This Selected Issues paper uses contingent claims analysis (CCA) to assess risks to the Colombian banking sector. The CCA approach is based on the estimation of the default probability by an entity on its obligations, and is widely used by rating agencies to assess creditworthiness in the corporate sector. The paper also estimates the effects of changes in selected macroeconomic and financial variables on default probabilities for a sample of Colombian banks. The sample includes five banks for which market-based default probabilities are available.

Cracks in the System: World Economy Under Stress" explores the rapidly changing institutional and policymaking landscape around a financial crisis that now threatens a deep and prolonged global recession. The lead article looks at how the world got into the mess and what to do about it, both now and over the medium term. Other articles review options for changing the rules of world finance, examine the case for modernizing the way countries coordinate their policies, and try to draw some lessons from past financial crises. The "other crisis" of high food and fuel prices is also assessed, as the effects extend past the mid-2008 price peak. "People in Economics" profiles Robert Shiller; "Picture This" illustrates how middle-income economies can reach high-income status; "Back to Basics" looks at all the components that make up gross national product; and "Country Focus" spotlights Saudi Arabia.

The inflationary potential of credit creation in the Euro-currency markets has in recent years been a subject of increasing concern to national and international monetary authorities. As a result, there have been numerous attempts, in both official and academic circles, to measure this potential and to find means by which it can be offset or limited.1 Most studies of the subject use techniques developed in the analysis of domestic banking systems. In particular, much work on the Eurocurrency market has followed the credit multiplier approach, originally developed to explain credit expansion in a closed banking system.
