Pardee Task Force Reports Translated into Chinese and Spanish

For the first time, a publication of the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future is available in Chinese. Global Capital Controls Chinese

The 2012 Pardee Center Task Force Report, Regulating Global Capital Flows for Long-Run Development is now available electronically in Chinese, thanks to a translation produced by the Institute of World Economics and Politics (IWEP), Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS). Selected chapters of the report also were published in March as a special section in the Chinese journal, International Economic Review.

Meanwhile, the Center for the Study of State and Society (CEDES) in Argentina has produced a Spanish translation of the March 2013 Pardee Center Task Force report titled Capital Account Regulations and the Trading System: A Compatibility Review. CEDES was a co-sponsor and host of the June 2012 workshop at which initial drafts of the papers that make up the report were presented. CEDES also oversaw the translation of the Spanish version of the March 2012 report.

Both reports are the products of the Pardee Center Task Force on Regulating Global Capital Flows for Long-Run Development, which was co-chaired by Pardee Faculty Fellow Kevin P. Gallagher, along with Jose Antonio Ocampo and Stephany Griffith-Jones of the Institute for Policy Dialogue at Columbia University. The Task Force is part of the Global Economic Governance Initiative, led by Prof. Gallagher, and sponsored jointly by the Pardee Center and Boston University’s Center for Finance, Law and Policy.

Hard copies and downloadable PDFs of the English-language version of both reports are available from the Pardee Center. Both the Chinese and Spanish versions are available in electronic format only. A Portuguese translation of the March 2013 Taks Force Report on capital accounts and the trading system is expected to be published later this year.
