Cary, North Carolina, U.S.A. 2006 Hard Cover Fine in Very Good jacket This hard cover book has a dust jacket with a black and white picture from the past of people walking down ... a crowded street and a colorful photo of people from the modern era walking down a crowded street. The book studies data on sovereign bonds issued by borrowing developing countries between 1870 and 1913 and in the present day, in an effort to identify the characteristics of successful borrowers during these two periods and show that global crisises or contagion are a feature of the 1990s hardly known during a previous era of globalization. The book is in fine condition while the dust jacket is in very good condition. The book has 193 pages including an index and measures 5 1/2 by 9 inches. Read more Show Less

Overview

The frequency and virulence of recent financial crises have led to calls for reform of the current international financial architecture. In an effort to learn more about today's international financial environment, the authors turn to an earlier era of financial globalization between 1870 and 1913. By examining data on sovereign bonds issued by borrowing developing countries in this earlier period and in the present day, the authors are able to identify the characteristics of successful borrowers in the two periods. They are then able to show that global crises or contagion are a feature of the 1990s which was hardly known in the previous era of globalization. Finally, the authors draw lessons for today from archival data on mechanisms used by British investors in the 19th century to address sovereign defaults. Using new qualitative and quantitative data, the authors skilfully apply a variety of approaches in order to better understand how problems of volatility and debt crises are dealt with in international financial markets.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This meticulous and imaginative study represents a real breakthrough for our understanding of pre-First World War financial "globalization" ... essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how internationally integrated bond markets functioned in what is sometimes called (perhaps misleadingly) the world economy's "golden age".' -Niall Ferguson, Laurence A. Tisch Professor of History, Harvard University

'The great economic histories, for example by Bairoch, Braudel, Cipolla, de Vries, and Pirenne, are full of detailed facts and broad ideas. Emerging Markets and Financial Globalization belongs in the same category (and on the same bookshelf) for a simple reason - like the classics, you cannot pick up this volume without learning or thinking something new. Sovereign bond spreads shed great light on both how the world used to operate and where it may now be headed.' -Simon Johnson, Kurtz Professor, Sloan School of Management, MIT

"Accessible writing, elegant analysis, and profound insights - a must read for those interested in financial globalization." -Jeffrey G. Williamson, Laird Bell Professor of Economics, Harvard University
