Perspectivas de la Economía Mundial Abril de 2012: Reanudación del crecimiento, peligros persistentes

by International Monetary Fund

The April 2012 edition of the World Economic Outlook assesses the prospects for the global economy, which has gradually strengthened after a major setback during 2011. the threat of a sharp global slowdown eased by improved activity in the United States and better policies in the euro area in response to the deepening crisis there. Weak recovery will likely resume in the major advanced economies, and activity is expected to remain relatively solid in most emerging and developing economies. However, recent improvements are very fragile. Policymakers must calibrate policies to support growth in the near term and must implement fundamental changes to achieve healthy growth in the medium term. Chapter 3 examines how policies directed at real estate markets can accelerate the improvement of household balance sheets and thus support otherwise anemic consumption. Countries that have adopted such policies have seen major benefits. In general, however, fears about moral hazard have stood in the way of progress. Chapter 4 examines how swings in commodity prices affect commodity exporting economies. Many emerging and developing economies have had nearly a decade of good growth, in part because of rapid credit growth or high commodity prices. However, commodity prices are unlikely to continue growing at such an elevated pace, and fiscal and other policies may need to be adapted to lower potential output growth.

Perspectivas de la economía mundial Abril de 2014: La recuperación se afianza, pero sigue siendo despareja

by International Monetary Fund

The world economy continues its slow recovery from the global financial crisis, but the main impetus for growth now lies with the advanced economies. The April 2014 WEO examines the causes and implications of recent trends, including increased financial volatility in emerging market economies, lower-than-expected inflation in advanced economies, and the withdrawal of monetary accommodation. It examines the policy priorities for both advanced economies and emerging market developing economies. The report includes a chapter that analyzes the causes of worldwide decreases in real interest rates since the 1980s and another chapter that examines factors behind the fluctuations in emerging market economies' growth, including the role of China.

Perspectivas de la Economía Mundial, Octubre de 2013: Transiciones y tensiones

by International Monetary Fund

El crecimiento mundial avanza a marcha lenta, y los factores que impulsan la actividad están cambiando. Esta dinámica plantea nuevos desafíos de política económica. En las economías avanzadas se ha reanudado el crecimiento, pero es necesario seguir reparando el sector financiero, llevar adelante la consolidación fiscal y estimular el crecimiento del empleo. Las economías de mercados emergentes se enfrentan al doble desafío de una desaceleración del crecimiento y un endurecimiento de las condiciones financieras mundiales. En esta edición de Perspectivas de la economía mundial se examinan los posibles efectos de contagio derivados de estos procesos de transición y las respuestas de política económica que resultan apropiadas. En el capítulo 3 se analiza de qué manera los shocks financieros y de política, las variaciones sorpresivas del crecimiento y otros factores influyen en los comovimientos del producto. En el capítulo 4 se evalúa por qué algunas economías de mercados emergentes lograron evitar el ciclo clásico de auge y caída ante la volatilidad de los flujos de capitales durante la crisis financiera mundial.

Perspectivas económicas: Las Américas Desafíos crecientes, Abril 14

by International Monetary Fund

The five Regional Economic Outlooks published biannually by the IMF cover Asia and Pacific, Europe, the Middle East and Central Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and the Western Hemisphere. In each volume, recent economic developments and prospects for the region are discussed as a whole, as well as for specific countries. The reports include key data for countries in the region. Each report focuses on policy developments that have affected economic performance in the region, and discusses key challenges faced by policymakers. The near-term outlook, key risks, and their related policy challenges are analyzed throughout the reports, and current issues are explored, such as when and how to withdraw public interventions in financial systems globally while maintaining a still-fragile economic recovery. These indispensable surveys are the product of comprehensive intradepartmental reviews of economic developments that draw primarily on information the IMF staff gathers through consultation with member countries.

Perspectives économiques régionales: Afrique subsaharienne, October 2008

by International Monetary Fund

Sub-Saharan Africa's prospects have deteriorated somewhat and the risks have increased, according to this report. Growth in the region is projected to dip to 6 percent in 2008 and 2009. The fall is due mainly to the global food and fuel price shock, which has weighed particularly on growth in oil-importing countries, and to the global financial market turmoil, which has slowed global growth and demand for Africa's exports. Inflation is expected to rise to 12 percent in 2008, mainly on account of the food and fuel price shock. As a result of rising prices, particularly of food, poverty may well be on the increase in 2008. In 2009, inflation should ease to 10 percent, helped by recent commodity price declines. There are significant risks to the outlook related to a potentially deeper and longer period of global financial turmoil and resulting slowdown in global activity, and substantial uncertainty concerning commodity prices.
