This is a revised and extended version of a paper with the same title. I did much of the work for this version as a Peter Kenen IES Fellow at Princeton, whose hospitality and generosity is hereby acknowledged with thanks. I am also indebted to Luis Oganes, Nouriel Roubini, Alfredo Thorne, and Andrés Velasco for useful discussions, and to participants of seminars at Pompeu Fabra, Cornell, Columbia, Duke, Princeton, Yale, the Atlanta Fed, the NY Fed, and the LACEA meetings for comments and suggestions. Of course, the views, errors, and shortcomings here are my sole responsibility.
