Summary and Info
This book explores key economic problems and new policies for the global economy of the 21st century. The contributors discuss to what extent past policy errors were due to the incompetence of policymakers, and highlight problems including: international payments imbalances and currency crises, volatile security markets, inflation, achieving full employment, income distribution and alleviating individuals and nations of poverty. In particular, topics explored include: • the development problem experienced by Brazil during the past two decades • the desire of most developing nations to achieve an export-led growth strategy • the constraint of balance-of-payments on Mexico’s long-term economic growth • the relationship between group division and levels of economic development • decreasing economic growth in the United States • the consideration of effective demand, and structural and technological change • the relationship between unemployment and profitability. The book presents a challenging set of arguments, and illustrates the many problems faced by decision makers in their attempt at policy making in the new global economy. It will be of special interest to economists, central bankers, government policymakers and those involved in financial markets.
