Barriers to international capital flows: when, why, how big, and for whom?

Until recently, the trend in world capital markets has been toward increasing ?globalization.? Recent events in Latin America and Asia have forced a rethinking of the desirability of unrestricted world capital flows. In this paper we ask whether simple restrictions on capital mobility can succeed in reducing the volatility of funds flows, whether such restrictions are consistent with the long-term development of the countries that might impose them, whether such restrictions are beneficial for poorer countries while harming wealthier countries, and whether barriers to capital movements should ...

Economic policy trends in post-World War II Latin America

Recent economic disturbances in Latin America-particularly the currency crises in Mexico in 1994-95 and Brazil in 1998-99-have prompted significant research and debate over financial sector reforms and appropriate monetary and fiscal policy for the region. The recent discussion over dollarization is but one of many such debates. ; As the author of this article demonstrates, the current rethinking of economic policy in Latin America is only the latest chapter of a much longer story.

The United States in debt

After 1982 the international investment position of the United States dramatically shifted from one of sizable net creditor to much more sizable net debtor.

International coordination of fiscal policy in limiting economies

We examine the limiting behavior of cooperative and noncooperative fiscal policies as countries? market power goes to zero. We show that these policies converge if countries raise revenues through lump-sum taxation. However, if there are unremovable domestic distortions, such as distorting taxes, there can be gains to coordination even when a single country?s policy cannot affect world prices. These results differ from the received wisdom in the optimal tariff literature. The key distinction is that, unlike in the tariff literature, the spending decisions of governments are explicitly modeled.
