Emerging Markets: Can the New Engines of Growth Become Global Financiers?

Monday, May 2, 2011 / 9:30 am - 10:45 am

Emerging countries used to be known for volatile equity markets, debt defaults and periodic balance-of-payments crises. But in every geographic region, these nations now seem to be firmly on the path to sustained economic growth and have accumulated sizable financial surpluses. Today it's the United States and Western Europe that seem unsure of how to regain their footing after the financial crisis of 2008. Are Western nations ready to accept the epic change and allow developing nations their time in the limelight? Are measures such as QE2 simply attempts to improve American competitiveness despite EM protests? Will inflation be the headwind that will derail EM progress? With banks in the developed world still recuperating, are EM financial institutions ready to provide the funds necessary to grow domestic demand?
