2 The issue is not whether financial globalization is inherently good or bad, but whether it can be done right, Frederic S. Mishkin, ( Financial Stability and Globalization: Getting It Right, paper presented at the Bank of Spain Conference, Central Banks in the 1st Century, June -9,, Madrid) Main Themes The presentation evolves around three main themes: Managing expectations The exchange rate and monetary regimes adopted matter Risks of credit booms

Rosenberg, IMF Dangers of currency mismatch Conclusions Capital account liberalization has important benefits, but also carries dangers: Makes countries vulnerable to speculation Can fuel credit booms Can lead to currency mismatch all of which can destabilize the banking system and the economy if not managed properly

14 Conclusions (cont.) With open capital accounts, managing expectations is key to success, sound macroeconomic management is a must because markets will penalize misbehavior: Follow sound fiscal policy, enforce transparent accounting Anchor inflation expectations by transparent monetary policy (e.g. inflation targeting), ensure central bank independence Strengthen financial supervision, give sufficient independence to supervisory agencies so that they can withstand political pressure Strengthen information and legal systems
