New Risks and Opportunities Take Shape
July marks the 20th anniversary of the start of the Asian Financial Crisis. The flotation of the Thai baht in July 1997 set in motion a series of external and banking shocks that engulfed the region and spread to emerging markets worldwide. In the run-up to the crisis, obvious dangers were overlooked.
Are today's risks similarly being disregarded? At the same time, are there new opportunities surfacing?
