The Danger of Relocation of Money: Some Examples from History
KTH, School of Architecture and the Built Environment (ABE), Centres, Centre for Banking and Finance, Cefin.

Abstract [en]

Much has been written about the role of domestic debt expansion preceding and causing financial crises but less about the characteristics of cross-border debt expansion. In this article, three cases of massive relocation of capital – cross-border or cross-region - have been examined: Malmö diskont in the early 19th century, Credit-Anstalt in the 1930s and Latin America in the 1970s and 1980s. Based on this examination, certain characteristics of such relocation have preliminarily been identified: an institutional change preceded the glut (defined on page 2) of money in the originating market, cross-border capital is easily available but volatile, the relocation of capital is followed by mismanagement and risky investments, small countries or markets are vulnerable to cross-border money and lastly; complacency by authorities, excessive confidence, lack of transparency tend to increase the size of relocation. Each of these findings merits a closer examination to be incorporated in and contribute to the general theories concerning the causes of financial crises.
