And now, in skimming your long list of accomplishments and institutional affiliations/participations, I was surprised to see no mention of where I'm currently studying: SAIS (The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies), and in particular, The Bologna Center. It would be wonderful to have you as a guest lecturer, seminar participant or, indeed, professor!

Dear Nouriel Roubini, Just wanted to say how grateful I am that you constructed this site. Last year I had a 5000 word summative essay on the crisis for which there were no textbooks and very little help on the web. However when I stumbled upon your site it was a veritable goldmine and helped me get a first in the essay. Now in my final year of my Economics degree I'm again studying the causes of the Asian Crisis for my 12000 word dissertation and although there is now slightly more literature your site will be my first port of call. Thanks once again. By the way the new design is even better.

Dr Roubini I must congratulate you on building such a comprehensive site on economics. First time I visited this site when I was doing my MBA in India that is two years back and after that site has improved a lot.

An excellent site. Comprehensive, yet the analysis provided is extremely concise and accessible. Without it, my MA dissertation would not have been possible. By the way, if anyone visiting this site and working for any fat American investment banks wants to give me a job, then it could well be worth your while - and I'm well up for it. I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Politics at the University of Newcastle (England) last year, and am just finishing my Masters degree in International Political Economy (for which I should receive a distinction). I was also one of nine people short-listed as Journalist of the year in the 1998/9 Guardian Student Media Awards. So anybody interested in employing a motivated, tenacious and perceptive graduate, contact me at You'll not regret it.

Only two things missing that I can see: 1) The history of capital flows to emerging markets and their causes (e.g. capital push-excess northern liquidity seeking southern outlets; or southern projects seeking northern financing): should cover the last two centuries. Kindleberger should not have the last word. 2) A careful analysis of why/how Brazil avoided crisis in 1999.

Excellent site, really. Can you give me advice where I can find data of Asia states caught by crisis between 1995. and end of 1998. (GDP, Budget Surplus or Deficit, Money Supply, Value of Export and Import, Foreign Reserves, Unemployment Rate, Stock Price Index). Thans in advance.

I've been viewing your site ever since the summer of 1998 when it was referred to me from a fellow intern at an international trade organization in Washington DC and I have to say, it is still the best site I've seen concerning the financial crisis. After spending time in Japan and Korea and studying the economic growth in East Asia, this site has really helped me better understand the more technical aspects of the crisis and has served as a great resource for much of my research. Thank you so much for this great service.

I suggest the crisis is over and now is the time to consider shares in recovering Thailand. We are the longest established service, on location for 11 years and we were just picked by Forbes Magazine in their "Best of the Web" survey. What is ? is a qualitative oriented (rather than overly quantitative),independent, unbiased and unaffiliated investment-advisory and information-driven professional services firm focussed on the Stock Market of Thailand. Delivering through its comprehensive web page regular and on time opinions,recommendations and various facts & analysis beyond conventional news sources. We are "on location" for a decade; the investment style is a fundamental "bottom-up" type. In fact, we are obsessed with lowest valuation yet expected high earnings growth along with expected above average and often tax favored dividend income. The quality of the firm and management reputation is of high concern and regular company visits and other means are employed in checking this. is evolving fast has a strong 3 year documented track record and ever growing in content and services.

It's truly unfortunate when the blind lead the blind by the color of the stripes on their graduation gowns. To make the assumption that everyone in Asia thinks and works the same way that Americans do, or worse, New Yorkers, is high up on the scale of arrogance and it's this very arrogance that prevents both the propoganda leaders, called "Economists" or "Professors" in this case from even questioning their own rhetoric. Money is not the source of economic activity it is the RESULT and therefore a result cannot be cause of the same RESULT. In other words, money does not cause money problems. The Asian Crisis was NOT caused by events taking place in Thailand or in Japan during the last decade. The Asian Crisis is a culmination of events that have been in motion at least since the 19th century and if taken from the most fundamental causes, since Adam and Eve. All of the discussion about the IMF and other institutions is first rate RUBBISH. Why would anyone ask a Westerner about things that involve Asian behavior? How many of these "experts" like Rubin and Summers have ANY experience in Asia either living there or speaking even one of the Asian languages? These people have NO clue what goes on or the assumptions that Asians base their business decisions upon so until one understands the Asian mind, it is IMPOSSIBLE to understand the Asian Crisis. It's truly unfortunate that certain lapdogs in this world gravitate towards ivory tower nonsense all the while leaving their kettle of skepticism at home. Had these FANS of Roubini brought that along, they could have poured their skepticism onto these pointless reports and exposed the base medal instead of the gold they were looking for. If you really want to understand the asian crisis, come over to the site with people who have lived and worked in Asia and maintain contact with Asians in their language. Get the truth. Come over to on the Altavista search engine and get from behind the rear end of the IMF theories.

