New Conundrums About Global Growth


Coming out of the Great Recession, there are concerns about both the path of economic recovery and longer-term growth prospects in many parts of the world. Even within the ambit of the so-called “new normal” there are prevailing uncertainties. Some revolve around jobless recoveries; others around slowdowns in world demand for exports; and still others around the shifting economic power balances. There is no doubt that we are witnessing economic convergence; however, there is considerable doubt about the stewardship of the global economy. There may well be a critical disconnect between those who are gaining economic strength and those who matter for global economic management.  Institutional arrangements are fraying and governments are being tempted to try heterodox policies that may be damaging to others. The state of the global political economy may well be more precarious than pundits think and hence the need for stronger international cooperation may well be an urgent global priority.
