These advantages include high power density of 15KW in 3U, precision readback of output current and voltage, output trigger signals as well as the ability to create complex DC transient waveforms to test device behavior for spikes, drops, and other voltage deviations. The 62000H Series includes 14 different models ranging from 5KW to 15KW, with current range up to 375A and voltage range up to 1000V. The 62000H can easily parallel up to ten units capable of 150KW with current sharing for bulk power applications, for example, battery bank simulation of 450V/150A/67.5KW for electric vehicle and...
The Recent Credit Crunch: The Neglected Dimensions ONVENTIONAL WISDOM HAS IT THAT a credit crunch occurred in the U.S. economy in 1990-92, causing, or at least contributing to, the latest recession and jeopardizing the strength of the recovery. Much has been written about the causes and consequences of the credit crunch and about remedies for it? While the term is widely used, the precise definition of a credit crunch is not widely agreed upon. Credit crunches have in common, however, a slowing in the growth of—or an outright decline in—the quantity of credit outstanding, especially business loans at commercial banks. Analysts who espouse the credit crunch theory typically have a more specific definition in mind. In their view, a credit crunch arises from a reduction in the supply of credit. Accordingly, this article uses the term “credit crunch” to refer only to a reduction in the supply of credit. It addresses the credit crunch hypothesis by examining the existence and implications of competing potential sources of a decline in credit, including the recent ‘The Chairman of the Federal Reserve System, Alan Greenspan, has expressed concern over the slowing in credit growth and the extent to which it was induced by bank regulators’ attempts to raise bank capital. See Greenspan (1991). Other Federal Reserve officials who have expressed concern over the credit crunch during this period include LaWare (1991), Forrestal (1991) and Syron (1991). Concern over a potential global credit crunch has been raised by the Bank for International Settlements (1991) and Japan’s Economic Planning Agency [see Reuters (1991a)1. Concern for a national crunch has also surfaced in France [see Reuters (1991b)1. Also see O’Brien and Browne (1992).

During the past year and a half, the world economy has experienced its severest recession since the 1930s (World Bank 2009; IMF 2009a). The crisis has led to the collapse, Government bail-out or partial nationalisation of major financial institutions in the US and Europe; to major programmes of fiscal and monetary reform; and to support for businesses and homeowners in the UK and elsewhere (HM Treasury 2009; IMF 2009b). There are emerging signs that the worst may be over, although recovery is likely to be slow (IMF 2009c). Most advanced economies have experienced falling output, although the crisis has been particularly keenly felt in the UK (Weale 2009) because of the degree of dependence on the hard-hit financial services sector and the high level of household indebtedness (e.g. OECD 2009; Simpson 2009). The UK has experienced falling Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for five consecutive quarters (ONS 2009a) and has undergone a decline in output equivalent to an annual drop of 5.5 per cent, a greater fall than the 3.5 per cent predicted by the Chancellor for 2009 (HM Treasury 2009). Other macroeconomic indicators reflect the decline in business activity. Unemployment has risen from 1.73 to 2.47 millions (7.9 per cent of the working age population) in the year to July 2009, Bank of England interest rate remains at a record low of 0.5 per cent, and the Retail Price Inflation index is currently negative, standing at -1.3 per cent. Some suggest the UK recession has finally ...
T his publication is based on work carried out at the Research Department of the Inter-American Development Bank primarily in the course of 2007 and 2008. The project was initiated in the last quarter of 2006 at the suggestion of Guillermo Calvo. While at that time the world was enjoying a phase of financial stability with no end in sight, Guillermo encouraged us to undertake this task under the premise that it is often the case that fragilities are both generated and easily missed in good times, frequently leaving countries without well-thought-out crisis management strategies when the next systemic crisis comes by. Just like firemen practice for the next fire, countries can benefit from crisis“firedrills,” standing ready with the best available tools at hand. The fruit of this research becomes available at a time when the world is muddling through the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The hope is that this volume will serve as a useful reference for policymakers and academics in their quest for appropriate policy responses to a type of financial crisis whose trigger is not based on domestic policy failings, but rather on supply shocks stemming from imperfections in world capital markets. The experiences documented in this book are based on the policy responses to the last international credit crunch: the sudden stops in capital flows of 1997/1998 that beset much of Latin America as well as many other emerging markets. A decade after the systemic sudden stops of the 1990s, it is a good time to make an assessment of what has been learned, as countries have experimented widely in terms of responses to sudden stops, providing a rich array of cases that offer useful policy lessons.
