ROGOFF: The world's central banks should get ready for negative interest rates in the next recession

Kenneth Rogoff, a professor at Harvard University and one of the world's most prominent economists, said central banks across the globe must start preparing themselves to introduce negative interest rates during the next global recession. Negative rates are already in place in several major economies around the world, with the European Central Bank, the Bank of Japan, but other banks around the world would be wise to make preparations as well, Rogoff wrote in a new paper for the Journal of Economic Perspectives. "It makes sense not to wait until the next financial crisis to develop plans and, in any event, it is time for economists to stop pretending that implementing effective negative rates is as difficult today as it seemed in Keynes’ time," he said, citing the growth of cashless transactions as a reason to think that negative rates could be implemented more easily in future.

Brasil - Alemanha

A diferença fundamental e crítica nas 'estruturas industriais', entre Alemanha_Brasil que explícita a natureza do chamado Desenvolvimento Econômico_Paulo Gala.
País rico, não é aquele com abundância de recursos naturais.
País rico, é aquele que cria conhecimentos, mercados e faz uso de 'força de trabalho' qualificado, resultante de massivos investimentos em níveis educacionais de C, T & I, vinculando conhecimento com Indústria.
Tá legal ? Falta muito ao Brasil.

Desigualdade e complexidade econômica

Num instigante trabalho que conecta complexidade, instituições e desigualdade Cesar Hidalgo, Dominik Hartman, et el conseguem demonstrar de maneira robusta que países mais complexos apresentam níveis de desigualdade menores medidos por coeficientes gini. Os autores constroem uma criativa metodologia de índice gini ajustado por complexidade do tecido produtivo e chegam a resultados impressionantes em termos de correlações entre o que se produz e quão desigual, internamente, é um país. Como destacado no mapa acima, por exemplo, todos países produtores de cobre no mundo são mais desiguais (guardadas as devidas questões idiossincráticas) do que todos países produtores de máquinas e peças necessárias para a produção de papel. https://www.paulogala.com.br/paises-complexos-tem-baixa-de…/

Friedman Grande Depressão

Did Krugman Catch a Contradiction in Friedman's Great Depression Work?

by Luis Pablo de la Horra
Either the Great Depression was caused by government intervention (let us not forget that the Fed is a semi-public corporation) or it was brought about by the passivity of the US monetary authorities to actively respond to the crisis. According to Krugman, both arguments cannot be sustained simultaneously.

There's a morsel of good news about inequality that's buried in all the scary headlines

Income inequality is rising. It is also falling. It all depends on your search parameters.
That is, inequality has been rising sharply in rich nations, with the middle-class taking a big hit, even as millions of  poor residents in the developing world have edged their way into their own country’s middle-income strata.

Why Is Inflation So Low? Four Heterodox Explanations

Why Is Inflation So Low? Four Heterodox Explanations
Like the Pope during the Galileo affair, central bankers prefer to deny the facts that contradict their dogma, the Phillips curve and the Fisher equation in this case. The first posits the existence of a trade-off between inflation and the unemployment rate. The second defines the exogenous and stationary velocity of money as the ratio of nominal GDP to the monetary base. If these axioms hold, central bankers should be able to target both the inflation and unemployment rates by managing the money supply. But the past ten years have badly violated these two axioms: the supposedly negative relation between unemployment and inflation has been positive in most of the developed world, while the velocity

Japan Buries Our Most-Cherished Economic Ideas

Japan Buries Our Most-Cherished Economic Ideas
Japan is the graveyard of economic theories. The country has had ultralow interest rates and run huge government deficits for decades, with no sign of the inflation that many economists assume would be the natural result. Now, after years of trying almost every trick in the book to reflate the economy, the Bank of Japan is finally bowing to the inevitable. The BOJ’s “dot plot” shows that almost none of the central bank’s nine board members believe that the country will reach its 2 percent inflation target: Accordingly, the bank has pushed back the date at which it expects to hit its 2 percent target. That’s a little comical, since by now it should be fairly obvious that the date will only get
