This study examines the effects of capital account restrictions on capital flows in nine Asian economies over the period 1995-2005 using panel regressions with fixed effects. The results show that capital controls significantly affect capital flows when such flows are disaggregated by asset type and direction of flow. Tests for the presence of possible asymmetric effects, substitution effects, and endogeneity of capital controls are conducted.
