Survivre aux grands flux de capitaux

Malgré de récentes turbulences financières sur les marchés, la dynamique de fond de l’économie mondiale reste essentiellement inchangée. La grande question n’est pas de gérer une baisse, mais plutôt comment maintenir le boom mondial actuel et les flux de capitaux qui l’accompagnent. Avec la croissance mondiale rapide que l’on attend, il ne sera possible de financer les excellentes opportunités d’investissements qui se présenteront que si les capitaux continuent d’entrer dans des pays capables de les utiliser de façon productive.

La bonne nouvelle est que certains pays détiennent d’importantes économies qu’ils désirent investir dans d’autres pays, et qu’ils ne se laissent pas décourager par des fluctuations de marché à court terme. En fait, nos projections montrent que les flux de capitaux bruts (ou totaux) vers les marchés émergents vont augmenter, passant de 400-500 milliards de $US juste avant la crise asiatique de 1997 à 800-900 milliards en 2007 et 2008. Ces flux devraient atteindre 1 trillion de dollars dans un avenir proche.

En analysant les phénomènes du passé, il est clair qu’en 1997-98, la faiblesse des régulations bancaires et des gouvernances d’entreprises a aggravé la profondeur de la contraction économique qui a suivi “l’arrêt soudain” des flux de capitaux. Mais quelles conséquences sur la manière dont les pays à revenus bas et moyens devraient désormais régler leurs politiques de comptes de capitaux dans le débordement actuel ?

    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.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. 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.
