevention, financial crises management, financial transparency, prudential supervision, exchange rate regime, International Monetary Fund
