Milken Institute Review
Milken Institute Review Third Quarter 2014
July 2014

In this issue of the Milken Institute Review, Charles Castaldi, a former NPR reporter in Central America, explains how a Nicaraguan strongman and Chinese billionaire are planning to dig a $50 billion canal that will eclipse its rival to the south. "The decision to move forward on a project of this scale took a lot of time to make, of course," allows Castaldi. "Well, not really: the speed with which the concession was granted would make those who have been struggling obtain approval to build the 36-inch Keystone XL pipeline for the last six years green with envy."

Also in this issue: a report card on Abenomics, the Japanese prime minister's Hail Mary play to jolt the economy out of its rut; an analysis of the emerging Trans Pacific Partnership, "the most ambitious trade agreement the United States" has ever negotiated; an attack on the prevailing wisdom that Hollywood's road to success will be paved with ever-fewer, ever-more-expensive mega-movies; an argument for a no-strings-attached, "universal basic income approach" to reducing poverty; an explanation of why Russia's slippage into economic stagnation won't be easy to reverse; an estimate of the waste created by subsidies in countries that make gasoline as cheap as 9 cents a gallon at the pump; and an analysis of the unraveling of Thailand's economy and polity – and how it might be reversed.

Milken Institute Review
Milken Institute Review Second Quarter 2014
May 2014

In the latest Milken Institute Review, David E. Bloom, Elizabeth Cafiero-Fonseca, Mark E. McGovern of Harvard and Klaus Prettner of Germany’s University of Gottingen estimate the dimensions of the health crisis sneaking up on China and India. “The cost of non-communicable diseases (in particular, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes) will be high no matter what,” they conclude. But “unless the issue is given top priority, it will be utterly staggering. Action will of course be costly, but far less costly than the alternative.”

Also in this issue: A proposal to reform the income tax, stabilize entitlement spending and tame budget deficits in one grand bargain; a look at the role of financial derivatives in managing business risk and expanding access to capital; a response to jeremiads mourning the consolidation of the big carriers in the airline industry; a review of the Cash for Clunkers stimulus program of 2009; a view of the implications of our dependence on technology for continuing growth; and an argument that the rulers of Oman, Jordan and Morocco survived the Arab Spring because they deliver more of what their citizens crave.
