Were the capital market liberalized first, the distortions in the real side of the economy would send signals that might direct investment into precisely those areas that were scheduled for contraction as part of the longer-term restructuring of the economy.

For example, "balance of payments adjustment" refers to some process or means for achieving an improvement in the external accounts of a country. It is not a goal as such. Similarly, altering relative prices may be a mechanism for changing the pattern of production and consumption. But it is the change in the intersectoral structure of the economy that is the actual target of the policy. This confusion of mechanisms with targets may arise in the context of structural adjustment lending, a matter to which we return in a later section of this chapter.
