World Recession in 2015


Quite busy today. But a piece that I wrote for Al Jazeera on the prospect of a world recession in 2015 went up yesterday. It might be of interest to some readers. As the piece makes clear we cannot be sure that this will actually play out the way I outline. But there is certainly a distinct possibility. And for that alone it is worth commenting on.

Another US recession may be coming … sooner than you think

    But isn’t it a good thing that emerging markets are investing less nowadays? I remember a lot of economists and pundits saying that we must resolve global imbalances: the US needs to export more, emerging markets need to import more, China has to shift to a consumption-driven growth model, etc. This narrative sounds very simplistic, but really, why can’t consumption compensate for investment (and exports) to maintain trend growth? Do emerging markets suffer from a lack of (internal) aggregate demand too?