St.Gallen, CH - Saturday, February 05, 2000 at 05:18:13 (EST)

Great Site! I though your technical explication of the "Asian Crisis" was excellent. I conclude from your paper that there was a real appreciation of most Asian currencies, an untenable situation given the countries' growing CA deficits and low returns on capital. This eventually sparked the Crisis, and early misguided attempts to re-inflate the economies just made it worse. However, the Crisis was not purely a financial, or cyclical, phenomenon. Such a conclusion would imply that the devaluations, and floating currencies in the future, would prevent further crises. Unfortunately, the poor return on capital in Asia is symptomatic of far deeper, troubling structural problems, including rampant corruption and crony capitalism. The amount of capital wasted in countries like Thailand, Indonesia, etc. due to these inefficiencies are breathtaking, absolutely breathtaking. As anyone living in Asia recently can tell yoy, many Asian banks are now just walking zombies, gutted by behest loans left unpaid. The fact that many of those loans were financed with foreign capital just made the problem worse. What might have been just local recessions became a regional currency crisis.

It's particularly objective as you present both sides of the issue so well. In this connection, may I seek your opinion on HK's dollar peg's sustainability in a deflationary environment which has taken the real interest rates so high. Even though HK is 85% services economy the real interest rates are hurting sectors like tourism and hotels and retail trades badly. In fact, since HK peg introduction in 1983, this is the first time real interest rates are so high for a long period and there does not seem an easy way out. Can they sustain the peg? I will be very grateful for your considered opinion. Thanking you, M.Lakshmiram

It provides and extremely valuable resource for educators, students, and others interested in global economic affairs. In that context, I would appreciate it if you would consider adding our web site to your links page. "The World Game of Economics" is an interactive computer game that simulates macroeconomic activity and policy in a global setting. Players are the chief economic advisers to countries. They are in charge of fiscal, trade, and monetary policies. Our web site also contains a "World Game News" page that features interesting articles on recent international events and issues; and "The Global Economy" page uniquely displays the relative performance of the world's economies in 1998. This summer we are sponsoring a scholarship contest for students. It is a great opportunity for students to be creative, apply their knowledge of international economics, and compete for a nice award. Details about the game and the contest are explained at the web site. Our URL is: Thanks again for the time and energy you devote to create one of the most educational web sites on the internet.

Proff., I have been visiting your site for a long time, as the wealth of information takes a while to digest. As a rep. of the financial industry, I particularly enjoyed the part that examined why no one could predict the crisis before it occurred. Sandy Weill, the CEO of my firm, said that he was amazed at all of the experts that appeared after the crisis. Unfortunately, none of these experts could warn the financial community before the disaster. It would have prevented a lot of people from losing their jobs and firms from losing money. It was a step back for the advancement of the global economy. Your efforts at opening the world's financial markets are recognized, however. This is necessary to furthering an open, global economy.

The 'journalistic' pieces are good, the analytical pieces (both, the moral hazard approach as well as the Diamond-Dybvig view) are quite worthless. As an economist and someone who has advised investors in emerging market sovereign bonds since 1991 I can assure you the crises in these countries was not the result of investors' rational (or irrational, as the bank run people believe) response to 'new' information. This kind of explanation reminds me of nothing so much as Karl Popper's comment about the difference between science and metaphysics; the latter is essentially unfalsifiable. Both schools of thought, which regrettably are over-represented in your collection, have little predictive power.

What I want to ask you is to add one more issue on corporate governance. I has diiged out several web sites on the issue, but which is very important to the Asian economies. As you know, last year most Asian economies including Japan have been criticized for their faulty(?) governing system in their economies and corporate firms as well. However, I think that it's time for us to approach the problems of the Asian economies in a more prudent perspective.

Ok Great... While these pages are full of the meltdown,depression, crisis, about some comments on the immense wealth re-creation when Asia recovers? Why is nobody writting about this? There actually are many secondary companies in Thailand for example, which have increased earnings besides ridiculous lowest stock valuations. But you would never read about them from the "Macro Boys". Smaller listed stocks for example, are by far beating the Thai Stock exchange index (I just published the proof of this at my web page), because they are not bloated by foreign dept and not in the service sector. They make real things for real people, they export, they are defensive. But they are off "the radar screens" of the institutions and you would never read about them in your usual business sources...who only proclaim how terrible things are here. They are wrong. There are pockets of strenght! Can I show you some real examples? Paul A. Renaud.

