(p.259) Chapter Seven Blueprints for a New Global Financial Architecture
International Financial Markets

Charles W. Calomiris

University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the problems associated with the existing global financial architecture and proposes a set of solutions to those problems. These include reformulation of rules governing domestic bank safety-net policies, the lending policy of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), international competition in banking, and government debt management policies. These proposals are intended to replace existing lending programs including the Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) and ad hoc emergency lending by the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank. This chapter also evaluates the feasibility of implementing the proposed rules.
