Recent events remind us how crucial it is that the banking and payments system should be protected from risks and crises. The difficulties that beset Indonesia, South Korea and Thailand in 1997 are a vivid example as are the acute problems confronting Russia in 1998, and the chronic financial malaise that underlies Japan''s macroeconomics underperformance throughout the 1990''s. Even more dramatic was the banking and economic collapse in the United States and much of Europe in the 1930''s.
It is a prime responsibility for central banks to try and prevent and contain the financial crises that could precipitate such a calamity. This book developed from the Central Bank Governors'' Symposium on Financial Stability and written by current policy makers, offers a highly informed account of contemporary policy issues and explores the legal, regulatory, managerial and economic issues that affect central banks, including:
* banking crises
* regulatory and supervisory regimes
* the role of central banks
* crisis management
* the role of bank capital
* capital flows and capital controls.
Financial Stability and Central Banks provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview that will prove to be invaluable to economists, researchers, bankers, policy makers and students in this field.
