Capital Flows in Crisis

Washington D.C., USA

October 27-28, 1998



The conference focused on analyzing the financial crises affecting Asian countries and comparing them to the crises faced by Mexico and Argentina. The Asian crisis demonstrated how interconnected the global economy has become by taking into account the dynamics of private capital flows.  The participants at the conference tried to seek solutions to prevent such crises from occurring again. But as we know it, history repeats itself.
