Derivatives in International Capital Flows

Peter Garber

No 6623, NBER Working Papers from National Bureau of Economic Research, Inc

Abstract: This paper will discuss the role of derivative products in international capital flows, especially in providing a means of both reducing and enhancing market risks associated with given net flows. It will emphasize how derivatives can be used to evade risk-control or prudential regulation, circumvent capital controls, drive the dynamics of currency instabilities, and obscure true risk positions and thereby undermine the usefulness of balance of payments capital account categories.
