Date: February 8, 1994
Creator: Reifman, Alfred
Description: The rise of the multinational corporation and the increased flow of capital across national borders have raised anew the question of how to treat foreign direct investment, both inward and outward.

Date: April 23, 1998
Creator: Cronin, Richard P
Description: The principal focus of this report is on the foreign policy ramifications of the Asian financial crisis and U.S. options for addressing them.

It also addresses the implications of the crisis for such U.S. interests as regional stability and the prevention of conflict, trade liberalization, and U.S. regional and global leadership, and discusses the principal factors that could influence the duration and severity of the crisis. A final section considers options for Congress in the context of various criticisms of the IMF’s stabilization programs and the operations of the Fund itself.

The Daiwa Bank Problems: Background and Policy Issues

The Daiwa Bank Problems: Background and Policy Issues

Date: November 30, 1995
Creator: Nanto, Dick K; Jackson, William D & Wells, F. Jean
Description: On November 2, 1995, U.S. banking authorities ordered the Daiwa Bank to close its banking operations in the United States, and a 24-count criminal indictment was issued against it. These actions stem from the bank's admission that Toshihide Iguchi, a rogue trader at its New York branch office, had incurred $1.1 billion in losses over eleven years from trading U.S. Treasury securities and that Daiwa managers had "directed that those losses be concealed" from U.S. regulators.
