Finance & Development
December 01, 2003 -- Country Focus: The Commonwealth of Independent States -- Finance & Development - December 2003 - Volume 40 - Number 4
A decade after starting their transition to market economies, the CIS countries have achieved impressive economic growth but need to implement further structural reforms to strengthen the investment climate; a statistical analysis illustrated with six graphs.

September 01, 2001 -- Finance & Development, September 2001 - Intergovernmental Fiscal Relations in Russia
By Nadezhda Bikalova - Although Russia is legally a federation, it has experienced serious problems in developing and maintaining satisfactory fiscal relations between its central government and regional and local governments. How have these problems arisen, and what steps might make Russia's fiscal federalism work better?
June 01, 2001 -- Finance & Development, June 2001 - Competition and Business Entry in Russia
By Harry G. Broadman - Despite privatization, robust competition is still lacking in much of Russia's industrial sector, stifled by excessive concentration, vertical integration, and geographic segmentation. Many established firms enjoy protection from new (and potential) rivals. Reforming anticompetitive business structures and lowering barriers to entry are key to Russia's post-privatization reform program.
September 01, 2000 -- Finance & Development, September 2000 - The Modernization Challenge Facing Russian President Putin
By Andrei Nesterenko: Having established and strengthened basic market and democratic institutions during the 1990s, Russia became an emerging market country that badly needs a modernization breakthrough. How can the government of President Vladimir Putin attain this goal?
September 01, 2000 -- Finance & Development, September 2000 - Building Treasury Systems
By Barry H. Potter and Jack Diamond: Most OECD countries rely on treasury systems operated by their finance ministries to manage government finances. The Baltics, Russia, and other countries of the former Soviet Union, which did not have comparable systems, are building them from scratch.
June 01, 2000 -- Finance & Development, June 2000 - Stakeholders, Governance, and the Russian Enterprise Dilemma
By Raj Desai and Itzhak Goldberg: Over the past decade, Russia's efforts to achieve economic growth and restructure its economy have been seriously hampered by a dearth of investment and the proliferation of barter and arrears. Given current conditions, how might Russian economic reform efforts best be supported?
June 01, 1999 -- Finance & Development, June 1999 - Lessons of the Russian Crisis for Transition Economies
Guest Author Yegor Gaidar says that soft budget constraints and weak administrative controls brought Russia to the brink of hyperinflation. The lesson is to disinflate rapidly and to impose hard budget constraints quickly.
December 01, 1998 -- Finance & Development, December 1998 - Monetary Policy in Russia
By Tomás J.T. Baliño - Over the last few years, Russia has succeeded in developing the tools to carry out an effective monetary policy in a market economy. What monetary policy instruments has the central bank used to achieve this objective, and what lessons has it learned in the process?
September 01, 1998 -- Finance & Development September 1998 - Energy Tax Reform in Russia and Other Former Soviet Union Countries
By Dale Gray - The taxation of oil and gas production and consumption has become an important fiscal issue in most countries of the former Soviet Union. How can these countries modify the taxation of their energy sectors to increase fiscal revenues, improve efficiency, and encourage foreign investment?

Financial Market Update
July 16, 2012 -- Financial Market Update:
Risks to financial stability have increased since the April 2012 Global Financial Stability Report (GFSR). Sovereign yields in southern Europe have risen sharply amid further erosion of the investor base. Elevated funding and market pressures pose risks of further cuts in peripheral euro area credit. The measures agreed at the recent European Union (EU) leaders’ summit provide significant steps to address the immediate crisis. Aside from supportive monetary and liquidity policies, the timely implementation of the recently agreed measures, together with further progress on banking and fiscal unions, must be a priority. Uncertainties about the asset quality of banks’ balance sheets must be resolved quickly, with capital injections and restructurings where needed. Growth prospects in other advanced countries and emerging markets have also weakened, leaving them less able to deal with spillovers from the euro area crisis or to address their own home-grown fiscal and financial vulnerabilities. Uncertainties on the fiscal outlook and federal debt ceiling in the United States present a latent risk to financial stability. Text also available in: عربي; 中文; Español; Français; 日本語; Русский.
January 25, 2011 -- Financial Market Update:
Nearly four years after the onset of the largest financial crisis since the Great Depression, global financial stability is still not assured and significant policy challenges remain. Balance sheet restructuring is incomplete and leverage is still high. The interaction between banking and sovereign credit risks in the euro area remains a critical factor. At the global level, regulatory reforms are still needed to put the financial sector on a sounder footing. At the same time, accommodative policies in advanced economies and relatively favorable fundamentals in some emerging market countries are spurring capital inflows, so emerging countries must watch for signs of asset price bubbles and excessive credit.

