Monetary Stability, Exchange Rate Regimes, and Capital Controls: What Have We Learned?
The Cato Journal Vol. 28, No. 2

This article attempts to briefly summarize what we have learned through the turbulent 1990s and the relatively benign 2000s. It is obviously not intended to review the massive literature on these topics, only to distill the main policy conclusions—or at least what I think are the main policy conclusions.
