Surviving the Credit Crunch: How Vulnerable Are Emerging Markets?

Just as generals are often accused of fighting the last war, the seeds of modern economic crises are sown by well-intentioned efforts to prevent a repeat of past ones. However, while the global 'credit crunch' may have its origins in the relaxation of monetary policy following the bursting of the dot com bubble and efforts to avert a US recession post-9/11, its impact on the global economy will be felt via the same transmission mechanisms that have led to past contagion.

But, while a certain amount of scepticism is warranted against those stating that 'it's different this time', the global economy's evolution over the past decade - notably the rise of China and India and the political and economic maturation of many emerging markets - mean that the identity of those most vulnerable, and the ways in which they are exposed, has changed. This report, which draws on BMI's proprietary Sovereign, Country Risk and Industry Ratings systems explains which states and industries are most vulnerable, providing a vital guide to corporate strategists, analysts and financiers seeking to manage their vulnerabilities.
