ABSTRACT Using data from the recent crisis, the authors analyze financial linkages between market liquidity and bank solvency measures in advanced economies and emerging market bond and stock markets. A multivariate generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity model is estimated to gauge the extent of co-movements of these financial variables across markets. The findings indicate that the notion of possible decoupling of financial markets had been misplaced. In fact, interlinkages between funding stress and equity markets in advanced economies and emerging market financial indicators were highly correlated, and have seen sharp increases during specific crisis moments.

    ABSTRACT: The idea that financial crisis can be transmitted to other countries is relatively a new concept for economists. Although Great Depression certainly had contagious elements, this concept is taken seriously only recently with the Mexican Crisis of 1994. This crisis is followed by East Asia Crisis, and Russian Crisis which are to some degree contagious. However none of these crises was as wide spread as the 2008 crisis. Another prominent feature of the 2008 crisis is that it began in a highly developed country. It spread across countries through financial and other economic links very quickly. These facts point out that for understanding the last global crisis not only identifying the channels through which the crisis is transmitted to but also the dynamics the dispersal are important. In this study it is our aim to model the dynamics or transmission. In that regard we adopt a widely used mathematical model of epidemics.

    ABSTRACT: Regulations restricting investment by pension funds in high-risk and foreign assets may quarantine member accounts from contagious transmissions during financial crises. We analyze contagion from U.S. equity markets to emerging market autarchic assets (Colombian private pension funds) during the recent financial crises. We test for volatility contagion between financial asset returns using a multivariate GARCH (M-GARCH) framework, where the S&P 500 is the source of contagion to the autarchic asset. We find no evidence of volatility contagion during the 2007-9 crises, indicating protection due to regulated portfolio restrictions. However, there is evidence of contagion during the recent sovereign debt crisis.
