False Dichotomies

Analytical distinctions, like those made in economics, are necessary for any theoretical advances to occur. When these distinctions begin to shape an economist’s view of the world rather than respond to it, it is right to ask if these distinctions have lost their usefulness, an enquiry that can, in itself, be a source of intellectual progress.

At this conference, the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) and The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) trained the spotlight on some of the bright lines that have been drawn by economists — between macro and micro, between money markets and capital markets, and between developed countries and developing economies.

CIGI '12: Five Years After the Fall

Over the past five years, the global financial crisis has dominated international policy discussions. This August marks the fifth anniversary of its outbreak. The starting point for the CIGI ’12 conference, then, is the recognition that the legacy of the global financial crisis is felt across a spectrum of issues. These issues span the short-term outlook for global growth, global financial regulation and strengthening the Financial Stability Board (FSB); the challenges of poverty reduction and sustainable development; and the transition in global leadership, as, on the one hand, US economic and strategic leadership is eroded by the legacy of the financial crisis and political gridlock over public finances, while, on the other hand, China and other emerging economies continue their economic and geo-political rise. CIGI ’12 will focus on making concrete policy recommendations to build the global governance arrangements that are needed to respond effectively to the legacy of the crisis.
