CEP 21st BIRTHDAY LECTURE SERIES: The State of the World Economy

Olivier Blanchard (International Monetary Fund)

A strong and sustained world recovery requires two rebalancing acts. Internal, with a shift, in advanced countries, from fiscal support to private demand. External, with an increase in net exports in deficit countries, notably the US, and a decrease in net exports in surplus countries, notably China. Policy should be aimed at increasing their pace. This event is the first in a series of lectures to celebrate 21 years of the Centre for Economic Performance.
