International Capital Markets : Systems in Transition
This title is comprised of 19 commissioned articles which are mainly focused on the timely global issues of volatility in equity and foreign exchange markets and the regulatory scene in developed and emerging markets. The papers provide a cutting-edge overview of general issues regarding world capital markets, experience in developing countries, and capital market regulation, which many economists believe could turn into the number one topic in international business and economics very soon. The articles were financed with grants from the Ford Foundation to New School University and the University of Cambridge. These subjects are important to professionals in the banking/financial services sectors, regulators and policy makers at the government level, think tanks, and graduate level college courses in international financial markets and international economics.
