Western Hemisphere Rebuilding Strength and Flexibility

by International Monetary Fund

Growth in much of Latin America remains solid, although it slowed during the second half of 2011 as result of the combined effects of policy tightening and global uncertainties. Under our baseline, we expect growth in Latin America and the Caribbean to moderate to about 3¾percent in 2012, from about 4½last year. for many countries, high commodity prices and easy external financing conditions will provide tailwinds. for others, weak growth in the United States and other advanced-country partners, or homegrown fiscal problems, will hold back activity. This edition of the Regional Economic Outlook: Western Hemisphere elaborates on three key themes. First, the global economic environment is somewhat better than in late 2011, but remains risky as renewed tensions from Europe and the likelihood of an oil price shock cannot be discarded. Second, external conditions will remain stimulative for much of Latin America: the double tailwinds of easy external finance and high commodity prices are likely to persist for a while, though not forever. and third, this environment creates opportunities for Latin America-opportunities to build on the resilience and flexibility that has served it so well during the global crisis of 2008-09. This edition also expands on these themes through analytical features on regional spillovers, the growth effects of global financial shocks, and housing and mortgage markets in the region.

World Economic and Financial Surveys Global Financial Stability Report

by International Monetary Fund

"With financial markets worldwide facing growing turmoil, internationally coherent and decisive policy measures will be required to restore confidence in the global financial system. Failure to do so could usher in a period in which the ongoing deleveraging process becomes increasingly disorderly and costly for the real economy. In any case, the process of restoring an orderly system will be challenging, as a significant deleveraging is both necessary and inevitable. It is against this challenging and still evolving backdrop that the Global Financial Stability Report (GFSR) frames the recent events to suggest potential policy measures that could be helpful in the current circumstances. " --Executive Summary of IMF's Global Financial Stability Report, April 2009 The semiannual Global Financial Stability Report (GFSR) assesses key risks facing the global financial system with a view to identifying those that represent systemic vulnerabilities. In normal times, the

World Economic and Financial Surveys: Official Financing Recent Developments and Selected Issues

by International Monetary Fund

Whilst private finance sources (including foreign direct investment, bank lending and international bond issuance) make up most of the resource flows to middle income developing countries and transition economies, heavily indebted poor countries (HIPCs) rely largely on official development finance for investment. This report assesses developments in official financing to developing countries during the years 2000 to 2002, using current official data available up to December 2003. Issues discussed include export credits and debt restructuring with Paris Club and other bilateral creditors, trade finance in financial crises, the challenge of maintaining external debt sustainability in debtor countries, debt relief and new aid flows.

World Economic and Financial Surveys World Economic Outlook, April 2012: Growth Resuming, Dangers Remain

by International Monetary Fund

The April 2012 issue 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 with improved activity in the United States and better policies in the euro area. Weak recovery will likely resume in the major advanced economies, and activity will 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. Chapter 4 examines how swings in commodity prices affect commodity-exporting economies, many of which have experienced a decade of good growth. With commodity prices unlikely to continue growing at the recent elevated pace, however, these economies may have to adapt their fiscal and other policies to lower potential output growth in the future.

World Economic Outlook and International Capital Markets: Interim Assessment December 1998

by International Monetary Fund

This interim update of the IMF's latest regular reports on the World Economic Outlook (published in October 1998) and International Capital Markets (September 1998) provides a preliminary assessment of the unusual turbulence in international financial markets during much of the period August-November 1998, and its implications for the global economic outlook and for policy. the survey of prospects and policies is the product of a comprehensive interdepartmental review of world economic developments, which draws primarily on information the IMF gathers through its consultations with member countries. for its eveluation of developments in financial markets, the report also draws, in part, on informal discussions with commercial and investment banks, securities firms, stock and futures exchanges, and regulatory and monetary authorities.

World Economic Outlook April 2008: Housing and the Business Cycle

by International Monetary Fund

The global expansion is losing speed in the face of a major financial crisis. the slowdown has been greatest in the advanced economies, particularly in the United States, where the housing market correction continues to exacerbate financial stress. the emerging and developing economies have so far been less affected by fi nancial market developments and have continued to grow at a rapid pace, led by China and India, although activity is beginning to slow in some countries. At the same time, headline infl ation has increased around the world, boosted by the continuing buoyancy of food and energy prices. Policymakers around the world are facing a diverse and fast-moving set of challenges, and although each country's circumstances differ, in an increasingly multipolar world it will be essential to meet these challenges broadly, taking full account of cross-border interactions. the World Economic Outlook (WEO) presents the IMF staff's analysis and projections of economic developments at the global level, in major country groups (classified by region, stage of development, etc. ), and in many individual countries. It focuses on major economic policy issues as well as on the analysis of economic developments and prospects. It is usually prepared twice a year, as documentation for meetings of the International Monetary and Financial Committee, and forms the main instrument of the IMF's global surveillance activities.

World Economic Outlook April 2011: Tensions from the Two-speed Recovery Unemployment, Commodities, and Capital Flows

by International Monetary Fund

The April 2011 edition of the World Economic Outlook assesses the global prospects for economic growth in the face of policy challenges that remain unaddressed and new challenges now coming to the fore. In advanced economies, the resurgence of private demand has reduced concerns that diminishing fiscal policy support might cause a "double dip" recession. But unemployment remains high, and, although financial conditions continue to improve, they remain unusually vulnerable. In many emerging market economies, demand is robust and overheating is a growing policy concern. Rising food and commodities prices present new risks to the global economy, and two chapters directly explore these new challenges. Chapter 3 reviews the potential impact of oil scarcity on global growth, and Chapter 4 explores the potential response of international capital flows to changes in the global macroeconomic environment.
