Global Shock, Risks, and Asian Financial Reform

Publication | December 2014

With growing complexity in the world of finance, and the resultant higher frequency of financial crises, attention has shifted toward the inadequacy of financial regulation.

The book expertly examines what this episode means for Asia's financial sector and its stability, and what the implications will be for the region's financial regulation. By focusing on legal and institutional frameworks, the book also elaborates on various issues and challenges in terms of how financial liberalization can maximize the benefits and minimize the risks of crisis.

This book is a co-publication of ADB and Edward Elgar Publishing.
