    Hutch says(6:39 PM):
    THEY ARE REALLY SHY....


    rcookie says(6:41 PM):
    THERE WAS A REPORT DONE IN 2006 ENTITLED TRANDS & IMPLICATION FOR ARTICLE VIII OBLIGATIONS WHICH ALSO SHEDS SOME LIGHT ON ARTICLE VIII METRICS AND THE IMPORTANCE TOWARD CERTAIN ECONOMIC GOALS AND INITIATIVE LIKE WTO ACCESSION.....

    rcookie says(6:42 PM):
    SO TO START OFF ...HERE IS OME INFORMATION ON THE NUMBER OF COUNTRIES ACCEPTING ARTICLE VIII OBLIGATIONS....AND REMEBBER THIS WAS 2006....10 YEARS AGO..

    rcookie says(6:44 PM):
    Since then, the proportion of Fund member countries that have notified the Fund of their acceptance of Article VIII obligations has increased sharply, but a18.1945 19481951 19541957 19601963 19661969 19721975


    rcookie says(6:44 PM):
    The proportion of countries that have notified their acceptance of Article VIII obligations rose from less than 50 percent in 1993 to almost 90 percent in 2005 (Figure 1), with a particularly large number of countries (64) notifying their acceptance between 1993 and 1996. After gradually declining, this number increased again, with seven countries notifying acceptance during 2004–2005. At present, 19 members (holding less than five percent of Fund quotas) have not yet notified the Fund of their acceptance of Article VIII obligations.14 Of these, at least half have been Fund members for more than 40 years. Four countries do not maintain any exchange measures under Article XIV but are reluctant to notify the Fund that they accept Article VIII obligations.



    rcookie says(6:45 PM):
    SO AS OF 2005 90% OF IMF MEMBERS HAD ACCEPTED ARTICLE VIII OBLIGATIONS...

    rcookie says(6:46 PM):
    NOW...THIS NEXT PIECE DISPELLS THE MINOMER THAT IN THE LOI...EXCHANGE RESTRICTIONS MUST BE ENTIRELY REMOVED IN ORDER FOR A COUNTRY TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR ARTICLE VIII


    rcookie says(6:46 PM):
    PLEASE READ....

    rcookie says(6:47 PM):
    19. A number of countries that have already notified the Fund of their acceptance of Article VIII obligations have continued to maintain existing or introduced new exchange measures. A review of the staff reports for recent Article IV consultations with these members indicates that, presently, 18 members that have so notified the Fund maintain unapproved exchange measures that would not appear to be imposed for reasons solely related to national or international security.15 Another 5 members that have acceptedArticle VIII obligations maintain approved exchange measures. The countries currently maintaining exchange measures hold about 10 percent of Fund quotas and represent a similar share of world GDP and world trade, which together with the share of countries availing themselves of Article XIV amounts to almost 20 percent of world trade.


    rcookie says(6:48 PM):
    THIS IS WHAT WE SOKE OF LAST NIGHT ON CALL....THE FUND WORKS WITH EACH COUNTRY DEPENDING ON INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES......IT IS NOT A ONE SIZE FITS ALL....ACROSS THE BOARD POLICY AND PROGRAM....

    rcookie says(6:49 PM):
    20. These exchange measures are mainly of three types: (i) limits on payments for invisible transactions (i.e., travel, medical, and educational allowances); (ii) limits on transfers from nonresident accounts; and (iii) foreign exchange budget allocation systems. Some of the exchange measures are evidenced by the existence of nonsovereign external payments arrears. Existing MCPs arise mainly from the use of special exchange rates for official transactions and the imposition of foreign exchange taxes and subsidies. The reasons generally given by countries maintaining exchange measures are discussed more fully in Section IVB.

    DAYTRADER(y)


    rcookie says(6:52 PM):
    OK ...NOW READ THIS ONE AND THINK ABOUT IRAQS ENVIRONMENT...

    rcookie says(6:52 PM):
    21. A number of members have, in the past five years, introduced exchange controls in the context of recent international initiatives to combat terrorist-financing and money-laundering. Some of these controls give rise to exchange restrictions that should be notified to the Fund pursuant to the procedures described in Decision No. 144-(52/51).16 The number of countries maintaining such restrictions has increased from 69 (37 percent of total reporting countries) in 2000 to 104 (54.5 percent of total reporting countries) in 2005.


    rcookie says(6:53 PM):
    However, there would appear to be scope for improving the reporting of such measures to the Fund. There is evidence to suggest that not all such restrictions have been notified to the Fund.17

    rcookie says(6:53 PM):

    Nomad says(7:08 PM):
    Agree


    rcookie says(7:09 PM):

    AND BRINGING SOME INFORMATION THAT EXPLAINS THEEXCHANGE RESTRICTIONS AND MCP'S

    rcookie says(7:30 PM):
    IV. ELIMINATION OF RESTRICTIONS AND MULTIPLE CURRENCY PRACTICES

    A. Macroeconomic Implications


    rcookie says(7:30 PM):
    PLEASE READ THESE CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND..

