This paper focuses on Eastern Europe’s experience before and during the 2007-2009 crisis to discuss emerging countries’ options to address global liquidity cycles. It argues that sequencing strategies envisaging capital controls as last-resort option can have perverse effects where banks play multiple roles: from intermediaries of capital inflows to directly accessing global interbank markets to fund foreign-currency lending. A strategy combining sterilizations at long-term maturities with the creation of narrow banks to support sovereign debt dynamics and caps on foreign-currency exposure would contain banks’ involvement in carry trades, curb innovations seeking to circumvent capital controls and restore policy autonomy.
