  12. Managing Currency Risk

    Managing Currency Risk

    Takatoshi Ito, Satoshi Koibuchi, Kiyotaka Sato, Junko Shimizu
    This book demonstrates how exporters’ decisions regarding choice of invoice currency can be influenced by many factors including firm size, product competitiveness, intra/inter-firm trades, and the geography of export destination. The aim is to enhance our understanding of exporters’ behavior in terms of managing currency risk. It contains detailed research and insightful data focusing on Japanese exporters and shows how they face an important trade-off in choosing the invoice currency. If exports are invoiced in yen, then exchange rate fluctuations will pass through to retail prices ultimately affecting sales volumes. However, if they choose to invoice in the importer’s currency, then sales volumes are largely unchanged. Learn More

  13. Human Capital and Development

    Human Capital and Development

    Ju-Ho Lee, Hyeok Jeong, Song Chang Hong
    During recent decades, Korea has been one of only a handful of countries that have made the successful transformation to become a developed nation by simultaneously achieving persistent economic growth combined with a democratic political system. Experts and political leaders worldwide have attributed this achievement to investments in people or, in other words, the power of education. Whilst numerous books have highlighted the role of industrial policies, technological growth, and international trade in Korea’s development process, this is one of the first to focus on the role of human capital. It shows how the accumulation of human capital aided transformation and helps explain the policies, strategies and challenges that Korea faces now and in the future. Learn More

  18. China and the Global Economy

    China and the Global Economy

    Edited by Shahid Yusuf
    China’s global economic footprint is large and growing. In recent years, China has contributed a third or more to the growth of the global economy, following its meteoric rise starting in the 1980s and gathering momentum in the 1990s. China has convincingly demonstrated the efficacy of investment and export-led growth as a model of development, and has achieved economic stardom using a mix of industrial, trade and exchange rate policies within the framework of a gradually reforming socialist market economy. The chapters in this volume, written by prominent China scholars and economists, as well as an original introduction by a world-leading expert, explore China’s economy. This collection will be an invaluable resource for China watchers and to researchers, students and policymakers interested in learning from East Asia’s development, understanding how China transformed its economy and wondering how China might come to grips with the challenges ahead.

  20. Central and Local Government Relations in Asia

    Central and Local Government Relations in Asia

    Edited by Naoyuki Yoshino, Peter J. Morgan
    Sustainable and inclusive growth in emerging Asian economies requires high levels of public investment in areas such as infrastructure, education, health, and social services. The increasing complexity and regional diversity of these investment needs, together with the trend of democratization, has led to fiscal decentralization being implemented in many Asian economies. This book takes stock of some major issues regarding fiscal decentralization, including expenditure and revenue assignments, transfer programs, and sustainability of local government finances, and develops important findings and policy recommendations.
