Transcript

  • 1. The External Wealth of Nations Mark II Revised and Extended Estimates of Foreign Assets and Liabilities, 1970-2004 Philip R. Lane IIIS, Trinity College Dublin and CEPR Gian Maria Milesi-Ferretti IMF, Research Department and CEPR
  • 2. Dataset on 145 countries’ external position (assets and liabilities)
    • Extends and improves the dataset in Lane and Milesi-Ferretti (JIE 2001)
    • From 67 countries to 145 countries (nearly universal coverage)
    • Coverage extended to 1970-2004
    • Much larger availability of stock estimates from national authorities
  • 3. Dataset “outputs”
    • External assets
      • Portfolio equity
      • Foreign direct investment
      • Debt assets
        • Portfolio debt (for some countries/periods)
        • Other investment assets (for some countries/periods)
      • Reserve assets (net of gold)
      • Financial derivatives (limited coverage)
  • 4. Dataset “outputs” (II)
    • External liabilities
      • Portfolio equity
      • Foreign direct investment
      • Debt liabilities
        • Portfolio debt (for some countries/periods)
        • Other investment liabilities (for some countries/periods)
      • Financial derivatives ( limited coverage)
  • 5. Data inputs
    • International Investment Positions (when reported)
    • Balance of payments flows
    • World Bank’s Global Development Finance (external debt)
    • FDI stocks and flows from UNCTAD
    • Stock of portfolio equity holdings in the US and by US residents (Warnock)
    • CPIS Portfolio Survey
    • BIS locational banking statistics
    • National sources
    • Historical data from Sinn (1990)
    • IMF desks
    • etc....
  • 6. Estimation methods
    • Eclectic...
    • Stock data, complemented by cumulative capital flows with valuation adjustments
      • For portfolio equity, valuation reflects stock market prices
      • For debt, its currency composition
      • For FDI, international relative prices
  • 7. Caveats
    • Substantial degree of uncertainty for estimates
    • Some offshore centers missing
    • Large world NFA discrepancy
  • 8. A sampling of results
    • The world NFA discrepancy
    • Trends in international financial integration
    • Trends in net external positions
    • Much more in the paper (and the data) on
      • Gross positions (international financial integration)
      • Portfolio composition (equity, FDI, debt)
      • Longer-term trends
  • 9. The problem of underreporting
    • The world runs a current account deficit....
    • ...and has been doing so for a while.....
    • ...and has hence accumulated net external liabilities
  • 10. World liabilities (share of world GDP)
  • 11. What do we know about the missing money?
    • Primarily in the categories
      • Debt instruments
      • Portfolio equity
  • 12. What do we know about the missing money?
  • 13. Can we say something about the equity and debt discrepancies?
    • For portfolio equity, yes.
    • Use data from
      • CPIS
      • Liability surveys
        • United States
        • Ireland
      • Reported aggregate portfolio equity liabilities
  • 14. Evidence on the portfolio equity discrepancy
    • At end-2003,
      • Total assets=US$7.2 trillion
      • Total liabilities=US$8.3 trillion
    • Compare reported equity liabilities with those derived from other countries’ reported holdings in the country
  • 15. Results
  • 16. Can we learn something more from the US and Irish surveys?
  • 17. Bottom line
    • “Missing money” likely held in financial centers....
    • ...but of course difficult to impute ultimate ownership...
  • 18. Evidence on international financial integration
    • Rapid growth in external assets and liabilities
      • Particularly strong since the mid-1990s
      • Particularly strong for advanced economies
    • Increased importance of FDI and portfolio equity. For emerging markets, also
      • Big reduction in debt to export ratio
      • Large increase in reserves
  • 19. Stylized facts I . International financial integration (assets+liabilities/GDP)
  • 20. Stylized facts (II) II . International financial and trade integration (assets+liabilities/exports+imports)
  • 21. I nternational equity integration (FDI+portfolio equity) Assets+liabilities/GDP
  • 22. External capital structure Emerging and developing countries
  • 23. A perspective on net external positions
    • Where did we stand at end-2004?
      • Industrial countries
      • Developing countries and emerging markets
    • What are the “global” trends along the time series dimension?
    • Some regional evidence on NFA during the past decade
  • 24. Net foreign assets and GDP per capita, 2004
  • 25. Net foreign assets and GDP per capita, 2004 (emerging and developing economies)
  • 26. Net foreign assets, broad country groups (pct of GDP)
  • 27. NFA (pct of world GDP)
  • 28. NFA/GDP: 1996 and 2004
  • 29. NFA/GDP: 1996 and 2004
  • 30. NFA/GDP: 1996 and 2004
  • 31. Concluding remarks
    • Comprehensive and up-to-date dataset
    • Key for research on
      • International financial integration
      • Risk sharing
      • Dynamics of global imbalances
    • New evidence on “NFA discrepancy”
    • New evidence on global trends in NFA and financial integration
