Ideas for Development in the Americas (IDEA): Volume 18 : January-April, 2009: Dealing with an International Credit Crunch

Apr 2009
This edition of IDEA is based on a new IDB book entitled Dealing with an International Credit Crunch: Policy Responses to Sudden Stops in Latin America. Drawing from research that explored the region's experience with sudden stops in capital flows during the 1990s, the newsletter reviews lessons learned that may be of use today as countries grapple with the current financial morass.
