ADBI Working Paper No. 362

Since the 1980s, emerging countries have been urged to welcome foreign capital inflows. The result has often been a pattern of surges, where excessive inflows were followed by damaging 'sudden stops' and reversals. What is needed is a strategy that makes use of the potential benefits of capital 'flowing downhill' (that would require these countries to run current account deficits) while at the same time protecting them from both the excessive inflows and the reversals.
