Economic professionals specializing in country risk or international portfolio analysis face a daunting challenge when called on to assess the volatility of capital flows and risk pricing associated with the more than thirty emerging market countries. One of the reasons is that most analytic frameworks in use do not adequately consider the determinants of the availability of capital, confining themselves instead to the policy and performance characteristics of the emerging markets themselves. Capital flows are overwhelmingly an industrial-country game, however, and assessing what emerging markets get and can sustain requires a broad toolkit, including no less than an understanding of the global economy.(n1)
