The Economic Issues series aims to make available to a broad readership of nonspecialists some of the economic research being produced on topical issues by IMF staff. The series draws mainly from IMF Working Papers, which are technical papers produced by IMF staff members and visiting scholars, as well as from policy-related research papers.
This Economic Issue draws on material originally contained in IMF Occasional Paper 166, Hedge Funds and Financial Market Dynamics, by a Staff Team led by Barry Eichengreen and Donald Mathieson with Bankim Chadha, Anne Jansen, Laura Kodres, and Sunil Sharma, and “The Near Collapse and Rescue of Long-Term Capital Management” in Chapter 3 of World Economic Outlook and International Capital Markets: Interim Assessment, December 1998, by Garry Schinasi. Readers may purchase the Occasional Paper ($18; $15 academic rate) and the WEO/ICM Interim Assessment ($36; $25 academic rate; also available on the IMF website).
