Report January 2011

The January Report highlights a new policy brief by Senior Scholar Jan Kregel that offers an alternative view of global imbalances and international reserve currencies. Kregel finds that export-led growth and free capital flows are the real causes of sustained international imbalances. The only way out of this predicament is to shift to domestic demand–led development strategies—and capital flows will have to be part of the solution. In a series of working papers, members of the Asian Development Bank examine technological change in India’s manufacturing sector, the role of trade facilitation and the impact of natural resource abundance in Central Asia, and the key to China’s continuing “economic miracle.”
