Italy’s Quadruple Threat to Europe (MICHAEL BOSKIN ): '....If Europe’s cyclical upturn does not translate into long-term sustained growth, then the quadruple threat of Italy’s banks, debt, immigration backlash, and economic malaise will test the resilience of the single currency – and of European integration generally. Much will depend not just on Italy’s new government, but also on the fate of Macron’s reform agenda.,...'

Energy for the Common Good(JEFFREY SACHS ) : '. . . . Esta confusión es la razón por la que el Papa Francisco y el patriarca ecuménico Bartolomé nos estimulan a pensar seriamente en lo que es verdaderamente bueno para la humanidad, y cómo lograrlo. A comienzos de este mes, el Papa y el patriarca congregaron a líderes empresariales, científicos y académicos, en Roma y en Atenas respectivamente, para acelerar la transición de los combustibles fósiles a una energía renovable segura.....'

La crisis política de Alemania gira en torno al futuro de Europa (WOLFGANG MÜNCHAU ) : '. . . . Jun 16, 2018 RICHARD N. HAASS

Donald Trump’s depiction of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as a great success that solved the nuclear problem could make it tougher to maintain international support for the economic sanctions that are still needed to pressure Kim. Weakening the prospect of achieving one's goals is not the mark of a strong negotiator....'

The Singapore Summit’s Uncertain Legacy
Jun 16, 2018 RICHARD N. HAASS

Donald Trump’s depiction of his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as a great success that solved the nuclear problem could make it tougher to maintain international support for the economic sanctions that are still needed to pressure Kim.

El largo y ardiente verano italiano (CARMEN REINDHART ) :'. . . . . En el mejor de los casos, la reestructuración sólo incluiría la deuda de Italia con acreedores oficiales (gobiernos y organismos internacionales), lo que limitaría hasta cierto punto el traslado a los mercados financieros. Pero puede que este tipo de reestructuración no sea suficiente. A diferencia de Grecia (después de 2010), donde los acreedores oficiales poseían la mayor parte del stock de deuda, la deuda pública italiana está en su mayor parte en poder de residentes locales. Esto aumenta la importancia de una estrategia que minimice la fuga de capitales (aunque probablemente no se la podrá impedir del todo). En esta etapa, las autoridades deberían buscar una solución a los males de Italia que no genere más riesgos y complicaciones. Pero hay pocos motivos para esperar que acierten a encontrarla.....'

Our Infant Information Revolution
Jun 15, 2018 JOSEPH S. NYE

In the middle of the twentieth century, people feared that advances in computers and communications would lead to the type of centralized control depicted in George Orwell’s 1984. Today, billions of people have eagerly put Big Brother in their pockets.

The Anatomy of Global Debt (HOWARD DAVIES ) : '. . We must hope, therefore, that the Basel-based capital requirements imposed by the various US banking regulators are adequate. So far, the ratios have not been cut, though other deregulatory initiatives, proposed by Trump appointees in the relevant agencies, are in the works. Macroprudential policy may be working as intended in Slovakia, but it is unlikely to come to the rescue where it needed the most: in the world’s biggest financial market.....'

La larga espera para un resurgimiento de la productividad (MARTIN WOLF ) : '. . . Actualmente la inteligencia artificial está en sus primeras fases. Pero Brynjolfsson afirma que pronto cambiará todo. Esto es coherente con el hallazgo de Crafts and Mills de que la evolución anterior de la productividad apenas sirve para prever su evolución en el futuro.

Cuando observo el peso que tienen en la economía moderna los sectores de servicios de trabajo intensivo, como la sanidad, la educación y el cuidado de los niños y de los ancianos, llego a la conclusión de que la transformación tecnológica será lenta. Pero puede que esté equivocado y que provoque un cambio radical. ....'

The Republicans’ Protectionist Pedigree
Jun 13, 2018 JEFFREY FRANKEL

In recent decades, US Republicans have tended to embrace free trade more willingly than US Democrats. But, during most of its first century, the Republican Party was protectionist in both word and deed, and it has elected the four most aggressively protectionist presidents of the last 50 years.
