Emerging Markets and the Global Economy investigates analytical techniques suited to emerging market economies, which are typically prone to policy shocks. Despite the large body of emerging market finance literature, their underlying dynamics and interactions with other economies remain challenging and mysterious because standard financial models measure them imprecisely.

Describing the linkages between emerging and developed markets, this collection systematically explores several crucial issues in asset valuation and risk management. Contributors present new theoretical constructions and empirical methods for handling cross-country volatility and sudden regime shifts. Usually attractive for investors because of the superior growth they can deliver, emerging markets can have a low correlation with developed markets. This collection advances your knowledge about their inherent characteristics.

Foreword by Ali M. Kutan

"Researchers and practitioners in business and economics present empirical studies on macroeconomic and microeconomic issues regarding emerging financial markets and their interaction with the global economy. They test economic and finance theories and apply current econometric methodologies."--ProtoView.com, March 2014

Foreword by Ali M. Kutan

"With expectations of changes in U.S. Federal Reserve quantitative easing (QE) policies, linkages among financial markets and their effects on emerging markets become again of interest. This Handbook covers this area of research, including new perspectives on spillovers between commodity and stock markets using recent advances in financial econometrics."--Andre Mollick, University of Texas
