Capitais internacionais: complementares ou substitutos?
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a theoretical and empirical analysis of the substitutability of international private capital flows. Both univariate and multivariate investigations of the capital movements related to the Brazilian economy during the period 1991-1998 are conducted. Contrary to other studies, we find an equilibrium relationship linking the flows. We also find support for the complementarity hypothesis in the long term and for the substitutability hypothesis in the short term.
