Product Description

From the Publisher

The text considers institutional foundations of all financial markets. It emphasizes three fundamental elements that any financial market needs to function well: sound law and regulation, reliable systems of information and control, and thoughtful management of the national government's fiscal balance and the value of its currency.
The text is complemented by seven original cases that are available through Primis Online. The cases are: Hungarian Telephone and Cable Corporation (for the subject of privatization); Champacoal (American banker opening a large international bank in Hanoi covers subject of information); Gazprom (international oil company doing business in Russia covers subject of information); Banco Itau and the Real Plan (Brazilian bank covers subject of inflation); Yuval Ran and Israel Credit Lines (covers subject of building financial institutions); BancoSol (Bolivian Bank covers subject of building financial institutions); Peregrine Investments (crash of hot securities firm in East Asia covers subject of building financial institutions). In addition to obtaining cases, faculty can also easily build a custom version of the text at
The authors provide a large amount of recent academic research, as well as practical experience in emerging financial markets. They quantify characteristics of countries so that comparisons and conclusions can be as well grounded as possible. They not only report research results, but also show some of the country-level data that underlies the studies. Thus, chapters often have appendices that list or quantify various attributes country by country. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

very good intro to emerging financial markets 8 April 2006
By grouchy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I used this book as a secondary book in an MBA class in international financial institutions. The students liked the book (not the price) and I enjoyed teaching from these very well edited teaching notes. Actually, teaching notes is not the right way to describe the book - as each well-researched and well-written chapter focuses on a very specific area. It was easy to integrate the material across different institutions books. Warmly recommended. Only suggestion: needs updating.
Excellent - where is an update? 20 Aug. 2010
By Shannon Mudd - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book as noted by the other reviewer. It is well organized, well-written and does an excellent job of presenting the context of finance in an emerging market. Although some of the book is now starting to get a bit dated, I still use a few selected chapters in International Finance classes. If it were updated, I could use the whole text.
