3. Debate current discussions on the effectiveness of capital flows and development
Omschrijving Globally there is an increasing realization of the need to attract foreign capital and finances for national development in the lower income countries. Foreign financial flows could take the form of foreign direct investment (FDI), foreign equity capital, foreign debt, development aid and increasingly remittances. The impact of capital flows and how best to attract and utilize them, especially in developing countries, remain a crucial policy debate. Moreover, the operations of multilateral and international financial institutions and their protocols are complex. This course deals with the role and impact of external finance for development and the mechanisms for attracting them. It also discusses the dynamics of multilateral institutional arrangements, like the World Bank and the IMF.
