The literature on long-run financial stability has focused majorly on developed financial markets because of the abundance of data. As an example, the Macrohistory database which is a reference in this strand of literature is restricted to 17 developed economies and does not include any Latin American country. On occasion, authors like Bordo or Eichengreen have included Brazil, Chile or Argentina in their research. These articles, however, are the exception rather than the rule.
However, conclusions from those studies have been generalised, under the assumption that they apply to other countries, even if they were not included in the database from which they originated. Consequently, under scenarios of heightened financial instability or crisis, policymakers in Latin America, Asia or Africa have put forward policies and adjustment programs that do not account for their countries’ specificities.
This special issue of Journal ODEON (Observatory on Economy and Numerical Operations) is aimed at gathering articles that deal with matters of long-run financial stability or particular crises episodes in Iberoamerican countries. Articles that deal with Asia, Africa or Oceania will not be considered for this issue but may be included in future issues of the journal. We are looking for papers on one or several of the following topics:
- Crisis events in the stock, real estate, exchange rate or credit markets, or the banking sector.
- The determinants of the evolution of financial instability in the financial system or stock, real estate, exchange rate or credit markets.
- The financial cycle or the joint movement between asset prices and credit aggregates.
- The dependency of prices of local assets on international long-run trends.
- Changes in regulation due to heightened financial instability or crises.
- The link between commodity prices and terms of trade with the behaviour of stock, real estate, exchange rate or credit markets.
