Jak se vyvarovat globální recesi se dvěma propady

NEW YORK – Mezi tvůrci globálních politik probíhá debata o tom, kdy a jak rychle ustoupit od rázné měnové a fiskální stimulace, která zabránila proměně Velké recese let 2008-2009 v novou Velkou hospodářskou krizi. Německo a Evropská centrální banka agresivně tlačí na brzké fiskální uskrovnění; Spojené státy se obávají rizik předčasné fiskální konsolidace.

Ve skutečnosti jsou tvůrci politik ztraceni, když budou jednat tak i onak. Jestliže měnovou a fiskální stimulaci zruší příliš brzy, zatímco soukromá poptávka zůstává chatrná, hrozí riziko propadu zpět do recese a deflace. Třebaže fiskální uskrovnění může být v některých zemích s rozsáhlými schodky a dluhy nezbytné, zvyšování daní a osekávání vládních výdajů může zjitřit recesi a deflaci.

Na druhou stranu, budou-li tvůrci politik stimul zachovávat příliš dlouho, překotné fiskální deficity by mohly vést ke svrchovaným dluhovým krizím (už teď trhy trestají fiskálně nedisciplinované země většími suverénními rozpětími). Anebo pokud se schodky monetizují, vysoká inflace může vyšroubovat dlouhodobé úrokové sazby a opět zadusit ekonomické oživení.

    China in the Lead?

    For four decades, China has achieved unprecedented economic growth under a centralized, authoritarian political system, far outpacing growth in the Western liberal democracies. So, is Chinese President Xi Jinping right to double down on authoritarianism, and is the “China model” truly a viable rival to Western-style democratic capitalism?

    Whither the Multilateral Trading System?

    The global economy today is dominated by three major players – China, the EU, and the US – with roughly equal trading volumes and limited incentive to fight for the rules-based global trading system. With cooperation unlikely, the world should prepare itself for the erosion of the World Trade Organization.

    The Globalization of Our Discontent

    Globalization, which was supposed to benefit developed and developing countries alike, is now reviled almost everywhere, as the political backlash in Europe and the US has shown. The challenge is to minimize the risk that the backlash will intensify, and that starts by understanding – and avoiding – past mistakes.

    A Better British Story

    Despite all of the doom and gloom over the United Kingdom's impending withdrawal from the European Union, key manufacturing indicators are at their highest levels in four years, and the mood for investment may be improving. While parts of the UK are certainly weakening economically, others may finally be overcoming longstanding challenges.

    The UK’s Multilateral Trade Future

    With Brexit looming, the UK has no choice but to redesign its future trading relationships. As a major producer of sophisticated components, its long-term trade strategy should focus on gaining deep and unfettered access to integrated cross-border supply chains – and that means adopting a multilateral approach.
