This book is a collection of six studies on behaviour of financial and economic variables in emerging and Euro markets. It includes the latest empirical studies on 32 emerging economies. The studies cover examination of the behaviour of interest rates, banks' credit and default risks, sovereign bond markets, effectiveness of inflation targeting, and dynamics of external debt and growth. There is currently no single book that addresses all these issues. This is a valuable book for all those who are working on emerging markets.
