Government And Market Failures In Emerging Market Economies

Jan 01, 2008

Download This research paper from Columbia University discusses how market and government failures influence the design of institutions supporting corporate finance in emerging market economies. Weaknesses in these institutions are an important part of the explanation for why more capital is not flowing from the capital-rich to the capital-poor economies. Even in countries that now enjoy large inflows of direct investment may find weak corporate governance and poorly functioning bankruptcy procedures to be critical if these flows were to cease for exogenous reasons.
