The Impact of Remittances on Developing Countries

15-04-2014

The crisis that hit the western financial markets in 2008 has led to a severe global economic recession, which impacted and is still impacting migrants and migration policies worldwide. Despite the growing vulnerability of migrants, remittances have remained stable during and after the global economic downturn. Indeed, they continue to be a significant source of income for families and play a crucial role of co-insurance or risk mitigation in times of hardship. Moreover, remittances have proven to ...

The crisis that hit the western financial markets in 2008 has led to a severe global economic recession, which impacted and is still impacting migrants and migration policies worldwide. Despite the growing vulnerability of migrants, remittances have remained stable during and after the global economic downturn. Indeed, they continue to be a significant source of income for families and play a crucial role of co-insurance or risk mitigation in times of hardship. Moreover, remittances have proven to be a more sustainable source of foreign currency for developing countries than other capital inflows such as foreign direct investment, public debt or official development assistance. However, the nexus between remittances and development remains complex, especially with regards to the movement of people, which contributes to the spread of global interdependence at all levels – social, economic and political.

Condiciones macroeconómicas en la política de cohesión

14-12-2012

La presente nota trata de la propuesta de la Comisión de introducir condiciones macroeconómicas a gran escala en la política de cohesión. Principalmente, esto conllevaría la dependencia de los fondos de cohesión del respeto de las normas europeas en materia de gobernanza económica. Según la nota, dichas condiciones resultarían positivas para la gobernanza económica, pero es probable que tengan repercusiones negativas para la política de cohesión. Lo que es más importante, resulta dudoso que la propuesta ...

La presente nota trata de la propuesta de la Comisión de introducir condiciones macroeconómicas a gran escala en la política de cohesión.

Según la nota, dichas condiciones resultarían positivas para la gobernanza económica, pero es probable que tengan repercusiones negativas para la política de cohesión. Lo que es más importante, resulta dudoso que la propuesta de la Comisión contribuya a alcanzar el objetivo general de ambas políticas: el crecimiento económico equilibrado en Europa.

New Global Monetary System

This compilation of briefing papers was written by two members of the expert panel to the Special Committee on the Financial, Economic and Social Crisis. Its aim is to support the committee discussions on key questions arising from the crisis and thus feed into the preparations of the final report.

This compilation of briefing papers was written by two members of the expert panel to the Special Committee on the Financial, Economic and Social Crisis. Its aim is to support the committee discussions on key questions arising from the crisis and thus feed into the preparations of the final report. The briefing papers take a look on the previous experiences of world monetary systems such as Bretton Woods and the current exchange rate misalignment as well as taking into account the influence of modern trading platforms. This also implies a consideration of the role of the Euro at world stage. Both authors argue for improvements of the current systems but remain sceptical towards building up a new global monetary system.

The threat of 'currency wars': global imbalances and their effect on currencies

15-11-2010

Within the context of persisting international imbalances and a lingering crisis, there has been increased focus on the exchange rates between major economic areas, taking for example the heated debate between the US and China and unilateral action by numerous countries. It currently seems that a quantitative easing boom is back on the agenda globally. Inevitably, such policy actions will have effects on the global flows of capital and trade and have already attracted strong criticism from some emerging ...

Within the context of persisting international imbalances and a lingering crisis, there has been increased focus on the exchange rates between major economic areas, taking for example the heated debate between the US and China and unilateral action by numerous countries. It currently seems that a quantitative easing boom is back on the agenda globally. Inevitably, such policy actions will have effects on the global flows of capital and trade and have already attracted strong criticism from some emerging countries such as Brazil which complain about the loss of competiveness caused by the appreciation of their currency. The Monetary Experts Panel of ECON was asked help the European Parliament's ECON Committee understand the implications of the above mentioned developments. Consequently, in this compilation, the motives and policy options available to major economic actors with regard to their exchange rate and current accounts. Very importantly, the question on the impact on the euro area is raised, i.e. how the euro area can avoid remaining too passive and being the loser in these policy actions of global importance.
