Financial Globalization And Economic Policies
Source: Brookings Institution
The authors review the large literature on various economic policies that could help developing economies effectively manage the process of financial globalization. The central findings indicate that policies promoting financial sector development, institutional quality and trade openness appear to help developing countries derive the benefits of globalization. Similarly, sound macroeconomic policies are an important prerequisite for ensuring that financial integration is beneficial. However, the analysis also suggests that the relationship between financial integration and economic policies is a complex one and that there are unavoidable tensions inherent in evaluating the risks and benefits associated with financial globalization.
