Indirect effects economic slowdown5 l.jpg
Indirect effects: Economic slowdown

Economic slowdown…

… discourages exports of all countries, but especially of countries with high exports to developed countries.

… encourages fall commodity prices, which affects many of the poorest developing countries.

… discourages investment in all countries, but especially in poorer developing countries which are perceived to be riskier.

… encourages increased profit remittances from developing countries to developed.

… discourages workers’ remittances from developed countries to developing countries.





Concluding thoughts l.jpg
Concluding thoughts

The unraveling of the crisis:

Credit crunch -- falling investment -- falling demand -- falling exports -- falling commodity prices -- falling economic growth -- falling aid?

Resolution of the current crisis:

Possibly restrict capital outflows -- rescue systemically relevant financial institutions -- pursue counter-cyclical macroeconomic policies – coordinate macro-economic policies -- step-up social protection.

Prevention of future crisis:

Strengthen regulation of and oversight over financial markets – address moral hazard through micro-prudential regulations – limit speculative capital flows through macro-prudential policies – discourage large and prolonged exchange rate misalignments.

Concluding thoughts

“Financial markets have for some time had an independent capacity to destabilize developing countries; there are now increasing indications of the vulnerability of all countries to financial crisis. […] Overall, there appears to be a need for more collective control and guidance over international finance. ”

The Trade and Development Report 1990.
