The Advance of Emerging Economies Presented by: Carlos M. Asilis, PhD PRS LatAm “Business in Times of Economic Uncertainty” Conference IE Business School Madrid Spain November 21, 2008
2 The Advance of Emerging Economies Asset-Based Economy in Crisis. Vicious Deleveraging Cycle in Progress… Crisis Fueled by Imbalances Triggered by Overly Lax Monetary Conditions and lack of Prudent Financial Sector Supervision Asset Deflation in Progress…leading to Goods and Services Price Deflation Bullish Long-term, Secular Dynamics Facing the Emerging Economies Largely Intact Though Signs of Policy Slippage and Macro Imbalances Increasingly Evident (e.g. Venezuela, Ecuador, Argentina, CEE, Property Sector in Asia) Global Financial Crisis Already Morphing into Severe World Economic Crisis. Emerging Economies’ Vulnerabilities Largely Tied to Exposure to World Trade and Growing Reliance on Cross-Border Capital Inflows Going Forward, Cross-country Dispersion in Credit Fundamentals and Business Attractiveness Will Rise Sharply.
3 Emerging Economies’ Fundamentals Have Strengthened Steadily Since 2002 Source: Fitch Ratings, as of 12th Nov 2008; Fitch Sovereign Rating History, July 2006 Fitch Long Term Credit Ratings Foreign Currency Local Currency Foreign Currency Local Currency BrazilB+ BBB- ChinaA-A A+AA- Czech Rep.BBB+A A+AA- IndiaBBBB+ BBB- IsraelA-A AA+ KoreaAAA- A+AA MalaysiaBBB+A A-A+ MexicoBBB-BBB BBB+A- RussiaBB- BBB+ TaiwanA+AA A+AA ThailandBBB-BBB+ A TurkeyBB BB-BB South AfricaBBB-BBB+ A Higher GDP Growth, Lower Inflation, Stronger Fiscal Positions, Higher International Reserves

5 Reality Shock to Many in the Markets Cross-border and domestic credit in emerging markets Cross-border claims of BIS reporting banks vis-à-vis emerging markets 1 Domestic credit to the private sector 2 In billions of US dollarsAs a percentage of GDP Emerging markets Claims on banks Asia Claims on banks Latin America Claims on banks CEE Claims on banks External positions of reporting banks vis-à-vis individual countries on a residence basis; amounts outstanding.

Source: IMF; National Data; BIS Banking Statistics. Much of the Emerging Economies’ Impressive Performance since 2002 Has Been Externally Driven. Favorable Terms of Trade Shocks (LatAm, S. Africa,Russia); Sharp Acceleration of Cross Border Flows (CEE) and Above Trend World GDP Growth (Asia) Favorable world financial conditions fueled large Cross-border flows into Emerging Economies, contributing to sharp expansion in macro imbalances and domestic credit

The Potent Combination of Favorable Terms of Trade Shocks/Benign Financial Conditions/Partial Sterilization of Capital Inflows Led to Sharp Real Exchange Rate Appreciation, Financial Intermediation and GDP Growth. Since 2001, EM Countries’ Public Sector Savings have strengthened while Private Sector Leverage has increased. In CEE, both Public and Private Sector Savings have deteriorated sharply, making those Economies increasingly vulnerable to External Shocks. Public and Private Sector Savings and Leverage

11 Contributions to Real GDP Growth (%): Emerging Asia’s Growth increasingly tied to Domestic Consumption while continuing to benefit from Exports Source: BIS, JP Morgan Chase, World Financial Markets, National Data While All EM Regions Recorded Strong GDP Growth since 2002, the Quality of Such Growth Varied Across Regions…in Asia, External and Domestic Growth Balance Has Been Sustained… China 1 Other Asia 2,3 PCE 7,8 Investment 8 Net exports 8 GCE 8,9 GDP Growth 6 Comments 1 A breakdown of consumption is not available. 2 Weighted average of the economies listed, based on 2005 GDP and PPP exchange rates. 3 Hong Kong SAR, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan (China) and Thailand. 4 Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. 5 The Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. 6 In per cent. 7 Private consumption expenditure. 8 In percentage points. 9 Government consumption expenditure.

15 Emerging Economies’ Outlook ■ In the short-term, Priority Lies in Restoration of Global Financial and Macro Stability ■ Measures required for restoration of macro and financial stability ALREADY being applied include liquidity (interest rate cuts), capitalization (of financial institutions), forbearance (accounting standards). This process still ongoing ■ Measures required for restoration of macro stability YET TO BE applied include the fiscal arena, a la New Deal under Roosevelt. Areas to benefit from such stimuli include infrastructure, local governments. ■ Investors must realize that risks to the macro outlook include not only the potential errors of POLICY IMPLEMENTATION but also of POLICY DESIGN. After all, from our vantage point, one of the biggest surprises of 2008 consists of the succession of policy mistakes on the part of Paulson’s Treasury. There are NO guarantees other errors of commission will not occur in the coming months. ■ Other risks to the outlook include protectionism (e.g. recent examples out of India and Russia). ■ From our perspective, the endgame to the stabilization cycle will correspond to a recovery of commodity prices through the reflationary nature of the ongoing policy response. This is quite positive for the EM space.
