ECONOMISTS’ ROUNDTABLE: A FIVE-YEAR PROGNOSIS – THE END OF GROWTH?

09:45-11:00 Pavilion 4, Conference Hall 4.1

Highlights

With commodity prices now at a much lower level, we have two ways of reacting: either fully adjust to the new external environment and find a new centre of equilibrium for further growth, or continue spending reserves to cover the deficit in the balance of payments.

Maxim Oreshkin
Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation

We may grow much faster in the future, we may grow much slower in the future. But what we are feeling now is a bad debt overhang problem.

Kenneth Rogoff
Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Harvard University

Stimulating domestic migration could be a key instrument in overcoming economic stagnation.

Vladimir Mau
Rector, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration

If China can transform part of corporate debt into government debt in the next two years, there is hope that it will go back to a higher rate of growth.

David Daokui Li
Director, Center for China in the World Economy (CCWE), School of Economics and Management, Tsinghua University

What we discovered in the latest crisis is that both the market and the government can be wrong. [..]We need a new system of checks and balances between government and market forces.
