Malaysia and Vietnam can take the lead in US-Asia trade deal | Asian Correspondent | ES | Scoop.it
NO sooner had the ink dried on the final (and still classified) text of the 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), an avalanche of criticism was launched at the U.S.-led initiative to bind together the economies of the Pacific Rim. The ensuing cacophony straddled both sides of the political aisle and even pushed Hillary Clinton, one of the deal’s main architects, to fold and condemn the trade agreement. Asian politicians didn’t fare much better, weakened by a stronger than expected public backlash.

The four global forces breaking all the trends | McKinsey & Company

The four global forces breaking all the trends | McKinsey & Company | ES | Scoop.it
The final disruptive force is the degree to which the world is much more connected through trade and through movements in capital, people, and information (data and communication)—what we call “flows.
Ian Korman's insight:
Beyond Shanghai: The age of urbanization - "The first trend is the shifting of the locus of economic activity and dynamism to emerging markets like China and to cities within those markets. These emerging markets are going through simultaneous industrial and urban revolutions, shifting the center of the world economy east and south at a speed never before witnessed."The tip of the iceberg: Accelerating technological change - "The second disruptive force is the acceleration in the scope, scale, and economic impact of technology."Getting old isn't what it used to be: Responding to the challenges of an aging world - "The human population is getting older. Fertility is falling, and the world's population is graying dramatically."Trade, people, finance, and data: Greater global connections - "The final disruptive force is the degree to which the world is much more connected through trade and through movements in capital, people, and information (data and communication)—what we call "flows."

Shifting tides: Global economic scenarios for 2015–25 | McKinsey & Company

Shifting tides: Global economic scenarios for 2015–25 | McKinsey & Company | ES | Scoop.it
Stimulating aggregate demand. Of immediate concern is the persistent problem of weak aggregate demand relative to overall economic capacity. The International Monetary Fund estimates that production in the ten largest advanced economies was 2 percent below potential in 2014. This gap was smaller than it had been in 2009 (3.3 percent) but significantly worse than the surplus of 0.8 percent that prevailed in the early 2000s.3 All major economies except China experienced significantly weaker demand in the aftermath of the global financial crisis. Many governments and central banks responded with fiscal and monetary stimulus programs that fostered the low real-interest-rate environments which have endured for over five years. The McKinsey Global Institute reviewed the recent performance of advanced economies and found that they had all increased rather than reduced their overall debt levels—in some cases, by more than 50 percent.
