The global trade slowdown puzzle

What’s at stake: This week’s data renewed concerns about developments in global trade as it showed for the last 6 months the biggest contraction in global trade since the end of the financial crisis. While cyclical factors may be at play, trade specialists have also advanced a host of structural explanations to explain the decline in the trade elasticity, ranging from a shift in the composition of trade to limits in the fragmentation of world production.

Emerging markets and Europe: time for different relationships?

Now that Europe can focus on medium-term issues rather than crisis management, it is the right time to reassess relations with the emerging markets. While the US seems to be betting on Asia, through its famous “pivot” and TPP, Europe is far from having a clear strategy. This session will explore how to create a mutually beneficial relationship between Europe and the emerging markets.

The history of the macroeconomic divide

What’s at stake: Following up on his mathiness critique that economic theory is becoming a sloppy mixture of words and symbols, Paul Romer wrote a series of blog posts over the past few weeks discussing how things went so far off in the macroeconomic field, where a group (often referred as fresh-water economists) completely retreated from scientific engagement with macroeconomists who disagreed with them and gave up on using evidence to evaluate models.
