Abstract

Capital account liberalization is a complex process and its success requires proper sequencing and coordination with macroeconomic and other policies. Reflecting varying approaches and initial conditions, some countries have been able to liberalize their capital accounts while successfully maintaining financial sector stability, whereas other countries have experienced financial crises. In this paper, we analyze the impact of liberalization process, foreign currency, inflation and interest rate on Romanian financial account during April 2005- April 2008, respectively April 2005- January 2011. We find that liberalization process had a negative impact on financial account in both samples. Foreign currency has a negative impact in the first sample and positive in the second sample, while the other variables have a positive impact in both samples.