July 07, 2010 -- Financial Market Update:
Despite generally improved economic conditions and a long period of healing after the failure of Lehman Brothers, progress toward global financial stability has recently experienced a setback. Sovereign risks in parts of the euro area have materialized and spread to the financial sector there, threatening to spill over to other regions and re-establish an adverse feedback loop with the economy. Further decisive follow-up is needed to the significant national and supranational policy responses that have been taken in order to strengthen confidence in the financial system and ensure continuation of the economic recovery. Text also available in: عربي; 中文; Español; Français; 日本語; Русский; and 한국어.
January 26, 2010 -- Financial Market Update:
Systemic risks have continued to subside as economic fundamentals have improved and substantial public support remains in place. Despite improvements, financial stability remains fragile in many advanced countries and some hard-hit emerging market countries. A top priority is to improve the health of these banking systems so as to ensure the credit channel is normalized. The transfer of financial risks to sovereign balance sheets and the higher public debt levels also add to financial stability risks and complicate the exit process. Capital inflows into some emerging market countries are beginning to raise concerns about asset price and exchange rate pressures. Policymakers in these countries may need to exit earlier from their supportive policies to contain financial stability risks. For all countries, the goal is to exit from the extraordinary public interventions to a global financial system that is safer, but retains the dynamism needed to support sustainable growth.
Text also available in: عربي; 中文; Español; Français; 日本語; Русский; and Tiếng Việt.
July 08, 2009 -- Financial Market Update:
Financial conditions have improved, as unprecedented policy intervention has reduced the risk of systemic collapse and expectations of economic recovery have risen. Nonetheless, vulnerabilities remain and complacency must be avoided. The financial sector continues to be dependent on significant public support, resulting in an unparalleled transfer of risk from the private to the public sector. At the same time, however, work will need to begin on exit strategies from the various financial, monetary, and fiscal support policies in order to address market uncertainty. Medium-term policies need to ensure that steps taken to normalize policies and markets are consistent with establishing a lasting framework of sound financial regulation, sustainable fiscal balances, and the maintenance of price stability.
Text also available in: عربي; 中文; Español; Français; 日本語; русский.
January 28, 2009 -- Financial Market Update:
Risks to financial stability have intensified since October 2008. Financial markets worldwide reflect ongoing deleveraging pressures amidst a deepening economic downturn. In spite of extensive policies, the global financial system remains under intense stress.

July 28, 2008 -- Financial Market Update:
Global financial markets continue to be fragile and indicators of systemic risk remain elevated. Credit quality across many loan classes has begun to deteriorate with declining house prices and slowing economic growth. The resilience of emerging markets to the global turmoil is being tested as external financing conditions tighten and policymakers face rising inflation.

January 29, 2008 -- Financial Market Update:
Global financial market conditions have worsened since the publication of the October 2007 Global Financial Stability Report as the fallout from the subprime mortgage crisis widens. What began as a test of the structured credit markets and the associated funding needs has reached a new phase where credit concerns now extend beyond the subprime sector.

October 31, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Caucasus, Central Asia Set for Robust Growth, But Global Risks Weigh

September 27, 2011 -- IMF Survey: Russia Should Leverage Commodity Boom to Boost Growth
Russia's economy grew by 4 percent in 2010, aided by the boom in commodity prices, in particular oil. For 2011, the IMF is projecting growth of 4.3 percent. But Russia could do much better. Before the financial crisis, the economy was growing at more than 7 percent per year, and it could take off again if economic policies and policy institutions are strengthened.

August 07, 2009 -- IMF Survey: Russia Needs to Bolster Banks, Target Fiscal Stimulus

July 22, 2009 -- IMF Survey: BRICs Drive Global Economic Recovery

July 11, 2002 -- IMF Staff Papers - Volume 49, Number 2, 2002 - Explaining Russia's Output Collapse
This paper explores sources of the output collapse in Russia during transition. A modified growth-accounting framework is developed that takes into account changes in factor utilization that are typical of the transition process. The results indicate that declines in factor inputs and productivity were both important determinants of the output fall. The contribution of the productivity drop was critical, but significantly smaller than previously reported.
