Abstract or Description

Now that the crisis atmosphere of the second half of 1998 has passed, scholars and practitioners can begin to put recent events into perspective. The questions to be answered include: How deep and serious was the crisis? How well was it managed by the IMF, other international institutions, and leading central banks and governments? Can we improve our crisis management? Can we reduce the frequency and severity of international financial crises?
