Abstract: This paper empirically investigates the relationship between surges in capital inflows and the probability of subsequent banking, currency and balance-of-payment crises. Using a panel of developed and emerging economies from 1970 to 2007, it shows that a large capital inflow episode increases substantially the probability of having a banking or a currency crisis in the two following years. The effect is especially large for the case of balance-of-payment crises. The paper also finds that the effect of large capital inflows is different depending on the type of flows characterizing the episode. In particular, large capital inflows that are debt driven significantly increase the probability of banking, currency and balance-of-payment crises, whereas inflows that are driven by equity portfolio investment or foreign direct investment have a negligible effect.
