Regional Financial Cooperation by Jose Antonio Ocampo
Book DescriptionUsing the experience of postwar Western Europe as a benchmark, Jose Antonio Ocampo and his colleagues assess how regional financial institutions can help developing countries --often at a disadvantage within the global financial framework -- finance their investment needs, counteract the volatility of private capital flows, and make their voices heard. The 1997 Asian financial crisis generated extensive debate on the international financial architecture. Through this discussion, it became clear that services by financial institutions -- including adequate mechanisms for preventing and managing financial crises, and instruments for safeguarding global macroeconomic and financial stability --are undersupplied. Furthermore, private international capital markets provide finance to developing countries in a way that effectively reduces the ability of those nations to undertake countercyclical macroeconomic policies. International capital markets ration out many developing countries, particularly the poorest, from private global capital markets. While these deficiencies in the financial architecture are clear, the post-1997 debate has done little to evaluate the role that regional institutions could play in improving global financial arrangements. Regional Financial Cooperation aims to fill that important gap.