Dear Prof In 1997 you wrote in The Economist Newspaper Limited and is reproduced at this site In your articles you said all the way Mahathir is wrong in accusing Gorge Sorros and currency trading as the main cause of the Sea East Asia economics problem. You dont even pause to consider the rational and logic behind why Mahathir had said. Your writing style and opinion is more lika a journalist rather than an economist. You even put it in sinistic manner. But now it is proven that MAHATHIR is RIGHT AND YOU ARE WRONG. Even Krugman is saying what mahathir is saying now (But not before!) Drunkermiller admit that they are at war with Hong Kong What does this mean? Simple! you dont understand very much about SEA economics and currency trading in general. So learn from Mahathir. Below is the reproduction of your article: WHEN things go wrong, there is nothing like finding a scapegoat, ideally a fabulously wealthy foreigner. So when the topic of turbulence on regional currency markets came up at the annual meeting in Malaysia of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) there seemed an obvious cast of villains: international speculators, led by an American financier, George Soros. Malaysia’s prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, was characteristically forthright, repeatedly naming Mr Soros as the guilty man. But Dr Mahathir was not the only leader willing to see his country as the hapless victim of an international conspiracy. The currency crisis that has swept the region, all nine foreign ministers agreed in a joint communiqué, can be traced to the “well co-ordinated efforts to destabilise ASEAN currencies for self-serving purposes”. It would be more useful to look closer to home. Self-criticism, alas, would be less rhetorically satisfying. It would also require pointing fingers directly at the leaders who have led their countries into such turmoil. Many of them have ample reason for wanting to deflect attention. Thailand, whose troubles are by far the most serious among the ASEAN tigers, has the most need of scapegoats. On July 28th, it announced it was entering talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) about a standby line of credit to stem a slide into national bankruptcy. Officials at the central bank, the Bank of Thailand, have blamed Mr Soros for forcing them to float the currency, the baht, on July 2nd. It has fallen about 24% against the dollar since then. Mr Soros certainly was active in this market. Indeed, after the flotation, his chief investment officer, Stanley Druckenmiller, said that the Thais’ stubborn efforts to avert devaluation “kicked our butt”. That certainly was politic, but not entirely candid: although Soros Fund Management did lose money on some baht trades, Mr Druckenmiller this week declined to deny that the company has a substantial forward position. That position, presumably, is now looking rather profitable. For Thailand to blame Mr Soros for its plight is rather like condemning an undertaker for burying a suicide. A decade of economic growth averaging around 8% a year had blinded policymakers to signs of impending crisis, many of which were related to the baht’s peg to a basket of currencies dominated by the dollar. Export growth stalled as the dollar strengthened last year. Local companies and financial institutions meanwhile had piled up dollar debts because interest rates were low and there appeared to be no exchange risk. Much of that foreign debt financed a building boom which turned into a property bubble. To maintain the baht’s value, interest rates had to stay high, crippling property developers, their financiers and some manufacturers. As companies were unable to meet their debt payments, the banking system threatened to seize up. Thailand’s foreign-exchange reserves, depleted by the ill-fated effort to prop up the baht, are insufficient to bail out the private sector. Thailand’s economic problems were compounded by political indecision. The Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Thailand have squandered their reputations as bastions of technocratic prudence and rectitude in the fickle, corrupt world of Thai politics. On July 28th, following the embarrassing cap-in-hand call on the IMF, the governor of the bank resigned; the next day the permanent secretary at the finance ministry, known as an abrasive advocate of fiscal discipline, was forced out. “We have a small problem with working unity,” said Chavalit Yongchaiyudh, the prime minister. The IMF is sure to demand austerity as the condition for its aid (see below). Austerity is always a hard sell, all the more so in Thailand, where politics runs on commercial lines: candidates buy votes to win election, and then abuse the powers of office to recoup their investment. The need to increase taxes and scale back spending will make that difficult. Even now, vested interests may block agreement with the IMF. For all their anti-foreign rhetoric, Thailand’s neighbours are hoping not. Their troubles are less advanced. But the same economic forces confronting Thailand have afflicted their currencies. In Malaysia’s case, the vehemence of Dr Mahathir’s attack on Mr Soros is hard to understand. The Malaysian ringgit has fallen only about 5% against the dollar, and remains much stronger than it was a year ago against almost every other currency in the world. Mr Druckenmiller says his funds have not sold ringgits at all in recent weeks, and he has no position in the forward market (rather, it seems, to his regret). Although Dr Mahathir has compared speculators such as him to drug-dealers, and called them anarchists, saboteurs and rogues, Mr Druckenmiller actually seems more bullish about Malaysia’s economic outlook than does the prime minister. Mr Druckenmiller has predictably little time for Dr Mahathir’s allegation that Mr Soros is motivated by the political agenda of his personal foundation, which supports efforts to build “open societies” in the former Soviet Union and elsewhere. The Soros Foundation has taken an interest in Myanmar, which is run by a repressive military regime, and Mr Soros disapproved of ASEAN’s controversial decision to admit Myanmar to membership on July 23rd. There is, Mr Druckenmiller insists, no connection between Soros Fund Management’s initiatives to make money and the foundation’s attempts to distribute it. Dr Mahathir, however, seems to resent both activities, which makes Mr Soros a politically expedient target. Some historic grudges may also be at work. Malaysia’s central bank and the Soros funds clashed in 1993. And the previous September, the central bank, Bank Negara, lost a fortune betting on sterling when the British currency fell out of the European exchange-rate mechanism and was devalued—an event that is said to have earned Mr Soros a fortune. The prime minister insists that he has evidence of Soros involvement in speculation against the ringgit. But the majority of traders in Kuala Lumpur believe that foreign speculators played only a peripheral role in the currency’s fall. More significant were dollar outflows as foreigners sold shares and repatriated their money, and dealings by local companies as they sought to hedge their foreign borrowing or protect the value of their ringgit deposits. In the Philippines and Indonesia, where Mr Soros also denies any involvement, populist rhetoric against foreign manipulators has a constituency too. After the Philippine peso was forced by market pressure to float on July 11th, the central bank had to ask the IMF for $1 billion (a fraction of Thailand’s probable needs). Something of a witch-hunt followed in the branches of foreign banks alleged to have sold the currency short. Nonetheless, many Philippine officials, and their Indonesian counterparts, seem embarrassed at being associated with Dr Mahathir’s tirades. So, indeed, are some of his own officials and colleagues. While some rather relish the international attention brought by Dr Mahathir’s fierce posturing, economic policymakers know that the markets matter more than the hot words of their political masters. They are aware that stabilising South-East Asia’s currencies depends far less on punishing evil speculators than on Thailand’s willingness to put its economic house in order. © Copyright 1997 The Economist Newspaper Limited.

