New Paradigms for Financial Regulation: Emerging Market Perspectives

Publication | February 2013

This book presents analytical frameworks and policy prescriptions for emerging markets to help them balance financial development and broader financial inclusion with macroeconomic and financial stability.

The global financial crisis has led to a sweeping reevaluation of frameworks and paradigms for financial market regulation and macroeconomic policies. Some progress has been made in strengthening these frameworks, at national and international levels, but numerous challenges lie ahead in terms of developing an analytical framework to guide these changes in a manner that promotes financial stability. This book provides new perspectives on these issues and evaluates recent developments from an emerging markets perspective.

The main objective of this book is to develop analytical frameworks and policy prescriptions for emerging markets for balancing the goals of financial development and broader financial inclusion, with the imperative of strengthening macroeconomic and financial stability in these economies. The first two chapters provide an overview of the global regulatory landscape and discuss these from the perspective of Asian emerging markets. The book then discusses how to promote financial development and inclusion in these emerging markets and to take account of regulatory concerns and constraints. Different approaches to strengthening macroeconomic frameworks that promote financial stability are then evaluated. Finally, the book turns to issues related to cross-border regulatory coordination, which are becoming increasingly important as financial institutions operate freely across national borders and as capital flows serve as a channel for the rapid international transmission of financial shocks.
