 Managing Systemic Risk

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the nature of systemic risk in the international financial system and the dilemmas that face national regulators who seek to protect their economies from the ravages of financial contagion and payment-system breakdown. It addresses the concept of global governance, along with a history of the recent demise of the Bretton Woods system, which has been followed by lower rates of economic growth in most countries and by increased volatility and risk in the global financial system.

Keywords: international financial system; global governance; Bretton Woods system; financial markets
