Abstract

The IMF carries out its mandate to foster macroeconomic stability and thereby facilitate prosperity by promoting the adoption of sound policies and international cooperation. Ultimately, the means to achieve these goals is to have Fund policy advice translated into concrete action. Key to achieving such traction is the relationship between Fund staff and member country authorities, together with the quality of the advice and members’ confidence in it. That is, the Fund needs to be seen as a trusted advisor. This evaluation examines in what circumstances the Fund is viewed as a trusted advisor to its member countries. It uses evidence gathered since 2005, but emphasizes the period since the onset of the global crisis in 2007–08. Because the concept of trusted advisor is “in the eyes of the beholder,” the evaluation derives the main attributes from country authorities themselves.

Abstract

The October 2012 World Economic Outlook (WEO) assesses the prospects for the global recovery in light of such risks as the ongoing euro area crisis and the “fiscal cliff” facing U.S. policymakers. Reducing the risks to the medium-term outlook implies reducing public debt in the major advanced economies, and Chapter 3 explores 100 years of history of dealing with public debt overhangs. In emerging market and developing economies, activity has been slowed by policy tightening in response to capacity constraints, weaker demand from advanced economies, and country-specific factors, but policy improvements have raised these economies’ resilience to shocks, an issue explored in depth in Chapter 4.

Abstract

La edición de octubre de 2012 de Perspectivas de la economía mundial evalúa el panorama con respecto a la recuperación global, considerando riesgos tales como la actual crisis de la zona del euro y el llamado abismo o precipicio fiscal al que se enfrentan las autoridades de Estados Unidos. Para reducir los riesgos que empañan las perspectivas a mediano plazo es necesario reducir la deuda pública en las principales economías avanzadas, y en el capítulo 3 se pasa revista a 100 años de historia en relación con problemas de sobreendeudamiento público. En las economías de mercados emergentes y en desarrollo, la actividad se ha desacelerado debido a la aplicación de políticas más restrictivas en respuesta a limitaciones de la capacidad, una menor demanda de las economías avanzadas y factores específicos de cada país. Sin embargo, el fortalecimiento de las políticas ha creado en estas economías mayor capacidad de resistencia a los shocks, tema que se examina en profundidad en el capítulo 4.

Abstract

L'édition d'octobre 2012 des Perspectives de l’économie mondiale examine les chances de reprise mondiale compte tenu des risques que posent la crise persistante de la zone euro et le « précipice budgétaire » qui menace les dirigeants américains. La réduction des risques pesant sur les perspectives à moyen terme passe par une réduction de la dette publique dans les principaux pays avancés, et le chapitre 3 dresse une rétrospective sur un siècle de la gestion du surendettement public. Dans les pays émergents ou en développement, l'activité a ralenti en raison d'un certain resserrement dû aux contraintes de capacité, du fléchissement de la demande des pays avancés, et de facteurs propres à certains pays, mais l'amélioration des politiques économiques a renforcé la résistance de ces pays face aux chocs. C'est ce qu'examine le chapitre 4.
