Institute for International Economics :
  URL: http://www.iie.com/CATALOG/WP/1999/99-8.pdf
  Is sovereign borrowing so different from corporate debt that there is no need for bankruptcy-style procedures to protect debtors? With the waiver of immunity, sovereign debtors who already face severe disruption from short-term creditors grabbing their currency reserves are also exposed to litigious creditors trying to seize what assets they can in a `race of the vultures'. Shielding sovereign debtors from inter-creditor conflict by authorised standstills on payments doubtless runs some risk of debtor's moral hazard. But the lack of an orderly procedure for resolving sovereign liquidity crises means that the IMF is de facto forced to bail out countries in trouble. This leads to both debtor and creditor moral hazard, as investors lend without monitoring, knowing that their investments are essentially guaranteed. The strategic case for legalising standstills is to rescue the international financial system from this `time consistent' trap.

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development Technical Paper 154: Infrastructure Development and Regulatory Reform in Sub-Saharan Africa: The Case of Air Transport
  URL: http://www.oecd.org/dev/PUBLICATION/tp/Tp154.pdf
  This Technical Paper analyses the main policy issues raised by regulatory reform in air transport in sub–Saharan Africa. Its basic premise is that improving air infrastructure is of paramount importance for the region as it tries to integrate more thoroughly into the world economy. On the basis of the experience of OECD countries with privatisation, liberalisation, and regulatory design, the author analyses progress being made in sub– Saharan Africa and identifies three important case studies: the restructuring of the regional airline of Francophone Western Africa, the sell–off of the state–owned airline of Kenya, and the overall reform process in South Africa, by far the largest market in the sub–continent.

Building Poverty Reduction Strategies -- World Bank
  URL: http://worldbank.org/poverty/strategies/
  This World Bank site considers a new framework for reducing poverty worldwide. The three steps of this outline are highlighted. "Understanding the nature and locus of poverty" considers the demographics of the world's poor. The second step, "Choosing public actions that have the highest poverty impact," examines the factors necessary for choosing public actions that will merit the highest impact on poverty. Finally, the provisions for monitoring the chosen poverty outcome indicators are explained in "Selecting and tracking outcome indicators." This site's rich resources include information and data on poverty such as regional and social indicators, household surveys, and country data sets, and an extensive list of related links. An online library holds reports, working papers, speeches, and other materials from the World Bank as well as from other resources. Interested users may also subscribe to PovertyNet, a bimonthly e-newsletter.

International Monetary Fund Working Paper 99142: From toronto Terms to the HIPC Initiative: A Brief History of Debt Relief for Low-Income Countries
  URL: http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/wp/1999/wp99142.pdf
  The low-income country debt crisis had its origins in weak macroeconomic policies, and official creditors' willingness to take risks unacceptable to private lenders. Payments problems were initially addressed through non-concessional re-schedulings and new lending that maximized financing while containing the budgetary costs for creditors. This led to an un-sustainable buildup in debt stocks. More recently, debt ratios have improved, reflecting both adjustment and substantial debt relief. The paper estimates debt relief initiatives since 1988 have cost creditors at least $30 billion, and possibly much more. This compares with the estimated costs of about $27 billion under the enhanced HIPC Initiative.

Institute for Developement Policy and Management (IDPM) Information Systems for Public Sector Management Working Paper 8/1999: Information Management, IT and Government Transformation: Innovative Approaches in the new South Africa
  URL: http://www.man.ac.uk/idpm/ispsm8.pdf
  Governments worldwide are faced with the challenge of transformation and the need to modernize administrative practices and management systems. This paper considers problems with existing government processes in South Africa, and presents a generally-applicable framework for analysis of existing government information systems prior to transformation. It argues that a central theme of government transformation is development of a culture of information management to ensure that information systems fit the task for which they are procured.

FRB BOG Finance and Economics Discussion Series 9947: Option Prices with Uncertain Fundamentals Theory and Evidence on the Dynamics of Implied Volatilities
  URL: http://www.bog.frb.fed.us/pubs/feds/1999/199947/199947pap.pdf
  In an incomplete information model, investors' uncertainty about the underlying drift rate of a firm's fundamentals affects option prices through (i) endogenous and belief-dependent stochastic volatility, (ii) stochastic covariance between returns and volatility, and (iii) a market price of "belief risk." For the special case where the drift takes only two values, the authors provide an option pricing formula using Fourier Transforms. The model calibrated to 1960-1998 S&P 500 real earnings growth shows that investors' uncertainty explains inter temporal variation in the slope and curvature of implied volatility curves as well as the conditional moments of the state-return density obtained from option data. The calibrated model generates hedging `violations' of one-factor markov and deterministic volatility function models with roughly empirical frequencies.
