Summary Comparisons for Nonbank “Other Capital” Flows: IBS and National Balance of Payments Estimates, Annual Average Flows, 1986–89
(In billions of U.S. dollars; outflow ( – ))
|IBS1||BOP||IBS less BOP2|
|Net flow, total||−28.8||−7.5||−21.3|
|Countries except United States|
|Net flow, total||−36.4||−9.9||−26.5|
IBS liabilities for major countries exclude portfolio claims held by reporting banks. Table includes countries that have larger nonbank transactions in IBS than in the nearest equivalent balance of payments figures. The United States appears separately because it has large discrepancies and a positive average adjustment (net inflow) that partly offsets the adjustment for other countries.
Actual adjustments to capital flows were made on an annual basis.
