    Microfoundations of Economic Success

    Edited by David G. Mayes
    This book uses detailed data on individual firms and households to explore the basis behind Estonia’s record as the most successful of all the EU countries over the last decade. We find that much of the reason is the greater flexibility of the Estonian economy, in both price setting in employment and wages and in consumption. Estonia is also able to adjust to shocks more rapidly and with less cost than other countries. Coupled with a favourable macroeconomic policy and a good institutional structure and legal framework, Estonia will be an example to others despite the recent downturn. Learn More

    Charles A.E. Goodhart
    There are already many papers and books on the causes and course of the current financial crisis, but this is the first and, for the moment, only such book to focus on the regulatory response to it. There are two main attributes that a bank needs to remain in business during a period of turmoil, liquidity to enable it to pay its debts when due, and capital, to absorb losses. Both have been insufficient. Charles Goodhart describes what went wrong and what needs to be done, alongside discussions of deposit insurance, credit rating agencies, prompt corrective action, etc. Learn More

    Edited by Jean-Philippe Touffut
    The number of central banks in the world is approaching 180, a tenfold increase since the beginning of the twentieth century. What lies behind the spread of this economic institution?

Thirteen distinguished economists and central bankers have been brought together to evaluate how central banks work, arrive at their policies, choose their instruments and gauge their success in managing economies, both in times of crisis and periods of growth.

  20. Managing International Financial Instability

    Managing International Financial Instability

    Fabrizio Saccomanni
    Recurrent instability has characterized the global financial system since the 1980s, eventually leading to the current global financial crisis. This instability and the resultant disruptions – sovereign debt defaults, exchange rate misalignments, financial market illiquidity and asset price bubbles – are linked, in this book, to the shortcomings of the global financial system which tends to generate cycles of boom and bust in credit flows. These cycles are set in motion by the monetary impulses of major industrial countries and are amplified and propagated through the operation of global financial markets. Fabrizio Saccomanni argues that to counter such systemic instability requires that national authorities give adequate weight to financial stability objectives when formulating their monetary and regulatory policies. He maintains that appropriate multilateral strategies to deal with unsustainable trends in credit aggregates and asset prices should be devised in the International Monetary Fund in the context of a strengthened framework to deal with global payments imbalances and exchange rate misalignments.
