Abstract

Large-scale corporate restructuring made necessary by a financial crisis is one of the most daunting challenges faced by economic policymakers. The government is forced to take a leading role, even if indirectly, because of the need to prioritize policy goals, address market failures, reform the legal and tax systems, and deal with the resistance of powerful interest groups. The objectives of large-scale corporate restructuring are in essence to restructure viable corporations and liquidate nonviable ones, restore the health of the financial sector, and create the conditions for long-term economic growth.

Examines the steps involved in restructuring the corporate sector.

Abstract

The integration of financial markets around the world over the past decade has posed new challenges for policymakers. The speed with which money can be switched in and out of currencies and countries has increased with the efficiency of global communications, considerably shortening the time policymakers have to respond to emerging crises. This pamphlet takes alook at attempts by economists to predict crises by developing early warning systems to signal when trouble may be brewing in currency markets and banking systems.

Abstract

La integración de los mercados financieros de todo el mundo durante la última década ha planteado nuevos retos para las autoridades. La velocidad con que el dinero puede convertirse de una moneda a otra y trasladarse de un país a otro se ha acelerado al mejorar la eficiencia de las comunicaciones globales, lo cual reduce considerablemente el tiempo de que disponen las autoridades para responder a las crisis en ciernes. Este folleto pasa revista a los intentos de los economistas por predecir las crisis mediante el desarrollo de sistemas de alerta temprana a fin de transmitir señales cuando se estén gestando problemas en los mercados de divisas y en los sistemas bancarios.

Abstract

L'intégration des marchés financiers mondiaux au cours de la décennie passée confronte les responsables publics à des difficultés nouvelles. La vitesse à laquelle l'argent peut se déplacer d'un pays à l'autre et d'une monnaie à l'autre a progressé avec l'efficacité des communications mondiales, raccourcissant considérablement les délais dont disposent les responsables publics pour réagir à l'apparition d'une crise. Cette brochure examine les tentatives des économistes pour prédire les crises en élaborant des systèmes d'alerte précoce pour détecter des difficultés en gestation sur les marchés monétaires et dans les systèmes bancaires.

Abstract

Systemic bank restructing aims to improve bank performance - that is, restore solvency and profitability, improve the banking system's capacity to provide financial intermediation between savers and borrowers, and restore public confidence. The authors of this studyanalyzed the experiences of 24 countries that initiated reforms in the1980s and early 1990s.

Abstract

In recent decades, many countries have experienced banking problems requiring a major—and expensive—overhaul of their banking systems. Often, the problems have domestic causes, such as weak banking supervision, political interference, and inadequate capital. Or a country’s banking system may be outmoded and in need of rebuilding, as in the case of many developing countries and all countries moving from centrally planned to market economies. Outside forces, such as a fall in the price of a key export product or commodity, can ignite or worsen a crisis.
