International Monetary Fund WP99120: Measuring Misalignment - Purchasing Power Parity and East Asian Currencies in the 1990s
  URL: http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/wp/1999/wp99120.pdf
  The concept of purchasing power parity (PPP) is used to evaluate whether eight East Asian currencies were overvalued on the eve of the 1997 crises. The Johansen and Horvath-Watson co-integration test procedures are applied to bilateral and multilateral exchange rates, deflated using CPIs, producer price indices (PPIs), and price indices of export goods. The second deflator yields the greatest evidence of "stationarity". The study find's that the Malaysian, Philippines, and Thai currencies were overvalued, while the Korean and Indonesian were substantially undervalued. Mixed results were obtained for the others. Measures of the equilibrium rate based on time trends in CPI-deflated rates typically suggest larger overvaluations.

NBER Working Paper No. W7361: Banks, the IMF, and the Asian Crisis
  URL: http://papers.nber.org/papers/W7361.pdf
  This paper examines the impact of the Asian crisis on bank stocks across four Western countries and six Asian countries. In the second half of 1997, Western banks experienced positive returns. In contrast East Asian bank indices incurred losses in excess of 60% in each of the crisis countries. Most of this poor performance is explained by the exposure of the banks to general stock market movements in their countries. Currency exposures affected banks adversely beyond their stock market impact only in Indonesia and the Philippines. Except for the Korean program, IMF programs had little effect on bank values. The announcement of the Korean program increased shareholder wealth at the U.S. banks with the highest reported exposure in Korea by about 7% and had a favorable effect on bank shareholder wealth in all the countries in our sample but one. There is no evidence that the Korean IMF program had a positive impact on banks without exposure to Korea and hence our results do not support the argument that such programs reduce systemic risk.

Soft Currency Economics
  URL: http://www.warrenmosler.com/
  Created by Warren Mosler, a partner of Adams, Viner, and Mosler, Ltd., Soft Currency Economics aims to "clearly demonstrate, through pure force of logic, that much of the public debate on many of today's economic issues is invalid, often going so far as to confuse costs with benefits." Mosler attempts to show this through a variety of articles and opinion pieces published from 1997 to the present. Soft Currency Economics also includes a lengthy introduction, which introduces many of Mosler's main concerns, as well as a bibliography.
