ERF’s Sixteenth Annual Conference: Selected Papers

Economic Research Forum

Abstract
This volume contains nine papers related to the core theme, all presented at the conference’s plenary or parallel sessions. All were selected for their quality and ability to address the issues lucidly and comprehensively. The selection contains papers by such noted economists as Gerardo della Paolera, Justin Lin and Hasan Ersel. We have attempted to lay out the discussion in its logical order, with the first papers looking into shocks, crises and their determinants, exploring their frequency and intensity and addressing such questions as our ability to predict them in an increasingly unpredictable world, their root causes and how this latest crisis differed from past ones. The papers on vulnerability to external shocks address, among other questions, their impact on economic performance especially in developing countries and finally, those on therapy explore alternative policies to reduce the frequency of global crises and the roles of both financial institutions and governments, particularly in developing countries.