    rcookie says(7:31 PM):
    25. The negative economic effects of these exchange measures are historically well- recognized. The trade stifling effects of such measures were particularly acute when it became common practice for many countries in the 1930s to introduce multiple exchange rates to stimulate exports and discourage imports and to engage in bilateral trade and payments agreements.18

    rcookie says(7:31 PM):
    26. Such exchange measures introduce discernible economic distortions. Exchange restrictions cause undue delays in obtaining foreign exchange, and result in transactions being shifted to parallel markets where premiums can change rapidly, reaching hundredsof percentage points in extreme cases. Such disparities between parallel market rates distort decisions on consumption, production, and investment and impose heavy welfare costs by distorting import and export prices and introducing implicit taxes and subsidies that vary by type of transaction.19 Moreover, studies have shown that countries with high parallel exchange rate volatility also exhibit greater price volatility
    rcookie says(7:32 PM):

    27. Other possible distortions are more inconspicuous. Exchange restrictions could encourage rent-seeking behavior and impose government losses associated with enforcement costs and the inability to collect implicit taxes. They could lead to disintermediation and prevent the proper development of financial institutions and markets. They could encourage illegal activity and erode political capital both domestically and abroad.
    rcookie says(7:32 PM):
    28. Correspondingly, the elimination of such exchange measures, often in the context of a member’s acceptance of Article VIII obligations, could bring economic benefits. The removal of restrictions on payments and transfers for current international transactions could reduce parallel market spreads and facilitate trade. The elimination of MCPs could usher in the unification of official exchange markets and introduce a more market-based pricing of foreign exchange. Exchange rates may also exhibit more stability as the foreign exchange market deepens and develops with more transactions being conducted in the official market. The elimination of exchange restrictions could also lead to an increase in the volume of transactions through the banking system, thereby increasing the amount of intermediated funds and providing more accurate information to the authorities about the nature and volume of the flows.21 Notably, the acceptance of Article VIII obligations is often seen as a positive signal that commits members’ authorities to refrain from resorting to distortionary restrictions in the future. This in turn, could help build overall investor confidence and encourage capital flows.

    rcookie says(7:33 PM):
    ACCEPTING ARTICLE VIII BRINGS ECONOMIC BENEFITS CAN REDUCE THE PARALLEL MARKET SPREADS..

    Notably, the acceptance of Article VIII obligations is often seen as a positive signal that commits members’ authorities to refrain from resorting to distortionary restrictions in the future. This in turn, could help build overall investor confidence and encourage capital flows.


    rcookie says(7:36 PM):
    29. In practice, it is difficult to establish causality between the acceptance of Article VIII obligations and improved macroeconomic outturns. On one hand, a country’s decision to accept these obligations may be taken long after the elimination of the exchange measures. On the other hand, a member may accept these obligations without having eliminated all outstanding measures or may impose new ones after acceptance. Lack of data on the timing of the removal of exchange measures prevents the use of econometric techniques to estimate the impact of this removal on macroeconomic outturns. Moreover, in some cases exchange measures may be replaced with current account controls that have an equivalent economic impact but may not be subject to Fund approval.22 Finally, removal of exchange measures and acceptance of Article VIII obligations may be accompanied by sound macroeconomic policies in general that contribute to the often observed favorable macroeconomic outcomes after acceptance.


    rcookie says(7:36 PM):
    THATS IS WHAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT EARLIER AS TO BENEFITS...

    rcookie says(7:37 PM):
    THIS IS A BIGGIE!!!!.....READ CAREFULLY...


    rcookie says(7:37 PM):
    30. Subject to these qualifications, observed trends in selected macroeconomic variables seem to suggest that Article VIII acceptance has been associated with positive economic developments, particularly with respect to parallel market spreads. There has been a notable decline in parallel market spreads in the process of countries’ acceptance of Article VIII obligations. This observation holds across all regions, across time, and regardless of the exchange rate regime of a country at the time of such acceptance (Figure 2). Moreover, countries that accepted Article VIII obligations after removing all outstanding exchange measures seem to have experienced significantly lower parallel market spreads than countries that retained the measures. This indicates that beneficial outcomes are likely to be related to the elimination of restrictions. On average, the volatility of exchange rates with respect to the U.S. dollar has declined with the acceptance of Article VIII obligations. Similarly, inflation and interest rates have been lower and more stable, although there seems to be no clear correlation with the member’s acceptance of Article VIII obligations.23


    rcookie says(7:38 PM):
    ZANYONE THINK THATS A GOOD REASON AND OUTCOME FOR ACCEPTING ARTICLE VIII OBLIGATIONS....GIVEN THEIR EXISTING MARKET CHALLENGES....
