Rebalancing Growth in Asia: Economic Dimensions for China

by International Monetary Fund

With external demand for products decreased due to the recent economic crisis, the main way for Asian countries to maintain their rate of economic growth is to increase internal consumption. Focusing in particular on China, where private consumption makes up the smallest percentage of gross domestic product (GDP), this volume explores ways of increasing household consumption along with the possible employment consequences. Levels of personal and corporate saving are also considered, along with investment patterns. To better illustrate the data, tables and graphs regularly appear. The authors and editors all hold various positions at the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)

Regional Economic Outlook, April 2012: Asia and Pacific - Managing Spillovers and Advancing Economic Rebalancing

by International Monetary Fund

Barring the realization of downside risks to the global economy, growth in the Asia and the Pacific region is expected to gain momentum over the course of 2012, according to this report, and now projected at 6 percent in 2012, rising to about 6½percent in 2013. Stronger economic and policy fundamentals have helped buffer the region's economies against the global financial crisis, by limiting adverse financial market spillovers and ameliorating the impact of deleveraging by European banks, but a sharp fall in exports to advanced economies and a reversal of foreign capital flows would have a severe impact on the region. the region's policymakers now face the difficult task of calibrating the amount of insurance needed to support stable, noninflationary growth. Some Asian and Pacific economies can afford to lengthen the pause in the normalization of their macroeconomic policies that was initiated when the global recovery stalled late in 2011;others may need a faster return to more neutral policy stances. Similarly, the pace of fiscal consolidation should be calibrated to country-specific circumstances. Additional chapters in the report discuss whether China is rebalancing and the particular challenges facing Asian low-income and small island economies.

Regional Economic Outlook: Asia and Pacific (October 2007) (EPub)

by International Monetary Fund

Economic developments in Asia have been positive so far in 2007. Growth has been stronger (and in many cases more balanced) than expected across much of the region, again led by China and India, and inflation pressures remain largely contained. Moreover, Asia weathered the recent financial turbulence relatively well. The outlook is favorable, with growth expected to decline only modestly in 2008 as foreign demand for Asia's exports slows. The main risk for the region is a sharper-than-expected global slowdown.

Regional Economic Outlook: Asia and Pacific (September 2006) (EPub)

by International Monetary Fund

The September 2006 report analyzes recent developments, examines the impact of the recent market correction, and assesses potential for capital inflows and equity markets, as well as examining private consumption and trends in inequality. Chapters address financial developments in emerging Asia; the main macroeconomic issues facing policymakers; Asia's external surpluses; Asia's investment decline, and rebalancing growth in China.

Regional Economic Outlook: Europe, May 2009, Addressing the Crisis (EPub)

by International Monetary Fund

Europe is in a deep recession. Adverse feedback between the financial and real sectors and across borders is likely to delay the recovery and create downside risks. Unprecedented policies have been undertaken to address the crisis-but are they likely to be successful and sufficiently coordinated for a tightly integrated region? To restore trust and confidence in financial markets, additional and forceful action will be essential. Maintaining fiscal support should help soften the downturn, in particular if sustainability is supported by solid medium-term strategies and fiscal frameworks. To be effective, these policies require coordination across advanced and emerging economies. The report's analytical work underpins the link between fiscal sustainability, coordination, and effectiveness, and stresses that emerging markets have been affected differently by the crisis, with the quality of policies and external vulnerabilities being key factors.

Regional Economic Outlook: Europe Navigating Stormy Waters

by International Monetary Fund

The September 2011 survey projects continued growth in Europe during 2012 and a healthy decline in inflation, and demonstrates how sound macroeconomic policies and growth-enhancing structural reforms raise a country's growth potential by fostering balanced growth and raising TFP growth. The biannual report also examines the economic and financial ties between Eastern Europe and Western Europe, and quantifies how shocks originating in Western Europe affect economic developments in Eastern European countries.

Regional Economic Outlook: Middle East and Central Asia, May 2009 (EPub)

by International Monetary Fund

The global crisis is now affecting the countries in the Middle East and Central Asia region, and economic and financial vulnerabilities are rising. In the Middle East and North Africa, good economic fundamentals, appropriate policy responses, and sizable currency reserves are helping mitigate the impact of the shock. In the Caucasus and Central Asia, lower commodity prices and adverse economic developments in Russia have hit hard. The report notes that countries should prepare for the contingency of a prolonged global slowdown by supporting domestic demand for a longer period and strengthening financial systems further. In some countries with rising unemployment, it will be important to target government resources and policies on protecting the poor; in others, increased donor support will be necessary to maintain needed economic development.
