Abstract

This paper attempts to provide some structure to the analysis and measurement of \"net resource transfers.\" We go about achieving this objective in two steps. First, we use standard measures of portfolio changes and balance of payments statistics to evaluate the real resource transfers associated with financial transactions. Second, we sketch ways in which this analytical framework can be used to address the economic concerns associated with the term \"net resource transfers,\" e.g., questions regarding the \"burdens\" of international debt obligations and the effects of these obligations on domestic capital formation and debt servicing.
