Overview

The Asian financial crisis has precipitated significant changes in real exchange rates in the region that will substantially alter the volume and pattern of international trade. The crisis countries will increase their exports and, especially, reduce their imports. Japan, China, and the other non-crisis countries will experience more complex changes. The trade balances of the United States and Western Europe could deteriorate by $100 billion each, depending on developments in Japan, as a result of the currency movements in Asia.

This study quantifies the impact of the currency changes on the individual countries in Asia, on the United States, on Europe and on other regions on a sector-by-sector basis. It analyzes the additional impact that might occur if China were to devalue its currency as well. It then examines potential trade policy responses to these developments including the risk of an upsurge in protectionist pressure in the United States.

What People Are Saying

Warwick J. McKibbin
This is a clear and well argued analysis of the crisis in Asia. Using an empirical model as a basis for dissecting the many complex interdependencies adds significantly to our understanding of the key policy issues facing Asia and the United States in the aftermath of the crisis.

    an excellent analysis of the Asian financial crisis

    This short book provides an excellent analysis of the Asian financial crisis. It begins with a judicious evaluation of the causes of the crisis, both internal and external. It then presents simulation results based on a computer model which show the impact of the crisis both by industrial sector and by country. A special epilogue to the revised edition presents results which analyze the impact of Japan's lingering problems on the region. The technical material is consigned to appendices so that the general reader is not distracted by it, but these annexes may be of interest to more technically-oriented analysts.
