Las nuevas ideas del G-20 sobre la economía mundial

NUEVA YORK – La cumbre del G-20 en Seúl fue notable por la influencia política cada vez mayor de los países con economías en ascenso. No sólo fue uno de ellos el anfitrión, sino que, además, ejercieron una mayor influencia.

En dos sectores decisivos –la macroeconomía y el desarrollo económico mundial–, prevaleció la opinión de las economías en desarrollo y de la cumbre resultó una propuesta excelente de vincular los dos programas –el de la macroeconomía y del desarrollo–, que se aplicará en 2011.

Un rasgo fundamental de la economía mundial actual es el de que funciona con dos velocidades. Los Estados Unidos y gran parte de Europa siguen empantanados con las secuelas de la crisis financiera que estalló en el otoño de 2008, con un elevado desempleo, un crecimiento económico lento y continuos problemas en el sector bancario. Sin embargo, los mercados en ascenso han superado en general la crisis.

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.
