The study of international finance looks at the effects of flows of capital between countries, both at on temporary (known as short-term capital flows) and permanent (known as foreign direct investment, or FDI) basis. International finance also studies the economics of exchange rates, and the behaviour of international financial markets for instruments such as bonds and stock.
- Euro & EMU Resources
The whole range of academic research, official documentation and newspaper reports, as well as links to datasets, on all things pertaining to the Euro, courtesy of Giancarlo Corsetti. Another site of interest to Euro researchers, especially from an accounting and finance perspective, is the Knowledge Guide to the Euro.
- Asian Financial Crisis
The definitive source for information on the Asian financial crisis. Includes a detailed chronography, a large repository of papers, as well as links to sites from within Asia. A viable alternative exists.
- International Financial Institutions Research Site
The International Financial Institutions Research Site contains research material pertaining to the major international financial insitutions (read: mainly the IMF and World Bank). It's selling point is the large collection of links to academic research on these bodies.
- Soft Currency Economics
Collects full-text papers on "soft currency economics" - a minor school of thought not dissimilar to post-Keynesian economics, focussing on the role of endogenous money. Maintained mostly by Warren Mosler, a retired fixed income trader, but includes papers from others in the same vein.
- Currency Boards & Dollarisation
Kurt Schuler's site on currency boards, dollarisation and related topics. A good site on brushing up on an uncommon topic. Another more comprehensive alternative (although slightly messier) is this currency board homepage.
- TR(I) Target Zone Database
The Theoretical Research Institute, primarily a one-man show run by Colin Rose, maintains a database of the exchange rate target zone literature, as well as churning out papers on mathematical modelling in economics.
- International Economics
This is a large collection (links number to the thousands) of annotated links, though not all directly related to international economics, which can be a bother. The site also links to course syllabi from many universities and provides a handy FAQ explaining several basic international economic issues.
