Call for Chapter: (Financial and Banking Crisis Prediction through Early Warning Systems)
The last decade saw a large number of financial crises in emerging market economies (EMEs) with often devastating economic, social, and political consequences. There are various types of financial crises: currency crisis, banking crisis, sovereign debt crisis, private sector debt crisis, equity market crisis. These financial crises were in many cases not confined to individual economies but spread contagiously to other markets as well. In particular the European Monetary System (ERM) crisis in 1992-1993, the collapse of the Mexican peso with “tequila effects” in 1994-1995, the Asian flu of 1997-1998, the Russia virus in 1998, Brazilian crises of 1999, Turkish currency and banking crisis in 2001 and sub-prime mortgage property crises in USA in 2008 affected a wide group of countries and had systemic repercussions for the international financial system as a whole. These crises played a significant role in the failure of key businesses, declines in consumer wealth estimated in trillions of U.S. dollars, and a downturn in economic activity leading to the 2008–2012 global recession and contributing to the European sovereign-debt crisis.
In view of the large costs associated with an economic and financial crisis, the question of how to predict a crisis has become central. This resulted in the construction of a monitoring tool, the so called Early Warning System (EWS) with the aim of anticipating whether and when individual countries may be affected by a financial and economic crisis.
Currently, I am in the process of editing a forthcoming book publication entitled Financial and Banking Crisis Prediction through Early Warning Systems, to be published by IGI Global, an international publisher of progressive academic research. I would like to take this opportunity to cordially invite you to submit a chapter proposal for consideration in this book.I am certain that your contribution on this topic and/or other related research areas would make an excellent addition to this book.
Please visit http://www.igi-global.com/publish/call-for-papers/call-details/1429 for more details regarding this publication and to submit your chapter proposal. A full chapter submission will not be expected until your proposal has been formally accepted. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you very much for your consideration of this invitation, and I hope to hear from you soon!
