Bank of slovenia adjustment policy to surges in capital flows
AbstractThe article presents an empirically tested assessment of the Bank of Slovenia (BS), national central bank, adjustment policy to surges in capital flows during the last decade. Exchange rate appreciation, undeveloped banking sector, immoderate money market oscillation, unstable economic trends (all phenomena that can also be found in other transition countries) are just some of the detrimental effects that can be provoked by surges in capital flows if the national economy is faced with some fundamental sectoral deficiencies. Empirical results indicated that BS quite successfully mitigated listed effects of excessive foreign currency inflows during the last decade. With the suitable combination of direct and indirect adjustment methods, BS succeeded in preventing, still vulnerable Slovenian economy from a major form of financial crisis and stronger nominal tolar appreciation (this was not the case in some other countries like Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Croatia) although there was some real appreciation.
