Regional and Global Capital Flows: Macroeconomic Causes and Consequences

Takatoshi Ito Ito and Anne O. Krueger


The volume of capital flows between industrial and developing countries has grown dramatically in the past decade and has become a major issue in a world that is increasingly “globalized.” Here, two experts on this topic have assembled a group of scholars who address different types of capital flows—bank lending, bonds, direct foreign investment—and the implications they hold for economic performance. With its particular focus on the Asian financial crises, this work presents a new model which is concerned with the role of private capital flows.

Keywords: capital flows, industrial countries, developing countries, bank lending, bonds, direct foreign investment, economic performance, Asian financial crises, policy makers
