3 A Global Real Estate Boom Appears Residential Construction Becomes a Growing Percentage of Real Investment Responding to Low Interest Rates –But Prices Rise Rapidly Too: In the Early 21st Century Values Rise from $40 Trillion to More Than $70 Trillion The Biggest Bubble in History: The US, Spain, Britain, Ireland There Is a Wealth Effect Encouraging Consumption –Additionally, People Can Borrow More Against Their Increased Capital Values Peak at End of 2005 in US, Later Elsewhere Then There is Substantial Debt, But No Matching Assets 3

4 The Bubble: Going Up Q Q Spain 15.5% 17.2% 145% France Germany Ireland UK Australia US Japan

5 The Financial Sector Expands Financial Intermediation Rises –New financial instruments created Collateralized Debt Obligations Credit Default Swaps –Much kept off the balance sheets Structured Investment Vehicles –Rise of hedge funds Occurs Internationally Even US Nasdaq decline is temporary Leverage Goes Up 5

6 The New Economy Begins To Fray A Jobless Recovery After 2001 With No Wage Growth –Income Distribution Worsens Perceptibly Stock Options For the Rich Consumption Drives the Economy: Despite Initial Stock Market Decline A Sense of Economic Irrationality Prevails: –Capital Inflows Replace Domestic Savings Federal Reserve Only Raises Interest Rates in June 2004 –Continues Upward Until June 2006: 5 ½% 6

7 But Global Collapse Is Around the Corner… The Process First Begins to Unravel in the US in 2007 –Credit Crisis Occurs Briefly at End of August Central Banks Begin to Collaborate –Growth Begins to Show Effects of Housing Contraction Recession Seems Imminent –Federal Reserve Begins Reducing Interest Rate in September and Again in December But Few Predict Magnitude of the Shock 7

8 US Financial System Under Increasing Strain Federal Reserve Lowers Interest Rate in January 2008 By 125 Points to 3% Then Comes A Record Tax Rebate of $167 Billion in February –Doubts –Later Shown To Be Correct- About Positive Effects A Dramatic Decision in March : Bear, Stearns Is Acquired By JP Morgan –The Federal Reserve Has to Guarantee Asset Value First Right Afterwards, Fed Rate Falls to 2.25% –And Quickly Goes to 2% in April As Fed Seeks to Provide Unlimited Resources In Uncertain Market Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae Are Nationalized In August Is This Intervention Enough? 8

9 September Is the Cruelest Month A Weekend FBNY Conference: Who Wants Lehman Brothers? –No One Then the Lights Begin To Go Out –AIG Has to Be Publicly Acquired Soon After –Merrill, Lynch Acquired by Bank of America –JP Morgan Chase Buys Washington Mutual –Wells Fargo Later Takes Over Wachovia Congress Considers A Major Financial Assistance Package, TARP –It Doesnt Pass Right Away: The Stock Market Declines by 22% –Then It Does: $700 Billion to Save The Banks Thereafter, the Fed Increases the Money Supply Without Limit 9

10 The Rest of the Developed World Is in Trouble, Too Unlike the Past, This Time Europe and Japan Follow the US –It Began With the UK and Black Rock in September 2007 No Surprise: Residential Housing Is A Major Cause in Many Countries –But It is Also Purchase by EU Banks of US Mortgage Securities Policy Coordination Still Weak –ECB Raises Interest Rate by.25% in July 2008 Reason Is Fear of Inflation: Rising Food and Fuel Prices –But Rates Already Higher Than US and Japan –Large Lending to Commercial Banks Occurs Japan Declines As Exports Begin to Weaken –High Fiscal Deficits and Low Interest Rates Do Not Help Much A Carry Trade Develops, and Extends to Emerging Countries 10

