Recovery from the deepest recession in 60 years has started. But sustaining it will require delicate rebalancing acts, both within and across countries. IMF chief economist Olivier Blanchard writes in our lead article that the turnaround will not be simple. The crisis has left deep scars that will affect both supply and demand for many years to come. This issue of F&D also looks at what’s next in the global crisis and beyond. We look at ways of unwinding crisis support, the shape of growth worldwide after the crisis, ways of rebuilding the financial architecture, and the future of reserve currencies. Jeffrey Frankel examines what’s in and what’s out in global money, while a team from the IMF’s Research Department looks at what early warning systems can be expected to deliver in spotting future problems. In our regular People in Economics profile, we speak to Nobel prize winner Daniel Kahneman, whose work led to the creation of the field of behavioral economics, and our Picture This feature gives a timeline of how the Bank of England’s policy rate has fallen to its lowest level in 300 years. Back to Basics gives a primer on monetary policy, and Data Spotlight looks at how the crisis has affected the eastern European banking system.

Executive Directors commend Bangladesh in addressing the major challenges to growth and poverty reduction. The strategy is comprehensive and confronts the key issues impeding sustainable development and inclusive growth in Bangladesh. Implementing sound macro-financial policies, intensifying revenue mobilization, improving the business environment, ensuring trade liberalization, and improving governance and accountability are top priorities. Actions should be sequenced according to these priorities. Severe external shocks could reignite macroeconomic pressures and undermine socioeconomic targets.

The progress report on Haiti’s Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper is discussed. The Action Plan for National Recovery and Development of Haiti has been presented to the international community at the United Nations conference in New York in March 2010. The plan presents immediate responses to the losses and damage caused by the earthquake, but also outlines a number of key initiatives for creating the conditions to tackle the structural causes of Haiti's underdevelopment. Policies and measures have been adopted to maintain domestic and external monetary stability by lowering the inflation rate, controlling monetary financing, and having a stable exchange rate.

According to the fifth review of the Poverty Reduction and Growth Facility (PRGF) arrangement, the Haitian authorities remain committed to macroeconomic stability under the program. On completion of the fifth review of the PRGF, they requested a new three-year Extended Credit Facility (ECF) arrangement to help sustain economic growth and to preserve macroeconomic stability. The IMF Board approved a three-year arrangement for Haiti under the PRGF. This will help ensure that endorsement of policy measures to preserve macroeconomic stability and sustain growth in Haiti can be undertaken before the current PRGF expires.

La recuperación para salir de la peor recesión en 60 años ha empezado, pero para sustentarla se precisa un equilibrio delicado de políticas a escala nacional e internacional. En el artículo central, el economista principal del FMI, Olivier Blanchard, afirma que la recuperación no será sencilla. La crisis ha dejado cicatrices profundas y duraderas en la oferta y la demanda. En este número de F&D abordamos la evolución de la crisis mundial y la situación futura. Analizamos temas como el repliegue del apoyo brindado durante la crisis, el crecimiento mundial tras la crisis, la reforma de la arquitectura financiera y el futuro de las monedas de reserva. Jeffrey Frankel reseña las últimas tendencias monetarias a nivel mundial y un equipo del Departamento de Estudios examina cómo los sistemas de alerta anticipada pueden ayudar a detectar problemas en el futuro. En "Gente del mundo de la economía" entrevistamos a Daniel Kahneman, ganador del premio Nobel por sus aportes en el campo de la economía del comportamiento, y en "Bajo la lupa" seguimos la evolución de la tasa de política monetaria del Banco de Inglaterra, que se encuentra en su nivel más bajo en 300 años. En "Vuelta a lo esencial" se presenta un abecé sobre política monetaria, y en "Un vistazo a las cifras" se examina el impacto de la crisis en el sistema bancario de Europa oriental.

La sortie de la récession la plus profonde des 60 dernières années est engagée. Mais pour entretenir la reprise, les pays devront bien doser leur action, aux plans national et international. Olivier Blanchard, Chef économiste du FMI, donne le ton en rappelant dans son article que le redressement ne sera pas aisé. La crise a laissé de profondes séquelles qui pèseront encore pendant longtemps sur l’offre et la demande. Cette édition de F&D se penche sur l’évolution à venir de la crise mondiale et sur son issue. Comment dénouer les politiques de relance? Quelle croissance après la crise? Comment reconstruire l’architecture financière? Quel est l’avenir des monnaies de réserves? Jeffrey Frankel examine ce qui est en vogue et ce qui ne l’est plus dans la finance internationale, et une équipe du Département des études analyse ce que l’on est en droit d’attendre des systèmes d’alerte précoce. Dans la rubrique «Paroles d’économistes», nous nous entretenons avec Daniel Kahneman, lauréat du Prix Nobel et pionnier de l’économie comportementale. La section «Pleins feux» trace, quant à elle, la chronologie du taux directeur de la Banque d’Angleterre qui a atteint son plus bas niveau en trois cents ans. « L’ABC de l’économie » rappelle les principes de la politique monétaire, tandis que « Gros plan » porte sur les effets de la crise pour le système bancaire de l'Est de l'Europe.
