This Selected Issues paper uncovers the factors behind the unprecedented widening of India’s current account deficit in terms of the sectoral savings-investment balance. The unprecedented widening of India’s current account deficit in recent years is a symptom of underlying macroeconomic imbalances and structural weaknesses. Persistently high inflation has depressed real returns, prompting a surge in gold imports and a marked deterioration in household financial savings and the savings-investment balance. In turn, improvement in the public sector’s savings-investment balance was achieved through capital spending cuts, as subsidies remained high and fuel price adjustments lagged. Further efforts to increase financial savings would help reduce the current account deficit sustainably and boost growth.

Five years after the first stirrings of the crisis, some countries have recovered, but others are still struggling. F&D looks at the world today and sees a complex and mixed picture for the future of the world economy. In "Tracking the Global Recovery" we learn that most emerging markets seem to have moved on from the effects of the crisis, but most advanced economies have not. "Fixing the System" looks at how the pace of reforms to strengthen financial regulation has now slowed. World Bank trade economist Bernard Hoekman takes stock of incipient moves toward protectionism in "Trade Policy: So Far So Good?". "Bystanders at the Collapse" looks at how emerging markets and low-income countries weathered the global recession. Financier Mohamed El-Erian weighs in on the potential threat posed by large payment surpluses and deficits in "Stable Disequilibrium." Also in the magazine, we explore what's happening in commodities markets, assess the rise of green technologies, take a look at the shifts in South Asia's labor force, and uncover the harm money laundering can inflict on national economies. F&D's People in Economics series profiles Laura Tyson, Minder of the Gaps, and the Back to Basics series explains how money markets provide a way for borrowers to meet short-term financial needs.

Cinq ans après le début de la crise, certains pays se sont relevés, mais d'autres restent en difficulté. Ce numéro de F&D se penche sur le monde d'aujourd'hui : l'avenir de l'économie mondiale s'annonce complexe et contrasté. Dans « La reprise mondiale en perspective », nous apprenons que la plupart des pays émergents semblent s'être sortis des effets de la crise, mais ce n'est pas le cas pour la plupart des pays avancés. L'article « Réparer le système » aborde le ralentissement du rythme des réformes visant à renforcer la réglementation financière. Dans « Politique commerciale : bilan positif ? », Bernard Hoekman, économiste de la Banque mondiale spécialisé dans le commerce international, dresse un état des lieux des tendances protectionnistes. L'article « Témoins innocents de la débâcle » relate comment les pays émergents et à faible revenu ont surmonté la récession mondiale. Dans « Un déséquilibre stable », le financier Mohamed El-Erian se penche sur le risque potentiel que posent les considérables excédents et déficits de paiement. Dans cette édition, nous nous intéressons également à l'évolution des marchés des produits de base, à la progression des technologies vertes, aux mutations de la population active en Asie du Sud, et aux lourdes conséquences du blanchiment de capitaux pour les économies nationales. La rubrique « Paroles d'économistes » dresse le portrait de Laura Tyson, l'ennemie des inégalités, et « L’ABC de l’économie » explique comment les marchés monétaires permettent aux emprunteurs de répondre à leurs besoins de financement à court terme.

Cinco años después de los primeros sacudones de la crisis, algunos países se han recuperado, pero otros aún no han dejado atrás los problemas. F&D examina la actualidad mundial y observa un panorama complejo y desigual para el futuro de la economía mundial. “Tras la pista de la recuperación mundial” muestra que la mayoría de los mercados emergentes parecen haber superado los efectos de la crisis, pero no así la mayor parte de las economías avanzadas. “Arreglar el sistema” describe cómo se ha desacelerado el ritmo de las reformas encaminadas a afianzar la regulación financiera. Bernard Hoekman, economista del Banco Mundial especializado en comercio internacional, hace un balance del incipiente movimiento hacia el proteccionismo en “Política comercial: ¿Hasta ahora, todo bien?”. “Testigos del derrumbe” examina cómo capearon la recesión mundial los países de mercados emergentes y de bajo ingreso. En “Desequilibrio estable”, el financista Mohamed El-Erian evalúa la amenaza potencial que plantean los superávits y déficits de pagos. Este número aborda también lo que está ocurriendo en los mercados de materias primas, el surgimiento de las tecnologías verdes, los cambios en la fuerza laboral de Asia meridional y el perjuicio que el lavado de dinero puede causar a las economías nacionales. En “Gente del mundo de la economía”, F&D traza una semblanza de Laura Tyson y en “Vuelta a lo esencial” explica de qué manera los mercados monetarios permiten a los prestatarios satisfacer las necesidades financieras a corto plazo.
