But is it really true that financial openness hasn't increased volatility and fragility in rich countries (ie those with well developed financial regulatory institutions)? It certainly seems that the corporate stock, corporate bond, and housing markets in the US, the UK, and Australia have shown much greater swings around their long-term averages in the 30+ years that openness has been increasing. I haven't seen the paper, but I'm curious how they're coding liberal market economies like the US and the UK compared to the social market economies in western Europe: these two groups may look very similar with respect to certain measures of financial sophistication and openness, but the latter contain institutional roadblocks that impede the build-up of asset price bubbles.

i deeply
share your skepticism
about trans border hi fi flows
even in north markets

why are bubbles in asset markets and commodity markets
worse then in
product and job markets ??

no one controls credit flows
for assets
regardless of sector inflation
because its real economy
effects are indirect

okay there's no analogue
no human capital markets
or are there

the household
credit market
has two pillars
lot value and earning power

the first is of course subject to notorious bubbles

rational irrationality
fueled by credit flows

but isn't also
the implicit capitalized value
of a job earnings stream ?????

human capital
isn't for sale
only lease
but its implied value
is in flux every time
the credit line
borrow max
standards change

That nations have to worry about the political glue that holds them together as they "liberalise" really can't be stressed enough.

Your paper is a beacon, in a sea of potentially injurious economic theoretical simplification.

I was dumbfounded the day Thaksin sold his telecommunications concession to a sovereign investment fund, Singapore Temasek, after weeks of rumours and zero public consultations. In fact at the time you couldn't even refer to the company as being his, because it was in the name of his children registered in the Caribbean in a tax shelter. That was the beginning of the end and you can't say that sell-offs of large American corporations to foreign exchange reserve liquidations by heavy saving capital outflow constrain China hasn't been an issue.

Smaller, smarter, more humbler, more educational, FDI like Googles for profit charity idea, instead of gigantic controversial MNCs seems to be the way to go.

The great danger with the current wisdom is that, if one thinks one knows the "right" institutional enhancements that make liberalization work, it becomes a justification for ever deeper interventions into the affairs of other countries. Your approach, which recognizes the locally specific character of institutional quality, avoids this.

I have just discovered this blog, and while I enjoy dani rodrik's analyses, it's the comments section that's caused me to spend all night exploring the blog. I am particularly fascinated by paine, and because this entry is the most recent one s/he has commented on I'm posting this inquiry: who is paine, and why is he or she almost never responded to? paine's perspective is, I think, consistently coming from a postcolonial perspective I tend to share. apologies for posting about a commenter, I'd be very interested to know if he or she has a blog or publications I could look over ...

Religious knowledge, according to religious practitioners, may be gained from religious leaders, sacred texts(scriptures), and/or personal revelation. Some religions view such knowledge as unlimited in scope and suitable to answer any question; others see religious knowledge as playing a more restricted role, often as a complement to knowledge gained through physical observation. Some religious people maintain that religious knowledge obtained in this way is absolute and infallible(religious cosmology).

I think this is a great post. One thing that I find the most helpful is number five. Sometimes when I write, I just let the flow of the words and information come out so much that I loose the purpose. It’s only after editing when I realize what I’ve done. There’s defiantly a lot of great tips here I’m going to try to be more aware of.

Many places and centers offer business and trade promotions to both buyers and supplier.What about the differences in skill intensities across industries? The job losses in the relatively unskilled-labor intensive battery industry should have little effect on the relatively skilled-labor intensive machinery
