Successive reforms have brought many positive elements to the European Union’s fiscal framework. But they have also increased its complexity. The current system involves an intricate set of fiscal constraints, which hampers effective monitoring and public communication. Compliance has also been weak. This note discusses medium-term reform options to simplify the framework and improve compliance.

Like many countries in Latin America, growth in Peru slowed markedly in 2014, but is expected to recover this year, supported by strong policy responses, the IMF said in its annual report on the Peruvian economy. Peru remains one of the best performers in Latin America, with solid macroeconomic policies and fundamentals, and visible gains in poverty reduction. But the country faced a challenging external environment in 2014. Lower metal prices and moderate trading partner growth were a major drag on private investment and exports. External shocks were compounded by a drop in subnational public investment and temporary supply disruptions in fishing, mining, and agriculture. #peru

New profile of prize-winning economist Hélène Rey just published in the IMF's Finance & Development magazine. She has made a reputation by challenging accepted wisdom, particularly about the international financial system, the role of the dollar, and other big macroeconomic issues. Fellow economists call her work and ideas “provocative” and “influential.”

The forum brought together data users, providers, and policymakers to exchange views on cutting-edge statistical issues. The high-level discussions touched upon themes such as key market indicators, real estate prices, the use of survey data for policymaking, the use of “Big Data,” and analytical techniques to measure interconnectedness and spillovers for systemic risk assessment and macroeconomic surveillance.

Structural transformation depends not only on how much countries export but also on what they export and with whom they trade. This paper breaks new ground in analyzing India’s exports by the technological content, quality, sophistication, and complexity of the export basket. We identify five priority areas for policies: (1) reduction of trade costs, at and behind the border; (2) further liberalization of FDI including through simplification of regulations and procedures; (3) improving infrastructure including in urban areas to enhance manufacturing and services in cities; (4) preparing labor resources (skills) and markets (flexibility) for the technological progress that will shape jobs in the years ahead; and (5) creating an enabling environment for innovation and entrepreneurship to draw the economy into higher productivity activities. #india   #trade
