The Basel capital accords in developing countries.

Gottschalk, Ricardo (2010) The Basel capital accords in developing countries. Palgrave MacMillan, Basingstoke, UK. ISBN 9780230222243. [Book]


This book is about the portion of the banking regulation package that takes the form of capital rules. These rules, designed by the Basel Committee for Banking Supervision are known as the Basel capital accords. A team of internationally leading experts examine potential impacts of the Basel Accords on development finance, focusing in particular on two aspects of development finance: credit to the small- and medium-sized enterprises, which arguably are the percentage of the private sector with the highest job creation capacity, and the existence of a financial system that can support growth and poverty reduction.

This book is essential reading for all those interested in International Finance, Development Economics, globalisation and International relations.
