Le prossime mosse della Cina per la crescita

PECHINO – I dati ufficiali più recenti indicano chiaramente che l’economia cinese è in affanno, e secondo le previsioni la crescita annua del Pil raggiungerà all’incirca il 7,8% nel 2012. Questo risultato non sorprende.

Per frenare l’aumento dei prezzi delle case e prevenire l’impatto inflazionistico delle politiche fiscali e monetarie fortemente espansive attuate durante la crisi finanziaria globale, le autorità monetarie cinesi hanno iniziato a inasprire le condizioni finanziarie nel gennaio del 2010.

La stretta finanziaria, le misure amministrative introdotte da vari governi locali per contenere il rialzo del mercato immobiliare e l’effetto declino del pacchetto governativo di stimolo da 4mila miliardi di yen (642,3 miliardi di dollari) si sono trasformati in un graduale rallentamento economico. Mentre l’inflazione avrebbe dovuto attenuarsi all’inizio del 2011, l’aumento dei prezzi dei generi alimentari e delle materie prime ha superato le aspettative. La crescita annua dell’indice dei prezzi al consumo ha raggiunto un picco del 6,5% nel luglio del 2011.

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.
