Volatility in capital flows has increased significantly in recent years, particularly since the global financial crisis of 2008, making capital flow management one of the biggest challenges facing emerging market economies. How successful were these countries in managing their capital flows inthe face of volatile global capital flows during 2003-12? And how effective were policymakers in stemming the fallout on the economies of these countries? The essays by eminent contributors compare and contrast the theoretical paradigm and empirical evidence on merits of capital account liberalization and the role of capital account management. With special focus on emerging market economies, the debates focus on ways to attract larger flows ofcapital to finance investment while safeguarding macro-management and averting sudden stops, flight to quality, and the resultant destabilizing forces to the economy. Bringing together the perspectives of academics and researchers on the one hand, and central bankers on the other, this volume offersa deeper understanding of capital account management which has remained one of the most debated topics among policymakers in the past decade.
