Taming Global Financial Flows: Challenges and Alternatives in the Era of Financial Globalization

By Singh Kavaljit

12.30 E

     

OVERVIEW

The global financial system, this book argues, is in serious trouble. There is an absence of effective regulation over the almost unimaginable sums involved in currency speculations, new financial products and shifts of "hot money" to emerging markets. The result, as the Asian crisis of 1997-98 and the ensuing global financial turmoil showed, is a degree of volatility which threatens the orderly running of national economies. The issue of financial globalization and the need to regulate global capital flows have, as a result, moved centre stage.

This book analyses the changes in the global financial system in recent years and calls for radical reforms in a system more susceptible to the whims of market sentiment than the economic policies of governments. The author provides a critical assessment of current proposals to deal with financial crises in future and outlines an integrated approach to the issues emerging from liberalization and the globalization of finance. Looking at past experiences of managing volatile capital flows, the author calls for new policy measures at national, regional and international levels. Written in a readily comprehensible and non-technical manner, it is intended to make the ongoing debates on financial regulation accessible to a non-specialist audience.

Even though the book was published some years ago, its analysis and policy recommendations are very relevant, particularly in the aftermath of global financial crisis which erupted in 2008.