Proffesor! Thank you very much! I am currently working on my research about the problem of transition economies and it is very difficult to find anything on this matter (currency crisis, stock crashes, correct economic policy etc.) here in Russia. So your page is a source #1 for me. Thanks again.

Thanks very much for setting up and maintaining this page. This is obviously a very time consuming and labor-intensive endeavor but your efforts do not go unappreciated. It is rare to find so much information so well organized and, above all, free! Millie grazie per tutto quello che ha fatto Lei per noi studianti.

Professor! Just a single suggestion: Having some problem getting the first few pages of your lecture notes to print out correctly. Graphs are overlaying texts. Problem seems to clear up by page 4. Have tried twice with same result!! JPLyle

Professor! I learned of your site from a posting on the "SEA-1" Listserv. I am very happy I did! I intend to read evrything I can of the excellent information you have assembled. I am at the Department of State. I work only part time, as I am retired, and I work on issues far from the Asian currency crisis, namely international narcotics and law enforcement. But, the fact is, my background is in international economics: I studied with Professor Bernard Cohen when he taught at the Fletcher School. I have worked at the US embassies in the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, and speak both Thai and Vietnamese. I was in Thailand shortly after the currency was floated last July, and then spent more than a month in Vietnam, traveling from place to place. I am very interested in the debate about the IMF program, reflected in the traditional view that in the wake of a devaluation it is necessary to reduce domestic "absorption" and re-direct resources to exports, and the views championed by Professor Sachs that the IMF program has failed to respond to the real crisi in Asia and that moreover, application of the contractionary program is in fact "the wrong medicine". I'm afraid I'm convinced by the last person I read, but the issue is very stimulating, and I am certain that as I read and study the excellent material you have so generously made available, that my understanding will increase. Thank you for your excellent service to knowledge and to understanding. By the way, I found the "fun design" of your home page very enjoyable. I doubt, though, that anyone could write more contorted English than Greenspan in his statement, which requires several readings and re-readings to understand! John Lyle
