Resoluciones de Año Nuevo para la economía mundial

STANFORD – Durante el último año, el crecimiento mundial ha sido anémico –  y el pronóstico para el año 2016 sólo prevé una leve mejora. Se debe hacer algo, en todas partes, para aumentar los ingresos y expandir las oportunidades de las personas. Estas son algunas de las resoluciones económicas que podrían traer alegría durante el nuevo año y posteriormente.

Comencemos en Europa. A pesar de la acomodación de la política monetaria por parte del Banco Central Europeo, de la fuerte depreciación del euro y las tasas de interés negativas a corto plazo, la economía europea sigue de capa caída.

En el año 2016, los líderes europeos deben dejar de esperar que la política monetaria resuelva sus problemas; y, en cambio deben ir tras la consecución de resoluciones más rápidas y más firmes para las innumerables crisis que enfrentan, mismas que van desde las crisis por el crecimiento entrelazado, las crisis bancarías, las cambiarias, y las de gobernanza hasta la crisis de refugiados que está en escalada, que representa una amenaza para la libre circulación a través de las fronteras interiores. Ellos deben ir tras el logro de reformas en el lado de la oferta, en lo fiscal, estructural, en el mercado laboral y en las regulaciones, junto con soluciones de sentido común, que se ubiquen en los primeros lugares en las agendas, para las crisis fiscales de las economías periféricas en sufrimiento y para los problemas de la de deuda de mediano plazo de las economías más fuertes.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
