    Assessing co-ordinated Asian exchange rate regimes
    (University College Dublin. School of Business. Centre for Financial Markets, 2010-01) ;
    This study assesses prospective Asian exchange rate regimes and finds short- and longrun currency dynamics more conducive to the introduction of a common peg based on a basket of the European euro, the United States dollar and the Japanese yen than the alternative of a United States dollar peg exchange rate regime. Exchange rate systems of 3- 4- and 5- Asian currencies are considered and the dynamics in a set of four European currencies prior to the introduction of the Euro provides benchmark evidence. The evidence for an Asian basket peg exchange rate regime is strengthened when, unlike prior studies, estimates of the long-run parameters account for time-varying volatility effects.

    Assessing co-ordinated Asian exchange rate regimes
    (University College Dublin. School of Business. Centre for Financial Markets, 2007-08) ;
    This study assesses alternative Asian exchange rate regimes and finds short- and long-run currency dynamics more conducive to the possibility of introducing a common peg based on a basket of the European euro, the United States dollar and the Japanese yen than the alternative of re-introducing a United States dollar peg exchange rate regime. Exchange rate systems of 3- 4- and 5- Asian currencies are examined and the dynamics in a set of 4 European currencies prior to the introduction of the Euro provides benchmark evidence. The evidence for an Asian basket peg regime is strengthened when, unlike in prior studies, the long-run parameters are estimated while accounting for generalised autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity effects.

    Dynamics of equity market integration in Europe : impact of political-economy events
    (University College Dublin. School of Business. Centre for Financial Markets, 2006-06) ; ;
    Unlike most prior literature in finance and economics, this paper focuses on events in the political economy and examines the integration of European equity markets over the 1988 through 2002 period using three innovative techniques that assesses how the level of integration in equity price levels changes over time. The results show that notwithstanding the rising interdependencies between the European and US equity market until the mid-1990s, the long run integrative relationships governing the European markets began to strengthen only in the late 1990s and in particular since 1997. This evidence suggests that despite several years of political willingness by European leaders to integrate economies, it was not until the Treaty of Amsterdam and the establishment of the European Central Bank that the markets deemed that European integration would in fact occur.
