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.

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.

Increasing global liquidity The IMF has injected $250 billion into the global economy through a new allocation of Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), an IMF reserve asset. The move, approved by the IMF’s Board of Governors on August 7, is designed to increase global liquidity by supplementing the Fund’s 186 member countries’ foreign exchange reserves. The equivalent of nearly $100 billion of the allocation went to emerging markets and developing countries, of which low-income countries received more than $18 billion. Low-income countries are also being
