Should We Fear Capital Flows?

(p.103) Chapter Three Should We Fear Capital Flows?
International Financial Markets

René M. Stulz

University of Chicago Press

This chapter analyzes the advantages and disadvantages of capital flows for the international financial market. It explains the benefits of capital mobility which include reduction of the cost of capital, improvement in corporate governance and differentiation of a country's capital from its investments. This chapter considers the issue of whether the costs of sudden withdrawals of capital by foreign investors can offset the benefits of capital mobility. It also argues that the appropriate policies to eliminate the fragility of emerging economies are policies that foster better financial structures, so that long-term contracting can be supported.

Keywords:   capital flows, international financial markets, capital mobility, cost of capital, corporate governance, foreign investors
