– Jayati Ghosh, Project-Syndicate: The reality captured by the World Inequality Report 2022 reflects human choices, which means that it can be changed by making other choices. That is why the report is not just a valuable compendium of useful data and analysis but also a guide to action. – Lifting the Lid on Global Inequality
– Reid Standish, RFE RL: For three days in May 1989, Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev visited Beijing amid great fanfare. It was the first visit by a Soviet leader to China since a border conflict in 1969 that sparked decades-long tensions between the two countries, but it would be the last. – How China Became A Force In The Former Soviet Space After The Fall Of The U.S.S.R.
– Shang-Jin Wei, Project-Syndicate: The United States claims that China routinely violates its World Trade Organization obligations, and that the global body is ineffectual at changing Chinese behavior. But the data do not support such assertions, and the perception that the US narrative has created is hurting the global trading system. – Misreading China’s WTO Record Hurts Global Trade
– Sara Jane Ahmed, Alicia Barcena, Daniel Titelman, Project-Syndicate: The IMF’s allocation of $650 billion in special drawing rights in August was long encouraged and widely welcomed. But its follow-up proposal for channeling finance to the most climate-vulnerable countries is so flawed that it would exclude many of the neediest. – The IMF’s Misstep on Climate Finance
– Alexis A. Crow, Samir Saran, ORF: As the price of natural gas reached record highs in the UK and Europe—trading at the equivalent of $200 per barrel of oil, and as economic activity in China has been curtailed by the country’s power supply crunch, central bankers and policymakers from across the globe are forced to confront significant challenges to price stability, with a focus on shielding households and businesses from an increase to the cost of transport and basic goods, while monitoring the potential for price pressure and supply chain bottlenecks to upend the global economic recovery. This is important at this time, for the ripple effects of disruptions to energy markets could amplify social and political fissures that are visible across the global landscape, and which might portend complex domestic politics as many countries head into elections in 2022. – The Geopolitics of Energy Transition: A Guide for Policymakers, Executives, and Investors
– Barry Eichengreen, Project-Syndicate: There was never any economic basis for the limits on government deficits and debt that the European Union adopted in 1992 and has maintained ever since. With huge new investments needed to meet the EU’s climate goals, now is an ideal opportunity for an overhaul. – Greening Europe’s Fiscal Rules
Pakistan-Summit for Democracy
– Madiha Afzal, Brookings: In a surprise move, Pakistan, one of the 110 countries invited to U.S. President Joe Biden’s Summit for Democracy, skipped the event. Its Ministry of Foreign Affairs offered an oblique statement, thanking the administration for the invitation, and saying that it looked forward to engaging with the U.S. on democracy “at an opportune time in the future.” – Pakistan skipped the Summit for Democracy. Why?
Summit for Democracy
– Branko Milanovic, Social Europe: More than 100 nations’ presidents, prime ministers and kings met virtually at the Summit for Democracy on December 9th and 10th. It was the first meeting in history on this scale where the application—or ostensible application—of the democratic principle in the governance of national affairs was used as a criterion to invite participants to an international meeting. – The Summit for Democracy—a wrong idea (for the world)
– Magdalena Sepulveda, Social Europe: Much has been said about the ‘post-pandemic world’—the one that was to rise from the ashes, hopefully less materialistic and more sustainable, more supportive and even pro-feminist. But a new wave of infections and the emergence of variants seem to be pushing this era back once again and we are entering the third year of the global health crisis. As the world marks International Human Rights Day, hypocrisy and cynicism remain the order of the day—particularly on the part of rich countries, which pay lip-service to basic human rights while contributing to their denial to most of the planet’s population. – Tax justice—a crucial tool to advance human rights
– Stefanie Stantcheva, Project-Syndicate: Decades after the civil rights movement, America still has not closed the massive gap in socioeconomic outcomes between white and Black households. One of the biggest reasons, it seems, is that Americans’ polarized views on the issue are extraordinarily resistant to change, even in the face of new information. – Inside America’s Polarized Views on Race.
