Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)


This chapter has two main objectives. On the one hand, it proposes a brief investigation and overview of emerging markets within the previous and actual financial crises. On the other hand, this chapter brings a comprehensive discussion on the contagion issue among emerging markets as well as between emerging and developed markets. The empirical investigation of the links between financial crisis and contagion effects enables not only a better understanding of the dynamics of emerging stock prices, but also the assessment of the potential market-deepening linkages.
