Putting these findings into perspective, the analysis of push factors versus pull factors as drivers of global capital flows in the present paper focuses on a relatively short period of time – a time span of about five years between end and end – while the discussion of push and pull factors has traditionally been made with reference to much longer cycles of capital by: Push factors are those common to all countries while pull factors are those country-specific determinants (Fratzscher, ).4 Due to the purpose of this paper, we analyze global capital flows.

As a result, the empirical literature, in its current state, does not allow us to derive general conclusions about the (differential) impact of push factors on capital.

The failure of the new wave of private capital flows to materialize in these countries as external circumstances turned increasingly favor- able validates, rather than contradicts, the simplified model used in this paper to address the issue.

Some argue that capital flows to emerging market economies increase when global financing conditions ease.

Using bilateral capital flows data from 10 advanced reporting economies—with over bilateral country pairs—for tothis paper provides strong evidence on the significance of gravity factors, including distance and bilateral trade ties, in explaining cross-border financial asset flows.

This finding is new to the capital flows literature that consider push and pull Author: Rogelio Mercado.

We also find that emerging markets that remove explicit barriers to investment and adopt stricter corporate governance practices manage to attract larger inflows in the long run, conditional on push and pull factors.