12 Fiscal deficits rise within developed countries Fiscal deficits increase –Compensatory finance automatically adjusts –Additional governmental outlays and tax cuts occur But not enough to avoid sharply rising unemployment –Construction is labor intensive activity Increased indebtedness occurs as a consequence –For the US, much of the increase is external Almost 40% of public debt, half in Japan and China Short-term adjustment can translate into longer-term problem –Will foreign debt holders accept current low interest rates –Will fiscal accounts improve in time to avoid a mounting disequilibrium 12

13 Financial sector takes priority Magnitude of bad loans is impressive –IMF calculates as $2.8 trillion problem Concentrated in US and EU Decision to treat immediately and not delay as in Japan Central question emerges –Bankruptcy or bail-out? Some favor buy-out –Main street against wall street Bail-out selected on the whole –Too big to fail Changes in financial regulation legislation and Basel rules come a year later 13

14 Recovery begins to take shape: the US Obamas policies for recovery –Monetary expansion by Fed continues into 2010 and beyond Credit availability grows slowly –Housing market difficult to fix as mortgage defaults rise –Aggressive fiscal help $787 billion stimulus plan approved early on –Would it be enough? Internal deficit grows to almost double digits Politics increasingly divides rather than unites Unemployment lags, and goes higher than predicted –Household wealth reduced by more than $10 trillion in 2008 Most due to stock market fall Increasingly, corporate earnings recover and stock market goes up Growth projections are first raised, but then lowered 14

16 Recovery begins to take shape: Japan Japan had grown from , recuperating its position among the OECD countries –In fact, the longest post-war continuous positive period –Export growth was the secret, increasingly to China and rest of Asia –With spreading recession in 2008, decline occurs with recuperation only in 2009 and continuing in 2010 –Internal deficit grows some more It adds to very large debt, viable because of low interest rate and internal savings –External surplus threatened by appreciating currency Domestic investment lags as does recovery 16

18 Europe, another crisis in the making? The EU does not go on unaffected –Housing boom in Britain, Ireland, Spain comes to a halt Financial sector is hit as a consequence, and elsewhere as well –Deleveraging is necessary and public sector is available to help –Internal deficits rise, and Maastricht targets disappear –Growth is negative and some countries pay a heavy price IMF is involved in Baltic countries, Iceland, Hungary Russia hurt by fall in petroleum prices, but has ample reserves –A fundamental disequilibrium within the euro area Germany sells and the rest buy too much –No easy way to rebalance with fixed exchange rate –The Greek problem threatens and now Ireland: IMF help needed 18

20 Developing Economies Lead Recovery After the downturn in 2008, China and India lead the world economy forward –Delinking didnt occur: globalization is real –But financial systems are less integrated Recovery in the developing economies is rapid –Involves lesser fiscal deficits –For most, involves lesser consumption Responsible for a majority of world growth

27 South-South Unity: Myth or Reality?

28 Brazil: Next Year Slower Real Growth –After more than 7% in 2010 hardly surprising Estimates 4.5 to 5% –But need for adjustment Inflation may remain a problem: higher than Central Bank target –More rapid World recovery may strengthen increase – Unemployment already down –Capacity utilization running at high level –Selic rate projected to rise 150 basis points to 12.25% –Exchange rate around 1.75 Reais per dollar Will Such short-term measures be enough? 28

29 Brazil: The Medium Term I Domestic investment is too low: 19% GDP –China and India show rates more than twice as great And there are many future needs –Petroleum pre-sal investments substantial –Infrastructure: Housing, Ports, Roads, Railways –World Cup, Olympics –Education To grow at 5% a year, I has to be close to 25% because of capital intensity of investments To keep foreign inflows at a level of 3%, domestic savings has to increase from 16% to 22% Where will it come from? –One place: Public pension deficit >3%GDP 29

30 Brazil: The Medium Term II Other reforms are needed as well –Fiscal Magnitude and efficiency State value added taxes –Labor Ease in absorption –International trade Brazilian tariffs, unlike Chinese and Indian, have not come down 30
