Book Description

The fifth edition of Balance of Payments Manual, issued in 1993, presents revised and updated standards for concepts, definitions, classifications, and conventions for compilation of balance of payments and international investment position statistics that reflect the widespread changes that have taken place in international transactions since the fouth edition was published in 1977. As the international standard, the Manual serves as a guide for IMF member countries that regularly report balance of payments data to the IMF. The Manual contains significantly expanded and restructured coverage of financial flows and stocks and international transactions in services. Harmonization with the System of National Accounts and other IMF statistical systems is also greatly increased. See also companion volumes, the Balance of Payments Compilation Guide and the Balance of Payments Textbook.

4Always near to hand
By Statistical Zero
This is an impressive manual that brings forward the harmonization of international statistical standards a great deal, while bringing in a link between transactions and balance sheets.

Paragraph 471 is hard going and the section on "attribution of production" in Chapter IV lacks a foundation in institutional units. The importance of "other flows" as important economic events in their own right could be emphasized more. I am looking forward to the next edition.

5the best balance of payments manual yet
By statistical hero
Concise, clear, informative. Every balance of payments compiler or user should have this. It makes a great collection on the book shelf together with the balance of payments compilation guide and the equally interesting balance of payments textbook.
